We visited on a Saturday evening, we tried a paneer and a butter chicken dish, both were quite small portions, the nann and the roti were freshly made and nice, the rice we ordered was cold. The service was average, not sure I would bother to visit again. The cleanliness of the whole place needs improvement.

The Short Version: We were extremely disappointed with our first (& last) visit to Maroush today because not only was this unauthentic Indian food but the overall experience was one that was poor.

Longer Version: After touching down from KL and straight to the Langkawi Wildlife Park for a few hours, we were starving like hungry crocodiles. What better way to satisfy then tried and tested Indian cuisine? So we opted based on TA recommendation of this place including the fact they had “no satisfied, don’t pay” type offer which could only encourage you to try it out. Anyway, we were served very oily papadoms to start of with, then came very light, almost watery, full of ice cubes sweet mango lassi, which was anything but sweet. We were offered some sort of syrup to make it sweet! I’ve had mango lassi all over the world and nothing tasted like this and not in a good way. Then came my mint lemonade which was served warm?! Normally I’d expect the sweet mango lassi not to have ice but the lemonade to have
Ice or at least be made with cold water rather than (tap?) warm.

At the end we were not charged for the drinks - the least that could be done.

As for food, it’s bland, not spicy, tasteless. Won’t need to say anything else - we were a group so tried a variety of chicken, lamb, fish and rice dishes. Nothing was authentic Indian about it except the photos and decor of the place.

We tried this place out before another Indian (Colonel India). Don’t try Indian food in Langkawi if you’ve eaten Indian food in India, England, Middle East or the real deal in peoples homes.

We ended up ordering three sets of papudums that came with a delicious raita mango chutney mixed sauce, papudums were perfectly crisp and delicious. We also had a paneer butter masala and a garlic and butter naan. We both really enjoyed our meal here and would definitely to again, not too heavy compared to other Indians we've had in Malaysia either.

Nice Indian restaurant with food thats not greasy & heavy like other Indian restaurants. We ordered Tea, Onion Pakoras ... we liked it so much for tea time snacks that we ended up eating dinner at the same place. Dinner was nice & home cooked types... not too greasy kinds. Warm & welcoming staff. Nice music too!
