I visited this restaunarnt in its old location before the earthquake. The new location is in a converted villa - newly refurbished, all clean and tidy, every fixture and fitting brand new, a very relaxing and up-market situation. I particularly noted the quality glassware and the immiculately clean toilets. Service was friendly and attentive, food quality good. The Maharaja Platter was well presented and excellent. I had the prawn Malabari med/hot which was also great. Unlike much NZ Indian food the sauces were made with fresh ingredients and were well constructed. Average pricing and an extensive, well-priced beer and wine list made for good value overall. This is the best Indian I have found in Christchurch since the earthquakes, and I've tried more than a few! Would definitely recommend.

Lamb and tandoori chicken were exceptional. Can not complement service enough. 2 p.m. Closing time, manager went out of way to satisfy my special need. My best Indian food in New Zealand as per my judgement

Wow! After their original building was demolished after the Feb 2011 quake Maharaja Indian Restaurant have opened a new restaurant in a restored classic villa. What a superb setting for what in my opinion is the best Indian in ChCh. They also have great beers, an absolute must on any curry night
