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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I last visited the Raj a few years ago and was very disappointed. Visiting yesterday evening couldn't have been more different. The food was amazing and best Indian food I've had in a long time. Very tasty, not greasy and good portions. Service was good...too. Will definitely be back.More

We ordered a take-away I asked for dishes that were not on the menu. A tikka Ceylon and a vegetarian Dhansak. The restaurant said no problem at all… The curries were perfectly cooked! Delicious! Delivery in good time. We thoroughly enjoyed our take-away. I’m going...to eat at the restaurant on my birthday!! :) Thank youMore

Had a takeaway from the New Raj this evening and I must say the portions were tiny compared to usual, must of had 6 smalls bits of Lamb / Chicken and absolutely loads of sauce. Chips portion were small as well. Preferred the old Raj...but may give it another go as it’s right on our doorstep.More

having ordered online and paying on what looked like the raj website ,we then get a text 20 minutes later saying they are not open and we will get our money back in 3-5 days!(it was a food hub website which looked totally like the...raj website!) so we ring the raj and they say its got nothing to do with them ,they are trying to shut it down! if you dont get it shut down you WILL lose customers! so we thought we would re order as it is our local indian and we have always had good food from there! being under new management we thought the food would probably be better as you are trying to keep your customer base and keep people coming back! im afraid to say that the food was poor ! the chicken tikka over cooked and bland came with just a bag of chopped onions chicken pathia ,less chicken than normal,bland chicken tikka masala ok we will not be going back there ,and we live 4 minutes away ! its sad to see that the food when opened at home looked very under whelming!More

The Raj is now under new management so we thought we would try it out as we had been a regular customer at the "old" Raj. We were welcomed upon arrival and shown to our table where our drinks order was taken. We all ordered...something different and every one of us thought our meal was delicious - perhaps slightly hotter than usual, which is fine by me. The pershwari nan was freshly cooked and tasted amazing. We will certainly be returning back very soon.More

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE AND APPALLING FOOD! What has happened to your service and food Raj of Black dam? We ordered Chicken Tikka Byriani Saag Aloo and Pesharwi Naan. The Tikka was cold the Saag Aloo was too spicy, other people who read this review might agree...when I say it should of mild taste. We didn't get the Vegetable Curry that normally accompanies it. When I called the restaurant to let them know this they said they would call back.... no call back This is terrible service and food shame on your restaurant We will not be ordering from you again. instead we will make sure to order from another Indian restaurant in Basingstoke.More

The whole meal was excellent, super tasty and proportions large. The tables were nicely spaced so that some feeling of privacy was given at each table. The decoration was traditional and made us all feel very welcome. The waiting staff were all very attentive to...each table and very polite at all times. We will certainly be going back again soon. I do have one regret that no desserts were on the menu as I have this desire to have jelabi that i remembered eating from many years ago. Highly recommend this hidden gem.More

Used the Raj for quite a few years and it was without a doubt the best indian in Basingstoke , most recent delivery turned up with the updated menu showing it is now called the New Raj At Blackdam , obviously expected the price increases...with current climate but did not expect the smaller portions and less taste. Really disappointed and my hunt continues for a decent curry in Basingstoke. Obviously under new ownership and I feel robbed.More

Ate here on Tuesday night. Everything we ordered was delicious - the lamb biryani, chicken tikka, Bombay aloo and chapattis were all just so tasty. Will definitely be coming back again.
