No booking, no problem! Walked in off the street to a full and lively restaurant. Seated at back away from a couple of large groups of diners. Menu was extensive and meals were good. Service was also very good. Great atmosphere. Only downside is parking, but that is a general Kettering thing. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking... More

Busy Saturday evening without a booking, but were quickly found a table for four. Great friendly service, fresh crispy popadums to start washed down with a pint of cobra. Raj pepper chicken, none too spicy but a great rich taste with peppers and onion. All the usual favorites of chicken korma and fluffy basmati rice, naans and chapattis, great.

After living in Kettering 18 months we have tried a few takeaways but failed to find a decent Indian but at last we have and will be ordering again soon and probably going to visit the raj to dine in next week Friday :-) faultless food and very reasonably priced. Delivery in good time also.

My wife and I returned to The Raj to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary recently as it's a place that meant a lot to us when we were just boyfriend and girlfriend. We've since moved to L.A., where good Indian fare is tough to find, and it was a real treat to head back to the old county and spend... More

Regularly use this place. It's really nice inside. Very clean and looks great. Staff are good fun and very helpful. They have a flashy little cocktail bar upstairs which is great for after dinner drinks. Food is excellent! I love a curry and I've not had better than this anywhere round Kettering! Highly recommended!

We popped in three weeks ago on a Thursday night without a booking. The food was top quality as was the service. I can safely say I will be coming back again. Very tasty food and the drinks were reasonable. Great night. Thank you
