“Best delivery in Leicester - yum!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

These days we always have Gourmet Raj delivery, as every other delivery we've had has just not been as delicious! I strongly recommend the Chicken Tawa & the mushroom bhaji. Mike loves the Chicken Ghandi's Revenge (too hot for me!). We have a few side dishes & it is enough for another meal that we freeze & enjoy another day. All tastes really fresh & light. Lots of fresh herbs! Delish!!

“Tasty food, but up to hour to have cold poppadoms delivered”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Disagree with review that said food bland. Personally I have ordered from Gourmet Raj quite often and I think the food (and the chef) clearly very good. That said I just had an inedible and raw onion bhaji from Gourmet Raj - hopefully not a different chef, just a moment's lack of concentration.
So the food is very good. Unfortunately the delivery is hugely slow. The preparation time is quick - 15 minutes for a collection. But living 5 minutes away I am asked to wait up to an hour for delivery. Presumably what they do is wait until they have a full up van and then send out 10 orders at once. Which means that the poppadoms are cold and the nan bread has cooled to the texture of cardboard.
If I was their chef this would annoy me. Preparing good food, but then a terrible delivery service. One hour is too slow to be really acceptable.

“Bland tasteless food”
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

I expected much more from gourmet raj. Unfortunately did not deliver. Received food well packed than many other takeaways, as far as taste goes, didn't tickle my taste buds. Expensive takeaway, portions far from generous
