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.

We, family of three, went there for dinner on our first day in Paris but there was not table available; the restaurant was busy and again the next day we were there for lunch and the food was very tasty except that the Butter Naan was not as good as the normal Indian Naan. The service was good and the... More

We went here at 10pm for dinner and ordered a lamb curry, a potato and vegetable curry, a naan and rice. All the food was cooked and presented very nicely by people who take pride in the food. The food can be spicier if you ask - they default to mild French tastes. The lamb was very tender. We had... More

Generally, we liked our meal. The currys were tasty, the decor and ambiance were nice, but the price was a little too high, especially since the nan and rice had to be ordered separately (and the nan was just one round). The mango lassi was very good.

The title says it all really. The food was great, really delicious but the service was terrible I was kept waiting for 5-10 minutes on a couple of occasions even after the waiter and/or waitress had acknowledged that I was waiting. If the food wasn't so good I'd have rated it 1 star.

Le mahrajah resturant is actually overrated and i would rate it as a middle class reaturant, the seats are not comfortable for having dinner or lunch and in terms of food i didnt like the taste since there is nothing special and the baryani tastes like chinese rice however the veg sambosa was better than the main course.

Booked last minute via TripAdvisor and received a discount. Restaurant was quite quiet. Service was fine. Food was tasty but not very hot at all. Food was reheated upon request. Pistachio dessert and Nutella nan were delicious. Overall, tasty food and great discount.

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

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.
