Maharaja of India calificaciones y reseñas
This is just down the street from the National Gallery and found this on Open Table as we were looking for a late lunch spot around where we were. My husband had the Tandoor Special and I the chicken special. It was so good thing we were both very hungry as it was a generous amount of food. The food was fine ( we have a very good place where we live that would be hard to beat). We were unsure of how they classified their spiciness so we went safe and I ordered mild and my husband did medium- we both would up it a level higher. Great spot right across from one of the theaters and they offer a nice pre-theater meal.
If the food is the most important aspect of any restaurant experience then in his category we had no complaints - traditional Indian fare, prepared well enough. However, the remainder of the evening left a lot to be desired. The table we squeezed into next to the bathrooms reminded us of sitting in the Cabinet War Room - no windows, concrete walls, similar paint color. The poor English speaking ability of the entire staff made it difficult to communicate. We did a lot of pointing to the menu and guessing at what was being asked. The most irregular part of the entire evening was the failure of their credit card system which necessitated one of us leaving the table at the end of the meal to go to a nearby ATM for cash to pay the bill. Our server was apologetic about the issue and they provided a free starter to compensate us. Overall, Maharaja was a decent place for Indian cuisine if one expects no more.
We chose this place because we were here a few years ago and had a good meal. It was just as good this time. It's in a great location, just next door to the National Portrait Gallery. I would come back if I am in the neighbourhood and am hungry for spicy Indian food.
When we arrived I told the waiter we had a reservation, he clearly couldn't speak very good English as he sat us by the door which which was windy and tiny, telling us we cannot sit at the back of the restaurant without a reservation. We asked to move and he angrily said "I told you so!".
We ordered our food and got our drinks and papadums, the can's of coke we received were off and tasted awful. A few short minutes after receiving our papadoms our main meal was dropped on the table and the staff rushed off. Never experienced that before...
We both ordered chicken korma and the meat was awfully dry and tasteless. After several times of asking for a slice of lemon, several arrived, one was already used.
Overall terrible experience, awful attitude of the staff, rude and unkind. The food was unpleasant and overpriced. Would absolutely not recommend.
Good food, thats what a restaurant is about mainly and the MOI serves good food, although we received something different then ordered ..., the food was great.
The restaurant itself is not so good: it is for small people that do not mind everybody bumping into your table and chair. For seating its terrible, for eating its great.
Would only recommend the MOI to another person that only cares about the food.
The food itself wasn't too bad although meat felt dry. Unfortunately service was very poor. We had to ask for glasses and cutlery. Therewere 4 of us but for some reason waiter saw only 3 ppl at our table and we constatly had to ask for extra glass or spare plate. Found it very ignorant. My foot will never ever step into this place again!!!!!
Dined here on Sat 27 Jul with two friends and had a great meal. We are dedicated curry eaters and so know when we are in a good place and given the central location we were astonished that it seemed so quiet for a Sat evening. Also very good value for money given its location. Would definitely eat here again and would highly recommend to curry fans.
Really excellent Indian meal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Really smart restaurant in a good location - thanks to toptable as not sure we would have found this without them. Good value honest food - ideal for what we wanted. Will put on the list to return next time we go to London.
I needed to find a good post-theater restaurant and wanted to try authentic UK Indian food.
Maharaja of India met those needs and exceeded my expectations.
It is a short walk down the street from Leicester Square. Excellent selection of North Indian delights such as samosas, bindi (okra), aloo gobi and gulab jamon. Highly recommended for USA visitors as it is way better than most of our Indian restaurants.
We went here for a evening meal with visiting relatives - we are all food fanatics, Indian being one of our favourites. The food here was absolutely fantastic, the place doesnt look particularly exciting from the outside, but the food by far beats most of the Indian meals I've had in London. Dont miss it!
Service was terrible=We arrived early as we were going to the theater. There wasone other gentleman in the restaurant. While given a table right awy it tokk over 15 minutes for the waiter to return. We asked for menu recommendations and he steered us to the prefix menu. My wife and I chose different items so we could taste a number of items. The vegetable were so over cooked they were not identifiable, Both the chicket curry and lam curry were tasteless. I have experienced wonderful Indian food in London. This was not it. We skipped dessert and coffee.
I booked this for us as a early dinner before heading into London's comedy night. The location is briliiant in the heart of the entertainment district. The food was very tasty and pretty quickly served!
It's a little cosy place in midst the buzzing London.
Would definitely recommend for a good Indian taste.
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.
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.
