“Just brilliant as always”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

Raja's is an unassuming restaurant in harehill. The owner (Raja - surprisingly) is always there, he oversees evry aspect of the meal and comes over to the table to chat and be generally friendly.
The staff have been there for a long time which is always a good sign.
My favourite dish is the Murgh Massallam which is a speciality dish.
You will have a fabulous meal, guaranteed.

“Still the best in Leeds, no question”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

It may be unfashionable inside, and it may not be in the best area, but Raja has kept his loyal clientele coming back for more excellent Indian (and it IS Indian) food for more than 20 years.

The fish pakora is sensational, as is the curried livers, but for me the treat is the vegetarian side dishes - all of which are unbelievably flavoured.

Service is always with a smile, and you can get a takeaway too!

Thanks Raja - a pleasure as always.

“Still yet to find any better, after 25 years of trying!!!!!”
Reviewed November 7, 2010

Just try the freshly skewered and cooked chicken tikke (non of the horrid red dye), best lamb and spinach curry and the BEST DISH EVER - the Murgh Massalum. A chicken breast patially on the bone, stuffed in the middle with keem and rice and herbs and cooked in the most delicious masala sauce ever. I have taken to many people here to try it and they are all hooked. Also, the chicken pakora is outstanding. The same staff have been here year after year, Raj the owner is always around, very consistent food thanks to the consistent staff. Oh, and the kitchen is open so you can see the clay oven as they cook your food. Oh and the tandoori chicken, slightly blackened from the clay oven - I think you can see I love this place.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 23, 2010

Have been going to Raja's for years. Definitely the best Indian in Leeds. Friendly staff matched with fantastic, authentic food. Hidden from the pedestrian hauds of the City Centre, this is a real gem!
