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.

Been a great customer for years have always rated the Raj Lodge as nothing less than superb, but after two recent visits something has seriously changed for the worse.

Visited a number of times & never ever experienced bad service or food. Great place to meet family or friends. One of the sons & partner always insists on visiting the Raj Lodge when they visit. Table already booked for their next visit.

We can't believe the negative reviews about our local Indian restaurant. Mo and all the staff are always professional hard working and welcoming. The food is always delicious and never disappoints so much so that we have a meal from the Raj at least once a week!!! The restaurant is always busy and full of regular local people.

I visited the Raj Lodge on Saturday evening, for a pre-booked meal with 15 guys on a stag night. However, let me qualify that. The stag and most of the men are over 50, so this is not a rowdy drunken rant. However, we were hungry, and some of our party were rugby players, with hearty appetites. The restaurant is... More

Our takeaway was delivered promptly and was to quality authentic Indian food. We had Prawn Biryani, Tandoori Chicken and Tandoori King Prawns. It was all delicious and the tandoori prawns were enormous.

Had a great meal in here in between Christmas and New Year. It was busy but the owner/manager always does his best to find a space. We were served promptly and our drinks were always topped up. The food was fantastic. My family, friends and I have been eating here (and at the Garden of India) for years. The food... More
