Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our second visit to Raj of Islington (we live locally and have just discovered it), and we were once again so happy with the experience! The food is a knock-out! Authentic regional dishes from different parts of India were varied, tasty and delicious....Favourites includes chicken jalfrezi, a really good paneer and spinach dish, a Goan prawn dish with coconut and a bindi vegetarian side. Fresh naan from the tandoor was also extremely more-ish, and my husband enjoyed the pilau rice (personally I’m not a fan of rice when surrounded by much more interesting dishes…). We were served by the same friendly and capable waiter both times. He was warm, courteous and struck just the right balance in chatting to make us feel very welcome and then leaving us to enjoy the feast in front of us. This place is an absolute gem on the Holloway Road. We will be back again soon!More

Having eaten here three or four times I would recommend dining at the restaurant rather than ordering online. On occasions where I have eaten in, it has been quiet, service has been about right and the place generally has a pleasant and welcoming vibe. The...menu is interesting and has more detailed and helpful descriptions of the dishes than most of these restaurants. However, the cooks don’t really understand western tolerance for spicy-ness. My companion asked for the Railway Curry (lamb) on the proviso that it would be mild and, you guessed it, too spicy. Similarly, I recently ordered takeout from this place and it was awful. For the most part it was cold and the curry itself was more water than food. The worst part is that I felt sick all night and ending up vomiting most of it at 4am!More

Went here for a pre cinema dinner. It was fantastic. I had had three Indian meals during my two weeks visit to London all included lamb and this by far was the best . The meat was so succulent and tasty. Would highly recommend

We went on a Saturday evening without a prior booking, they were happy to accommodate us. Varied menu. Food was very good and great service too. I’d go again when I’m next in the area!

Very nice food but the service is awful. The restaurant was 20% full and took ages for everything. Even ice cream took 30 min. Food is good

The food and service were superb! Good portions and prices too. Best chicken tikka massala I've had in London. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will certainly be returning soon.

Sit in, take away or delivery; the food is always fresh, fulsome, flavoursome and passionate. The menu covers the full flavour range of the sub-continent with sincerity and attention to detail. The portions are generous and reasonably priced. I am largely vegetarian, and they excel...- their Sag Aloo is outstanding as is their Baingan Thiyal (aubergine, tomato etc), while even a simple Dhal is subtle and flavoursome. I have tried a variety of their meat dishes, and have been equally impressed, especially by the selection of authentic regional dishes on their menu. Eating in is a special treat (the service is excellent, the venue spotless), but I live close enough by that home delivery arrives fresh and hot. I have visited India multiple times and eaten in multiple States with their own distinct menus and I highly recommend Raj of Islington. They are a real asset to my home neighbourhood of Holloway.More

Myself an my partner came here last night on a date and had a completely fantastic time. The portions were really generous, the food was utterly delicious, and the staff were lovely. We had appetisers (the chicken tikka starter was ENORMOUS and unbelievably good) followed...by a main, with 3 drinks each, as well as poppadoms, bread and rice, and the whole evening came to around £33 each! We had to leave in a rush due to a cinema booking, but the team were fantastic and potted everything up in takeaway boxes immediately. When my girlfriend left her hat in the restaurant, one of the staff ran after us down to road to make sure she got it back! We'll definitely be visiting again soon, and this is absolutely now our go-to takeaway for curries!More

I went to Raj in August with a friend. We had appetizers and a main meal. Honestly, we were impressed by the huge portions and by the delicious food. Staff is absolutely amazing, very kind, friendly and attentive. As I have few food intolerances, the...staff was very very kind and helped me to choose accordingly. Also, the place is spotless..so I totally recommend it!More
