Lovely welcome and food

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.

There was a crowd of us who booked far in advance so you would think the service would not be a issue!! (as they had plenty of notice to get sufficient staff on duty). The service was poor and the meal was cold, rice being served on a plate for 4 people there was no hotplate for the main dishes... More

I've had dinner at The Raj every couple of months for many, many years now and it's always maintained it's consistent high level of service and quality of food. Every dish is a winner, hard to pinpoint any particular item. Kudos to Gaz, the owner, for running such high quality, consistent ship!

I've been using the Raj for over 20 years throughout its development and it is by far the best Indian cuisine outside London - probably in the whole of the UK. I have never had any of my guests disappointed and the amazing help that Raj and his team provide for special menus is second to none.
