excellent find in milwaukee
Great indian food and great service. We had a group of 9 people and the waiters were very attentive. Food tasted great as well. Many of the first time indian food eaters in our group loved it and are now hooked.

Solid taste but decor needs help
I found food to be tasty and spiced appropriately. It was not bland as many Indian restaurants try to make to cater to Western taste. They also make it spicy when you ask for spicy. The ambience needs an uplift for the prices charged. Service was generally fine but I was dining during weekday.

Fabulous Friday Feast
I dined with three hungry men who were in the mood for Indian food. Maharaja did not dissappoint! We ordered assorted appetizers, beers, masla tea and soda, followed by the main dishes. Our favorites were the chicken curry and shrimp masala.

Best Indian Food on the East Side
A great simple Indian find on the east side. Hard to find parking, but not impossible. If you are determined or local to the area you probably know where to find parking. Between a large guest party in back along with summer-fest going on (not the fault of restaurant) it made is especially difficult to find parking.
It was appreciated that they offer the ability to pick different levels of spices for customers. Not everyone can take full strength curry! Great tasting food and reasonable prices. Very friendly staff and kept a prompt and courteous manor of serving us. I would go there again without thinking about it twice for quality Indian food. Wide selection of different dish types.

Perfect for a family dinner (or lunch); there were seven of us. We love Indian foods, and Maharaja probably offers the best this side of Chicago. Waitstaff is gaining experience but was attentive and paced the meal just right. We ordered from the menu and of course shared dishes. All five were very good to excellent. - jg.

The food was very good but the lamb was a bit too fatty. The spices were increcible!

We had an early reservation so we were taken care of promptly. We had a lot of questions about the food and our servers were very knowledgeable and gracious. The food was excellent. The Mango Mojitos were refreshing. We even tried some Indian beer after dinner. Not too keen on those, but had a large selection of wine and alcohol to meet anyone's needs. Will definitely stop again for their happy hours!!

Good food at reasonable prices...
Just take not that your definition of spiciness might not match Maharaja's! I ordered my dish medium spicy, but I would have judged it to be hot.

Great intro to Indian food!!
This was our first time at Maharaja, and first time my two friends had had Indian food. I'm so glad they're first experience was so positive! The food was flavorful and the spice was just right, especially for palates that were new to Indian -- we requested mild spices, and the chefs did it just right! We ordered the Fish Pakora appetizer, then the shrimp skillet from the tandoor, the vegetable jalfrezi paneer, and the chicken mango special. Slight delay from time we sat down and got menus to time the waiter came over to introduce himself, answer questions and take our order, but he was very attentive once we ordered the food. And the red sangria was awesome! I would recommend this to anyone looking for good authentic Indian cuisine.

1st time dining SURPRISE
Service was great! Staff was very helpful explaining what was being brought to the table each time. Extensive menu. Great wine list. Steady flow of customers entering but it was not PACKED. There was never a point where it was too loud, but people were still enjoying themselves.

I love eating at Maharaja. The dinner menu has many choices. including vegetarian dishes and many types of naan. The serving sizes are appropriate, though I usually bring leftovers home because it is just as good reheated. Chicken Tikka Masala is my favorite dish. The dining area is low-lit making it feel more intimate even if all the tables are full. Service was well-timed and friendly.
