I am an avid patron of The Maharaja. I used to have client meetings at The Maharaja before covid. Even opting to take staff there as a thank you for all their hard word. This averaged to about once every two months. Today, I decided...to order from The Maharaja for Valentine’s Day after receiving an email from the restaurant. My son went to pick up the food. I received a call saying that the staff forgot to give half the order to him. He had already left and was well on his way back on the highway and he had to turn back. During this call there wasn’t even an apology. The food, when it arrived, was of course cold. One of the dishes we ordered had lamb in it, It was chewy and the bhindi has a layer of oil in it. The butter chicken wasn’t tasty either with the chicken being over cooked. I do realize that Valentine’s Day was a busy day. But since the restaurant was ok with taking an order two weeks in advance, there should have been a point where they said this is the max we can take on for that day or brought in extra staff to help out. Also there wasn’t any excuse for chewy meat or layers of oil This isn’t the level of quality that we have come to expect from the maharaja. We are quite disappointed in the restaurant for the first time ever.More

Wow, what an experience! In this historic building there are separate dining rooms paying homage to different themes complete with artworks (Mona Lisa in a Sari!) chandeliers, colour themes and a beautiful bar. A tour is given after you place your order and the guide...enthusiastically describes these areas. We were started with a complimentary flavourful green drinks in small shot glasses. It was fragrant and refreshing. The menu is divided by cuisine and Tracey was amazing at explaining the dishes and the stories behind them. Anarkali Shorba is a delicious smooth lentil soup with a pomegranate blossom garnish that is a tribute to Anarkali and Prince Salim’s romance. Something about a ruby necklace he gave to her. We thoroughly enjoyed Haryali Murgh Ke Parche. This appetizer is a tender chicken breast marinated overnight with exotic spices, fresh mint and cooked in a tandoor. Yum! The main dish of Dum Ke Murgh Asaf Jah was an explosion of flavour. This chicken dish was stuffed with cheese, pomegranate and royal cumin served with a rich saffron flavoured sauce. Our rice was perfectly cooked as was the bread. All dishes were beautifully plated. Service was fun, professional, and very knowledgeable. Tracey was also mentoring a new staff member. A lot of effort goes into training the staff as they go through three levels before they earn their name badge. Our reservation was for six, as it was for others. They do not open their door until six so we all sat in our cars until that moment. This felt a bit off putting until we learned that half of their staff have their “tea” at that point. Sounds like they look after their staff and it shows in the service. We watched many other interesting dishes being brought to other tables. We will definitely be back to enjoy the experience and taste other exotic dishes. Prices are reasonable and reflect this level of cuisine and dining experience.More

I picked up a food order from The Maharaja Restaurant. Food was excellent. The Indian receipes were different than the Punjabi restaurants I am used to. A wonderful change - Flavourful, beautiful, crisp and attractive. The gentleman who took my order was polite and helpful...in my deciding on the dishes to choose. I definitely plan on enjoying their food again.More

Being new to Toronto, I was searching for an Indian restaurant that provides quality for the price. Found this restaurant and decided to give a try after reading their positive reviews and attractive menu. Worth the try. Try their Dum chicken biryani which is one...of the best in this area. Will visit again!!!More

This visit turned out to be a real hidden. Right in our backyard. The four cuisines are all so nice and truly royal. The service was fast, pleasant and courteous.

Really looking forward to our meal here based on all the reviews and they just seemed to miss the mark. Professional and attentive staff with really good food presentation and service. Good food, but to be honest no better than many local Indian Restaurants and...at a considerable premium. The decor is not up to the pictures on the website and noticed several stains on carpets and chairs. The check in is too close to the front door, on a cold night a lot of cold air got in quickly. We will go again but it is not top of our list.More

I recently went to The Maharaja with my friends for my birthday dinner. We were warmly welcomed by the manager Jasjeet. The ambience and interior is beautiful. Food is delicious with very creative menu. The staff is very warm and friendly. We were served by...Jagseer who took very good care of us and also by Jasjeet. We would surely recommend The Maharaja to all our friends! Will come back again!More
