We first went to this restaurant back in 2004 and every time we go back it's consistently amazing. The staff are very attentive and helpful but the food is fantastic. I have the Prawn Puri started and the Puri is light and crisp, the sauce is incredible and I sometimes order 4 at a time as a main meal. I... More

We are always made welcome at this restaurant which we have always found to be the best Indian experience in town. Excellent cuisine well presented with an authentic taste, especially the tandoori dishes and probably the best pappadoms in the world!

Really enjoyed our meal this evening. Managed to get a table as it was very busy. Lovely atmosphere and our service from Jamil was fantastic. Not always likely to come across someone who wants to provide the best service they can and he was excellent. Food and service was great.

Its a restaurant serving curries. Got to be honest, its not special. If fact, I'd only describe it as a tourist restaurant. The sauce was thin with little content. It was bland and the nan bread was thin, crisp and not worth eating. A very low to average experience.

The curry was quite nice, the service was okay. We thought it a bit pricey for what it was. We live in Surrey and our Indian restaurants offer better food for less money

Went to Maha based on TA reviews and wasn't disappointed - my father has a decent prawn massala and my lamb biryani was lovely. Unpretentious place, good food and attentive staff, would definitely recommend.
