Hot Curry, Cold Night

Pleasant curry house, who managed to accommodate us on a Saturday night (group of 7). The various curries were of high quality, but slightly strange there was no sauce with the chicken tikka? The peshwari naan was also really really sweet, much more than in other places I've visited. I'd go... read more

First time in Inverness, we scanned all the curry houses in town and this one we only discovered after seeing it advertised on some tourist information, this one looked nice and had some different dishes, hence was our final choice, we were not disappointed, the food was delicious and the staff very helpful, would definitely go back.

Our son celebrated his 12th birthday and what did he want to do? Go to the Rajah for lunch of course. His tastebuds must've developed somewhat over the past year because in addition to his usual chicken kurma, he expressed a liking for onion bhajis, chicken shahi and balti lamb silsila! You could have knocked me down with a feather.... More

The peshwari naan was also really really sweet, much more than in other places I've visited. I'd go back as it generally a pretty good curry house.

Nice welcome, seated quickly, Cobra on draught - all good. Veg Pakora lacked seasoning and bite. Chicken bhuna the same, almost watery in fact. Pity about the food as the ambience is very nice. Maybe just the wrong choice from the menu :-(

Another fantastic meal at the Rajah, would not go anywhere else in Inverness. Attentive staff, delicious food, and reasonably priced. I love the Rajah its just big enough to have atmosphere but not too big. I have never eaten better Indian food in Inverness that was better than the food here. Thanks for another great birthday night out for my... More

For about the last 10 years when coming to Inverness to visit friends and family, we've had a group meal here. On each visit I've always been impressed with the service and food. Thanks again for another enjoyable evening :-)

Despite good reputation and first Indian restaurant in Inverness this was disappointing. Started was warm at best and they got the order wrong Main course lacked flavour and was almost like eating a ready meal. Did not have a dessert or anything else For anyone that knows about real Indian cuisine this would not be a joyous place to visit

My wife and I went there, responding to their high rating. We both enjoyed our meal. Excellent service and setting, Very tasty food whether a lamb biryani or curried shrimp. A very strong plus was it remaining open during the dead time affecting a lot of other restaurants.
