Our second visit to The Raj and unfortunately we will spend our money somewhere else next time. We had a yummy shared starter, but were let down by the main courses. The chicken tikka masala sauce was thin and greasy, so unfortunately we ate the...More

Had a Groupon voucher to use up and we weren't dissapointed. Food was lovely and staff . Restaurant was packed. Only downside is the tables are very close together and for couples you need to whisper as next door can hear everything.

Pleasant and friendly but the food average at best. The vegetable pakora was homogenised stodge with nothing identifiable as vegetables. My main course of bhuna lamb lacked taste, and my wife's Indian veg curry was peas and potatoes. Edible, but no return factor.
