Reviewed August 18, 2012

We have been regulars at the Maharajah for over 20 years and can only say that you are greeted and served by friendly efficient staff, served top quality food in a restaurant with some of the best views in Cornwall - it does`nt get much better anywhere.

“Great atmosphere, fantastic food and a great view of newquay 5*.a must visit”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We booked a table last minute on a Friday in august. Not only did we get a table by the window, with amazing views. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Drinks delivered to the table in minutes with popadoms and chutneys, main meals followed in timely fashion. The food was fantastic, well prepared very tasty and you could even ask for child size portions. A great restaurant which we can highly recommend. A definite visit if you are in the area. Well done to everyone at the maharajah restaurant and thank you. . .

“Fantastic meal with friendly service”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We returned to the Maharajah in Newquay again, our favourite Indian restaurant in Cornwall, for a family birthday. The food was excellent and plentiful. Service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant was packed and many eagerly waiting for tables. Value for money and we will be going back!

“Best curry i've ever tasted...”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

I am a Newquay local and a regular visitor to the Maharajah- i honestly cannot fault the food, the views, the friendly welcome... everything about the Maharajah is simply wonderful and ensures that i cannot help but return time and time again! I have travelled in India, and also lived at the top of 'curry mile' (Brick Lane) in London for 5 years, and i can honestly say that The Maharajah is the best Indian restaurant i've ever had the pleasure to dine in. If you're visiting Cornwall, a visit to this special place is an absolute MUST :)

“This is by far the best indian in the town that I have tried”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Went to the Maharajah the first time purely because it was raining and we could not be bothered to walk to our intended destination. WOW , food is great , Service is best I have had anywhere in country in an indian. Staff advise and make changes to dishes to make sure everything is good for you. BOOK to get the view although its worth going even without it . The Take Away is also fast and quality is the same high standard.
