As locals, we used to eat here and have take-away meals fairly regularly because the food was far better than anywhere else for miles: fresh ingredients, carefully prepared by a really good chef. They are either now being complacent, relying on their past reputation or there has been a more fundamental change within; not for the better!
The once friendly, sincere and excellent service is changed too. It is now rather patronising and disingenuous.
Recently, I tried to get lunch at 1.00pm with my son and the staff were sitting at a table. When I asked for lunch I was told it was over, that they couldn't help. That was the last straw...
We love good Indian food but sadly will not be coming here again.

Three of us dined here on a Tuesday. The place was busy because Tuesdays are banquet nights. That means a complete dining experience (any starter, main meal, rice or Indian bread and coffee) cost only £9.95 per person. We thoroughly enjoyed our food which consisted of starters (mixed platter, onion bhaji and vegetable samosas) and mains (murgh tikka, murgh chilli massala and methi lamb. The sides were keema rice, peshwari naan and kulcha naan. Every single item was perfectly cooked and delicious. Thouroughly recommended.

Cafe le Raj was, a few years ago without question one of the best Indian restaurants in Oxfordshire with consistently delicious, freshly cooked food. It is now no better than any other, distinctly average, bland and uninteresting. Even the old warm welcome has changed, I really HATE being called "Boss."
Sadly I cannot recommend this restaurant any more...

Cafe Le Raj manages to serve consistently high quality food every time we visit. They don't disappoint with the quality of the ingredients or the quality of the cooking, resulting in a very tasty and enjoyable experience.

The premises are spotlessly clean and the service both professional and attentive.

The only issue is the appearance from the outside on a busy road. Don't be put off by how it looks from the road. It does not reflect the interior or the food. Highly recommended.
