Maharaja is well known around Scotland for serving some of the most authentic Indian food in the country. From their premises on King Street in Stirling's city centre, this famous restaurant dishes out food that’s authentic, affordable and packed with authentic homemade ingredients and fresh produce. The food is just one of many aspects of why this restaurant is so awesome – in addition to a stylish setting and incredible food, you’ll also be treated to a wide range of craft and import beers, wines and spirits.
The menu at Maharaja is extensive and features all the classic Indian dishes plus some signature dishes. Start off with some tandoori chicken chaat or the king prawn butterfly, before moving on to one of Maharaja’s mouth-watering curries. We recommend the Punjabi garlic chilli or the Royal Delight (a slightly spicy, rich korma with ground cashews and almonds infused with brandy and a touch of tandoori masala). With its reputation for serving up divine Indian cuisine and its stylish, modern decor, Maharaja can fill up quickly. To guarantee a table, making a reservation at this Stirling city centre restaurant in advance is advised.
Excellent quality of food and service - a great value meal for all of our large group and highly recommended. Nothing too much trouble for the staff
Absolutely amazing food. I couldn't stop eating! Service was great. Clean restaurant. Wonderful variety of dishes. I had the tandoori chicken masala and it was delicious!
Brilliant as ever, never will you have a nicer meal anywhere else. 5 *****. Friendly staff big portions. Will definitely be back again cheers Maharajas !
prompt and polite service from staff who had good knowledge of menu which has a wide and varied choice of dishes. The meals we chose on this visit were excellent and the portions generous
Had a lovely meal at Maharaja. Selected it based on reviews in TripAdvisor. Service was lovely, the meal even better. We ordered too much (everything sounded so good) and were only sorry we had no fridge in the hotel to store the leftovers to take away. The chicken korma was the best I ever had - perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked.
We arrived early at the restaurant and although they were very busy we were accommodated very well. We were given a nice table, better than the one reserved for us later, in what is a nicely decorated place. Staff were very attentive and efficient, drinks were ordered and delivered quickly and within a few minutes our starters arrived. The food was very nice , beautiful in fact. We had been told by a waitress in the hote we were staying in that this was the best Indian restaurant in Scotland. Not sure if that is true but it must be up there !
I was absolutely delighted. The Maharaja is a beautiful restaurant. Food was delicious and staff were so friendly and helpful. Top marks from me and my partner. We'll definately be back! :)
Always a pleasure to visit the Maharaja , consistently good food of traditional Indian cuisine using only the best of ingredients. Intimate and relaxed atmosphere with attentive staff.
The food was excellent, along with fantastic service. All food served quickly, with no waiting around between courses. The only downside was the table was very hot due to there being a radiator underneath it which could not be turned off, however next time we will make sure to ask for an alternative table. Looking forward to our next visit already.
Wonderfully pleasant and helpful staff. Comfortable atmosphere. Wide choice of food from various regions of India, including Goa. We chose Special Seafood Bhoona and Balti with chicken from the Chef's Specialities menu. Both were exquisite, with complex flavors and just the right level of spicing for our tastes.
Absolutely the best Indian food that I have ever enjoyed, and I lived in Hong Kong for years where there were innumerable Indian restaurants. We ate there twice it was so good. The Chicken Tikka dishes were absolutely wonderful, although all the dishes we had were great.
We are regular visitors. We are welcomed at the door, given helpful advice with the menu and attended to promptly even when the restaurant is busy. Staff friendly and ensure that you are enjoying your meal. Being able to book online is helpful.
Excellent food. Busy Saturday night but service was still good. Our favourite Indian restaurant of the moment. Prices are reasonable. Parking is available directly outside in the evening if you're lucky and there are car parks within easy walking distance.
Superb food and selection. Staff bey helpful and attentive. We were a party of 3 on a small table and additional family members came to join us and they had no problem getting larger table for us all.
Great food. Good vegetarian selection. Service was not fast but allowed plenty of time for chat. Staff were welcoming. I will definitely go back. Try the South Indian Garlic and Chilli - fab
The food was fantastic as always and the staff were happy to help with different questions. The service seemed a bit rushed at the end but we were 13 people, to be fair.
Really friendly welcoming staff made night special. Bit of a delay between starter and main but staff apologetic and had complimentary Baileys after meal make up for this. Good food and great service what more want.
Food was excellent, attentive service and good atmosphere. Some more unusual dishes on the menu too. We will be back! Location very central in Stirling, on street parking close by.
This was my first visit and I was not disappointed. The service was excellent with very friendly staff. Food was well above average and can't wait to go back and sample more of the dishes.
Excellent food and fantastic service. All 10 of us enjoyed the atmosphere. We don't live local but always make this restaurant our first choice when we are visiting Stirling.
Small, attentive, friendly restaurant. Varied menu. Good starters to pick from too. Very reasonable price. I Would highly recommend this restaurant. Was my first trip but will be back.
Top class Indian restaurant always consistant and staff are always helpful. Great menu and very reasonably priced. Parking is never a problem with spaces or car parks nearby.
Beautiful authentic food and fantastic service. Super friendly staff and the atmosphere is very relaxed and you don't feel rushed to eat your meal. Will definitely be back

Greeted with a smile. Excellent service. Food of the highest standard. Was our first time there and it certainly will not be the last. Would recommend it.
Fantastic,friendly cheerful staff,rapid service,by far the best Indian restaurant around.was even offered free tea or coffee,or a couple of free shots but unfortunately I was driving.fab place.
Excellent food and friendly service, the recommendation hitted the spot and the portions are more than enough. Fair pricing so if you look for an Indian restaurant in Sterling, choose the Maharadja!
Fantastic meal again couldn't finish it all , superb service from start to finish. Never had a bad experience simply fantastic, will definitely be back again.

fabulous meal the best of the best and service was brilliant. Booking through Quandoo was easy. We cannot wait to return for another superb meal.
We were greeted warmly and our reservation instantly recognised. The staff were attentive but not overly so. The service was excellent as was the food. Good value for money.
Great Indian meal in pleasant surroundings. This must be the best Indian restaurant in Stirling. Will definitely be back. I will be recommending this restaurant to family and friends.
Beautiful meal, friendly staff. Very welcoming place. Great prices too!! We have been around 5-6 times now, can't fault the place. Will most definitely be back soon.
Lovely tasty food especially the starter. Made with fresh ingredients and spices. Service good too not in your face but nice and attentive. Will visit again
Not so good in anything. Poor quality of food and service. Not only that we had to wait a long time but the food was not so good.
Having read the reviews on trip advisor we decided to book the restaurant. Firstly our drink order was returned as the draught soda and lime was undrinkable. Our popadoms were stale and I dont recommended the fish pakora. The chicken tikka garam masala main was cold and overall flavour a disappointment. What a let down.
