I always think of this as family dinner because my friends and I share everything at the table. We order a few different dishes and they give everyone a plate so you can dip/mix/stir/sample to your heart's desire. The naan bread is also wonderful. Service is great but the food is a bit slow so be prepared to wait (it's... More

We tried something different at Maharaja, last night, for dinner. As an appetizer, we had Gobi Manchuria, which is a well seasoned fried cauliflower. We ordered it at medium heat level, which was spicy enough. The complimentary dipping sauce which came with the chips was better that before - more flavorful and thicker. My wife had Channa Masala [Tomato, onions,... More

Have been to Maharaja Indian Restaurant several times before, and I almost always had their Vindaloo with Lamb. Vindallo is a curry like stew, with a meat and potatoes. It is always served with an aromatic Basmati Rice. My dining companion had Methe Chicken, which was excellent. We had Samosas as an appetizer, which was great as usual. The Naan... More

Had dinner at Maharaja again. Had Chicken Tandoori in the past, which was not great - made from diced chicken instead of whole pieces. This time we had cauliflower [gobi manchuria] as an appetizer and Tandoori Shrimp as a shared entree. The Tandoori was colored very red, sweet and with tiny shrimp. Not the best dish. We are giving up... More

This place is the only Indian joint in Oxford. If you want something different this might be the place for you but it is a bit expensive. The Naan is excellent.

During the last two visits, food and service have been excellent. Last week we had Methi Chicken, a curry with fenugreek, Channa Masala [tomatos, onions and chickpeas], and Lamb Vindaloo. Samosa were our shared appetizer. Maharaja has the several levels of heat or spicyness and the dishes came out at the proper level requested. Both the chicken and the lamb... More

This place has the worst food I've ever had and they simply refuse to improve the quality or standards. Just the fact that they're the only Indian restaurant in town so people who've never tasted Indian food elsewhere can't compare. Bad food. Strongly advise to not go.

My husband picked up Indian take-out for us and had it waiting when we arrived in Oxford. Definitely not a cheap meal, but very good. We love Indian and have eaten it all over the world and we will definitely be back. I love the fact that they use really hot spices! Awesome! I can't wait to go to the... More

the food is decent. i wish the owner who is from southern india would offer more dishes from there. it would be great to have more regional indian food than the same old "tikka masala" and "tandoori" offerings. more seasonal vegetable dishes would really set the menu apart and make this a dining destination. service needs serious help

Nice and clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Prices are very reasonable. Food arrived relatively fast. Ordered the shrimp and chicken hibachi. Very very good. So much food I took 80% of it home. Not complaining because that was my lunch for 2 days. I will return again very soon.
