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

Great food! A more imaginative menu than usual in Indian restaurants, particularly fish dishes. Service and dining environment were very pleasant. Highly recommend.

Overall we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. When we arrived they were not aware of our booking however they accommodated us in 15 minutes at a table.

Food was good, but service was dreadfully slow, very much focused on getting people crammed through the door even though could not cope with the level of business they had.
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.

Very over priced food, nice enough restaurant but they got our starters and main course wrong. Won't be going again shame as the location is great.

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.
