“Would definitely return”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Delicious, freshly made food. Nice staff. Huge portions! Pretty restaurant. I went there in the heart of winter (23rd December) en route to spend Christmas in the Isles of Scilly, and imagine that it must be even more wonderful in summer.

“Sunday opening off season”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

There aren't many restaurants open on a Sunday in the off season here, but I was delighted to find this gem of an Indian restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and the service was quick and efficient. I asked for the chef's recommendation for a fairly spicy vegetarian main course and they suggested I try the Dewani handi. It was delicious. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone who likes excellent Indian food!

“Hot hot hot! But lovely!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

I had a veggie saag, poppadoms & pilau rice. Fragrant and rather hot just as I like it with lots of saag/spinach but I had been eating all day so I couldn't finish my curry as I wished. I enjoyed it and the service was great. It was very quiet and late when I went to dine with two friends. Loved the Bollywood on the screens, music and decor all very nice. I wasn't sure about some of the poppadom dips, one tasted like boot polish. My friends were crying with the heat of the food which was rather funny. I would definitely eat there again.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your meal but am concerned about the boot polish! Did you speak to your waiter? We would have replaced it for you if we knew that you did not like it. I hope your friends have recovered from their tears - because we always cook from fresh sometimes the 'heat' in the dishes varies according to the chillies that are delivered to us. I hope you will come and see us again soon.

“Valentines day”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We have eaten at the Maharajah a number of times in the past and was delighted when they were able to fit us in at short notice on Valentine's Day. As usual the staff were very attentive without over doing it. They managed to get get the balance just right whereas some places can be over-attentive, or worst still ignore you. Once the food arrived it looked good and tasted great.

If you arrive when it is light and are seated in the conservatory there are great views out to sea and along the north Cornish coast. What could be better, great food, friendly staff, pleasant surroundings, a chilled glass of wine and views of the Cornish coast. I highly recomend it.
