The November meeting of our Thinkers and Scholars group took place in this very friendly neighbourhood restaurant that you really should visit if in the area. Parking is difficult so prepare for a brisk walk to work up an appetite. We started across the spectrum with onion bhaji's (looking really freshly cooked) and prawn puree's. It's a bring your own...

Went to the Bristol Raj again last night and had a superb meal. Went on a voucher and voucher was purchased prior to being diagnosed coeliac. Phoned first to ask if a coeliac menu was available and was assured that almost all their foods were acceptable except poppadoms,naan and breaded items. This was the case and after a warm welcome...

I recently visited the Bristol Raj to use a Groupon voucher that i had purchased. 4 Meals for £32. What a bargain! Firstly unlike most of theses vouchers,you didn't have to choose between rice or naan. We all got a starter,main,rice and shared a naan between two people.You could choose from their main menu whatever you liked the only limitations... More

love this curry house, with a welcome pre-theatre menu right next to the Bristol Old Vic. Food is fresh and tasty and the service is excellent too. Well worth a visit.

We were here for a birthday dinner. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was quite good, although we did question if some of the meals brought to us were what we'd ordered. We had poppadoms and a main each (and miscellaneous sides and soft drinks) and the price was less than £15 per head. The venue is BYO... More

Food was ok - not greasy or horrible - but slightly underwhelming. Main issue was that it took double the time estimated on order to arrive (80 mins instead of 40).
