Three of us went to the Royal Raj last week for my husband's birthday. This was the first time we'd been there for many years, (we'd been put off by the poor service), and were pleasantly surprised. The sevice was good throughout -just the right level of attentiveness and the food was excellent. We would definitely return.

Been here twice this year. Improve since we last went before the refurbishment in last few years. Food was much better than in the past, service was fine the first time. The second we were right on time arriving and there was no table for our booking. They said they gave it away. We then had to wait so they... More

I live In bristol am a massive Curry fanatic!!! and am spoilt for choice with good Indian restaurants but since the royal raj has been taken over and redecorated this is definitely our favourite local Indian restaurant. Bob and the team always look after us and the atmosphere is great too. Service is always spot on whether it's peak times... More

I had several takeaways from here when I moved to Winterbourne 6 years ago but switched to the Taj as the food was a little more distinctive. The past few times I've been to the Taj, I felt it was a bit samey, maybe they've become complacent. So I took some colleagues to the Raj, the first time I've been... More

Had a number of takeaways and sit down meals. Best around for quality authentic curry. More so than another popular curry house down the road. Wouldnt go anywhere else now.

Dining alone tonight I just wanted something to eat, quick and easy. The staff here were so helpful and made me exactly what I wanted. They could not have been more kind or helpful. The restaurant had a lovely cosy relaxed atmosphere and was busy with other diners. The food was good and .........did I mention the staff. First class!

This was our first visit to the Raj, and we were impressed with both the quality of food, and the friendliness of the staff when we came to collect our takeaway. We look forward to having a sit in meal sometime soon.

First visit to the Royal Raj for a number of years having previously been a fairly regular customer. The restaurant has been refurbished to a high standard since my last visit and is very well appointed and comfortable. Although it was a very busy Tuesday night, service was very friendly and efficient. The menu is extensive with a large variety... More
