Food and service were both superb. Maharajah went out of their way to make my wife's birthday special. Also, my very finicky son ordered on his own and loved the Murgh Tikka, while my other child went into a lassi-induced fugue state.

Took my wife there for her birthday dinner. While making reservations I requested a dessert for her birthday and without for the prompting they provided a small dessert with a lit candle. Had two with us who had never had Indian food they were very pleased with the assistance of the wait staff and we had delicious meals. Waitress was excellent ambiance was excellent as well.

Dinner a colleague, had the lamb saag, spicy is spicy. Great flavor and heat. The meat was tender but I prefer my spinach a little creamier than this version. Would definitely go again.

We enjoyed the buffet on a Sunday afternoon, with a nice variety of vegan, vegetarian and meat options. Their mango lasse is to die for! And the staff is excellent, attentive and welcoming.

Maharaja is one of the best restaurants in the greater Milwaukee area for delicious Indian cuisine. We ordered Samosas, Masala Dosa, Seekh Kabab, Lamb Saag, Aloo Paratha, and Aloo Nan. Everything was delicious. I especially like how Maharaja makes their Aloo Paratha, and their Seekh Kabab dish is very generous. Portion sizes are moderate on other dishes we've tried. We were served by two waitresses because one was in training, and they both did very well with attending to us. One note of concern - the amount of the chutney servings that go with the appetizers is very small, and if you ask for a refill, the charge is $5.00. We succeeded this time in not requesting additional chutneys and thus avoided the extra charge.

Total disappointment. From the staff not knowing the menu to the very boring overpriced meal which supposedly was their best seller. Oh yeah, the toilet in woman’s bathroom was missing the flusher handle. Nice!!! Will never be back.

Food is delicious. This restaurant will charge you for any extra chutney and probably rice. Quantities served are somewhat small compared to the price in the greater Milwaukee area. I especially like the seekh kebab (tandoori ground lamb), and the aloo paratha (potato flatbread). All the dishes we have tried have been delicious.

It was not busy but it was early in the evening. Tables began to fill as the evening progressed. Our server was very attentive. The food arrived in a timely manner and was hot ( temperature ). We are all rather timid when it comes to spicy food. My husband and I chose a 1 (out of a 1-4 range) Our son chose a spice level of 2. All our choices were delicious. Next time we will be bolder as the food was not to spicy for us.
