We enjoyed great food and service here. A little more expensive than elsewhere but a great food experience in an elegant environment, food is very well presented. The biryanis were quite mild. The bhuna and Sri Lanka quite spicy/hot. The butter chicken creamy and mild. All very tasty and a great evening. Unhurried and relaxed. Thank you.

We often go there for a meal. The food and service are always excellent. A bit more expensive than others, but you get what you pay for. The kids love the sweet selection after the meal. We'll be going again.

We eat here regularly, excellent for takeaways but restaurant is better, excellent attentive staff make you feel welcome and you never wait more than a few seconds for drinks ect if you need them ,takeaway seems busier than restaurant nowadays (probably with folk trying to save cash) but highly recommend a meal at the restaurant, great food and service and reasonably priced

Days of the raj is around the corner from where we live, it's an easy drive to collect a take away and easy enough walk if we want a sit down meal. However, we've only sat in once...

...the inside is beautiful, elegant, friendly and attractive; yet it is always very quiet when we go in. On collecting our take away on Monday there was no one else in the restaurant. My partner went on Friday with a friend and there was two other groups in.

We believe this is due to specials on Sunday and Thursday (where portions are much smaller), other nights charge more but you end up with a bigger meal!

The food is always beautiful, and the menu is well explained (mild to spicy with information on dishes) I will keep going to Raj, but because of quietness will have take always more than sitting in...come on people let's make it popular again!
