This was an anniversary treat and proved to be a hit.
The menu was extensive with plenty of variety and choice for me, who doesn't eat India very often.
The service was good.

I will certainly return.

Our first visit to this restaurant to celebrate with Steve.We all enjoyed everything we chose and there was plenty.Although it was a really hot day we kept cool and we're offered another table to make sure we were comfortable. We will certainly return.

Whenever we visit my family in Herne Bay, we love a get together curry. We always go to Shad. Although we always have to wait for at least an hour before any food shows up, the very friendly staff have always been very attentive and apologetic. This time, we thought we would try somewhere different as we had a child with us, so an hours wait would take him way past his dinner time. We booked a table for 6 people at the Maharaja. They seemed a little surprised when we turned up but showed us to a table and left us. I really mean, left us. We waited long enough and then called them to ask if we could order drinks and poppadoms. The waiter then went to get someone else to take our order. Then the wait went on. Again we called. Again the process was repeated. We ordered our food and sat back enjoying family time. There were so many staff, but they were all busy, not serving, and every time one turned up, he had to go and get someone else. We ordered 2 tandoori platters to share, and were assured that would be plenty. Plenty for 2, not 6. However, we thought we had ordered plenty of main courses. We waited 2 hours !!!! We kept asking how much longer. They kept saying, we are really busy. Probably 5 more minutes. Those "5mins" actually took another 20. What we did notice was the amount of take aways far exceeded the table service. The food arrived at 9.30, way too late to eat, when we booked for 7.30. Sadly, it didn't even end well, as some of the food was lukewarm. My nephews korma had formed a skin across the top. He didn't mind too much as he was too tired to eat. I think next time we visit, curry will be off our menu
