Service was very bad from reception to waiter. The food wasn't inedible nevertheless I could only stomach half a chop. It lacked in flavour and seasoning. Plus there was no salt and pepper on the table. However the coke I had with my meal was fantastic. Needless to say; not a chance of me coming back.

We eat at The Raj in Sandton quite often and this outlet is every bit as good. The restaurant has had a good makeover as part of the Sun City upgrades and its new location has the added benefit of a lovely patio area. The food is great and I'm always happy to see Indian folks choosing to eat at... More

I wish i could give this place zero stars for food. We ordered 'spicy' food as we are Indians and thought we could tolerate heat. It was SO SPICY that we had to leave the entire serve untouched. The wait staff noticed we hadn't eaten ANYTHING and when we told him it was too spicy his response was "hot here... More

Nothing special, but then again nothing to dislike either. If you are looking for basic Indian fare at good value for money then you won't be disappointed. Normally prefer to drink Cobra or Kingfisher with an Indian meal, but not available. Fortunately in SA you can always rely on the Pinotage.

The food presentation was lovely and the meal was delicious. The service was good and the waiter made my mum feel really special for her birthday.

Food was good and very tasty with wide menu selection. Service was poor even though the restaurant was pretty empty. Restaurant looks tired and decor needs a revamp.

Not what we expected, not worth using your money on, waiter was slow. The food was not at all up to standard and our table was given away even though we had booked
