Little gem!

This is the greatest Indian restaurant in Bristol, considering the food, service and price. You will always get a good welcome and farewell. Me and my partner have eaten here many times and it has always been great. The bad reviews this restaurant has had I would put down to it being a small... read more

I am lucky enough to have this as my 'local' and to enjoy a good, standard fare Indian restaurant. This one doesn't set itself up to be anything other than this but delivers every time and with a smile. The restaurant is small and cosy, with good service and reliable tasty food (and they can cook lamb properly which I... More

Went for a meal with a group of friends who had told me great things about this place so I was surprised to see a small boring looking place with just a few tables, well it also has a basement with a number more spaces so was big enough to fit us in. Where this place wins all its merit... More

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.
