I found the staff rather poor in their service when I visited here recently. I accidentally spilled some lime pickle on the floor and when the waiter came over the clear it up he muttered something about cleaning charges which seemed unnecessary. Our table water...More

This restaurant has a nice ambiance and presents as very clean. Some of the tables have very little space between them and some are affected by the overhead heater that distributes very warm air that could make eating at some of the tables uncomfortable. Some...More

Went last night family of 3. Arrived in the cold and rain, the waiter sat us at a table near the heater so we would be comfortable. Food was delicious, drinks reasonably priced and service was excellent. The waiter recommended the onion pilau which was...More

The decor is very colourful and patterned, but comfortable. The food tasted amazing. I was thinking 'surely this is worth top marks' - but unfortunately we suffered afterwards with massive indigestion, so it's unlikely we'll go back until that memory fades. The staff were very...More

Visited maharajah last night with family and was disappointed. Popadoms fairly expensive and the pickle tray doesn't come with raiti. Mango chutney tasted like it was from a jar rather than homemade. We skipped starters and went straight for mains... Lamb tikka masala was mostly...More
