Excellent service

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...

Fab staff, beautiful restaurant and bar and amazing food. Went to The Raj for my birthday with some friends and we all came away saying how much we had enjoyed it. Brilliant value for money too.

Me and my friend had a meal here, the food was rightly priced, the food was excellent, and the welcome we got from the boss who is a legend in his own right was as if we were from the past, but we just met that night, all the best to the Raj and the owner.

You can't beat service/value/food quality at The Raj, a real gem in the heart of the Midlands. I've had some of my best dining experiences at The Raj - not just good Indian food, but real class. If this place was in London, you'd happily pay top dollar for the experience. Now living in Los Angeles, it seems like a... More

Went to the Raj on Saturday for a friends birthday, was immediately seated and due to having a nut allergy the manager happily sorted something out for me ensuring I was safe to eat. A great atmosphere and a short wait for food to arrive! Brilliant service, especially upstairs in the cocktail bar where we were looked after how customers... More

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
