Three couple went for dinner on Saturday night 9thJuly. The setting is upstairs in a strip mall. Didn't notice a lift for wheel chair access. We arrived around 1730 and had the pick of the seating except about three tables. I am still not sure who our waiter or waitress was as we just flagged down the nearest one to... More

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Maharajah. As mentioned in previous reviews, the views at night were outstanding. The food was all exceptional and perfectly prepared. The prices are good value. The service is a little slow and unprofessional, but the manager was friendly and visible. Very good!

In a mall with great views,this place has lots of potential but it turned out be very mediocre. We were seated at the window with a great view but the tablecloth had holes in it and our waitress Precious was unfriendly and removed some of the dishes while i was still eating creating the impression that she wanted us to...

From the time you walk up those stairs into the restaurant right through to the time you leave the restaurant, the service you get is excellent!! The food is exceptionally flavorsome and the wait in between courses is timed well. The only thing that did not taste too great is the Soji they offered on the day I visited. The... More

I don't know what anyone is talking about writing the reviews and complaining about the food. Must be extra full of nonsense compared to the average person. I discovered the Maharaj via Groupon some time ago, and have been going there once a week since. The food is absolutely great, my Favorite is the Korma dishes, and Butter chicken. Last... More

Very good Indian food. Waitress was friendly and efficient. We sat at the windows on the Western side of the restaurant and had a lovely view over the Northern suburbs. What amazes me is the taste is totally different at each Indian restaurant you go to. The chefs obviously all have their own subtle variation on the recipes. Would definitely... More

Went on a voucher, which should have been an indication of how bad this restaurant is. Service is poor and food is mediocre. We had a party of 10 and we were given a waiter that was new. Waiter had no idea what a lassi was, had to go twice to query and eventually a more "senior" waiter came to... More

Restaurant in strip style mall with safe and secure parking. Food was mediocre to say the least! I can cook a better curry at home... The service wasn't very professional; seemed like our waitress's first day on the job or she hadn't been trained properly. I was so disappointed as I love curry. A few years ago I visited this...

Have been to the Maharaja restaurant a few times over the years and about 3 times in the last 12 months... the food has been consistently good and the service matched as well.
