This restaurant was highly recommended and they didn't disappoint. A warm and friendly welcome, the service was first class all the way through the meal. A good selection on the menu, food was delicious and great value for money. Will definitely be back again.

I was a bit put off to start with at being told just over an hour for my order to be delivered however when it arrived it was definitely worth the wait. All the food was full of flavour and the tandoori is to die for. I'll definitely be having tandoori again when I next order. Excellent job well done... More

I visited the Raj after many years a little apprehensive of what to expect. I was not disappointed from the minute I walked in. The manager remembered us, made us feel so welcome and to our surprise even remembered what we used to eat. It was as if we never been away. Everything about this restaurant is unassuming. It's Indian... More

On my recent visit to friends place in Kettering, we have visited The Raj. Originally I am from Indian subcontinent. I eat Indian food on daily basis and tried many other restaurant in UK during my visit. There is a tendency by some so called Indian Restaurant to make the food more acceptable for locale and so they adjust the... More

Many thanks Hirash. We're not entirely sure you've actually visited The Raj in Rockingham Road in Kettering as your comments are both contradictory and seemingly irrespective of the venue you speak of. Although your comments regarding curry paste are acknowledged we would simply terminate the contract of the chef we've had for 25 years should he be caught with a... More

Been on more than one occasion - not bad food and the service is friendly but there are better Indian restaurants in town.

Food okay. Service good but waiters a little formal. Nice place for a romantic meal. Better service and decor than rival along the road but curry a but tasteless.

I used to live round the corner from The Raj 15 years ago, and me and my hubby often went there when we first met. It was a much smaller restaurant then, we loved the food, and were always greeted enthusiastically by the staff and owner. We have lived overseas for the last 13 years, and have just returned to...

Ordered a delivery from here on two consecutive nights whilst staying in a local hotel. Food was delivered piping hot, fresh and very tasty. Chicken biryani was nicely spiced with extremely tender chicken and on the second night the rogan josh was very nice and again full of flavour. Personally felt it was great value. Will definitely use agin when... More

The place was packed both upstairs and down but the service was excellent. The manager explained there would be a slight delay for mains. The food was excellent and we all enjoyed. Will definitely return if in area.
