Everything was delicious (spicy lamb dish - can't remember the name, but it was the first on the lamb list - and the best Shrimp Saag I've ever had!) Fun and yummy cocktails that complimented the indian food. Nice quiet atmosphere with big windows overlooking Harvard Square.
Had been here many times over decades, but not in the last 7-10 years... and omg, it's still the same (the current guy's mom used to own/run it,) but with a more awesome view over Harvard Square! We had a lovely, friendly dinner pre-theater. Really not your standard Indian place. The seasoning seems much more subtle and delicious, and also less spicy. (We asked for "medium," which turned out super-tasty but mild, so don't be shy.) Thanks for a great dinner -- this will be our go-to place in Harvard Square!
Birthday dinner with friends - our waiter was friendly and the food was excellent!
One of my favorite Indian places. Tried the malai kofta and was delicious. Highly recommend
Nice table for 6. Good food
Nice location and seating with a view. Awesome Chat. Filling satisfying serving portions generous.
Great food!! We enjoyed the atmosphere as well.
The Maharaja is a really good Indian restaurant. Every dish we ordered was tasty and well prepared. We ordered Tandori Chicken and an eggplant dish, as well as a salmon curry. All the dishes were great. The standard Margarita I had were excellent.
Our bill for two people came to $95 w/o tip. For the quality of the food, I think it was reasonable.
The location in Harvard Square is very convenient. The small mall it is in is under renovation, but this doesn't really impact the restaurant.
I would gladly return to this place.
Nice Harvard Square restaurant overlooking the street and small park. The food is always fresh and is delivered hot. The service is very good and the prices reasonable. I have dined here before and will continue to do so.
Great Indian food in a lovely location overlooking the Square although I do miss the ornate carved wood tables and sizzling platters that disappeared in the fire several years ago. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the food reliable. With the bill half the price of many of the Harvard Square restaurants, it is a treasure!
The service was very good. However the food was only okay. We love Indian food and we were a bit disappointed with the quality.
Tried this for the first time. Wonderful dinner and a wonderful and efficient staff. Food was sophisticated and delicious. Great street view from the second floor.
We had a lovely meal - ordered many dishes, and they were all wonderful. The eggplant masala in particular was our favorite!
Excellent Indian food in a very nice setting in Harvard Square.
There is a reason why The Maharaja is widely believed to be the best Indian restaurant in the Boston area. Besides its great location, it serves traditional Indian dishes the way that they are meant to be-- not diluted to serve local tastes. Authentic goat biriyani, excellent kebabs, and of course lots of vegetarian options.
We sat by the window and could watch Harvard kids hanging around in the park below. A great way to spend an evening in Cambridge.
Food was above average but dishes were unimaginative and portions were on the small side, especially for the price ($14-22). Waiters were aggressive about taking our order, which some people would really appreciate. Loved my cocktail though. My search for a great Indian restaurant in the Harvard Square area continues.
Every dish we had was delicious! Drinks were tasty as well. Please order the garlic naan with your meal, it's a must!
Maharaja is one of my favorite fancy places to go to for Indian food. The food is authentic and the ambiance is lovely. I highly recommend.
Service was outstanding. We had reservations, but still had to wait a couple of minutes. The owner was extremely apologetic and made sure to personally make sure our experience was fantastic. Highly recommend the food and service.
We visited this place on Sunday evening , we had booked the our table for 7 ppl . There were two people missing because finding a parking isn’t easy so they were looking for that . They did not seat us for 15 mins even though the place was empty . We had two old people with us who found it difficult to stand and wait but the staff was very cold and inconsiderate.
Now the food , I’ve eaten Indian food at a lot of places in Boston and nyc this was by far the worst food I had . The kabab were chewy and served cold . The chapati was hard as papad. Over all I would give this place negative reviews because of the inconsiderate staff and bad food .
Amazing and tasty food
The personnel were pleasant and accommodating, and the food was delicious.
The atmosphere is lovely. The noise level low enough for a private conversation (yes, some hearing loss here). The food was delicious and the staff attentive but not overly.
Delicious assortment of regional dishes. Our favorites are lamb Rogan josh and navrattan korma
Excellent overall and very friendly service! Wonderful food, great selections and great atmosphere! Will return!
Maharaja is great at accommodating big groups. Service was quick and responsive and the food was delicious. Prices are a little on the higher side, but definitely worth it. I'll be back.
Really great food, amazing location, and great service. In fact, probably the best Indian restaurant I’ve been to in the last 15 years.
Server tried to increase our bill repeatedly with bottled water, additional naan. Food was ok but nothing special at all. Disappointed.
The waitress was terrible. She had no knowledge of the drinks served or the food and was extremely unpleasant.
Absolutely delicious meal! Easy for a big family meal.
UNDOUBTEDLY THE BEST INDIAN FOOD IN THE GREATER BOSTON AREA
Excellent Indian food. We had the buffet... great value, lots of choices, nice and fresh. Attentive service. I like people watching from the second floor. Quiet enough for good conversation with a friend. Really good experience. I look forward to going back.
Service was very slow. When our dinner came several dishes were cold. Do not recommend.
Beautiful Indian restaurant with panoramic views of Cambridge. The food was delicious and included some unexpected variations from usual Indian menus. The service was fantastic. They were kid-friendly. And the views were fantastic.
Great. Good food. Nice view of Harvard Square
Food was good.Liked the ambience.Service was slow in responding or there was confusion amongst the servers on who will take the orders etc.But the food from the kitchen came fast.
The food was delicious. We shared the tandoori chicken wings, salmon maharaja, fish curry and peschmeri nan. Service was good, and the atmosphere was lovely. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The food here is always outstanding. Highly recommend the saag paneer!
From the moment you walk in the door your taste buds go wild with the delicious smell of Indian cuisine. You're greeted by your waiter who comes bearing a crisp and 3 sauces to tide you over while waiting for your main dishes. The tikka masala was great, mild was by no means spicy at all (so go for the hot if you want a little spice). Garlic naan was great as usual and the gulab jamun was a great end to the meal. It wasn't the best Indian food I'd ever had but it was good and I will return. Service was great.
Wonderful meal, the food and ingredients were fresh and delicious. Crowded but prompt and friendly service.
