    We were kept waiting due to a software glitch at the check-in despite many empty tables and staff hanging about. There were gaps in the service. Everything else was very nice but for the price the wait staff should be uniformly excellent.

    The food and service was amazing The paneer pakora and galouti kebab were great. Loved the methi malai chicken- was excellent-hands down the best I have ever had!!!! but the noise level was too high. Couldn’t enjoy a peaceful dinner with my husband because of the noise- a couple beside us was talking too loudly. And then 5 people sat beside us and kept laughing and talking loudly.Lo

    Our family had a wonderful experience at the Maharaja. The service was at attentive; the food was as good as it gets, in terms of Indian food. We were provided with a quiet table with a view of the street below, it couldn’t have been better. Will definitely return!
