Really enjoyed my meal at the Raj. I ordered the Rogan Josh and it was the nicest I've ever had! My only complaint was that the portion was too big for the rice serving. Meant a lot of sauce was wasted. Very friendly staff. Looking forward to my next visit!

A Groupon deal, early on a Monday evening isn't the best time to judge, but not a lot of atmosphere. To be fair, we had access to the entire menu, with no restrictions, and started off with an excellent starter platter. After that it went downhill, with a struggle to get the mains, rice & nan to the table at... More

Nans and sides are great too, particulalry the saag aloo is my favourite. I have also been with people requesting gulten free, they have been impressed... More

Went on a Groupon Deal and starter platter was excellent with little mini bites of lamb, chicken and vegetable pakora etc. For mains I had the Madras and the good lady Rogan Josh with pilau rice and both very tasty. The side dish was Saag Aloo but they allowed us to change to Bombay Potatoes as I can't eat spinach.... More
