Lovely Grub! Nice place! Service quite slow.

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... read 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

It was a wet miserable Monday evening and after a long day in work, I knew just what I needed! My mistress: Six poppadum and mint sauce. I knew just the place. Le Raj - Quality Indian Cuisine - using the highest quality fresh products, in beautiful surroundings in Cornelly near Porthcawl in South Wales. So there I was, foot... More

This has to be one of the best Indian Restaurants in South Wales. The atmosphere, food and service are second to none. I have dined in this restaurant many many times and I cannot find a fault.

Rare occasion that we do come here is a real treat - food is tasteful and presented v.well !! I can't help but comment on the negative comments below, in particular of jackarmy, you only ever have negative comments to make about restaurants in the Porthcawl area but why do you keep going back?

It's not quite in Bridgend but is certainly worth the drive out. Lovely big tables authentic decor and friendly staff await. The butter chicken is dynamite and one of the best I've ever had. We are yet to try the buffet on the weekend but hoping to visit soon. Portions are good and service is the same. If you're wondering... More
