“Excellent indian food and service”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Exceptional service and quality. We regularly eat Indian meals in some of the best places in Leicester and this was equal to any of them.
Vusant, the owner, deserve a special mention. Absolutely first class, very helpful but also very amusing. He made the whole evening a special experience. Jamie Oliver needs to send his staff to Maharajah for lessons!
If you enjoy Indian food this is worth travelling a long way to enjoy.
It's also very good value.

“Bland”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

This was the only curry house in newquay so we gave it a go being a curry lover I was eager to taste the best authentic curry in newquay, boy was I disappointed! All 5 dishes ordered by my family looked and tasted the same, even the vegetarian dish?! Looked like they had opened a tin of tomatoes and warmed them up! Hugely disappointed. When we got up to leave the owner asked us if everything was on, when we told him our issues his reply was "if you wanted something special you should've asked". Great reply! Would not recommend, rude staff, long wait.

“Food fantastic, stunning location”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

I always like to have a good curry when on holiday and looking at the reviews it looked like being the best in the area so we thought we would try it. I have to say the food was brilliant, it was one of the best indian curries i have had. The food was very tasteful and fresh. The views from the window of Newquay beach were stunning and the service was first class. Only downside was the fact there was five of us and they sat us on a table for four which was a bit crammed. I can however understand this because the restaurant was very busy.

“Fabulous good, topped off in a stunning location with excellent service.”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

My self and my partner visited Maharajah on Friday 4th July 2014. From the moment we entered the restaurant their was a fabulous atmosphere, we had a sea view table which added to this. Attention to detail is second to none. The restaurant is laid out well, not over crowed and cramped like some restaurants at all.

There is a wide selection of food on the menu, all very reasonably priced. The food was delicious, and we were well looked after very well with the service. We asked for extra time between our starter and main, which was fine. The food portions are very generous and well presented.

We will defiantly be returning on our next visit to Newquay.
