Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

I went there with my friends for a meal on Monday night. There was six of us all together. The interior of the restaurant was very nice and pleasant. We were welcomed by a waiter who showed us to our seats. He was very nice and helpful, because we could not decide what to have. He recommended to us very nice dishes which all of us has enjoyed. Fully recommend Naga chicken. It was delicious. Would definitely visit again.

“Excellent Indian Food”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Had a lunch yesterday(5th Aug 2014), couldn't fault it, lovely time and would recommend everyone. We were party of 4 adult and order drinks first, than we order starters and main course, great food. Only one chef so took a while to make a meal but been told in advance and we order drinks meantime. Manager also give us papadum free of cost for second time while we waiting for the main course. They close at 2pm and start again at 5pm so make sure you visit at right time otherwise you will be disappointed. All in it was a great experience

“Okay food, disappointing value and service”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

My friends and I chose 'Lake Raj' due to our intense hunger and torrential rain.

We were greeted and seated quickly, but that was the highlight of the meal.

2 meals did not arrive. the meals which did arrive weren't substantial enough to feed a baby.

Food quality was good, as I'd expect for the price. But we did leave feeling about as hungry as when we entered.

We will be trying elsewhere upon our next visit.

Again the management have reason to believe that this review by the same person(s) as below. Although this person has shown the courtersy to rate our restaurant higher than 1 star and has given us 3 star rating and states our food was of good quality, we feel we have to inform our knowledgeable future customers of the discrepencies with this review.

The customer mentions he and his friends has a 'intense hunger' then complains about the size of the portions not being 'substantial to feed a baby' , we apologise that our portions were not enough to satisfy his or his friends 'intense hunger', and feel if he was very hungry he should have ordered more food than he or his friends did.

we categorically refute these false and misleading information that 2 of his meals did not arrive. if this was the case we would expect him or any customer to make a complaint during or at the end of the meal (which this customer did not). furthermore i would very much doubt any customer would pay for two meals which did not arrive. this leads the management to come to the conclusion this review is not a true account of the situation or the customers actual experience.

“Not good”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Visited this lake raj on my recent visit to the wonderful Bowness.
Well... Me being a huge curry lover and a big visiter to many curry places around the country I firmly place lake raj at the very bottom of my massive list.
Tasteless and very small portions. Disappointed as it was recommended by a friend and I certainly will not visit again on my many visits up to bowness.

“Fabulous Food Excellent Service”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We held our football presentation at Lake Raj and the welcome was warm and friendly and the staff were very attentive. All the parents and children enjoyed the delicious food which was well presented and plentiful. The children especially enjoyed the starters trying all the new and wonderful dips and dishes. Staff were on hand to chat to us all and we were encouraged to take our time and enjoy the food. The restaurant was lovely and clean and I would highly recommend it to anyone who visits Bowness. You will not get a better welcome. Thanks Raj.
