Description: The Maharajah restaurant which was established in 1980 is open from 5.30 pm until late, seven days a week. The restaurant is the only real Indian restaurant in Newquay (and possibly Cornwall) here you will find traditional Indian food served in a restaurant with the most outstanding sea views.

Had a surprise visit from family who live 300 miles away on the occasion of my birthday and was taken for Dinner out at one of Newquay's Favourite Restaurants. We hadn't booked but they found us a nice table with a view of the bay and we were really welcomed. We were quite lucky really as the place soon filled up and was pretty full within 30 minutes of us arriving about 6pm. There is an extensive menu with good explanations of the foods on offer and how hot they are etc. A nice glass of wine helped wash this all down and there was plenty of food served.
An Indian meal is always good for being able to share each others meals and get several tastes for the price of one set.
Definitely recommend this friendly restaurant and they even acknowledged my birthday with a sparkler and glass of something creamy which tasted lovely.

We come to newquay every year from the Midlands and make sure every time we book to come to the Maharajah, favourite Indian restaurant, it’s worth the four hour trip just for the spicy chicken wings! Thankyou!

Over the Easter holidays we ordered a takeaway and collected from restaurant as they were going to charge us £5 for delivery for only being 5 miles away.
Service was fine, but the meal wasn't so good. Like most meals it's down to personal taste, the standard of produce was fine, it was the taste of the sauces that weren't great. The flavour was strange and for a medium spicy curry it tasted too sweet! Not sure I would order another takeaway again, would be more inclined to choose a different restaurant.

We are very sorry to hear that the food wasn't to your liking, we appreciate that you have given our food a try and I hope we can temp you back again in the future!.

We have a very wide selection of Authentic Indian cuisines on our menu, I'm sure we can find something to your liking, we know you can't always please everyone but we try!

Like most restaurants and takeaways we have to charge for that distance, that is a 10 mile round trip, we do review our pricing structure regularly and as it stands we feel that £5 is a fair price for that distance and cheaper than a Taxi!

Thank you for your feedback.
