I love Indian cuisine. I cook it frequently at home and Maharaja is home cooked food. There's lots of spices in the dishes, such as cumin and curry. The naan bread is amazing! I would recommend an order for every meal. It's a great place for vegetarians and vegans too. Also, Maharaja is convenient to many hotels and the airport.

Went there last night with 4 kids. Seating was fast (Saturday, 7pm), but we were given water and festered for 15 minutes afterwards (a major irritant for me). It seems that they were setting up the buffet line for a large party. After that, service was great. The food was very good. I had the special mixed grill. Everything from... More

We went in for the lunch buffet half hour before closing time. The staff was very friendly, however, we were disappointed that they did not provide us any fresh hot food, considering there was a half hour still remaining. Overall the food was good, not great.

A friend recommended this as the best Indian restaurant in the Chicago area. We were travelling out of O'Hare and decided to plan dinner there. It was truly a fabulous Indian restaurant (and we have been to many). It was some of the best Indian food we have had in the USA. The chicken Khadi was really remarkable.

If you are really needing to get your indian food fix, this place will do but don't expect good service of great food. Everything about this place is just average. I am sure there are plenty of other great restaurants to eat at. The hot and sour soup at this place was inedible, the rest of what we ordered was... More

Went there often since it was very close to our work place. Had a great experience with the service and the food as well. Attentive staff and a very hospitable manager which is rare in Indian Restaurants in Chicago. Must try their goat dishes!!!!

Came here for their lunch buffet today and was pleasantly surprised. I'm a bit of a picky eater, but finished off a couple of plates. The butter chicken was delicious and I used the extra sauce to soak up the nan bread that was served when we sat down. It was delicious. There were a lot of vegetarian options. One... More

A typical Sunday evening includes saying goodbye to my family in North Carolina and flying to Chicago or Milwaukee. More times than not, it's Chicago. Upon picking up the rental car, I head straight to Maharaja. An inviting atmosphere, courteous staff that always welcomes you with open arms regardless of the hour. I always arrive late on Sunday evenings, when... More

A great place to eat. We had lunch here on October 4th. 2015. It was a well spread buffet containing Indian dishes. I liked the goat meat preparation and hot Gulab Jamun (a seeet dish).

Went for lunch with some friends and we ate the buffet. Great selections and lots of food. Worth the price!
