About Maharaja of India

Handily situated right in London’s thriving theatreland is the Maharajah of India restaurant, a spot popular with tourists and Londoners looking for great food in a sea of choices. With its unassuming frontage it would be all too easy to pass the Maharajah of India by in favour of something with a little more bling. But head inside and you’ll find a cosy and welcoming restaurant with swift, efficient and friendly service. The excellent food is traditionally Indian with additional specialities, thalis and great sizzling dishes offered besides the usual. English dishes are also available while Indian sweets are a delight worth saving a little space for.

Went to the Charring Cross rd "Maharaja of India" for a celebration with friends. Staff were were friendly, attentive and helpful.

The food was all great and reasonably priced, but it would have been nice if there were more unusual dishes as well as the standard Biryani, Korma, Passanda etc.

Overall a very pleasant experience.

We went to the Maharaja of India, just off Leicester Square on a midweek evening. They were very prompt in taking our drinks order and providing some poppadoms, but got a bit confused when taking our food order - which became obvious when a couple of side dishes failed to turn up initially. They were quick to correct the mistake and the food itself was very good. Would recommend to people wanting no frills Indian, even if the service could be better.

Food took ages to come out, it tasted average at best, there was a draft coming through the door and to cap it off they tried to charge 15% service charge. I will not be going back.

Regulars to this restaurant. Great food and service in a central location. What is there not to love about The Maharaja???

We came here post-theatre late on a Friday night. The service was prompt, attentive and friendlly. We had the Lamb Karahi and the Chicken Jal Frezi - both of which were delicious. All in all, a very good restaurant and one which we would not hesitate to return to.

Very attentive staff, good food. Reasonably priced. Good value for money. Staff kindly offered a courtesy liquer at the end of the meal - nice gesture and much appreciate.

It was pretty sticky in the Maharaja of India on a sunny lunchtime. The Fish Goa main course wasn't available, but, in every other respect, service was very good. We managed two courses and a leisurely coffee in under 90 minutes and could easily have been in and out within an hour had we been in a hurry. The lamb passanda and tandoori chicken main courses were good without being exceptional.

Two of us rocked up at Maharaja of India for an informal lunch. Service was swift but unobtrusive and the Rogan Josh and Chicken Dopiaza were pretty much as one would expect. Side dishes were also fine. We were both being boring and sticking to soft drinks. That might explain how we got out for well under £20 a head for two courses and drinks. The complimentary coffees at the end of the meal helped in that regard.

I dinned at The Maharaja of india at 7pm on a friday night. It was relatively busy and had a decent atmosphere. I ordered the chicken tikka and I must say it was very nice. The only let down was our waiter, although not rude he was hardly friendly and when we ordered seemed to try and sell us more food, i.e you should have a side dish, Nan bread? More rice etc which I found a bit uncomfortable as I believe we had already ordered quite a lot of 2 people. But apart from that it was good.

The Maharajah of India is a lovely restaurant just off Leicester square. The service was efficient and friendly from start to finish. My friend and I had a great meal which was quite reasonable. My friend was even persuaded to try a pistachio kulfi (ice-cream desert), which she adored. We will be back.

The Maharajah of India remains one of the better value Indian restaurants in the area. The decor might be a little bit tired, but the service is efficient and friendly. We only had time for main courses; the butter chicken and the lamb passanda were both very good The complimentary poppadums and coffee were nice touches. I will be back.
