“Meal for two”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

A little disappointed the onion bhajis were dried overcooked flat pancakes with no hint of Onions and the meal was way too much
That we were overfaced.

Thank you for your review and I am sorry that your meal with us did not live up to your expectations. We have been making our onion bhajis the same way for over 35 years. I am very surprised that you could not taste the onions as we only use onions and gram flour - there are not other additives at all. Again my apologies that you felt over faced by the meal, perhaps I could suggest that in future you ask your waiter for small portions. I do hope you will come and eat with us again and that you will have a better experience next time.

“Really Good and Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Had a lovely meal last night. Having walked through Newquay in the freezing cold it was great to walk into a beautifully warm place. Service was excellent, as was the food and the atmosphere.
I couldn't eat all mine so they packed it up to take away. It was very reasonably priced too.Would definitely go there again.

“Mustafa Eisa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I was visiting The UK with my family after spending nearly 3 Weeks in Europe. And was naturally Home Sick and missing Indian Cuisine. To our delight we chanced upon Maharaja. Walking in and not knowing what to expect we were amazed with the stunning Views the restaurant had to offer. Our experience was further enhanced by the friendly staff and the authentic Indian food they served. My daughter to date says this is the best Indian meal she has ever eaten - and that includes the best restaurants in our country (India). I would definitely return to Newquay - even if it was just for ONE meal at Maharaja.

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.
