My food tasted bad. - Edit

Nice staff and fair prices. But my dish was not good at all. Might be something wrong with my dish, since all it tasted was smoke, and my girlfriends dish was OK. Nan bread was ok. Restroom is tiny, and you're almost sitting face to face with the cheff while doing your thing.

Pros: Vegan options labeled. cheap.

Cons: My entire dish tasted bad. Nan bread could been a

Very tasty food - Edit

Visited this restaurant twice while on holiday in playa del ingles, and thoroughly enjoyed it both times! In a place where it's very difficult to find anything other than a cheeseless pizza or a dish that omits most of the ingredients to make it vegan, it was refreshing to find somewhere that was knowledgeable about a vegan diet and offered many options and substitutes (soy-based) to cater to that.

The menu offers a separate section for veg starters and mains, both are plentiful in options. Although as mentioned on other reviews the markings for vegan items are very confusing, but once we explained to the owner that we were vegan she was very helpful in explaining what dishes were vegan and which could be made vegan. The nicest thing was how happy she was to help! We were delighted to find that most of the curries could be made vegan on request whether on the veg curry list or not. The starters were delicious, particularly the potato patties topped with chickpeas. For mains, I ordered the mock-meat rogan josh (minus the yoghurt) both times, and it was delicious.

The atmosphere in the restaurant is very welcoming, as much as it can be in a shopping centre, so I wouldn't let that put you off.

Cons: the menu does state that all naan breads are vegan, but while speaking to the owner she did mention that the naan breads were made with egg... slightly confusing when the menu states one thing and we were told another, so I'd avoid the naan breads.

Pros: Lovely food with lots of choices, Wonderful service, Nice atmosphere

Tasty vegan food - Edit

Very tasty indian food and several dishes on the menu. But the marks are really a bit confusing. Better to ask the staff. They have mock meat based on soy.
Like every restaurant in the Yumbo Center the atmosphere is not so cosy

Pros: Tasty food, Mock meat

Cons: Not a cosy atmosphere

Awesome Vegan food - Edit

We ate three times at this restaurant and the effort they put in serving an amazing Vegan dinner is just great! Owners Asha and Moti are very friendly just like their waitress Alison. We tried the vegan fish, -shrimp, -chicken tikka and everything was just mouthwatering and finger licking good. In a place where it is not easy to find good vegan food I would highly recommend this restaurant. We where there with 5 vegans the last time and we can't wait to go again.

Pros: Vegan fish dish, Vegan shrimp tandoori, Vegan chicken tikka

Cons: none

Nice vegan food - Edit

We first tried the other Indian restaurant Zeyka, which has better reviews on tripadvisor but we actually liked the taste of the food at Maharaja better. It tastes of more - our food was pretty delicious actually.

Their menu is really confusing though (one menu was different from the other) and it has so many dishes both vegan and vegetarian that it is confusing to look at. Nice with much to choose from though! :-) They write they have marked the vegan dishes but be aware - when you read through the ingredient listed they are not vegan but vegetarian. We ended up simply explaining to the waiter that we were vegan and she understood immediately and made sure we got our dishes veganized.

Their vegan mock meat is good.

Don't go there for the atmosphere. It's placed in the outdoor mall Yumbo Centre which is not very cosy.

Pros: good taste, much to choose from, serves vegan mock meat

Cons: don't go there for the ambiance
