Firstly, a bit of background...I travel a lot and enjoy staying in a number of hotels. During this time I visit a high number of restaurants. For the people looking for a quick answer ... THIS IS SIMPLY THE BEST INDIAN RESTAURANT I HAVE BEEN TOO, NATIONALLY. To think it is in the same country as me is a blessing.
This being our first time in Newquay we wanted to visit a nice restaurant for some good food. Talking to 2 locals (taxi driver and shop assistant) both suggested Maharajah before any other restaurant. We took this as a sign.
This is the first time I have eaten a meal and felt regret...regret knowing the location of this restaurant is 2.5 hours away from me, and I wont be able to visit more often.
Value for money + Quality of food
We arrived with a party of 6, without a booking. Although they were busy. they were happy to accommodate us. We waited with drinks in the bar area, we were told it would be a 30 minute wait, and it was very close to this. We were happy.
We went for a meal for 6 option. Which gave us 6 starters and a variety of curry dishes (all different strength of tastes). This also included a lot of side dishes and desert for all. This worked out at around £20 each. The dishes were laid out in front of us and this gave us the option to try all varieties of currys and sides. the party included 4 large men..which didn't manage to finish the dishes. We were surprised ourselves!!
Some members of the party cannot handle hot food, the options given in regards to curry dishes ment this was not a problem, in fact they walked out liking Indian food!
Location - Centre of Newquay, but not in the heart of. Those looking for a quiet relaxed night out, will not find themselves in the hussle of clubs and it's music. but those looking to go out for drinks afterwards, will find this is in very short walking distance to the clubs.
Scenic view - It over looks the beach. Amazing views, couples should visit just to watch the sunset!
Staff - Staff are all friendly and helpful. Staff very experienced, the timing of refreshments and delivery/taking away of food was very good. Customer service is where I felt Maharajah were unrivaled. Staff are happy to have a talk and joke with you, they don't just come up and ask the usual "is everything okay with your meal?" , they have more confidence then that.
