I have been coming to Inverness for a number of years and when Indian food was needed I would head to Sam's Indian without fail. This time round I thought about trying somewhere new. Seeing this restaurant had good reviews and was central we thought why not. The waiters/waitresses were very welcoming and attentive. My partner ordered the chicken korma... More

Went to the Rajah at the recommendation of family while we were up in Inverness for the weekend. We were not disappointed. Although we hadn't booked, we were able to be squeezed in on a Friday night (although we were told they'd need the table back by 8.15, about 45mins time which was fine). The service was good, although our... More

The food is excellent - a great selection of wonderfully cooked dishes. The service is very good, staff are friendly and efficient. The decor is tasteful, the location is very central. We recommend this restaurant to the guests that stay at our B&B and they always come back full of praise (and curry!) and rightly so! We'll be back soon.

I visited the Rajah with a friend who already knew of its reputation & discovered that this good rep was well deserved. Anyone can cook a curry, but few can master an Indian experience and that is exactly what the Rajah does! Impeccable service, great atmosphere but most importantly excellent food is what you get when you visit this restaurant.... More

We visited The Rajah at the recommendation of a friend and were very pleased that we did! Even early on a Thursday evening out of season they were fairly busy ... Which says a lot. The Balti dishes were very tasty, if a little on the hot side of medium which was fine for me, but may catch some people... More

I am never disappointed with this restaurant. I usually have the occasional takeaway but as family had travelled a long way to visit, I decided to treat myself to a restaurant visit which was not disappointing. The food was excellent as was the service and not overly priced.
