Decided on trying after not being able to secure our first choice restaurant. We weren't able to book but we're encouraged to turn up anyway which we did. Waited for a few minutes whilst a table was found even though others arriving after us, who hadn't booked either, went straight through, so a little inconsistency in the approach here. Atmosphere...

When you walk in the door of the Maharajah it's obviously a classy joint. The staff are super friendly and even though we were just after a takeaway they were really helpful. The lounge at the front is just asking you to have a cheeky pint while you wait for the food. And the food? Top notch. Fresh, tasty and... More

Have used this restaurant many times over the years as a take away delivery but this was the first time eating in! We had to book a table as it was very busy. The service was very good and welcoming, with the host cracking jokes and keeping his eye on everything. The food was good and plentiful, a very enjoyable... More

The Maharajah restaurant which was established in 1980 is open from 5.30 pm until late, seven days a week. The restaurant is the only real Indian restaurant in Newquay (and possibly Cornwall) here you will find traditional Indian food served in a restaurant with the most outstanding sea views.
