Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food was fresh and tasty and service was excellent too. We had quite a few starters and the samosas really stood out. The chicken on the mixed kebab starter was also beautifully tender. All our servers were attentive and polite but also had personality which...always adds to the eveningMore

Fabulous service and gorgeous food. The restaurant was full within 15 mins of us arriving at 7pm and you can understand why. Staff very welcoming, fast and efficient service. Food absolutely delicious. A great dining experience.

Food was of generally good quality. Karai Gosht was very good and the lamb chops were also great. Not so great was the Butter chicken which had a weird citrons tang : was ok but not what my son was expecting. Starters good bhaji good...as was the mixed kebab (if small) and the garlic mushrooms. With only two drinks purchased for a starters and mains for 4 £150.00. I felt expensive for what we had but I enjoyed the meal.More

Very busy restaurant and you can see why. The food was lovely, solid curry and vegetable rice. If I were to be critical I didn’t appreciate the lack of clarity on the poppadom and pickle tray. I was told by a member of staff that...pickle tray came with the poppadoms (which makes sense) to subsequently be charged £6.95 for the dips which is outrageously expensive. If you want a really solid curry in a busy environment then this is for you.More

From the moment you enter The Maharajah you are treated like the most important person there. The staff are all so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about all their dishes. When myself and 5 other guests visited it was a busy Saturday night, but the professionalism...and calmness of the staff was like a Tuesday night. If thats not enough reason to visit you wait until you try the food…. Out of this world! Hand on heart it is the best and most flavoursome Indian cuisine i have ever had! Thank you to all the staff for such a great dining experience.More

My son kindly went with me for dinner because he "doesn't really like Indian food" and I love it! We shared the samosas to start, the vegetarian ones because that's my diet. HOT and crispy deliciousness. Great start for both. My son had the chicken...tikka (mild) and I had the veggie sabzi jalfrezi (kick a**). We also had garlic naan and onion rice. I promise you we didn't leave any. Everything came sizzing hot and so very tasty. My son polished off his and then finished off mine sabzi jalfrezi, which was some brilliantly hot and tasty curry. He had to walk his Indian food belief back after dinner at the Maharaja! We have one more dinner together next week before I fly home and we thought we knew where we were going, but now my son wants to try the lamb samosas and the butter chicken. My meal was so good I plan to repeat it. I'm jealous my son lives nearby. One caveat: the service was attentive, but it took quite a while for the food to come out. The restaurant was busy, and clearly it deserves that because it's excellent and they don't shortchange the quality. It was worth the wait.More

An absolutely beautiful authentic indian using super fresh ingredients. The service was off the charts - super friendly. Defo one if not the best indian in Cambridge.

It was one of the nicest curries I've had for some time. The chicken tikka pathia had a really lovely depth of flavour and a good level of spice. The starters were absolutely delicious. And the service was fantastic. These guys clearly have a passion...for their food and it shows. Even if I was being really picky, I couldn't think of a bad thing to say about them. I look forward to my next visit.More

First of all the food and service were very good indeed BUT when we first were shown to our table the first thing we were asked was 'Would you like some pappadoms?' As a serial indian restaurant goer this is always the first great entre...to indian food in the uk and a prelim for what's to come. At this stage I hadn't looked at the menu and it was only when reviewing the bill at the end I realised they charged £1.50 per pappadom and the dips were also charged for making the pre-starter nearly as expensive as the starters. We never go mad with our mains and usually choose a curry each, share a rice, share a plain naan and then maybe a side. Add to this three drinks between us and the bill came to over £100, then service was added at 10%. I know costs have risen but I did feel that at nearly £55 per head we are in the range of a slightly special night out not just a normal curry night that is so now part of our british culture. Don't price your self too high is my message and next time look at the menu first is the message to me and future customers. I repeat though that the food though was good and it very well worth a visit!More
