This gourmet Indian, inspired by the exclusive polo clubs of the Raj, wins high ratings in every chukka for its “very good” food and service. Consistent success since its opening in 2014 paved the way for a second outlet from the same team, the two-year-old Maharaja’s Retreat just along Maid Marian Way.

Impressive marks, if on limited feedback, on this gourmet Indian, which set up shop in 2014 on Nottingham’s trafficky Maid Marian Way, and has won a firm local following for its decadent, if not too subtle, dishes; off-shoot Maharaja’s Retreat opened five doors down, in May 2019, replacing a seafood joint which stayed open for barely a month.

A relative newcomer to Nottingham’s ‘curry corner’, John & Barry Dhaliwal’s (“the original owners of Memsaab next door”) polo-themed operation is inspired by the lavish banquets thrown by sporting maharajas and: “a smart traditional curry restaurant, with a good range of dishes, all of which are tasty with a tendency to be hearty rather than delicate, but none the worse for that!” and delivering some “super flavours”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
