“Fantastic Indian food in South Africa”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Went here twice for dinner and was not disappointed. Great food and great wine. Service can be a little slow but the food makes up for it. Plus given the current ZAR to US ratio, it's really not that expensive. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who maybe is staying at the Palazoo on in the Montecasino area.

“Brilliant service and food”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

You will never go wrong at The Raj for taste, quality and service. I eat there everytime we go to Jhb from East London. Their butter chicken and butter naan is to die for. The service is impeccable and friendly. Prices are very reasonable.

“Really Great Indian!!!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013


-good service
-poppadoms were good although spicy!!
-I liked that whatever curry you ordered, you had a choice of how spicy it was. I had a lamb Roganjosh which was really tasty!
-Naan and rice were very good, one to revisit.
-Not the lowest prices around but for Montecasino it was a good price for excellent food!!!

“Impeccable Service!”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 via mobile

I met dome friends there for dinner and food was excellent as usual but what really stood out was the incredible knowledge of our waiter. He (Chris) compared dishes, highlighting similarities and pointing out the differences. Well done!
Just one comment about the restaurant layout, the tables are incredibly small. We (4 of us) had to continually shuffle our dishes and glasses around to manage.
