“Really tasty curry!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Viraaj is a great curry house - really friendly staff and the food is amazing. Highly recommended. The only thing I would change would be the mango chutney (as it seems to be more of a carrot puree) but you can tell it is freshly prepared and still yummy. We are always pleased with the quality of food, full of flavour and great value.

“All Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Visited Viraaj with my family on a Groupon voucher. We were warmly welcomed and had a very nice meal and excellent service. The only point I need to make before signing off is that, at the point I went, Viraaj was rated (on TripAdvisor) the top Indian restaurant in Sheffield. There was nothing special about it to warrant this accolade - it was an average curry house with a fairly standard menu. However, please don't let this put you off - it was a very good average curry house; all I'm saying is that I didn't get some of the rave reviews.

“Fabulous food, lovely people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Another fantastic meal at the Viraaj last night. Beautifully cooked interesting dishes, with fresh delicate flavours, the Viraaj is miles apart from regular Indian restaurants. My chicken liver kalijee starter (which can be tricky to get right) was perfectly done and my tilapia fish sag aloo main was also excellent. My husband absolutely loved his meal - particularly his main course of Tandoori Nihari, which was an 'on the bone' dish, new on the menu. Interesting side dishes (we tried coconut rice and deshi dall) made it one of the nicest Indian meals we've eaten - and we've eaten a few! Friendly, helpful and attentive service from Hussein and Abdul, and as always a really warm welcome from Sufi - we're so lucky to have this great restaurant just down the road, honestly can't recommend it highly enough.

“Outstanding food, fantastic service and a fun evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Decided on a curry at the last minute and went to the Viraj in Woodseats. Been a few times before so it was an automatic choice. Welcomed at the door by the manager and Abdul who are always full of smiles and make you feel special . They remembered what we liked as if we were only there yesterday and the resulting starter (Special Tandoori Platter for 2) and main courses (Bengal Naga & Mix Bhuna) were outstanding - I swear that every time we go here somehow they make it even better!! Abdul was faultless as usual - he appears like a genie every time you want something. All in all a wonderful evening that leaves you wondering why you would ever go anywhere else. Can't recommend Viraaj highly enough. The staff really do enjoy their work and are rightly proud of the results of their efforts.
