Recommended if you love good spice and generous portions

In the inverness area and like a curry? Get yourself to the Rajah. Friendly service, clean and tidy and great portion sizes. I had a Chicken Jalfrezi which was huge, hot and had lots of peppers, onions and nicely flavoured and well cooked chicken. Also had a lovely mushroom bhaji and a cauliflower... read more

Went there on the off chance on Saturday and got a table in about 10 minutes. I asked for hot meat puri which isn't on the menu but the chef made it for me and it was the best I'd ever had. Will definately be going back and may even start using their takeaway. Its a fair bit further than... More

Rajah is an Indian restaurant in a basement location just off the centre of Inverness. It is outstanding. Claiming to be the oldest Indian restaurant in the Highlands, Rajah seems to have had enough time to perfect some truly fantastic spice blends for what is nominally a very generic menu. Rajah is seemingly well known in the area so was... More

This restaurant is not suitable for a romantic dinner for two - too big and nosiy for that. The food however, tastes wonderful. We had papadums, two starters and two veggie curries. Way, way too much, but really delicious. The waiters were quick and polite. We loved it!

Myself and my son booked a table here on Saturday 18th May. The restaurant was mobbed but we were still seated at our allocated time of 7pm after being served with a drink in the bar area. We ordered poppadoms which were served with an excellent tray of relishes. My son ordered Chicken Kurma which he declared to be the... More

As per my title, I really couldn't fault this restaurant. The food, service and comfort in this place is a lesson for other establishments. Very much recommended.

They do say that it's very hard to get a good curry in Scotland but this place proves everybody wrong! I was staying up in Inverness with some colleagues and of course beer, boys and a curry are an absolute requirement. prices are pretty fair and the food obviously freshly prepared. I asked for a particular favourite of mine that... More

We visited the Rajah again recently and once again had a fantastic evening. The atmosphere and décor is traditional but modern at the same time and the welcome from the staff just so friendly, that you instantly feel relaxed. Once again the food was fantastic with the chicken tikka starter just superb with a delicate blend of spice but with... More

We visited this restaurant a few years ago & I was keen to return as the food was excellent & I remembered good things about it. I called several days ahead to book a table for 7.30 but was told they only had a table at 8pm, which was fine with us. However we arrived at 8 & our table... More
