We visited the maharani to celebrate my other halfs birthday and our meal was fabulous. The resturant was really busy for a wednesday but manik and his team did a fantastic job of making us welcome. The food was top notch as always.

Manik and his team cooked up an absolute feast for my mums 60th birthday for 26 hungry adults. The staff cooked it all at the restaurant and we picked it up to take back to the house. A great selection of vegetarian and meat dishes were made with plenty of side orders and poppadoms. Everyone at the party was extremely... More

Came here with the team from Eastern Angles Theatre Company and everyone thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Maharani. Food came out altogether and tasted delicious. No complaints. Couldn't ask for better service and welcome from the staff too. We will be back for sure!

First visit to Ipswich and friends (G & E) took me out to this busy Indian restaurant for our Friday night meal. Arrived on spec and it was heaving. G&E are regulars so the management were more than happy to find us a table as long as we didn't mind waiting a wee while. Brought us drinks in the mean... More

Another great meal in what we consider to be the best Indian restaurant in Suffolk. It's a 40 mile round trip for us but well worth it. Manik and his staff always offer a warm welcome and the food is consistently great. Whilst there is a large speciality section on the menu we usually stick to our favourites (Balti Chicken... More

I visited with my partner and elderly father last week-end. We were warmly greeted and made to feel most welcome. Our food was quite simply outstanding. Fresh, appropriately spicy, perfectly presented. Clearly the kitchens were on excellent form. Having eaten to our hearts content I asked for a metal container to take home the remainder of the (chicken naga) curry.... More

The Maharani is without doubt the best Indian restaurant in Ipswich. I have been eating there and getting takeaways from there regularly for 20+ years and have never had a bad meal. The service is always friendly and efficient. Manik, the owner always greets his guests and buys them a drink after their meal. There is never any rush to... More
