Quite possibly the most frustrating take away I have ever ordered! It took 1 hour and 50 mins to arrive which is just unacceptable for a take away service. I received no call to say there was a huge delay so I called after 1 hour to see what was going on and the woman on the phone didn't seem... More

Second visit in 3 weeks. Nothing bad but nothing good either. Decent portions but no great distinction in flavours as we shared main courses.Staff friendly and attentive.Quite pricey, even for Northern Ireland.

Went on a Living social deal. Starter platter wasn't as tasty as it looked but our main courses were great - one lamb and one prawn dish (with plenty of prawns) Good service, good sized portions, and our curries were delicious.

The Raj was recommended to me by someone whose opinion I respect. Maybe we got them on a bad night but it failed to live up to that recommendation. The starter platter was mostly good but the vegetable samosas were possibly the worst I have ever had. Our main courses were all quite good but my Rozalla tasted as though... More

Shared a takeaway here and enjoyed. Had the rogan josh, it was lovely, slightly spicier than the one I usually get but I prefer it like that, I normally go to one up the road and enjoyed it but thought I'd give this one a go. I'll be back.

Went recently for the first time and was a little wary because of some of the reviews I have read here. We found it very enjoyable overall, the service was fine and the food very good. It had a reasonable atmosphere and was very good value. We will not hesitate to go back again.

Since this restaurant changed hands a few years ago it has become hit and miss. It remains predominantly empty most of the week except for Christmas and when their discount vouchers are reaching their expiry date. The reason... probably the welcome which varies between being tolerated by the host to being told to sit and wait for one of the... More
