Was undecided between this highly rated Indian restaurant and the other on the same street, both were 4 stars on Trip Advisor. We decided on The Dilraj mainly because they have a 5 star rated hygiene rating displayed on their door whilst the other one did not display their rating. I later found them on the Gov website and they... More

The DR may be one of the better Indian restaurants in Dursley but our recent takeaway was another letdown. Both ordered the garlic chilli chicken - one vindalo hot, the other phal hot. Neither were very chill hot and it was almost impossible to tell them apart. A Phal curry is supposed to be one of the hottest curries available... More

Two wonderful meals during our stay nearby. Well decorated room, white table cloths, etc. Very friendly staff. The chutneys and pappadum beforehand were first rate. Everything comes from the kitchen very hot (temperature.) Be aware the Chicken Madras was magnificent but it is sweat-inducing. Street parking usually available.

My husband and I love Indian food. In our travels we have been conned a couple of times by reviews of Indian restaurants: case in point the Spice Room at Moreton in the Marsh. The Dil Raj was as billed- a really good restaurant. It was our first night of a 3-week trip and my Balti and my husband's curry... More

Take away with an outlandish amount of sugar in it. Seaweed not really edible, just crusted in sugar. Disappointing.

Dear Guest, Are you sure about the Restaurant you are writing about? As we don't use seaweed in any of our curry and nothing we sell is sugar coated. (www.dilraj.co/takeaway) Anyway, thank you very much for your review and I would invite you to contact me personally at 07983258017, to discuss this further. (email is shajibjahid@gmail.com).

We had just arrived in the area and decided to order in Indian food. The Dilraj had great reviews so we thought this would be worth a try. How wrong can you be. I ordered the mixed Tandori. Now Tandori is cooked at high temperature in a Tandori. It is a dry food. Not this one. I opened the take... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the Review. We have completed some internal checkings and find out that you placed an order of Mix Tandoori Mosala, which a sauce based mild curry (mix of chicken, lamb & prawn). Again, from your review it is clear that you wanted "Dry" Mixed Tandoori though (something is lost in the translation). From my experience... More
