Our experience at Le Maharajah was fantastic. This place deserves a review that too a good one almost after a year of our visit to Paris as I can still recall the tasty Indian food I had there.

We travel to India and typically have problems getting really spicy food in Indian restaurants in other parts of the world. People seem to think that you can only like spicy food if you are Indian, so they moderate the spice level. We explained (as...More

surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French

Le Maharajah restaurant in the heart of Paris’ Left Bank proudly claims its place as the first Indian restaurant in the capital, and it’s still delighting clients from all over town. The atmosphere is magical, exotic. With spotlit alcoves for Indian portraits, hand-carved chairs, pink table linens, and everywhere the heightened décor, colours and aromas of the subcontinent, Le Maharajah brings India to France. The menu focuses on North Indian cuisine: the specialty of the house is lamb curry with aubergines which you should have with the cheese naans. Well-chosen wines and careful service make this a local favourite.
