Great for a night out, start with a drink upstairs where there are cocktails and a piano, choose from the menu and be shown to your table downstairs when ready.

My little daughter of 10 had never tried spicy food, so it was worth some trepidation that we decided to try The Raj. The manager and staff were fabulous, they couldn't have done more and the food was tasty, varied and frankly great too. We will definitely visit again when In the area...

My wife really likes the food here, so our opinions differ. The Raj has a very extensive menu, an ambient atmosphere, and is well appointed. It is also popular (see other reviews). I have always found the service comparatively mediocre. I like very hot curries, and the Raj simply does not know how to make one. Its solution appears to... More

The Raj simply has to be the best in Indian Cuisine. The hosts, Gaz, Alex and all the staff made us so welcome on New Years Eve, it seems nothing is too much trouble for them. I have difficulty getting around but everyone at the Raj are so helpful without being patronising. The atmosphere at the Raj is superb and... More

Great place to spend New Years Eve :-) the lamb was outrageously gorgeous, brilliant band and the champagne superb.. If Carlsberg did hosts, they'd have one called Gaz :-)

Superb meal and cocktails are nice, cant knock the staff who will go out there way to ensure you have a great evening and meal experience. Must try for anyone that enjoys Indian Cuisine and in the area, and even though not cheap cheap, it worth every penny.

Visited on a Monday night. Restaurant was not full but was busy. Had a pre dinner drink in the piano bar upstairs which was pleasant. The food was nice and tasty and service good. The restaurant has a bistro feel about it and a lively atmosphere. I will return.

From the outside The Raj looks very smart and classy, but don't let first impressions lure you in. Firstly the noise is so loud you can't hold a conversation. This isn't helped by the hard floors, mirrored décor and café style chairs and tables they use. We ordered a couple of glasses of wine that weren't good enough to put... More
