Arrived at 8:20 and our order arrived at 9:25. We were a table of 3 and ordered 5 dishes. Apart from the naan bread, the food was poor, lacking any depth of flavour. I've a cast iron stomach, but my guts objected to what I had eaten. The restaurant has entrance level tables as well as tables in the basement.... More

The bristol raj is a curry house that is very close to my heart and i've eaten there numerous times. However this is mainly due to its close proximity to my house and its excellent value. Unfortunately I find that the curries are mostly too gloopy and ladened with sauce. But the staff are really friendly and it will cure... More

Good starters - my wife's prawn dish was massive and packed with tasty prawns. Main courses - lots of flavours, big chunks of tender chicken, sensibly spicy. Very generous portions. Convenient to be able to bring my own, favourite low-alcohol beer, as I was driving home. Gentle, mostly Indian, background music, attentive but not oppressive service. Parking sometimes tricky to...

My wife and I visited last Saturday using a voucher. This is the second time we have visited since I was diagnosed coeliac and the staff recognised me as such on entry even though it is a few months since ur last visit. The meal was once again really lovely and the staff excellent. I echo my last report and... More

The staff were excellent and attentive and the food was first class. Everything was well spiced so you could taste the individual flavours and the lime pickle was a highlight! You can bring you own which is a plus. It is difficult to find a Indian restaurant which stands out among-st the others however I will certainly be going again.

Had Prawn Madras, a very poor meal, with very runny sauce ! Would not try this restaurant again. Visited during a quiet time, early Saturday evening

We have been lucky enough to eat here twice recently, I have to say it is fantastic, the flavours are absolutely amazing. The Golda Chingri Mirch Baja is probably the best curry i have had. Cant wait to go back again! The service is excellent, very friendly and nothing too much trouble :)
