We were a group of 4 who went from Kolkata on a Europe tour. We were in Helsinki for 2 days and visited this restaurant for dinner. We order Butter chicken and Tandoori naan.Chicken was half cooked with chunks of nutrela to give it a chicken feeling. Naan was too oily when we specifically ordered a plain naan. The waiters...

Food was way too oily, if you let your curry sit for 5mins , you can see layer of oil forming on the top , food tasted ok but definitely not going there again . Only one waitress was managing the restaurant so service was very poor . Overall thumbs down from my Indian palate.

We had two meals at Maharaja when we were in Helsinki, one lunch and another dinner and we were pleasantly surprised with the food quality, the restaurant serves authentic Indian and the food taste and quality is excellent, the best part of the food is the 'Naan' that they serve, fluffy and great to eat, so if you are game...

Had a plan to go Indian — and based on the experience years, no eons ago, chose Maharaja on Mannerheimintie. It has been there for such a long time and now after returning to Helsinki I had noticed that it is still pretty frequently patronized, so why not? Welcome to the restaurant and service in general was friendly and could... More

My family and I came here last night for a Friday night dinner. We were lucky enough to get a table without a reservation, but the couple after us was not. Fully booked at 6 pm. (Tip: if you can't get a table, you can order food out. We frequently get take-away from here too, and those servings are sure... More

Visited this restaurant whilst on business Food was authentic, portions were large and reasonably priced Chicken Tikka masala originally created for the British was flavoursome and was creamy Sadly for me they did not do Tarka dall, but not an issue at all Started with poppadum with lovely salad sweet chilli sauce Lovely and different from menus from UK

Having lunch there (tikka-masala chicken). A reasonably priced and very tasty, hot enough. Very much like in India though I have visited only Goa. If you seek a true Indian cuisine in Helsinki, I believe you won't be dissapointed choosing this one.

I invite frequently my friends to have an evening out and enjoy the Maharaja food. If you are more than two persons, I recommend a table reservation. The three-alternative-menus are good, and there are many alternatives for vegetarians and people with lactose-free or gluten-free diets.

Nice and fresh restaurant with great food. 2 people and we ordered 2 mixed plates. We wanted to order deserts right away but was told to wait... now we know why, BIG plates and it tasted great, couldn't fit desert unfortunately. The waiter could easy sold in that to us but didn't! Very professional. All this 56€. Great!
