We have been going to this restaurant for a good few years for eating in and for take away. The owners and waiters have always been helpful and courteous. The food is excellent and well priced. I would not hesitate to recommending this restaurant to anyone.

I have lived in Margate for most of my life and I must say The Ali Raj is my favourite Indian in the area. The food is always to a very high quality and the portions are of very good size. I have had both take away and eat in service and both have been perfect. The Chicken Korma is... More

I had a birthday party myself with 20 other people at the Ali Raj. I found the food and service great, the deal of £10.95 per person was great value for money. All of my guests are very happy with their service and food as well, I would recommend parties here.

Been here before with friend so accepted an invite for a birthday meal. The waiter for our table had no manners at all and spoke to us rudely. We waited nearly 2hours for any food and when it arrived it was very poor. Over salted, tasteless and incorrect items being served. The billing was in chaos, with our friend being... More

The food was first class and since then I have been going at least once a... More
