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.

The food and service very average, disappointed at quality, taste. We expected an authentic , tasty chicken tikka, it was bland and we would not return.

Probably my 50th meal in Ali Raj but hadn't been for a while. Still my favourite simple curry house in Harrogate. We were two couples and it came out at £25 a head for poppadoms a delicious main course and alcoholic drinks - great value. Mustn't leave it so long till next time !

Small and very nice restaurant. My dad had his vindaloo fix. That should last him another month or so

Started using Ali Raj again, because we always seem to come back to it, after trying others in town. Had a few take aways, which were excellent, so decided to 'eat in' this time. The meal was delicious. We, both had Chicken Chat starters, then I had Chicken Shaslick and my wife had a Chicken Madras and we shared a... More
