servers really pleasant and attentive. Food not great. Ordered poppadoms and was served Papads. Onion bhajis very soggy. When it came to main course's if you closed your eyes the 3 dishes all tasted the same! Naan bread very heavy.

I walked into Raja's to see one of the staff arguing with a customer over onions, after listening a while I thought fair play to the staff the guy ordering was an idiot. I then placed my order, I asked for a non spicy chicken wrap to which I was told 'no problem' then listened as the guy who took... More

The attentive staff come a very close second to the excellent food. Much better than your average Indian. Definitely need to put this one on your list to visit,

Popped in for a takeaway after a long drive. Got home to find that we'd been given plain rice instead of the pilau we'd paid for, and only then remembered the same thing happened last time months ago. It's such a shame to be such cheapskates when the rest of the meal was gorgeously delicious. We won't be forgetting that... More

We decided on this restaurant after reading the trip advisor reviews. We came early on Saturday night and parked easily up the side street. First impressions on entering were that it was very basic and small and missing a bit of background music. Nevertheless, it was really clean with nice cotton table linen. The service was great - we never... More

Dropped in totally by random off the back of a trip advisor. Tasty, quick and not expensive. If you are in the area, a must to try!
