We ate here last weekend - long weekend in South Africa. Overall the food was good, but the service was a little slow as it has been in previous occasions. The waiter appeared to be a little nervous and unsure of himself and he went missing in action a couple of times, especially when we wanted to order more drinks.... More

This Restaurant is located in Sun international hotel . The Restaurant is in the same premises as the casino and it is made in a pretty interesting way thus creating very good ambiance. The service was good and the food was decent.

I am Indian & this was terrible food in my opinion. Firstly - we were 3adults, 3 children - 2 children aged 5 & 2 shared with their parents. We ordered 4 curries between us. The curries were bad - then on top of that they charged a 10% fee because we were more than 5people. Seriously do you count... More

To have a meal at a restaurant at Sun City is quite expensive. But if the experience is shocking on top of this, then it deserves a bad review. Keep in mind a lot of international travelers frequent Sun City. Firstly the service was below standard. Slow, unfriendly and sloppy. The wines on the wine list where not available. The... More

We had delicious meal here. The roof above us began to leak after rain and they did not hesitate to move us to another table in a very busy restaurant. The saag paneer and chicken korma were both very tasty and the naan was fresh.

The Raj is situated in the main hotel complex in Sun City. I had an amazing lamb biryani which was really tasty with more than enough lamb. My wife ordered the chicken salad and said it was only mediocre, although that may have had something to do with her spell in the casino. Overall the restaurant has improved lately and... More

My wife and I had our first Indian meal on the last night of our 13 day SA trip at The Raj. This meal was on the back of a very disappointing dinner we had the previous night. The food tasted delicious, service was very good and the ambiance nice and quiet. We really enjoyed our food at The Raj.
