“Best Indian meal ever”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Stayed at Mercure, tried this restaurant only by chance and for convenience. After just having had Indian at a less than impressive Townsville Indian restaurant, it reminded us to do a review of the most amazing meal we so enjoyed in Palm Cove. at Maharajas we were immediately welcomed and served by the loveliest waitress, then served the most delicious butter chicken, and sumptuous duck dish and onion naan we have ever tasted. Thankyou for such a memorable meal. This was a real dining experience, superb spice blending. Definitely a highlight of our FNQ holiday in terms of eating establishments (and we sampled many in six weeks).

“Best food ever”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Me and my friends wanted to try something new and heard about this amazing indian restaurant called Maharajas in Palm cove and after some deliberation decided to experiment with some unique tasting food. Upon arrival we were seated very warmly by the staff, a foreboding to the wonderful service throughout the night. The food was delicious and always served with a friendly smile, great atmosphere, had a very memorable night and I would definitely recommend Maharajas!!

“Surprisingly excellent.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Within the first couple of minutes sitting down here we were concerned how the meal would go, service initially was chaotic but as the meal went on endeared itself into charmingly chaotic. The food, was excellent, no two ways about it, come here for the food and allow everything else to sail on past. The quality of the chicken meat was top notch, no stringy thigh gristle here, the sauces bursting with deep flavour and the tandoor cooked starters immaculately cooked and presented in style on skewers in brass pots. I would highly recommend, an unexpected treasure in palm cove and we will definitely be back.

“Best Indian in town!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Without a doubt the best Indian restraunt in Cairns! And it's situated in palm cove - arguably the best suburb of Cairns...

Went to dinner tonight, table of 6 and we couldn't have asked for a better night! Great professional and friendly service. Food came out on time and was deliciously. Best dish - without a doubt!!!! Butter chicken!!!

It is my favourite Indian place in town! I've tried all the others but maharajas wins hands down!
