Established all the way back in the 70’s, Maharani Indian Restaurant has become a long-standing fixture in Bentleigh, and the first point of call for locals when they are craving a delicious Indian feast. Located on Patterson Road, Maharani Indian Restaurant draws in diners every day of the week and on the extensive menu you are sure to find all of your favourite dishes, whether you want to spice things up or are craving a mild and creamy korma. We recommend beginning with the tandoori platter, a combination of mouthwatering meat and seafood cooked in the tandoor, before moving on to some malai kofta (potato dumplings with cheese, nuts and dried fruit, cooked in a creamy sauce), lamb rogan josh or the classic butter chicken. A favourite among Melbourne’s curry lovers, Maharani Indian Restaurant can fill up quickly – book ahead to avoid missing out!
This is a great little local gem. The food is delicious at a very reasonable price. This has now become my weekly local restaurant (I also recommend take away). The staff are always so welcoming and accommodating. They have a great vegetarian menu for a vego like myself. Highly recommend.
Great food at a great price. My local gem. The chef will cook your meal according to the spice heat you like. Delicious every time I come here. Highly recommend
Very comfortable atmosphere. Food was delicious and value for money. Service was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Have been several times before and will definitely return.
Love the food there. Or even of our favourite Indian restaurants in Melbourne. The food is beautiful and is fairly cheap, especially with generous serving sizes.
Food is great - authentic and really good prices. Perfect for a local inexpensive meal. Love it. There is an extensive menu, lots of vegetarian also - love the eggplant masala with potatoes and peas!!!. Also had the chicken with spinach which was really tasty although not a dish I would have ordered but I enjoyed it all.
The menu is varied, they cater for those who want it hot/ spicey through to those who want the opposite. The service is quick but they don’t rush you out of the restaurant. We had a birthday there and they were happy to serve the cake I prepared. The cost is very reasonable. Would I go again- definitely.
Lovely food, relaxed environment. Great little local! We introduced our kids to Indian food here and now they want to go back tomorrow. Great night out, and byo too!
