I've been here a few times and I have take out a lot here too. The staff are very friendly and the food is really good. The restaurant is very well decorated and it is good value for money.

We have dined here since it first opened and have always been happy with the food and the service.Sadly the last couple of times have not been great. Tonight has been the finale in appalling service and passable food. We felt as if no staff member could be bothered to take an order and when asked for something like water... More

If I could give this place a zero then I would! My family and I visited 'Le Raj' on holiday in Wales. It was not what we expected, the staff wanted to get rid of us the moment we sat down! They brought over our Main Course whilst we were still finishing our Starter! They wanted us in and out!... More

We booked a table in advance as we know how busy it gets here. There were plenty of empty tables when we arrived and we were seated within 10 minutes of our arrival. We ordered drinks and poppadoms while we looked at the menu. Almost straight away a waiter came for our order but I asked for extra time. Within... More

Also the decor is awesome very... More

I went with two friends. The restaurant is lovely and clean and beautifully decorated. We had lovely crisp poppadoms, onions, chutney, lime pickle whilst we perused the menu. I had onion bhaji to start. Four little balls of crispness were on my plate. I didn't want them to end. My friends had crab cakes and chicken kofti which they both... More

Having patronised this restaurant on several occasions I was utterly, bitterly and most of all shocked beyond believe to watch them empty the left over dips back into a larger pot only to be used for the next customer, how many customers have been served the same dips????with their popadoms. I find it hard to comprehend this practice going on... More
