Sunday buffet bargain

Went for the Sunday buffet only £6.95 each. Not the biggest of selections and mostly all mild to medium curries. All very tasty. Would be good if they could add a spicy/hot option. Tandoori Chicken wings by far the best in the buffet. Service was good and friendly. Would go again and even more if... read more

We visited here recently whilst staying in watford... wow the food is outstanding and one of the nicest Indians I have been to. The restaurant is small and does fill up quickly and the tables are quite close to each other. The atmosphere was great and would definitely return if ever in the area again.

A friendly and quite busy restaurant, the portions were good and the quality fine, but though we ordered several mains and sides , the general feeling was that the sauces used to make the dishes lacked variety and different taste experiences. Good service and range of drinks, a large choice on the menu.

Amazing food and service! Moved to the area a few weeks ago and thought I'll give it a try with a few of my local friends. I can say hand on heart it was simply one of the best curry houses I've been to! Will definitely be visiting again.

Very good food, attentive service and with some interesting variations to a standard Indian menu offering. The green mussalla curry is well worth trying. This restaurant is a gem in what is a relatively 'off the beaten track' location in Watford. The fact that it's often busy even early in the week tells its own story. Recommended.

I've tried quite a lot of curries around Watford but none are as good as Raj Garden! The atmosphere is always good. The staff are always attentive and welcoming. The food is always brilliant! I haven't had a bad meal there! Highly recommend it!!

Visited raj garden for a meal The food was really good from the starters to the main course. Only thing that was disappointed was service we got, it took ages for the food to be delivered.

We had not been to the Raj Garden for a few years, so thought it was time to go back. OK, it was a busy night, both sides of the restaurant were about 75% full. We had booked a large party and the table was ready for us when we arrived. Drinks order taken, poppadum’s ordered, seemed ages before anything... More

One of the best curries I have had, food was of a high quality and the portion sizes were good. Would recommend this place for a good affordable curry.
