Shabby from the front but once inside the food is authentic,tasty and plentiful. Very reasonably priced-great service and terrific views from the conservatory

Managed to park outside the front door and was shown to our table in the conservatory with spectacular views out all windows . We received good prompt service and the meals we had ticked all the boxes for quality and quantity . I had a chicken tikka madras the meat pieces were smaller than I expected but there was plenty of it and was spiced just right for my palate . The overall bill was a little more than the retuarants we use at home but with that view and quality would visit again next time we are in Newquay.

Grabbed a takeaway here last night. The food was rich and flavourful. We had lamb rogan, saag paneer and brinjal bhaji. The garlic naan was fluffy and the chutneys were yummy.

Exceptional service and quality. We regularly eat Indian meals in some of the best places in Leicester and this was equal to any of them.
Vusant, the owner, deserve a special mention. Absolutely first class, very helpful but also very amusing. He made the whole evening a special experience. Jamie Oliver needs to send his staff to Maharajah for lessons!
If you enjoy Indian food this is worth travelling a long way to enjoy.
It's also very good value.

This was the only curry house in newquay so we gave it a go being a curry lover I was eager to taste the best authentic curry in newquay, boy was I disappointed! All 5 dishes ordered by my family looked and tasted the same, even the vegetarian dish?! Looked like they had opened a tin of tomatoes and warmed them up! Hugely disappointed. When we got up to leave the owner asked us if everything was on, when we told him our issues his reply was "if you wanted something special you should've asked". Great reply! Would not recommend, rude staff, long wait.
