This visit was with Peterborough Curry Club and the first time to Maharanis for our members, yet we were made to feel extremely welcome by the staff who were attentive and helpful throughout the meal. We took advantage of the restaurant’s Wednesday night deal as it seems had most of Deeping as the restaurant was at capacity with several other large groups.
Starters were good and to my surprise they even had the Nargis kebab on the menu – this is a dish of legend and a bit of a rarity, at least around Cambridgeshire restaurants. There was a bit of a delay between starters and mains, but we were not in a rush and didn’t feel like we were kept waiting too long.

I enjoyed my main course (Jeera chicken) and others said they enjoyed theirs also, however they would have preferred a wider choice for non-meat eaters, perhaps more seafood options or more vegetarian choices.

Desserts were the typical bought-in selection found at Indian restaurants across the country with the iconic “Punky” ice cream for children. Needless to say no-one opted for a dessert (India does have a sweet tooth so why are desserts so often neglected on menus in British Indian restaurants?).

Overall a very good visit and a venue we would be happy to revisit on a future curry club outing.
