I visited the Maha-raj-a with three work colleagues for an evening meal on a Monday. We chose it particularly as one of my work colleagues wanted halal food and the Maharaja was the only restaurant in Northampton that I contacted that replied, confirming they could provide a halal menu. The food was excellent throughout, we all ordered something different and... More

Me and my partner have been here on a few occasions for a meal. We are always politely greeted and well looked after by staff. Lovely atmosphere and the food is delicious and they have many vegetarian options. Will definitely keep going!!

The family had a Sunday lunch there and the food and service were great albeit expensive. The best Indian we have tried in Northampton.

We had a nice meal there a few months ago so decided to go again. My friends ordered a chicken mossalader and a prawn mossalader. I ordered a nawab stick. When the curries came, we noticed that the sauce was exactly the same colour so was the texture. We decided to do a taste test and they tasted exactly the... More

We are sorry to learn of your recent dining experience at our restaurant. Most curries do in fact differ in flavour, texture and spice but unfortunately the two dishes chosen by you on the evening are cooked in a very similar style with the usual tandoori spices and pastes. The menu does give the customer the opportunity to have the... More

The staff in this restaurant are brilliant and the atmosphere is so friendly and relaxed. There is no rush to get you out of the door.The restaurant is clean and well appointed but the food is very bland and ordinary.

Have used Maharaja for years but recently called for a delivery and the member of staff I spoke to on the phone was extremely rude, I will be taking my business elsewhere for now on. If you want a curry this place is OK, just don't expect to be shown any manors by the staff.

MSAChowdhury, Manager at Maharaja, responded to this review

It's disappointing and frustrating when someone writes a review which is biased and totally inaccurate. The customer did in fact ring the restaurant and order a takeaway for one person (value of £9/10). The customer then asked for the takeaway to be delivered and was politely informed by a member of staff that we DO NOT usually deliver. The staff... More
