Mid week curry

A group of us dined here one evening there were 12 of us.The menu is very extensive which can make the choice difficult. The food was good but not exceptional however I would eat here again. Other reviewers have said the service is slow but I think they leave a time gap between courses so you can... read more

This restaurant had been recommended by two friends, one of whom made a booking for the four of us to have dinner. Given the sheer volume of customers on a Friday night, booking a table is essential. The location appears to be on a small industrial estate but this is forgotten once you enter the restaurant. Furnishings are eclectic in... More

Have not been to the Raj for some years, far better than I recall. Enjoyed the meal pleasant staff and would return following this visit. Busy place and worth booking to ensure you can dine there.

I visited for a take away and wasn't disappointed. The service was friendly and very good and the food was quite special. It is the best in the area by far and I can't think of anything better in the region. The prices are good and the quality and variations in the menu excellent. Highly recommended.

Visited as a large group (7 adults a toddler and a Baby) for a family birthday. Food was lovely, place is decorated very nicely, they also offer a drive through for takeaways which I thought was a good idea! Haven't really got any major complaints about the place apart from that the service was quite slow. Now I don't know... More

Went to the Le Raj for a take away on Saturday, placed our order and was told it would be twenty mins to twenty five, an hour later we were still waiting. When the food was eventually ready, the popperdoms, we were told were burnt so he had put double in to compensate! I don't want more burnt popperdoms!!! No... More

Went last week with friends. We had booked a table in advance. On arrival we ordered drinks and were immediately taken to our table. Drinks arrived in seconds. Extensive menu. We chose a starter to share and 4 main dishes. All were very good Service was excellent and very well-mannered.

T.he Verdict: Upon arrival, the family and I were greeted by the welcoming staff at Le Raj. They opened the doors for us and seated us right away. The decor is right on point. Indian is the cuisine and India is where you think you're dining. Cosy private booths surround the outer restaurant with the bigger main tables situated centrally.... More

Considering this is ostensibly "one of the best Indian's in South Wales" whilst we found the quality of food to be ok, we found the spicing to be totally inadequate rendering the food bland and boring. To add insult to injury the food was cold on collection (AND 15 minutes late). After complaining to management they disagreed with our complaint... More
