This Indian Buffet has been around for many years but over the last few years it's gone downhill. Still very good value but service and cleanliness is an issue. All the staples are good Butter Chicken , Tandori , Beef Vindalo . Don't have high expectations and you will be pleased

Our family ate lunch at Maharaja restaurant…ABSOLUTELY the WORST tasting Indian food. What a WASTE of money. While paying, when we told waiter, he smirked and retorted rudely: “everyone has an opinion”—no regret whatsoever. The curries were cold, tasteless, only Matar Paneer was any good. So were Papad & Onion rings. Nans were cold, palak paneer had uncooked palak, even the normal MOST basic potato curry was tasteless. Small Ras Malai balls tasted yucky !!! Pakoras had NO taste. Even first timer would make better tasting food. They ought to send their cooks to India for training. Montreal’eans---go to other Indian restaurants and taste what food should taste.

The credit card machine stopped in between so I asked him why this happened. He looked at it and said-- “No Tip !!!” and I was thinking ‘this guy has guts…he still expects a tip. And for what ?? This is buffett lunch. Tip is given for providing service and is not a right !!!

Maybe their downtown location is keeping them going. They should shut down and stop fleecing innocent public.

My husband chose this restaurant for his birthday dinner and we will not be going back. The restaurant is very dirty, table clothes are stained and old, spider webs near the windows. We only decided to stay as my husband was craving Indian food. The food was okay. The best part was when we were surprised by a fresh Naan bread on our table when we came back from a visit to the buffet. Years ago, this restaurant was good, not anymore.

Lots of variety (for a vegetarian or meat eater), very fresh, good quality. We come here every time we visit Montreal. Highly recommended.
