RECENT REVIEWS FROM TRIPADVISOR

      Wow! Just wow! We’re so full, stuffed in a good way.
    What a wonderful experience. The food was colorful, perfectly spiced and perfectly served.

    We got papadums as a starter for gratis.
    Ordered the chicken mango curry, butter beef curry, mixed grill and a parneer naan & peshwari naan.
    All served very fresh and perfectly cooked.

    The service was excellent and the prices of the food great for the quality you get. We even got to take the leftovers home.

    For the diner a coke and 2 lassis we payed a little less than €50. Worth every penny!

    Be sure to go and eat here if you can. I hope we will come back this holiday.

      I cannot fault them and I have not had anything remotely close to this in Portugal and I have been searching for an experience like this for 4 years.

    Well done and thanks.

    review rating 5  One of the very few places where I tasted a bit of India...outside India! Wonderful quality-price ratio. Very well presented dishes. I really don't mind if they don't speak Portuguese and if the place is not the most fancy or if the air conditioning is not working (as read in other reviews). In the majority of Portuguese restaurants you'll be treated with much less care than in this authentic Indian restaurant that really didn't disappoint on any level. Try the salt lassi, absolutely delicious! Good job and keep it up!

    review rating 5  Maharani was truly a delicious surprise, one of the best Indian restaurants in Portugal by far (and I tried a lot) and the nearest Indian experience outside India. Tasteful and rich homemade food, very nice service and great location just 2 mins from Areia Branca beach. Definitely coming back and recommended!

  •   I respect other’s views but for us the food was of a very high quality and the main dishes were indeed something special and we have eaten in many Indian restaurants. Authentic taste and very well prepared. The taste sits on your tongue! We’ll be...More

  •   Truly great, authentic tastes with generous portions! Great, friendly ownership and staff who go out of their way for their customers and constantly seek to make the customer experience even better. A wholehearted recommendation, I eat at Maharani every time I visit Lourinha. SP

  • review rating 5  Everything about it is just great. The Lamb Tikka Masalla was really good, served in very generous portions. For dessert I had the Mango Kulfi which was remarkably good, specially when it comes to the way it was presented. Lastly, the environment was really fancy and nice.
