Nice place to meet, greet and eat together in Cambridge. The staff were courteous. Was happy with the vegetarian options available. Nothing very special about the food, though fresh and tasty. Recommended.

The atmosphere was amazing being on the second floor with a view of Harvard Square. The staff were super friendly and the food arrive quickly. I had samosa chaat and it was the best version I've ever had. I also had the chicken Tikka masala, which was also delicious. There are a bunch of vegetarian options too which are delicious!

Despite working in Cambridge for many years, I'd never been here and was very pleasantly surprised. A large space on the second floor of a rather weird urban mall, which has seen many establishments come and go over the years, Maharajah was a warm and welcoming oasis on a very cold night. The service was gracious, the food well-seasoned and quite delicious. I really enjoyed this place!

We were four people and decided to try Indian food during our visit to Cambridge near Boston, for Dinner. It was Friday evening and the Restaurant was fairly crowded. As starters we ordered Hara Bhara Kabab (veg) which was very good and Achari Paneer Tikka(veg) , which was horrible. Tikka is supposed be a marinated tandoori dish but there was hardly any hint of Tandoor and very slight marination the capsicum was nearly raw. On complaint , the server just took away our Tikka and brought back the same portion after warming it. We just decided to leave it as it is.The Amritsari Fish and Nargis Kofta were good but the Lamb Rogan Josh was a disgrace. The curry tasted like a diluted tomato sauce/ketchup mix and there was no hint of Almonds which is an essential ingredient of curry in most of the 'Rogan Josh' dishes. The Rotis were good and the Peshawari Naan was excellent. They charge extra $1 for ice with the hard drinks. Overall it was up and down experience.
