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.

I visited here with friends on a Wednesday and it was busy. That says a lot. It was the usual good service and attention. We settled for a bottle of the house white and red and we all said very drinkable. One of our party was on a dairy free diet and the staff were knowledgable and advised against the chicken tikka and recommend the plain chicken instead. A very tasty meal followed by 4 coffees (good) On departure they brought our coats and escorted us to the door and held the door open for us (nice touch)

Just had a stonking curry in the Raja, best one in years. Lamb (Methil gosht) was plentiful and tender, stuffed Paratha was lovely and crispy and rice, bombay aloo and chicken Vindaloo sublime. Portion sizes were good and left me feeling replete. Lovely. Don't like restaurants that add discretionary servic charges, but we spotted it and actually left above the 10% which I would have done anywhere that serves food this good

First visit to this unassuming restaurant. I can't fault it, the service was spot on and every dish left me wanting more and I'm not talking about portion size. I recommend this place and will be returning soon I hope.

Hurrah !. After complaints about over charging, the owner seems to have reduced his prices - slightly. Side dishes are still too high, but any reduction in cost is to be welcomed. The food is consistently good, and the staff are lovely, but there is still scope for better value. If prices were dropped a little further I would have no hesitation in recommending the Raja as the best curry restaurant in ther area. However at a time when consumers have less money in their pocket, value is king. Not sure the Raja has got there just yet.

We order takeaways from here 2 or 3 times a month and love it. It is the best Indian Restaurant for miles. On special occasions we also eat in the restaurant and the food is even better. The service is both friendly and efficient, without being too intrusive. Our favourites are the Tandoori Chicken, and the Chicken Tikka. The Bombay Potato is delicious, and we also love the Chicken Tikka Masala. I have had the Butter Chicken, and it did not smell disgusting at all (as in one review). Thank you to all the staff for keeping open during COVID. Knebworth would not be the same without you!

Went here with the family yesterday. Food was absolutely delicious, flavoursome and fresh. Everyone was happy with their meals. I no longer live locally, but this was the best Indian meal I have had in years! Service was also excellent. Friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and cannot fault it in any way. Not sure why I haven’t placed a review before! The staff are friendly, attentive and nothing is too much trouble, the food is second to none. The waiter Naz is very much a people person, one of the dishes I thought I might have was medium but as my digestion isn’t very good with spicy food he requested it was mild for me in the kitchen. I do not know anywhere else where you would get such a personal service. He always remembers what my husband likes and will always advise if we are not sure on dishes etcetera. Thank you to all the staff especially Naz.

We enjoyed our evening at the Raja. The food was excellent particularly the Persian style biriyani. Service in a very busy restaurant is excellent. One small criticism is I prefer a blush rose wine. The dark rose wine they serve is sweet. I think they'd sell loads of the more popular light blush if they sold it which is an ideal wine for Asian food. Everything you eat is of a very good quality.

Been using this place for years and until now it’s been our go to take away. However, tonight’s meal left us stunned as to how bad it was. We had a tandoori platter starter that lacked taste and substance and a chicken tikka masala that was so bland and tasteless with dry chicken pieces. Won’t be using them again.

Whilst we arrived later than expected, the waiter was kind enough to let us eat in, as we really didn’t want a takeaway and had travelled quite far to get to the restaurant. Once seated, the service was prompt and friendly. The special mixed grill was absolutely outstanding, with high quality ingredients. The waiter was quick when we needed him but didn’t hassle us. The food is some of the best Indian food you can find in Hertfordshire.

Lived in the village over a year but this was our first time after hearing amazing things. We booked during eat out to help out and couldn’t fault the food or the service. We had one starter and a main to share with poppadoms and naan and we left absolutely stuffed! Can’t wait to come back and try more dishes soon!

Total rip off on drinks! Charged 4.95 for a glass of lime & soda. Should be max of 1.20. Food was ok but not much flavour / bit bland. Also waiter snatched bill off me when I had paid as he could see me querying what was on there. Took it back to bar to give me a copy then conveniently lost it!! Avoid having drinks in here as per other reviews as total rip off!!!

Five of us ex-Gateway lads got together to make the best of lockdown. The main reunion is June 2022, postponed for 2 years, BUT there's nothing wrong with having a practice or two. Organiser Will put us up at his nice house after plying us with local beer. Selections ranged from Tony's vindaloo to Andy's korma. I started with Sheek kebab and risked the main of Lamb Tawa with pillau rice - new for me. YES, NEW for the cautious eater Will had some prawn thing and I can't remember what other Tony had. I also had a chapati which was very delicate. If you get the basics right it's a very good indicator. Between the 5 of us we did a full range and everyone enjoyed it.

This is now a very expensive restaurant. It used to be wonderful value...but no longer. There are other better value places to eat nearby. The food is still good. The staff are still wonderful, but the owner has jacked up the price of everything to unreasonable levels.

After driving past this restaurant many times we finally found the time to go for a meal with another couple of friends. It’s a lot bigger inside than expected. The staff were so welcoming and were humerus throughout the night. Very attentive. The food was really nice and we liked it the we were asked if we were ready for our next course. We will definitely be back
