This place is amazing. I started off just having takeaway here and was amazing. Decided to go and eat in and was greeted by the most wonderful staff. They stand and open the door for you, take your coat and treat the customers how they should be treated. The food is just out of this world. Eating at another Indian... More

Have been eating here for 15 years and absolutely love it! The curries are great and so are the staff. Would definitely recommend trying The Raj. Tell Gaz, Suzy & Jon recommended you :D

We had a party of six and all thoroughly enjoyed a Friday evening, from the pre dinner experience in the cocktail bar to a great meal - have the special lamb ordered in advance and you'll be stunned - to the live music, atmosphere and after dinner entertainment. This restaurant must be one of Northamptonshire's best kept secrets, it would... More

food was epically bland and rather greasy. There was hardly any meat in my lamb curry and what was in it was clearly cheap mutton not lamb! Three of us all had different dishes and all three of us felt that the food was very bland. There was a manager in the front of house but not once did he... More

Thanks "lawrencej1984" for your most recent comments of Sunday this week. Although we are always willing and able to accept criticism and respond to any issues raised we are disappointed to say that on this occasion we must seriously question the credibility of this posting. The reference to a "superbike in the restaurant" would normally have been correct but this... More

From the moment we entered to the point we left the service was first class. Even though we have lived close to Kettering for 8+ years we have rarely eaten in Kettering. It was our first time to The Raj. All 4 of us were highly impressed with the service, the environment and most of all the range and quality... More

After living in the area for a little over two years we decided to try an Indian meal in Kettering. Sunday evening seemed a good time to try The Raj. The restaurant was scrupulously clean and the decor was excellent. We were greeted in a really friendly manner by the owner and shown to table 9. Our waiter, Shaun, was... More

We ordered popadoms and decided what we would like to eat. A while later a man who I think is the manager came over to... More
