Never Fails

Went on a Groupon Deal and food was superb. Groupon no Deal just eating in the restaurant or takeaway, this is I think one of the best Indian restaurants in Ireland let alone Belfast.

Have been to The Raj many times and have always had great food. Tasty, fresh and plenty of choice. I generally have to take leftovers home as portions are so generous and I only have a main course!

We have had both take out and dine in. So delicious! There are so many complex flavors in the curries, all different! The Marsala sauce is to die for! The best I ever had. The service is friendly, attentive, but not invasive. Highly recommend! Enjoy!

Treat yourself to the best yiu won't... More

We chose the Raj as it was near our hotel and we were not disappointed. Great curry, lovely restaurant, would recommend. I could not finish mine (shouldn't have had a starter!!) so they boxed up my leftovers to nibble later and it still tasted great some three hours after...

On a visit to family in Belfast we went to The Raj on a Saturday night with a party of 8. The place has a nice vibe and atmosphere, the staff are very welcoming and polite. The service was very prompt and we were not kept waiting for our food very long. The food was good, not the best but... More
