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.

This was one of the best curries I have ever had. I was looking at the excellent menu and the owner popped by to ask me what I fancied. I asked if he could recommend an intensely flavoured but not too hot lamb dish. He smiled and took the menu off me. He did the same with my friend, she... More

Ate here for a birthday celebration. I always order the same food and fancied something different. I was able to tell the chef the types of food I preferred and they came up with a dish just for me! It was delicious! We also went upstairs to the champagne bar which was lovely. By far my favourite Indian restaurant.

I would say avoid at all... More

I think that the big strength of the Raj is the food itself. We very much enjoyed our meal, which was tasty, hot and a little more sophisticated than some other Indian restaurants we have used in the area. The service was also excellent, and the only weakness, for us, is that the restaurant is quite noisy. It has a... More

The food wasn't exactly the best I have tasted but was ok. The whole experience could have been a lot better.

This Indian restaurant is much too noisy - with a large group it is near impossible to hear the person next to you. The food is not good enough for the prices they charge, and the drinks are similarly overpriced. Whilst the decor is very modern and premium and customer service is on point, I cannot recommend this restaurant due... More
