We had a group of about 16, and they did well to serve everything at the same time for each course. Staff were very attentive, couldn't complain. Only downside, and it's down to personal taste, was that for me the main course I had wasn't as good as I thought and was a bit strong on food colouring. Think it... More

We looked for an indian restaurant and did not like to eat at a take-away. Already at the entrance we got a strange feeling. The restaurant is in the basement and five people grabbed after our jackets and bags before even saying hello. Before we got the chance to have a look on the menu the waitress decided which starter... More

We were recommended to go here by the owner of our Guest House. We usually dine at a different Indian in Inverness, which we were very happy with, but he insisted this one was better. I don't agree, however the food was very good, and the service was decent enough. What I really didn't like was dining in a basement... More

Came here at the weekend the food was amazing!! Slightly hotter than other Indians I've tried but still very good, the service on the other hand wasn't that great we had to ask for poppadoms never got offered them, then the dirty plates then from that course stayed on our tables until before our main when we asked for them...

Decided to try here during a visit to Inverness after it being recommended by several locals. Can honestly say this was one of the best Indian restaurants we have ever been to. Would give it 10/10! Service excellent, staff friendly and very attentive, nice atmosphere, and best of all delicious food! Will definately be back during our next break. A... More

You can tell whether an Indian restaurant is worth a visit-the local Indians eat there! We had a super meal for a very reasonable price.

My sister and I had an enjoyable meal at the Rajah. We had a Somosa (meat) for starters. My sister had the Lamb Massallah (marinated in spices and herbs cooked in a special sauce with cream & yogurt) and I had the excellent Chef Special (Chicken, meat, and prawn) cooked in medium spicy sauce. We also had cheese Naan and... More

Called in for a late Saturday lunch and once again was really impressed. Well seasoned tasty dishes, and not too long to wait between courses. Prices are still reasonable and staff are still as helpful as ever. Well done once again to the team at the Rajah.

Excellent food (large portions) and a good atmosphere. Well worth a visit. The restaurant is underground but still had a good ambience.
