Had an excellent meal here. Food is beautiful and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The decor and furnishings are quite cheap an dated and yet the prices are not cheap, remaining on par with some fancier restaurants (hence the 4 star rating and not 5) but the standard of food and service are very good and make this...

Against my better judgement I decided to give Rajas a try as it has such good reviews. What a mistake that was! We arrived in the evening to be greeted all should I say grunted at by an uninterested waiter who pointed to our table. We sat down to find it was a plastic garden table with a cheap tablecloth...

Delivery order via deliveroo. We were hoping for good quality Indian food given the cost (compared to a normal Indian takeaway) and the fact that they are advertised as one of The Times top Indian restaurants. Unfortunately the food was very average and as such very disappointing. Chicken shashlick very bland and lacking any flavour. Cauliflower in aloo gobi seemingly... More

This place is brilliant. Low-key and unfussy, but genuinely delicious. The pakoras and the chicken tikkas are heaven and the chicken punjabi curry is the best curry I've ever had. I'm from Leeds but live in London and I look forward to coming back home so I can go to Raja's. The team are super friendly and I cannot recommend... More

I have been coming here for something like 25 years and have never had a bad meal. The consistency of the cooking is remarkable. I would highly recommend the chicken pakora or onion bhaji to start. The chicken tikka is among the best I have ever tasted and the chicken punjabi for main course is without question the best dish... More

Great curries and great food. I especially like the fact that it's non halal which is what I feel most Indian restaurants should be as that is a true representation of the culture unlike other so called indian eateries. The friendliness of the staff is a bonus. They come up with some great recommendations. Always trustworthy.

Another place I've been going to for years . This is North Indian food so never overly hot but reliant on varying spices and herbs for different flavours . This last time I had herbed lamb (very tender) with pilau rice and my son had a mixed biriani , everything prettily served and garnished with fresh herbs & salad trimmings... More

This is a great curry house; nice selection of curries which are always nicely cooked. The meat is always beautifully tender too. I quite lot hot curries so may only criticism is that sometimes I find these curries a little too mild (even when ordering medium - hot ones). However that's my personal taste. Small and friendly with excellent service... More

We have been visiting Rajas for years and it us consistently, the best Indian Restaurant in Leeds . Sometimes we get a take away and it's just as good as eating in. The staff are fabulous and it's great value for money too.

Had a meal here last night with the family. The bhajis were terrible but we had pakora too which was really nice. The service is great and the staff were really friendly, it cost a little more than we were expecting for four of us but it was pleasant enough. I wouldn't rush back but it isn't bad and the...
