During my stay in Colchester I ordered a takeaway from Mahrani and the food had no flavour whatsoever. I ordered chicken Makhani and Tikka Massala and both of these dishes were dreadful, had no taste and were excessively sweet. Would not recommend and was a waste of £25.

On our recent stay in Colchester we thoroughly enjoyed a meal here. We often enjoy an Indian meal and this place rates highly in our opinion. It was very busy which is always a good sign. We found the service to be excellent and I really enjoyed the Goan beer. Recommended!

Had dinner here early, was empty but fantastic, had one of their special dishes but asked it for a little hotter and it was just lush, partner had a milder curry and that was amazing aswell, very good prices and right on the high street, perfect. Loved this restaurant and I want to go back.....same time next year!

The service was great. A friendly atmosphere however the food was a little salty for our liking. Good location for watching the world go by.

Really had a wonderfull time in Maharani restaurant. I was almost more than a hour spent with my family. My rating for chicken tikka chat starter is ***** I feel the items could be little more spicy, but all are tasty and excellent. The service is great. I recommend and love to visit again ☺

Thank Saravanan R
