Having experienced this restaurant previously my partner and I decided never to use again. We heard they now had a new chef so thought we would try the food as this is the only Indian restaurant in Troon. We got a takeaway. Pakora was small pieces with green beans sticking out of them, not nice! The lamb bhoona was lacking... More

I grew up in Troon and have eaten here many many times over the years. I do like it but having travelled and lived all over the world eating so many different Indian dishes I have to say that on this occasion (my first for nearly ten years) The Maharani food was way too sweet, sickly sweet. Maybe it was... More

Have visited the resturant on many occasions and feel that it's in a 1980-90 time warp. The main dishes are well behind the mark of keeping modern / or traditional. Fish in a indian resturant these days should come from Indian not farmed salmon or King Prawns. Service is good. The price seemed a little high compared with previous and... More

Came here on a Sunday evening, didn't book, but they could still accommodate us. Here as a group of four. Restaurant was quite busy. Good choice of food for vegetarians and vegans, can't really complain. Young serving staff obviously very nervous and did make a few mistakes and needed to confirm order several times, but I'm sure once they settled... More

Thank heavens its good because it is the only Indian place to eat in town !. The menue is wide and varied and the prices are very good. There is also a takeaway service. Additionally the service is very good friendly and attentive without being obtrusive.

Kicked off the night with a few alcoholic beverages, quick and efficient service straight off the bat. After the first few drinks I placed an order for the Medu vada, once again in a very pleasing time period. The fluffy savoury doughnuts were absolutely delicious. I was kindly advised to try the Lamb Saag, and boy oh boy was it... More

As I ventured through the cold blustery streets of Troon I noticed this authentic beuty of an Indian. From the moment I entered the sweet smell from the kitchen hit my nostril's and remained there through out. Table and chairs immaculate and the ambiance from the lights was perfect. Thoroughly enjoyed the meals with the beautiful waitress remaining attentive throughout... More

Saturday night will be busy so ordered take away and accepted a 45 minute wait. In the event I waited at least 20 mins for my take away in the shop. I wasn't happy and neither was the queue I was in. Staff - totally disorganised. Don't think they knew what was going on. The food didn't redeem the experience.... More

It's the only Indian in Troon but we decided to give it a try. We didn't have starters but they gave us some popadoms with some dips as tasters. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We both had Lamb Rogan Josh which was lovely but not quite as good as what we are used to at our own local... More
