We were in Bergen twice recently and returned to this restaurant as it had been good the first time. The Lahsuni Tikka was excellent, and the Lamb Rogan Josh and Beef Corma were both very good. Comparable to good places in London for quality and cost. If you are tired of fish, come here!

The food here a great, so I give it 5 stars. It is quite pricey, but not compared with other restaurants in Bergen. I have had experience with 'unfriendly' staff who had problems with children. So, I order take away and we enjoy it at home. It works out very well.

I have been here many times before, and I love the food here. As spicy as you wish. Today we was early, so the service wasn't the best ( to few people)- but very polite Will be back

Maharaja scored high with me in several ways. The restaurant is physically attractive with an attentive staff and extensive choices covering all realms. My lamb curry was delicious and my partner's chicken was very good also. The only thing that I did not care for is that the chutneys are not brought out with the appetizers, but are offered on...

We ordered takeaway and they managed to mix the two dishes up. The dish that was ordered mild was hot and vice-versa. Ordered three nan bread and only got two. If this was a cheap local restaurant I would not mind, but this is a pricey place and the food is not that great, either. It is decent, but I... More

We tried dinner here while in Bergen as it was a short walk from our hotel and were disappointed by the quality of the food. The poor service made the experience even worse as our waitress seemed overworked and annoyed, Would not recommend this place.

Superb alternative for vegetarians. I'm no expert on Indian food, but the food at this restaurant seem more authentic Indian then other places in Bergen. It doesn't feel like they have tried to adjust the food to Norwegian palettes. The prices are a little high, but far from unreasonable. The staff is friendly but could be more knowledgeable about their... More

Family dinner was very disappointing. The food took ages, which can be fixed with friendly and attentive staff but here they failed. We ran out of water and tried to contact the staff without luck, so the end of the meal was without liquid. No questions regarding coffee or dessert, and it was also difficult to ask for the check.... More

I've gone to Indian restaurants in many countries and I did not expect this to be as excellent as London, for example. And it was good -- I would not complain about the quality -- except it did not justify the high prices. We didn't have any problem with the service.

We were so very tired and hungry when we arrived at Maharaja. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and had many vegetarian choices--a problem for us in Bergen, Norway. The wait staff was a bit slow but the food was worth the wait.
