I took my boyfriend here for his birthday as he loves Indian food. We were greeted by really friendly staff and the manager even realised that we were new and started chatting to us. We ordered starters and main and they came really quick and portion sizes were great. Service was really efficient and we did not have to wait... More

We visit the Raj a few times a year and are never disappointed - the service is friendly, the food is excellent and we always leave extremely stuffed. Highly recommended!

The service in Raj is excellent and the food is even better!! 4 of us were there for dinner last night and the staff couldn't do enough for us and were very pleasant and helpful. The food is lovely and is one of the best Indian restaurants in Belfast. Highly recommend!!

Had the most fantastic meal here. Food was top class and the Patia was the best I had ever eaten. My partner was equally impressed. Service was great and staff were very welcoming. Highly recommend.

Our first time ever to the raj, having been long time fans of our local Indian we were always hesitant to try new places as we are often disappointed in comparison. The raj offers great service and very satisfying Indian food! Try the Roshani dish if you like heat!

Last night myself and my partner had a lovely evening in The Raj, in fact we always do every time we come here. It's situated brilliantly on the Lisburn road, the decor is lovely and the food and service is always top notch! You should try the Puri prawn starter, so delish, but you can't go wrong with any of... More

I usually order from here when I want an Indian meal. The portions are a good size - I love their butter chicken.
