After living in Toulouse for almost 2 months I decided to try Indian food for the first time as in general Toulouse don't have a good reputation in Indian food. We decided to try le maharaja and it was a good decision, as food was superb (meat was really good)service was good and very nice atmosphere. Waiters speak both English and French and are willing to explain every dish.butter chicken and plat maharaja is really good also in deserts kulfi is delicious. And free digestive in the end makes it a superb experience. For Indian food lovers a must restaurant.

Good food, but some details made our experience there not so good:
-It took a lot to get served (we spent 2h30 in the restaurant for entry, main course and dessert)
-Waiters are friendly, but only two for the crowded restaurant on Thursday evening is way too few
-Our table was close to the kitchen: oil and spices smell sticked to our clothes
-Quality of food is good, but portions are not too big for the price you pay

We were wary of visiting an Indian restaurant in Toulouse as France's reputation for this cuisine is not the best, however Le Maharaja was a very pleasant surprise. The signage and decor is very much along the lines of a 1980s UK Indian restaurant and the food reflects that to a certain extent as well. Stylish is not the word, but it's comfortable enough. The menu includes all of the favourites you would expect in an Indian restaurant in the UK and the food is well-executed. The service is prompt and friendly, with English (and French) spoken fluently by the staff. Portions are not big, but you won't leave hungry. Food is very reasonably priced (perhaps EUR15/person), beer is typically-priced for Toulouse (EUR4 for a small bottle of Kingfisher).

We are Brits currently living in Toulouse and thought it might be helpful to address a couple of Traveler777Texas' comments. Parking is always available at Place Capitole and the restaurant is a short walk down Rue Gambetta from there (in fact, virtually anywhere in central Toulouse can be reached within a short walk from one of the secure underground car parks operated by Vinci). Le Maharaja is opposite a bar called Le Petit Voisin, where many young people hang out. The behaviour can be rowdy but we have never got the impression that passers-by would ever be involved. Most restaurants do not open their kitchens until 7:30 or 8pm, which may explain the long wait for food after a 7pm arrival.

We went to eat at Le Maharaja after reading all the reviews. We really love Indian food and know there are many choices in downtown Toulouse. We narrowed it down to Le Maharaja. First of all, you have to park at least 1KM away in a parking garage and the area to walk at night is not very safe I felt.(We witnessed a fight among several young men outside the restaurant door!)

We had reservations at 7pm and arrrived about 10 minutes early. We were seated at that time and ordered our food at 7pm. We ordered two curries, nans, samosas, and some poulet tikka. We waited 1 hour before we were served our food. We know in France, the service is pretty slow, but this was the longest we ever waited. The curries were just ok - not terrrible, but certainly not anything to rave about. The quality of the meat was very good, but the curries were very dry. The environment was also not very appealing. It seemed very crowded with all the pictures and statues in the small room. I don't feel it is worth the drive, hassle of parking and wait for this restaurant. L'Agra in Blagnac is a much better choice I feel if you are looking for excellent Indian food and good service. It is also in a less busy area with no problem for parking.
