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.

Brilliant for families, couples or a get together with friends. All the staff are extremely pleasant and find time to chat and make you feel special whilst maintaining a professional manner. The food is well prepared and well presented and there is plenty of choice,...including cold puddings. The restaurant is very clean, cutlery and plates well polished. Highly recommended. Thank you all for a wonderful Valentines evening.More

We remembered eating at Rajas a few years ago when staying in Bakewell, and decided to visit again. We were not disappointed. There is so much choice on the menu it takes ages to read! I decided on the Arabian Lamb and it was absolutely...divine, so tender, and the sauce was gorgeous. My husband had the mixed Biryani and was more than satisfied. The service was excellent, despite being busy with both diners and take-aways, and we were very happy. We would definitely recommend this restaurant, and wish we lived nearer!More

Slop on a plate. The two chicken curries we ordered were absolutely swimming in oil, I had to drain it off before we could even attempt to serve the food. The sides were the same too. Don’t understand why the food needs to be swimming...in oil! It was disgusting.More

The food is poor, the curry’s are not authentic in any way and the bill was very expensive. The worst curry we’ve ever had.

We had a really lovely meal here. We can particularly recommend the Chicken Tikka Bhuna which was delicious. We’d almost stopped going out for Indian food as supermarket ready meals had gotten so good, but this restaurant reminded us just how good proper Indian food...can be.More

We dined here last night and really enjoyed it. Onion Baji was very nice as was the Arabian Lamb and Chicken Tika Rezala. The service was efficient and friendly. We found it reasonably priced and would definitely eat there again.

This was one of the best Indian meals I have had for a long time. Deliciously fresh and served hot. Service was excellent and it was good value given the quality of the food.

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant. Living just 20 minutes drive away it's our go to Indian restaurant. We have never been disappointed. We always go early evening and order a selection of dishes. Staff are lovely and happy to spend time explaining...the dishes when we want to try something new. Reasonable prices for delicious food.

Following a days walking my wife and I were looking forward to an Indian meal. We had reserved a table early at 6pm. On arrival, as might be expected, the restaurant was virtually empty. We were shown to a table near the door and till...probably used for takeaway pick ups. We asked to sit away from the door to be met with a number of reasons why this was not possible. 9 people were arriving imminently. Of the circa 25 tables all were booked at 6pm despite the booking system showing ready availability. We decided almost immediately to seek out another restaurant with better customer service and as we were walking out the door were offered a good table which had miraculously become available. Following an excellent meal at another restaurant in Bakewell we walked past Raja’s to find it largely empty. Enough said.More

We attended Rajas on a one night stay in Bakewell on our way back down from Scotland, heading for Essex. The staff were friendly and attentive and surrounding comfortable, the food was tasty and well cooked. I'd say it was ab average serving. It was...late so we didn't want too much food so only had soft drinks and a main course with rice, no starter or dessert. The Bill arrived and was £64, which we thought was a little high compared to home but as we were in a touristy area we thought the price must be the price! Although we had only had two small cokes and a large lime and soda our drinks bill came to £14! I queried this with the gentleman who came to take payment, thinking maybe someone else's drinks had been put on our bill in error? Only to be told, no its £4 each for the cokes and an eye watering £6 for the lime and soda!!! That is no alcohol, just a jot of lime cordial in fizzy water! That's more than London prices. To say we felt completely ripped off is an understatement. It would probably have been cheaper to drink lager! Over all not a bad experience but marred by blatant over pricing of soft drinks!!!More
