Description: The Maharajah restaurant which was established in 1980 is open from 5.30 pm until late, seven days a week. The restaurant is the only real Indian restaurant in Newquay (and possibly Cornwall) here you will find traditional Indian food served in a restaurant with the most outstanding sea views.

We love a good curry and being NORTHERN we know what we want.
This place is great and ticks all the boxes. Delicious food,all the favorites and more, they are great with kid's and have really special view's over Newquay.
Sometimes the older ladies that serve seem a bit grumpy but they are busy I suppose. The owner is a lovely guy and more than makes up for their stern manner as he is super friendly and warm.
We are So glad this is now our local Indian we love the food and the view is just a fantastic bonus for us!

Hi!

Thank you for your great feedback, we are very pleased you enjoyed your meals, the service of our staff and the warmth of our hospitality, we do like to point out that our staff who have been with us for a very long time are not grumpy at all, it may have seemed that way due to the restaurant being busy most of the time and our staff rushing in order not to make our guests wait too long between the courses,so we apologise for that. we look forward to seeing you more in the near future as Maharajah has become your local restaurant!

Take care

Friends brought us to this restaurant, having tried it numerous times before. I am so pleased that they did. We enjoyed a good Indian meal, teamed with a very friendly proprietor and unrivalled sea views. I would recommend anyone to eat here. You won't be disappointed.

Having lived in the "balti belt" this place is the best bar none. Extensive menu, expertly cooked, attentive staff and a great view. We have visited many times and have never been disappointed. Always our first choice. Make sure you book at busy times.

Four of us went here on a Wednesday and the place was really busy. The staff were all frendly and we did not have to wait to long for a table. We had great views from our table over looking the bay. The food came out well presented and hot. My wife and mother-in-law thought the foods was some of the best they have tasted in an Indian. I have had better but dont take that away from the fact that the food is good quality. Well worth a visit

Indian cuisine is easily my favorite and Maharajah is one of my favorite restaurants. The decor is tasteful, modern and light with some of the best dining views in Newquay. Make sure you book as on weekends it can be very busy and the fact it is also popular in the week is no fluke. The service is always friendly without being over the top and the food is amazing. I'm guilty of nearly always choosing the Dopiaza when I go but I have worked my way through much of the menu and everything i've tried has been delicious. The Lassis are also amazing so make sure you try them.
