You want authentic Indian food? You can't go past this place! Attentive staff, comfortable surroundings, but the food....oh boy! A wide selection of dishes, and the wonderful thing is that every one had its own unique taste p- as they should do! Significant was the fact that there was very little left at the end of the end of the meal. We ate heartily. Well done, Maharaja Indian Restaurant!

Tried a few weeks ago for lunch and walked out as didn’t enjoy the experience - it was quiet but we were put on the table facing a wall, it smelt very heavily of incense and bleach, and the waiter seemed disinterested in serving us.

Putting it down to likely a one time thing, we ordered take away and it was not good at all. The food tasted like tomato soup and the naan was inedible.

Privately emailed them to let them know of our experiences but haven’t heard anything back from them!?

Great food. Much larger servings than the usual Indian bowls so very good value for money.It was very busy for a Monday night so this shows it’s consistently meeting customer expectations. Very nice ambience in a restored villa.

The place was packed on a sat night and presumably does a good level of business in general. There’s absolutely no excuse for the condition of the car park area behind the restaurant which resembled the Somme in WW1. To arrive and find yourself grounded in mud and the bottom of the car scraping against a rock whilst helplessly manoeuvring around wheels spinning is not a good start to an evening especially when alighting from your car you find yourself ankle deep in mud. The business is evidently profit taking and not investing in basic infrastructure. Get the area properly sealed or close it off - it was clearly signposted as parking and totally unsuitable.
