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

Further to my review in October last year, I was pleased to see Wayne review on 15 January 2015, which I believe 100%! It amazes me that people still go to this dump! It seems that me and Wayne are the only ones telling the truth about this pathetic place, with tasteless food, ignorant Staff and a Manager/Owner/chef that haven't... More

I was catching up with some old friends from Bridgend and they'd insisted on going to Le Raj, saying it was unlike any other restaurant ect ect BUT I must admit I had looked up this restaurant on here and I wasn't really looking forward to it and had pre judged because of the negative comments, but then again I...

Been going to the Le Raj for the last 10 years and it never seems to dissapoint. If your serious about you curries this should definately be on the top of your list. The service is always friendly, efficient and personal at the same time they know when to leave you alone ( unlike some places). The food is out... More

This is a lovely little places, it has a lovely theme through out not like most curry houses where it is pretty plain and basic looking. They have lovely staff with friendly and fun personalities. I have been here a few times even seeing members of staff joking about with customers and causing laughter through out. Great in my eyes!... More

We have always rated this place, until tonight ! I ordered the salmon starter. When it arrived it was merely a mush of dark brown gooey stuff. After one or two mouthfuls, I couldn't eat any more as I kept munching on hard chunks of either bone or gristle. Not meaning to make a fuss I left the rest. When... More

Went one Saturday evening with my boyfriend for a date night after he had told me how good it was. I ordered some onion bhaji's and a chicken tikka korma with rice chips and a naan. The meal overall was nice, I especially enjoyed the bhaji's as I've only ever had supermarket ones and I could definitely taste the difference... More
