Lovely take away

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

We booked very late but the staff were very happy to accommodate us. The restaurant is clean and stylish and the service was great. As usual the food was excellent and after dinner we were invited to stay to for a drink in the lounge. We had a lovely evening, thank you to you all. Amanda and Mick, Brighton

The Raj Restaurant – 1991…….must rate as one of the best Indian/Asian restaurants in the county. Having checked some of the comments on Tripadvisor, decided to call in early Saturday evening. The appearance and deco was of the highest standards in addition to the many staff awaiting and receiving the customers. There’s an attractive seating area on the ground floor... More

We had to wait 20 mins to be seated having booked well over a week in advance and also confirmed the reservation that morning. Once seated a further 20-30 mins wait for our order to be taken, starters came out quite quickly and were delicious. Main where do I start no heated trays on the table for the food that... More

Thanks for your feedback Kelly R, it is always appreciated and I'm really pleased that, overall, you had an enjoyable visit to The Raj. As you will appreciate, when bookings are made sometimes the numbers in the party change and some of the party may well arrive a little late but it's never a problem and we always accommodate each...
