Friendly waitress but the food was average. Chicken tika was dry, onion kulcha was under cooked and doughy, raita was very watery, butter chicken isn't worth a mention.

I've found it can be a bit difficult to find really good Indian food in Cairns but Maharajas is a great find. We've dined in a few times and service was always lovely and quick. Mostly though we get it to go so we can order extra and enjoy the next day too.

Maharajas Indian restaurant just continues to deliver that top quality food and service which makes one want to come back again and again.

Charming Indian restaurant with tasty offerings, most dishes available in mild, medium or hot. Mild dishes suited the young kids in company. Reasonably priced drinks and friendly no fuss service. We will return before holiday ends

We visited Maharajas two nights during our stay, once out of curiosity and again because we loved the delicious food! As others have said, the naan is great (we tried the garlic naan). The rice is also good. We ordered the Lamb Rogan Josh and a Butter Chicken on our first visit, and Aloo Gobi and Aloo Palak on our... More

Our second visit in 24hours, love the food. Typical poms who crave Indian food were not disappointed, we are going back a third time & taking a carry out to take home! Recommendations is Chicken Tikka masala & a special chicken dish with added spices, the nann bread is superb!

Nothing better than delicious lamb biriyani! Cooked beautifully, tasty and fragrant. Lovely meal to take away for Christmas Eve on a balmy Palm Cove evening.

Location was difficult to find as street address on Veiver's Road has no signage and had to ask a passerby in the resort where it might be. Cute, small casual style restaurant. Curry was good and bread was nice too. Service was excellent, overall a pleasant experience.

We went early in the evening so not many people there at the time. Both our meals were of good quality. Service was ok but so it should of been with the amount of guests at the time. The only downfall is the pricing. Well and truly overpriced.
