Yet another excellent meal at the Raj Lodge in Old Harlow last night. The quality of the food was - as ever - truly superb! The cuisine is Bangladeshi (Bengali) in the main but they also have tandoori, balti, Persian & traditional 'Indian' dishes. Such a good choice but all are cooked superbly well. The staff are very friendly here... More

We did have to wait quite a while for our mains, however definitely worth the wait. The manager brought us a drink... More

Its a busy evening, but we were greeted and seated within minutes. Drinks and poppadoms were on the table very quickly and the service was really great. We ordered some of the specials and some sizzling starters and when they came out, the food seemed to get the attention of everyone, the smell was great and the taste was even... More

This has got to be one of the best curry houses i have visited. Service was great staff very attentive. Food was excellent. I had a mixed special madras hot. Everyone's meal was very good to excellent empty plates all round. Meals were reasonably priced and the drinks weren't over the top. Overall very good.

The standard of food has deteriorated somewhat and the special meal for £24 during the week I think is the reason why . Quality has been sliced to accommodate cheap prices... More
