The food was very good and well cooked.what did seem strange was the slow service on a quiet night. The two girls just where not interested.

Went without booking on a Tuesdays evening and had the set meal for two. Food was hot, flavoursome and the portion sizes were good. The popadoms and starters were also fresh and very good. Would definitely recommend the place.......

Have been here a number of times and always been good. Went on Saturday night and the service wasn't good at all. Was about half an hour after we arrived until our order was taken and we were sat right by the bar so not as if we were out of sight. Had to ask for everything twice-when we finally... More

Visited on recommendation. Staff appeared untrained and customers walking out due to long wait for food. Happily things settled down, food excellent set menu for 4 and service was acceptable although some training required.

Not really sure what is going on here. Read the reviews before we came and nearly didn't because of the bad reviews. I am so glad that my gut feeling overruled my head. We couldn't fault the place at all. We eat out a lot and always visit an Indian restaurant wherever we go in the country, including all the... More

We visited the Raj earlier in the year & despite mixed reports about the place, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality & flavour of the meal at the time........ Oh how I wish I could have said the same for the takeaway meal we picked up this evening.... Every single thing we ordered had a taste & texture that... More

Ate here a few weeks back and the starter of mixed kebab was dry. Staff seem uninterested. Main was ok but let down by the starters and staff. No atmosphere will try somewhere else next time unless it improves

Fancied an Indian meal on the last evening of our holiday. Five courses for under £10. Popadum, starter, main course, rice or naan, then tea or coffee. Huge choice of dishes. We had onion bahjis and veg samosas. Then chicken passanda and chicken tikka masala. All delicious . Good choice of drinks. Good service.

Delicious Indian food with plenty of choice for all, my kids love eating here as they love getting lots of different sides instead of a main meal.

Thank Jo R
