I am very particular about curry. Rajas is the only Indian restaurant in Bakewell. Plucked up the courage to visit. I like North Indian Punjabi or Moghal style food.not to hot or too bland . . We were pleasantly surprised. Excellent food, good service, freshly made Roti , heaven!!! Staff very helpful, went extra mile to serve whatever we requested.... More

We were visiting Bakewell for a few days and had heard great things about this place. I'm always a bit sceptical about other people's curry recommendations because in the past they've been disappointing...however, I'm glad I believed the hype this time! Not only was the food outstanding but the staff were so friendly and it just made the whole experience... More

Friendly, welcoming restaurant with delicious food - not bland or underspiced. As a vegan, I really appreciated the staff going the extra mile to make sure that my meal was dairy-free. The chef even cooked vegan pakoras especially for me. My (meat-eating) partner was full of praise too. Thank you!

We went to Rajas as everywhere else had stopped serving food at 8pm. It turned out to be a lucky find and the service was excellent as was the food. Reasonably priced and a very good choice on the menu.

Visited here last night - New Years Eve - Had a very good meal. the service was excellent, and the staff very friendly. I must say My main course was fantastic, so was the pashwari nan bread, so was rather surprised by some of the other comments on here. I personally would highly recommend the place, clean, nice décor and... More

Went for meal on 5th. Nov Both had Lamb Rogan Josh, very tender and tasty. Asked for extra fresh Coriander, served a full complimentary side dish of it, great.

We popped over to Rajas on a Saturday night, whilst we were visiting Bakewell for the weekend. Our AirBnB hostess had recommended them, as she goes fairly often (a local recommendation is always my preference!). Having phoned ahead to ensure we had a table, we were promptly seated on arrival. We opted for a starter and main each. Starter was... More

.Busy atmosphere and attentive and friendly staff, but very bland and uninspiring food. Our curries lacked any really special flavour or taste of spices, but rather a very ordinary and forgettable meal.Whilst service was good, it did feel a little rushed. Certainly not memorable , just very average.

We went mid-week. It was fairly quiet, as you would expect. The food was all of a reasonable standard, as you would expect to find in a reasonable Indian restaurant. If you fancy a curry, then this will do the job. If you don't have a strong preference for what type of food you eat, then there are 1-2 better... More
