Visited the Raj Tandoori for the first time after a recommendation from a friend. We received a warm welcome when we walked through the door and the waiters were very attentive throughout our meal. Service was quick and there was a Sun-Fri set menu from which we had the 2 mix kebab starters & lamb bhuna / chicken medium curry mains. The starters were quite nice, if a little small, but there wasn't any lamb sheek kebab which we thought was standard in mix kebabs. Medium curry was nice but lamb bhuna lacked flavour and the meat was very fatty. The place itself was clean and decor nice - could have done to have some music playing in the background. Couldn't fault the staff, but would have been a more enjoyable experience if the food had been better

Been eating at this place for a few years now, its a family owned place that has been around for almost 20 years. Food is always great and service is always friendly. Early evening specials are served through the week (£8.95 menu), a la carte menu is also very competively priced (living & working in the city centre I should know). Best (my favourites) dishes are Korahis, rogans and the chilli mosallas. Many thanks for a fantastic meal everytime. Oliver

I visited this restaurant recently with my Fiancée (we usually go with my brother & his wife).
It was up to the usual high standards. Food actually seemed to be better, but maybe i was just imagining that!! I would highly recommend the Raj for food and excellent service. Ian Dawson

Our favourite late night Indian. As I've reviewed in the past, it never lets us down. Great, tasty food cooked in an authentic way.
Polite and friendly staff as always.
4 tasty starters and 4 very tasty main courses were delivered to our quartet with courteous and polite waiting on staff. What I have not mentioned before is how reasonable the prices are here. Bargain prices here compared to some other Indian restaurants in the town and the food is of a much higher quality also. All in all you need to try it.
