popped in for a sneaky quick curry and left stuffed and totally satisfied again! Service top notch and curries were great. Try the Saag Paneer.....it's bloody lovely!

If you don't like curry but like mediocre stew eat here. If you like very mild curry with limited foreign flavour have the vindaloo. I can't believe this was recommended to me. Oh yeah totally overpriced too.

I was visiting some friends in Thanet and we had agreed on trying out the ali raj, upon entering I was welcomed by the most friendly staff who took care of me throughout the night. This was accompanied by the delightful food we received. All of these as well as a clean and refreshing atmosphere led to the perfect evening.... More

Brilliant, service was excellent and the food was lovely! I came all the way from Portsmouth with my family, we came for a party booking and had a very warm welcome from the manager and staff. I had the chicken korma and jalfrezi tasted exquisite compliments to the chef! Strongly recommend for anyone who is looking for high, quality Indian... More

The food was very bland and lacking in flavour, The spice was very weak The customer service was very poor and abrupt, Will not be using the ali raj again as there are many nicer places locally, Don't be fooled by how the restaurant looks.

I have been frequenting The Ali Raj now for best part of 20 years and have seen it grow from a small pokey stereotypical Indian in to the thriving modern place that it is today. What I can say is that the food throughout its time in Westbrook, Margate has without a doubt been consistent. Great indian indeed, great flavours,... More

Here.. again! I just love this place and we went for my mums birthday to which we all left very satisfied, stuffed and even more to take home in takeaway boxes! The value for money is incredible! As always, Rocky being front of house is so good at what he does although I do think Ali needs to get another... More
