I liked going to the lunch/afternoon buffet. The tandoori chicken was always tasty. The salad/entree bar had a good selection. Several people I know would hesitate to try Indian food - too bad! Interesting tastes! Loved the vegetable dishes. The carrot and the spinach dishes were always enjoyable.

Guys , I am a true authentic Indian guy working couple of years here on a visa. My take on the restaurant is if you are hungry while returning from Santa Barbara visit or coming from Sfo to LA via 101 and you are so hungry that you can swallow grass and pebbles with some sea water and taste matters...

I too was delighted by the change in the lunch buffet when I went to Maharaja with my nephew a few weeks ago. I had not been back in years because of the lackluster fare I sampled my first time. But this time I was very pleased -- the chutneys were excellent, as were the braised lamb shanks and many... More

I hadn't been here in a few months and was surprised to see an "Under New Management" Banner outside. The place had always had good food and attentive service. The family (that recently purchased the place) definitley stepped it up a notch. Everything we ordered was well prepared, perfectly spiced and high quality. The Lasuni Chicken was amazing! Prices were... More

If you are in town, or crusing on US 101 and have a craving for Indian food, do stop by this place. It is a very nice place with tasty lunch buffet. It is not at all expensive. The host is a warm gentleman and service is good. Try their Tandoori Roti if you are bored of usual Garlic Naan.... More

If you're craving Indian food, this is the place to go. I've eaten here numerous times, and have enjoyed every curry I've ordered. I wonder why this restaurant isn't more crowded-the food is consistently good, the service is attentive, and the prices are reasonable. It suffers from its location east of Seaward on Main Street with no downtown ambiance.
