Over 30 years of great food.

My wife and I have been eating at Raja's for over 30 years now and still enjoy our visits. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food, as always, is very good. Over the years we have celebrated many birthdays and anniversary's here. Our children both live in London now and when they eat at... read more

Worst indian food ever. I am Indian, ate here for the first time. Food was tasteless and full of colouring. It was also expensive compared to other Indian restaurants. portions were small. The food also brought me out in spots which I can only imagine must have been the colouring. This certainly is not what Indian food should taste like.... More

Visited this restaurant twice in a row (really out of locational convenience) whilst working in the area firstly with a large group and then just three of us and although satisfactory I don’t understand the ratings this place has acquired. The food was very average with quite small portions compared to many Indian restaurants. Saying this the staff were obliging... More

I have reviewed this restaurant a few times now but that's because myself and my family just love the food and service that we always receive. We are always greeted with a warm, friendly welcome. The food is always top notch. Last night I had the karai paneer curry which was delicious. Full of paneer and full of flavour. Delicious!!... More

We went to Rajas again last night. Great meal and service as always. We had our usual , onion baja, chicken tika byriana, desi chicken, navratunkorma. I also tried the fish pakora as a starter, huge portion and very good indeed. Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks to all Jan & Howard

Been impressed previously with this place. So, special trip all the way over from Pontefract. Very disappointed. Chicken tikka was nice chicken but not very spicy - even our 8 year old wasn't very impressed this time. My chicken liver starter I was expecting to be dry but came in a sauce and was nothing like as good as before.... More
