This was my first visit to Ancient Raj. The staff gave an instant welcome, and there was a comfortable and warm atmosphere. Service was efficient and friendly. The food was delicious and I could not place faults with the food nor the staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would eat here again

I have been to the Ancient Raj several times and always enjoy my meal. The food is excellent, the service good, the waiters friendly and helpful and the prices reasonable. True, it is often not packed with other diners, but that is a plus in my book. The banquet night on a Wednesday is exceptionally good value.

I went in on a Monday night quite early, was the first one in. Had a pretty good curry off the specials menu. Big tip is take a Taste card, 50% off all food. They brought out the wrong naan but they knew in advance and gave me a free one as a great gesture. Good service!

Well we have eaten half a dozen times at The Ancient Raj and I must say that the food is consistently outstanding and the service is great. We had the King Prawn Roshney and the Lamb Tapeli Gosht as main meals and they were both outstanding, simply delicious. Every time we eat here we say they have the best Indian... More

This was our first visit in about 3 years and it obviously has new owners. The service was good but the food let them down. All 3 side dishes were only lukewarm and one didnt even look fresh. After dinner brandy coffees were cold as was my cup of coffee. Prices have risen but frankly it wasnt worth what we... More

I would recommend the tandoori dishes which were delicious and served in sizzling dishes. Good choice of nan and a great choice of cooked dishes.
