Great find

Taken by a friend who had eaten well there and had a brilliant meal on a sunday evening, good service, nice modern and clean, parking on street might be tricky another day but wasn't at that time, interesting motorbike connection inside, and best surprise was the extremely reasonable price.

I'm from Birmingham but live near Market Harborough. The West Midlands has spoilt me over the years in terms of Indian cuisine, which I naturally want to find south of Leicester. So after trying out most of the Indian restaurants on different nights in and around Market Harborough, I have now concluded that The Raj hits the spot. The closest... More

We visited The Raj on a busy mid-week evening. Warm, friendly welcome. Excellent service, food was outstanding and the atmosphere was buzzing. We'd left it far too long since our previous visit but will be returning again soon.

My partner had surprised me with a meal out here at the raj for my 30th! From the moment we walked in we were waited on hand & foot. Even our table was wiped between each meal that came out! We had a bottle of wine out on ice and each time our glass was empty one of the waiters... More

We called in there last week on spec, O.K. the restaurant is pleasant ,the food is tasty and the service is second to none, the main courses are generous and filling. However my special mussel starter At £5:75 contained only four mussels, my wife's Butterfly prawn in tempura batter consisted of only a single prawn and the "tempura" was in... More

Hands down the best indian meal I've ever had. Service was excellent. Staff were amazing. No rush to eat. Treated brilliantly and had the best experience all round. I arranged this meal for my partners 30th birthday and the manager had laid out rose petals and roses on the table before we arrived. We will be returning. 5*

Visited here on Wednesday evening! The restaurant was really lovley! There's also a piano/cocktail bar upstairs!! Well looked after by the waiters. I think it was the owner/manager who took our order and he asked us what we like and he would make it for us! We opted for a lamb bhuna style! When it arrived it was still in... More

We crossed this city during holiday and wanted a good meal for the evening with the kids. By coincidence saw The Raj and went in without a reservation; this was no problem. The personel was very kind, the wine was good and the food was excellent: very nice curries, rice and the kids got special nan bread for free. We... More
