Only ordered a takeaway with work mates, prawn jalfrazi which was amazing. A little hotter than I was expecting, which was good. Friendly staff, will definitely be repeating the experience. Both my work mates enjoyed their food also.

We have been to the Raj at least 4 or 5 times and every time it has been fantastic. The food has always been delicious and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. If you want a restaurant with an authentic Indian feel (and not something that feels "commercialised") then definitely try the Raj.

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!

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...
