In Harrogate on a Friday evening after day at York races we were in need of evening meal. Having a drink in the excellent Little Ale House (which is directly below Ali Raj) one of us went up to Ali Raj to see if they had a table (hadn't booked). Fortunately one was available in about 20 minutes so we... More

Beautiful decor. Perfect for couples or 4people. Small+intimate but enough room between tables so no awkwardness. Basic menu but very prompt and freshly made food. We had 3 popadoms,onion bhaji for starter. Mixed special bhuna/mushroom rice.chicken koraii with naan. 2halves cobra-£40. Good value. Only 1 comment which is really personal preference-the bhuna was a bit bland. Seemed lacking in the... More

Yet again, Ali Raj continues to impress. Disappointed they didn't have a couple of sides on the menu I would have expected. Food, service and portions were great.

A very small restaurant but the food was lovely and fresh service was good portions could have been a little bigger but on the whole worth a visit

We had a great meal and service here. Try the 'special karahi' delicious. Good value and very tasty. Don't usually eat everything but never left a bit!

We went here for a joint birthday with my son and his family. We all enjoyed our curry very much. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. They were particularly good with our twin granddaughters, who are five years old. Whenever we feel like a curry, this is our first port of call.

We'd originally booked a different Indian restaurant but we didn't like the look of it so came back here. Can't rate it highly enough. Good food and great service. And it's above the little ale house - what more could you want?!

Went on Friday after the cinema. As we were handed menus we were told we needed to order as the kitchen was closing. It was 9.45pm. We should have left right then but decided to stay as this place used to be wonderful. Starter was ok, got a mixed sizzler for two, however the salad was dry and poorly presented.... More

Firstly, this is a really friendly place, (unlike Cardomom Black, where you always feel there'll be a dispute over the bill or at least a scowl from the management). Secondly, the food is good, probably the best curry in the town centre, and finally it's got a great little bar below it now - the Little Ale House - just... More

I can't think of a better place to go for a curry. I've been going here for 20+ years now and it's always consistently good. The guys that run the place are so friendly and will do anything to help. Great food, great service and cosy atmosphere.
