Food was very pleasant and tasty. We had a couple of starters, some naan bread, two curry meals with two rice and some wine. Came to just over 40€... More

We found the service pretty awful. Andreas, the manager made us feel very unwelcome, we were actually quite scared and nearly left. Nobody other customers there I noticed too. The food is awful, curry out of a jar type job with hard crusty rice. How is this place still open? Surely the authorities should of shut this place down years... More

I find it hard to see why some reviews are so scathing. This is not a Birmingham Curry mile restaurant and you wouldn't expect it to be. The staff were friendly, the owner has a very dry sense of humour which might be taken the wrong way by some and may account for some of the negative reviews. The menu... More

Dear Manager smile a little. Couldn't complain about the food when our family fancied a take away on our last night... Shame the Owner/Manager had a face like a smacked bottom... Cheer up you took €50 off us

My husband and I stayed in Protaras and we visited Raj Indian on three occasions. The quality of food has continued to improve over the last four years. The food is outstanding, the onion bahjis are worth the visit in itself. The chef flavours the food to an excellent standard and the staff are attentive despite being extremely busy. The... More

Been visiting Raj in its present location since it opened. We try our best not to be stereo typical Brits abroad but when the food is this good you would be foolish not to. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced but not expensive,good selection of drinks with very attentive staff. Food excellent hot, ideally spiced, well presented. The staff... More

I had not been back to Protaras for 8 years and remember coming to this restaurant (at its old premises). My wife and I was so looking forward to the onion bhajee as nothing has compared since lol and they were just as good as they were back then! Cannot fault the service and quality here even though we just... More
