We really like The Raj and visited twice on our recent stay in Protaras. The restaurant is up some steps but is very centrally located in the middle of the main strip. The staff are very pleasant,the service is good and there is a wide choice of dishes to choose from-I love the cheese and onion... read more

We visited The Raj for the first time in June 2015, all three of us had onion bhajis to start and they were literally just strips of fried onions covered in batter which isn't the sort of onion bhaji that we've had anywhere else in the world... The main course was fantastic however, when we complained about the starter the... More

My onion bahji was pretty much just onion rings in thick batter and not a hint of any flavour apart from oil. Pickle tray was straight from a jar, and the onion was just red onion rings with mint sauce on. My peshwari nan was a normal nan but they put currants on top and syrup. If you like this... More

We visited Cyprus on a 10 day break from 10/06/15 and this is by far the best eating place. We tried several different restaurants as there are many to choose from, but nothing hit the mark like this place, we ate there 3 nights in a row so we knew we were gonna get something lovely, trying something different from...

Great food, but asked for something different on the set meal, the waiter was not to pleased, and said he would do it on this occasion, considering this was our 1st visit I was surprised.

We always visit The Raj when in Protaras, you can't go wrong with the set menu. Bhajis, 5 types of curries, veg, rice & a nann for 29.95 for 2 people. The food is lovely & you won't walk away hungry, that's for sure! We will be returning next year.

We visited The Raj twice during our stay in Cyprus and previously 2 years ago. The service was quick and the staff were friendly. The food was amazing and we were well and truly stuffed when we left. Definitely recommend! Well worth a visit!

The worst so called Indian food we have ever had the misfortune to imbibe. Tasted like a paste with no blended flavours whatsoever. Only the garlic naan resembled anything like the anticipated cuisine. That said the staff were pleasant especially the waitress who couldn't have been more helpful.

Very disappointed, I am not used to giving bad reviews - but this is a site where you tell the truth about a place to help other tourists. The staff were friendly and it was a nice restaurant in a good location overlooking the sea with it sown car park.That is all the good bits covered.The food was by far... More
