About Maharaja - Telford
About the restaurant
The Maharajas were the kings of India during the period of the Raj, and if there was a king of curry houses in Telford, Maharaja would be it. They’ve been around for years on the High Street in Madeley, and their reputation for high quality Indian cuisine, for superb service and now – since their recent refurbishment – welcoming and stylish decor. Book a table now for a meal at a tried and trusted favourite.
At Maharaja on Madeley High Street, they something that few other restaurants in Telford can boast. 27 years in business – 15 of them under the stewardship of Raf, their current manager – and a loyal clientele is an obvious strength, but what really sets them apart is their dedication to moving forward rather than admiring what they have achieved. They have an evolving Indian menu and a record number of punters coming through the doors: so if you haven’t already been, then now is as good a time as any.
The draw at Maharaja is, of course, their menu. Starters include some of the favourites beloved by the British public – bhajis, samosas, papadoms and more – and the mains are a mix of classic curries and tandoori treats. Their house specialities depart from the normal Indian restaurant fare. One particular point of note is their use of duck as an ingredient, such as in the tawa, infused with spices and served on the eponymous dish. Visitors to this part of the High Street in Madeley in Telford are in for more surprises: a book a table now and take the plunge.
