Love it :) I spend a lot of time at Sun City for work so The Raj offers the perfect meal to the end off a hectic day. The Bunny Chow at the Raj in the Entertainment centre is especially delicious!

This was a good experience. The food was good, service was very good, ambience was pleasant. We visited it when it was drizzling so liked it more there.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food at Raj, I am a lover of Indian food. The prawn dishes were particularly tasty and the aloo paratha was delicious. The chickpea dish (channa dal, I think) was lovely. The waiters were friendly and on the ball. As a family, we had a very enjoyable meal. We were seated outside too with a lovely view.

Got the butter chicken, was excellent. Avoid the prawn dishes they are over cooked. Great service. Dessert was a dream. Service was excellent. Must reserve a table a day before.

Enjoyed a great meal last night at The Raj, Sun City. Definitely recommend a visit if time allows. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I had lamb samosas and a lamb bhuna with garlic naan. All as good if not better than I've had anywhere in the world. Reasonable prices for both good and drink. Around... More
