“Absolutely fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

We came to this restaurant having bought a groupon for it. I've driven past it many a time but it always looked a little shabby however inside it is beautiful and the food is sublime. We were greeted and seated quickly, service was impeccable and the waiters were attentive almost to a fault. The food as I've said was delicious and there was a lot of it whilst still being good quality. Food was clearly cooked to order and both meat eaters and vegetarians left exceedingly satisfied. Thank you, we will be back!

“Brilliant food and first class service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

From the welcome to the good bye, the service was genuine and of a very high standard. The menu was varied and well presented. The waiter offered suitable recommendations.

When the food arrived it looked as nice as it tasted and the portions were generous.

The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a very enjoyable experience, we will definitely be visiting again.

“Excellent food - lacking atmosphere!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

We went to Ve Raj just after it opened, some years ago and weren't impressed with it, so we've never been back. A few weeks ago some friends suggested that we go there and so we thought we would give it another try. I did book a table on the internet but the system didn't appear to work properly so I had to ring to book it. Upon arrival, the welcome was non-existent so we sat in a corner and ordered a drink from the bar. However once we ordered our food, were shown to our table things improved significantly and the waiters were very attentive. All four of us had starters as well as main courses and all of them were absolutely excellent. It was midweek when we went and so everyone was sat in the first big room - the adjacent room, which you had to walk through to get to the toilet was absolutely freezing, as was the toilet! I realise this is a minor point but it added to the fact that on the whole the restaurant was very lacking in atmosphere - a shame because the food was brilliant.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

This has got to be one of the best curry houses I have EVER been in. Syd may have gone to the Voujon, but the boys here are great and food here is still brilliant.
They do everything how you want it, will take something out, put something extra in.
The kitchen is spotless!
All the meats are the best cuts and there is always vast amounts of it. Cooked to perfection.
Brilliant, every time!!
