When one thinks of an Indian palace by a lake, the immediate images that spring to mind are of the iconic Taj Mahal, rising above the waters, the Golden Temple in Amritsar, spiritual centre of the Sikh religion, or at a push the Ananthapura Lake Temple in Kerala, one of the most beautiful religious sites in India. These are all relatively expensive and difficult to reach from Sydney however, so get your lake-themed Indian kicks from Maharaja’s Lakeside Indian Restaurant in Baulkham Hills. They’ll serve you up a huge range of subcontinental specialities that include tandoori meats, classic curries and regional Indian delicacies until you’re absolutely sated. Book a table today.
The Maharajas were the ancient kings of India and the progenitors of the famed Mughal Empire, the cuisine of which is the basis of almost all Western Indian restaurants. It’s understandable, then, that Maharaja’s Lakeside Indian Restaurant specialise in the most decadent of Indian delicacies – pick one of their banquets and make the very most of what they have to offer out in Baulkham Hills, close to the Strangers Creek lake and reached easily via Norwest Boulevard.
The banquets at Maharaja’s are really something special. Bring a mate – they start from two people – and include seekh kebabs, chicken tikka and onion bhaji to start, butter chicken, beef vindaloo and veggie jalfrezi with raita, naan and basmati rice to follow and ice cream to finish. We can’t say fairer than that – and neither can they over at Norwest Boulevard in Baulkham Hills. Make the journey up there to enjoy one of the best curry houses in Sydney, but do remember to book ahead as they have been known to get quite crowded on occasion and this is certainly not one to be missed.
Good food and great service. Friday night entertainment is good as well. Staff are friendly and you get attended to promptly when you have a booking.
We were seated immediately although it was packed and very busy. The wait for our food wasn't too long either which was great! We throughly enjoyed our experience here.
Good food and great service. We enjoyed the views too. Food that we had was the banquet - dal, palak paneer, sabji, roti and naan (all fresh food)
Great spot with friendly service .... Live music was easy to listen to....very authentic food.... Just one hiccup.... Ordered duck dish and got beef but they were approx the same price so i didn't bulge and it was delux as well
Aircon was far too cold. Even in summer. Our waiter did not use eye contact, did not offer more beverages and was not too attentive. The food was westernised version of Indian food. Too sweet and not enough chilli. The kind of Indian food non Indian food eating westerners would enjoy.
Just a little bit too noisy I did ask for a quiet table. Also had to wait 10 more mins for my table. Still enjoyed the food though and the service was good.
Tasty Tandoori Lamb Cutlet. Mutton Briyani rice is nice, especially the Mutton is tender perfect for elderly, but the serving could be bigger to fill the tummy.
Usually, the food is very good. This time the Chicken Korma was very bland and the sauce was very runny. The lamb rogan josh has a bit too much fat. As it was Friday night, they were very busy so it was hard to attract the attention of the waiters
