4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We visited the restaurant last night and although the decor is contemporary and not as plush as Im use to the food and service more than made up for it. The staff were all very polite and went out of their way to be helpful. The restaurant was very busy last night so the food did take a little long... More

Loved the food and the staff & owner are brilliant. However we didn't like our sitting area as a couple we were next to a group enjoying themselves we couldn't hear one another. We loved their lounge, super nice & we had our desserts there, we will be back

When service is poor the last thing customers wnat to hear is the owner telling you to put up with it! Food is mediocre and service is very poor which is endorsed by the owner. Forget it! There are much better Indian restaurants that work hard to keep their customers and provide descent food & service

Thanks Jeff S. Unfortunately we occasionally - thankfully very rarely - have contrived nonsense appears on TripAdvisor, normally from rival and envious businesses, and it's not helpful to anyone considering visiting The Raj, just something we unfortunately have had to live with over the past few years. Rather than addressing your utter tosh of comments individually I would advise that... More

Went with friends, service was slow & food was not that great! Seems the management think they are better than they actually are!

Many thanks to Phil T for the "review". I know it's been a busy summer with the Euros, the Sri Lankans touring, a referendum, Lewis successfully doing battle with Nico on the race track, Theresa grabbing the limelight from David in Westminster and so on but to send a reply eight months after you purport to have visited is a...

The food here is excellent and the owner always remembers me - a nice touch. The menu is a little more interesting than the usual curry fair that all Indian food restaurants do. I don't bring my family here although there's no particular reason why not - my wife and I keep it for us - it's a bit more... More

Visited as a family mid week and was very impressed by the service and the great food. The staff were attentive and all the food we ordered was fabulous and tasty. The bill was a very pleasant surprise as unbeknown to us there was a 1/2 price offer on so including all drinks and food the bill was less than... More
