Great Indian Food

The food was great the service started off well but as the night progressed it started to get fairly bad. It seems that we were fortunate to just be able to walk up to the restaurant and after a few minutes get a table. The Raj appears to be a very popular restaurant in Sun CIty and if you're in... read more

Sorry but what a dissapointment! No problem to pay for food but really way to expensive for what you get, not even a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Won't be back even if it was the only restaurant in Sun City!

I had the pleasure of dining at The Raj Restaurant. The restaurant served authentic eastern cusine. Being vegetarian there was a huge array to choose from. The meals are really quite large and can easily be shared . Waiting time was also minimal and the food was at a fair price.

We had very good Indian food at Raj with very good service. Great chicken tikka marseala. The food came quickly which is good for the kids. Not a great stay in Sun City overall, but the Raj was a bright spot we enjoyed.

Visited here while staying at sun city, the food was excellent, the staff were very good and the price was very reasonable. My one fault was the staff cleared plate while other guest were still eating, this maybe custom in South Africa but not in UK

Tasty and well priced Indian next to the casino at Sun City. I have marked as mid price as I think it is by S African standards but is cheap by Australian ones. The staff were friendly and the food a welcome change from the meat heavy fare (which is delicious but we just needed a change). Service was efficient... More
