The food is always superb, and the staff are always friendly and professional. Dishes consistently good and always of great quality. Great Sunday buffet, not a self service one but brought fresh to your table. Eat as much as you like, no quibbles. Try this restaurant if you enjoy a good Indian meal.

Our first visit on Saturday evening and we will definitely be going back. A warm friendly greeting when we arrived and seated straight away, even though we hadn't booked. Food was delicious in fact my 13 year old son said it was the best meal he had ever had! We all love Indian cuisine but had become a little bored... More

The restaurant has filthy carpets, the upstairs is run down and there is dirt on the walls. The food came out below par, the lemonade was flat and the service was slow and poor. The owner is lovely, however. Wish you all the best there - but changes need to be made before I visit again.

We have visited Raj Lodge on many occasions and food is always good and not too overpriced! Last few times we have been it has been rather empty which has made the atmosphere a bit dry! The young manager is always welcoming and helpful, he helped my 15 yr old son choose a dish! Unfortunately when he isn't around the... More

The Raj is hit and miss to me, we have had some good meals here and some not so good! The buffet on a Sunday has lovely starters but the mains are pretty non descript. Reasonably priced meals though.

Another good night, 2 for £10 with exceptional service. We don't even look at the menu. We just ask the waiters for their choice, and just not to hot. They just cook something different everytime, and tell us what they've decided for us. A big bonus is they do a Sancerre Rose.
