“There is no better restaurant.”

The venue, the staff and most importantly the food are the finest. This is the best place to go for a fabulous meal with splendid service of the highest calibre. I'd never choose to go anywhere else! The value here is amazing. Long live the Maharaji!!!!

“Best Indian Food in Ipswich”
This Family run restaurant has the best Indian food in Ipswich, I have visited many times and you will get exactly the same quality and Taste every time.Very reasonly priced good value for money and the most friendly staff.  I have also had Takeaway's and the food again is exactly the same as eating at the reataurant.Never once let us down. 

Manic the owner deserves the awards they have one.

“Excellent food attentive service”
Been here many times in the past, once visited three times over B/H weekend, bit extreme but food was great. Great menu choice, food always hot & plentiful. Staff very polite & attentive, wasn't sure Manager Malik would remember me as it had been a while since I had been there but was greeted very warmly.
If you're looking for a great Indian meal look no further

“friendly and good value”
i came here with friends on a sunday night, the waiters were very friendly and the food good. we ordered several dishes and two of us found that they were not hot enough and when we mentioned this they swiftly made us a new dish which tasted amazing and was just as hot as we wanted. good food and not too expensive either.

“Great restaurant - personally run by owner Mr Miah”
Warm personal welcome from Mr Miah, real buzz in the restaurant and despite being busy very good service for the four of us which the owner personally oversees. We had the fixed menu which was great value and a lovely selection of food finished with coffee and loads of mints. Total bill including lagers, wine and food £80 - great value! Lots of locals and plenty of 'repeat' business - always a good sign.

“We eat here all the time”
It is a very nice local curry house. They have been in this location for a long time. Wide selection of dishes. It get's busy on Saturday nights. They also do take away.

“Delightful dining”
I visit Ipswich every month and always look forward to dining at the Maharani.  The atmosphere is always welcoming and the food is freshly prepared and well presented.  Any special requests are catered for without difficulty. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wishing to explore a variety of Asian dishes.

“Maharani Magic”
I have been eating at the Maharani for more than 20 years and have always received a warm welcome friendly service and excellent Indian cuisine. There is a wide choice of dishes with many house specialities. Prices are very reasonable and portion sizes are generous . I would strongly recommend this restaurant.

“17 years and still number1”
Have used it for many years, my kids have eaten here since they were babies, manik and his staff are like family, they always make you feel welcome, and the food is by far the best you will eat in suffolk, this is why, its the greatest indian you will ever step foot in, so please try it and you won't be disappointed. Thanks for reading.john, louise, lana, , john, and molly. Thanks manik and all your staff.

“Brilliant staff and wonderful food”
I booked a large table at the maharani for my partners birthday and from booking over the phone to leaving the restaurant the staff were really friendly and welcoming. The table was booked for 12 people and all of us enjoyed the food and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. The waiters even provided my partner with a birthday present which was very thoughtful. We will be booking up a table again very soon.

“Best in ipswich”
Me and my family have tried many of the Indians in ipswich but maharani is the best of all. The owner Manik miah is a great host with a friendly good team around him. Fantastic restuarent and so great to go and eat in its even better than having take away. Would recommend to anyone.

“Lovely grub”  
What a place, full of unique flavours, the food is always top notch and served by some of the best staff, try the goat curry it is just amazing or the Handi dish in its own pot....yummy

“Best Indian meal”
Fantastic food, lovely staff. The management cooked me a dish that was not on the menu, i told them what i liked and they created my dinner. Excellent

“Pure Tasty”
We tried this place as our usual Indian seems to have gone down in quality. All seven of us were delighted in our meal. So tasty and nice to see other dishes available that you don't normally see. Well done guys.

“Best Indian Restaurant in Ipswich”
Fantastic food, never had a bad meal.  Owner always welcoming and attentive. My first choice for Indian food in Suffolk.

“Consistently brilliant”  
This is my favourite Indian in Ipswich. The staff are the friendliest of any restaurant in town and the food is really good every time. I highly recommend them for take-away deliveries too!
