When I proposed to my wife in Stratford last year, we celebrated by having dinner at Raja's. When we got married this year, we spent part of our honeymoon in Stratford. So it was only fitting that we returned to Raja's. We love Indian cuisine and were not disappointed either time! The food was delicious and perfectly spiced. The portions... More

We have been visiting Stratford annually for more than 20 years. Raja is our favorite restaurant in town. The food is outstanding as is he service. We have never been disappointed. Prices are reasonable, and the selection from mild to spicy is complete.

Every visit to Stratford begins at the Raja. We are welcomed as old friends and always enjoy outstanding Indian cuisine. Service is great, food is wonderfully flavorful, and the entire evening starts our vacation perfectly. This year we also had the opportunity to participate in the first wine tasting dinner, which was another amazing dining experience. So many wonderful flavors!... More

I had the Chicken Madras which was a lot less spicy than I would have expected but it was tasteful, next time I would just switch to the Vindaloo. My wife has the Tikka Masala which was very good. Upon paying the bill and just sitting back to drink the last drop of wine, I noticed my Wife has been... More

We decided to go here for one of our meals in Stratford. I had seen it recommended on Lonely Planet, and a friend recommended it too. We're from Toronto and I usually ask for mild (which is still a bit spicy). Mild in this restaurant = no spices. Don't get me wrong, it was still tasty, but far too mild... More

Traveling on business - talking to a local and mentioned that I was headed to dinner at 'xyz' restaurant. He suggested instead that I go to Raja's, that I would enjoy much more. Boy am I glad... the food was great, and the wait staff were attentive. I eat Indian in my home-town, and sometimes when I'm traveling, but not... More

On a recent trip to the Stratford Festival, we had our dinner at the Raja restaurant. It was disappointing. The food was underwhelming. We had samosas. The samosas were huge and the pastry was undercooked. They came before the tray of condiments. My sister had the lamb biryani which was tasteless. My vegetarian entree was quite greasy, although probably the... More

Comfortable restaurant, much better decor than you typically find in Indian restaurants. Nice wine and drink list. Papadum, appetizers and rice were good, but the main courses lacked flavor. A bit more salt might have helped, but there was none to be had. The reviewer from the UK probably characterized the problem best by noting the lack of pungent spices,... More

Went to the Raja on a Monday evening to try some Indian cuisine. The four of us know nothing about Indian food, so we can't vouch for its authenticity. We opted for the dinner for four, with its varied courses and offerings, and cannot say that we were disappointed. I couldn't name any of the offerings, but all were unique,... More

The first time I went there, I was excited as we are from India and thought ..wow Indian food and honestly , we went in with our expectations a tad higher. The ambiance was good, and the place seemed to be professionally run. But, thats just about it.. the food which was publicized as authentic Indian, was hardly so.. Anyway,... More
