“Wonderful Food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Food was absolutely marvellous and reasonably priced. The cutlery and glassware is really unusual. Waiters extremely attentive. Food looks good when it comes out and tastes wonderful.

“Superb restaurant!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

I have eaten at the Maharaja a few times and have to say that it is one of my favourite places to dine out. The menu choices are fantastic, quite trendy but also some of the old favourites, so you can be adventurous and try something completely different or stick to the more mainstream Indian food choices. On my last visit I took my mother for a birthday treat. We ordered a mix of dishes, trying out a couple of the more unusual choices, as well as a lamb bhuna and sag aloo. Everything was cooked to perfection. The king prawn dish we tried was extremely delicious (although I cannot remember the name of it) and the lamb dishes were tender and flavoursome. Our waiter, Shaz, was very friendly and even brought us a couple of starters "on the house" to go with our poppadums and relishes. The décor and ambience is also excellent. There are very few decent places in Herne Bay that you can dine out for special occasions but the Maharaja is definitely one of the best we have.

“Great food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Thanks to the Chef and all the staff for another great night on Saturday. The food was excellent and the staff as always really friendly and welcoming.
If you like Indian food, you can’t go wrong with this restaurant, it has a wide choice of dishes on the menu and all cooked fresh and served piping hot.
See you again soon

“Great food, just a bit noisy!”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Went as a group of 6 on a Saturday night which may have not been such a good idea for our first visit as it was very busy and with low ceilings and no soft furnishings was very noisy.
The food was extremely good and the service was ok, considering it was so busy and it took three attempts to get water for the table.
We'll be going back, but maybe not on a Saturday night!

“Friendly staff with great food”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

Had a really nice meal, staff couldn't do enough, table was perfect, a really nice unhurried evening. Food was hot, prompt service, nice wine overall cannot fault the place, it was our second visit and both times have been great.
