    Food was at best average. Lamb tika was cremated and fish curry was disappointing. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Pre theatre dinner. Quite cramped wee table beside the bar. Felt as if we were being placed out of the way due to having booked through “Open Table”! Order taken very quickly. Really excellent choice of dishes. However, found it very difficult to understand the girl who was serving us because she was wore a mask and had a thick accent, plus the background music/noise didn’t help. It’s not the cheapest venue. £47 for two poppadoms, two dips, two main courses, one portion of rice, one soft drink and one Cobra beer. All in all it was enjoyable and we probably would go back due to its location and quality of food.

    Had a nice meal. Food overall was very good. Rice was very dry. Naan bread was best ever. Next time would not order the rice but would order even more Naan.

    First visit here while visiting St Andrews. We enjoy our curries from different areas ie India, Asia Bangladeshi etc, welcomed by friendly staff, and seated downstairs. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, the food was freshly made and tasty and we enjoyed a bottle of wine. The service was also good. Would return

    Maisha a good standard Indian but the thing that makes it special and different are the seafood dishes they serve! Crab curry and Tandoori prawns are particularly good!

    The staff were very friendly, but we got charged for poppadoms that we only took because the waiter offered them to us. We thought the 2 poppadoms were complimentary- they were not and this was not explained to us. The bill was very expensive for what we had, £66 for 2 courses and lager for 2 people. The salmon curry was delicious, but it was £16 for a small piece of fish. Very good food, but we left disappointed in how we had been swindled. We will not be back

    Only issue was the booking I made through this site. The booking was not in the book when I arrived to the restaurant. Which was a little concerning as I had booked a table for 8 for a relatives birthday. Luckily they were able to find us a table very quickly. Potentially could have been a disaster, especially as it was a Saturday night. I actually wanted an earlier booking. I wish I had just called as I probably would have been able to book for an earlier time.

    Decent enough curry house. Not the best but not the worst though certainly one of the most expensive that I've visited at more than £30 per head.
