Good food

I was a little apprehensive before going because of all the negative reviews. We are Indians and we were missing our food in Cyprus. My husband insisted and thankfully we tried. The set menu was quite tasty - especially the potatoes, chicken rogan josh and tikka masala. I wouldn't say it was... read more

I went here two days ago and it was okay. I have read reviews really having a go which I found quite unfounded. So the onion bhaji was like onion fried in flour well surprise surprise that is what one is. The set meal is great value and covers all types of Indian cuisine. More than enough for two people...

The service here was good and we were served pretty quickly. The sauces that came with the samosas were a little strange and certainly not authentic - a sweet chilli sauce which didn't taste great was one of the options, not sure of the other! The naan, rice and main dishes were of reasonable quality. No huge complaints, but felt... More

We had the set menu for 2 so we had a little bit of everything and it was all very tasty. Unlike others I thought the onion bhajis were really nice along with the yoghurt dip. Along with the set menu we ordered an extra keema naan which was a let down and why I have only given 4 out... 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

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 nan,which you don't see... 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...
