We frequented this place twice during our stay in Paris. Firstly because it's close by to our hotel. Secondly the food was simply good and tasty. Aplenty of choice with reasonable price too for such a restaurant with elaborated decor to give one an authentic feel of an Indian Restaurant. The staff were friendly and accommodative too. Perfect for even... More

Our experience at Le Maharajah was fantastic. This place deserves a review that too a good one almost after a year of our visit to Paris as I can still recall the tasty Indian food I had there.

The restaurant is very well decorated and maintained. The staff is very friendly and food is really delicious. The restaurant is also very near to metro station 10 - Maubert - Mutualité, say 100 meters, which is advantageous for the tourists like us. We ordered in a starter ´Murg Tikka´ which was very less in quantity but really good in... More

Visited for the first time last night with a friend, and this place did not disapppoint! From the start, the service was very attentive and the atmosphere was bright and colorful. My friend ordered the Makhani Tikka while I had the Rogan Gosht. Both dishes had such rich, deep flavors. For dessert, we tried the Gulab Jambu and were pleasantly... More

Tired of French food, we wanted something more spicy. Based on reviews we chose Le Maharajah. A great choice. A wide selection of (standard "British") Indian food. The real surprise was that the food was well spiced - too often the food in Paris is toned-down to appease local preferences. In Le Maharajah the spices are full on and very... More

Really nice servers, food was good, no complaints. The restrooms need work, furnishings need updating. Service and food matter, so a very good review!

I could have left this space just blank. The restaurant is good. The quality of food is good. The waiters are prompt. The food is sufficiently authentic Indian. etc... This restaurant is like Chilean wines. You will not get disappointed with it. It doesn't excel in any particular thing. Just a lot of decent attributes accumulate to make it trustable... More

Loved the food, didn't expect it to be as good as it was. We finished everything. The only thing that was not great for us was the dessert. But loves the main meal. We had the vegetarian options only but it was really awesome. Especially the yogurt. They were open during the day which was a surprise as most other... More

Le Maharajah restaurant in the heart of Paris’ Left Bank proudly claims its place as the first Indian restaurant in the capital, and it’s still delighting clients from all over town. The atmosphere is magical, exotic. With spotlit alcoves for Indian portraits, hand-carved chairs, pink table linens, and everywhere the heightened décor, colours and aromas of the subcontinent, Le Maharajah brings India to France. The menu focuses on North Indian cuisine: the specialty of the house is lamb curry with aubergines which you should have with the cheese naans. Well-chosen wines and careful service make this a local favourite.
