Lovely family Indian meal. Had set menu which included 4 different curries, plus veg curry, Nan bread, onion bhajis, excellent value for money. Kids were made welcome and given lollipops at end of meal! Only random point, waiters didn't seem to comprehend we wanted to order desserts, transpires they don't have dessert menu which I thought a little odd, only... More

We last came to the Raj 5 years ago, and we came back with my mother & father in-law, they have never had a curry abroad as dubious of what you will get, they were impressed and they thoroughly enjoyed it, and I still think it's the best curry I've had abroad, and having Indian heritage their food is spot...

Food was ok. Service was good from waitresses but found the male who appeared to be the boss rude and lacking customer service skills.

Visited this Indian restaurant during our recent holiday in Protaras. The food was nice and the potion sizes ample, the service was very good.

Attentive service throughout the meal. Had a main meal each which was very tasty. Some customers requested their uneaten food and the restaurant was happy to put it containers and a carrier bag for them.

Lovely aspect, away from the main and lovely and quiet. Great food and service. The tasing platter was great a little of everything and was tasty and really good value for money. Spent a couple of hours there with great friends and would thoroughly recommend the Raj to anyone on holiday in Protaras.

I have been coming to Cyprus from the UK since 1990 and in the early days, there was never anywhere to go to satisfy my love of Indian food. I can honestly say that The Raj, from it's first opening to the present day, has always provided an authentic Indian culinary experience, coupled with great value for money. The great... More

Been coming here for about 10 years now as this restaurant moved a couple of years ago I don't think it have got it's spark back yet, still worth a visit if you are a curry lover as there are no others in the area to compare it to. I must admit I've had better curry's back home but I... More

Food was dreadful, starters were also tiny portions. My main lamb dish just did not taste right at all, my sons dish had a bit of chicken so hard you could smash a window with it. Avoid at all costs, it is an Indian in name only.
