The DOTR has an early bird special which is good value for money. It also has a banquet special for an extra couple of quid which is better value with more choice. The four if us had a variety of meals and all were lovely (I had to taste theirs for review purposes!). I had a madras (my usual but... More

Value for money. Fantastic food. Lovely clean setting with nice relaxed & fantastic service. Been a lot as it's our local & we love it. Only down side a bit to much sauce sometimes. But with lots of rice & nan bread to mop it up it's fine. For a belly busting meal - try the 3/4 cause mmmmmmmmmmm In... More

We enjoyed great food and service here. A little more expensive than elsewhere but a great food experience in an elegant environment, food is very well presented. The biryanis were quite mild. The bhuna and Sri Lanka quite spicy/hot. The butter chicken creamy and mild. All very tasty and a great evening. Unhurried and relaxed. Thank you.

We often go there for a meal. The food and service are always excellent. A bit more expensive than others, but you get what you pay for. The kids love the sweet selection after the meal. We'll be going again.

Days of the raj is around the corner from where we live, it's an easy drive to collect a take away and easy enough walk if we want a sit down meal. However, we've only sat in once... ...the inside is beautiful, elegant, friendly and attractive; yet it is always very quiet when we go in. On collecting our take... More

Last time i visited was several years ago - there was a pianist and the restaurant was full. The restaurant is in a poor location, but the interior is very nice. This time there were only three tables in use. The food was OK, but the nan bread and rice portions were small. The lamb rogan josh was good, but... More

I have no idea what those Groupon reviewers are complaining about. maybe they're the large groups you get in now and again who sit there boozing and shouting at each other all night. No wonder the waiters can't be bothered with them. I live near this restaurant and I've never had a bad meal in dozens of visits. Very clean,... More
