I had King Prawn dansak which contained appprox 7 large prawns. The place is open air and sit's few yards from the main strip on one side you have views of the Med,... More

The Raj is a restaurant I have visited several times over the years and I have normally found it a great place to visit.However the same could not be said of my recent trip. I visited with my son and his family with three children ranging in age from 2 years to 11. We ordered the children food from the... More

My husband and I ate here on a Sat evening. The staff were efficient but the food wasn't to the standard we expect and get in England. Poppadoms were ok but the sauces were bland. My husband's chicken tikka tasted smoked rather than spicy and my onion bhaji was just onions in batter served in strips rather than a ball.... More

It's not authentic Indian food, it's very average. Staff were ok, none appeared to be from the sub continent, service was fast. It says it's the best curry house in Cyprus. I can't confirm that, but the rest must be pretty poor if this is the case.
