The decor and surroundings are fairly dated and on occasion, it's a squeeze past some of the tables. Ignore that, as the food is excellent. A couple of dishes are really great, goan green curry and chana dishes, my personal preference is for madras strength here, as otherwise i find them a bit mild. I've been coming here for about...

Fresh poppadoms to start. Quick, friendly and great service. Really delicious food- chicken tikka masala and chicken palak (chicken and spinach). So good! Wonderful 21st birthday treat! Really reasonable prices too! Make sure you book in advance because quite a tiny location.

The Raj is always busy as it consistently serves nice food. There are plenty of vegetarian options, although I would like to see aloo chaat on the menu as its a personal favorite of mine. The staff are always friendly and service is always good.

Small local business so reluctant to be over critical. . Friendly warm environment. Cheap price overall. Traditional curry house feel. Poor cheap food ingredients unfortunately. We had several dishes and the quality just wasn't up to scratch. Runny curry sauce. The meat was firm and not soft and slow cooked as you would expect. Rice too firm and dry. Small... More

Phoned for a last minute booking for 4 and was told that if we could go straight away they could fit us in. The service was very good and the food was excellent. We will certainly go back. They also do a take-away service for those nights you just want to stay in.

We've visited The Raj on several occasions and it has never failed to please. The food is good at mid range price wise. The chefs specials are always interesting and they add new dishes from time to time. Friendly staff, a nice atmosphere at a reasonable price.

Ichbal and his team provide such warm and friendly service it's a pleasure to visit. It's very popular so booking is advised but if they have space they will always try to squeeze you in. In all the times I've visited I've never if a bad experience. The sizzling Lamb is beautiful and they will cater for all tastes, sometimes... More
