Being an ex Durban couple we have always loved curry but forgot how good the Durban tasting curry was, well no more. Maharajah definitely cooks their curry the Durban style and we will be visiting many times to work through the menu.

Having enjoyed Indian food all over the world, we’re pretty spoiled but ok in all, pretty good here. The butter chicken was the highlight. They did a nice take with the chilli bits.

Over the years this restaurant has stayed a firm favourite. The decor is great and with the picture windows looking onto Kloofnek Road this is a very popular and vibey restuarant, with excellent service and greta food and a good selection of South African wines
