Description: Restaurante Maharaja, se encuentra en el corazon del Raval y desde el ano 2001 acercamos la cocina hindu a Barcelona, invitandoles a descubrir el delicioso patrimonio gastronomico desarrollado en la India a lo largo de los siglos. La India es una enorme mezcla de estilos culinarios, cada uno con su propio distintivo: especias, hierbas, ingredientes y tecnicas, muchas de las cuales se evidencian en nuestros esfuerzos, ya que los platos pueden contener una mezcla de hasta 40 o mas especias y hierbas, que nos ayudan a crear platos realmente tentadores. Los detalles decorativos del restaurante recrean el ambiente de un palacio de Maharaja. Las paredes estan adornadas con retratos de la realeza, complementados con objetos de laton y distintos detalles de cristal. Desde Restaurante Maharaja les damos la mas cordial bienvenida.

The restaurant has a great terrace and is located right in the Rambla del Raval, we thought that food would be average at maximum, but it was a pleasant surprise. The portions are generous, the prices quite fair and service is quite good. One of us had the non veg set thali, and was unable to finish it, this includes a dessert as well, although they have not much choice. The other two of us had a la carte dishes, an appetizer platter, with a variety of pakoras and samosas, was good and plentiful, although a bit bland in taste. We then had the vegetarian kofta and paneer chilli, with some naan bread. The kofta was delicious and the paneer was nice and fresh, although in the picture it seems like a dry dish and it came instead with a "chindian" chilli sauce. The waiter was serious but efficient and not pushy at all. The ambience in the terrace was really pleasant, overall a good experience.

Had the chicken boonah and lamb curry, with a chana. The flavours were awesome. The waiter recommended not ordering too much, and we were grateful for his advice. This is some of the best indian food I have tasted and we used to live in east london. It is found in rambla del raval, which is still unspoilt by too many tourists, and has agreat atmosphere.

Lovely food, good service. Highly recommended.

We've visited this restaurant since many years now, and time and time again, we're pleasantly surprised about the quality and tastefulness of all the dishes we've tried so far. You can enjoy your meal on the terrace or inside. The food is always fresh and the waiters already now us, so now they come and make a friendly talk with us.
It's far better than the Indian restaurants we know in Belgium, so we'l surely visit again!

This was our first introduction to Indian cuisine, and I must say it was very successful. We ordered the menu set with chicken curry and a tikka chicken. The main dishes and dressings we very good in our opinion. Service was fast and the staff were very helpfull. The price were reasonable as for Barcelona.

Vegetarian food was tasteless, meat was good quality. Service was pretty slow. Overpriced, but most places around La Rambla are unfortunately.
