Food was just ok. Not the best Indian food, everyone’s meal was rather mild in spice despite ordering medium to high spices. Rather bland.
Wasn't impressed by neither the quality or the flavor of the food. don't waste your time.
Consistently excellent food at reasonable prices. Not real fancy, but always pleasant, and we have always had no trouble carrying on a lively conversation. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for excellent Indian food in pleasant (though not elegant) surroundings.
Great food and excellent friendly service. Will definitely go back.
We were here prior to a Mike Stern show at the Charles Hotel. Reservation was for 6:30 prior to the 7:30 show, and it worked perfectly. This restaurant sits above Staples, and it's tough to find as there are no clear outside signs ... you enter from JFK, and then must go upstairs to find it. Once there, you'll be glad you came! Our table was right by a window overlooking JFK, and it was really quite romantic. The service was fabulous, and the food was just excellent! Highly recommend this restaurant.
I specifically wrote in my reservation notes that I would like for there to be a surprise dessert with a candle for my friend's birthday. I don't know if this restaurant just doesn't offer dessert, but there was no acknowledgement of the request from the server or hostess and it never happened.
I've enjoyed meals at this restaurant in the past either business lunches or dinner with family or friends. The Sunday buffet was wonderful. So many delicious choices from appetizers to desserts.
Chaat station, soup, pakoras, samosas, kebabs, chicken tikka, so many vegetarian dishes to choose from...and more. Very reasonably priced too.
It's a beautiful restaurant surrounded by glass windows on the second floor. The views are wonderful of Winthrop Park and the Harvard Square buzz.
Our waitress was attentive and kept an eye on refilling our water glasses. We arrived around 12:30 pm and by 1:30 it was full. We'll definitely be back for this wonderful buffet.
The food here is amazing especially chicken korma is the best. Service is very good, we went there with a 1 year old baby, unfortunately she made a mess while eating yummy rice, they were just ok with it they kept telling us don't worry we will handle this. Highly recommend to the people with children 😆 there is not much place like this.
Food was superb!
The Galouti and Kakori kebabs were excellent
The food was delicious, and the views over Harvard Square were lovely! I especially recommend the Goan Fish Curry - that was everyone's favorite dish.
Delicious as always. We love the lamb rogan josh and butter chicken. The wheat paratha is delightful.
The menu offers excellent regional dishes and variety.
The restaurant is clean with a nice decor and has views of the harvard square area.
Good food with a nice variety. Courteous services and great views. Nice vegetarian dishes.
A must visit place for foodies and authentic food lovers..great ambiance..friendly staff..excellent service..reasonable price and a wide variety of food options..the best Indian food I have tasted in US yet.
Based on the reviews and a previous visit, we had high hopes for an amazing meal at Maharaja. This was one Indian restaurant where I adventured into seafood (based on lots of good experience at Bombay Club, which used to be in the same location) ... but the shrimp in our appetizer was overcooked and rubbery. The Saag Paneer and Onion Kulcha were good, but the stuffed chicken dish - a bit of an unusual one - wasn't so great. Overall I won't rush back, and if I do I'd stay with mainstream dishes and not go too far off track!
The food, service and atmosphere is extraordinary. All the dishes are seasoned delicately and are delicious. This is outstanding Indian cuisine.
With so many excellent choices for Asian cuisine in the Harvard Sq area, the tired, old gem of the Maharajah has lost its shine. While the views of the hustle and bustle of the Square through the second level, floor to ceiling plate glass windows are always fascinating, for the most part, the Resto has, slowly but surely, faded in quality. Other than the keema nan (ground lamb-stuffed flatbread), the food was mediocre at best. From the thick, lukewarm mango lassi, to the aloo gobie (spiced potato & califlower dish), to the strangely-flavored daal maharani, the meal was expensive and definitely not something to write home about! Service was nice enough -- they kept our water glasses full -- but not particularly inspiring.
The cashew cauliflower was the best prepared Indian dish I have ever had, and I live in New York. The table by the window was picturesque and the wait stuff was polite and prompt.
Simply outstanding, best Indian cuisine I have had. My family had a wonderful time.
The food was all right, but I was greatly disappointed by the service. If you're hoping to leave satisfied, then don't make any special requests because, apparently, either the wait staff or kitchen staff won't honor them.
Food was excellent. Enjoyed the choice of spice level!
