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

After a bad experience at Squires, we decided on The Raj the following night. What a difference. The waiter Collen was friendly, attentive and knowledgable. The meal was lovely, the service fantastic. We left Collen a huge tip as he was brilliant throughout. Visit The Raj, you won't be disappointed.

The food was very delicious and vey authentic! Alll portion sizes were good and medium spicy was just right for the taste of food. Service was a little bit slow but was okay as we were busy chatting. Outdoor seating was lovely especially on the warm night we were having.
