I travel to Southampton with work regularly, and the one benefit of being away on business is that you can try out lots of different restaurants - not great on your waistline, but good if you like food!
I love curry - and could happily move to India, and live on Indian food. I'm very critical when I go to an Indian restaurant, because I know what tastes authentic, and what is a plastic, knocked up out of a jar curry for the British market - and believe me, I've had a few of those!
Rasraj really made an impression on me on my first visit - so much so that I was happy to walk all the way across town for a second visit. The food is simply delicious. I has a "Gosht E Laziz" curry, which I'd never heard of but it was out of this world. The lamb melted in your mouth, and you could taste all the flavours. The "Kashmiri Pilau" was also fantastic - with fruit and big chunks of pineapple that just complemented the flavours of the curry perfectly.
Service was friendly and top notch on the quiet Monday evening I was there, and I can't wait to go back next week!
I've tried several other curry houses in Southampton, and while they were good - this one beats them hands down, for just having a much more authentic and flavourful approach to their food.
