Can't complain about this place, staff were top notch and very friendly. Seated and served quickly, all of our meals tasted delicious and they were courteous enough to upgrade my hungry friend Dillon to a king size portion for free. Would recommend.

I went in a group. Our leader for the night knew the place and what and how to order. So I got to taste a variety of items which were all excellent. I will go again.

Two of us have been for a dinner at Raj a couple of times, but a while ago. Never got around to leave a review. We are new to Indian food, but we enjoyed the meal and beautiful setting too! We are recommending this place to our friends and hopefully will be back soon!

If you are looking for somewhere that serves excellent food, with friendly and accommodating staff then you need to look no further than the Raj. The ambience is relaxing, clean and well designed. I'm not someone to share on sites like tripadvisor, however this restaurant needs to be shared and tried for yourself
