“Consistently excellent.”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I normally get a take away from Raja's but ate there Saturday night with my wife. As always welcoming, friendly staff. It was a little quiet but I'm not complaining. We had a fantastic meal. My wife had the mango chicken special which flavoursome and I had Lamb Karahi. Menu has expanded recenty and both these dishes where fantastic. The quality of the meat excellent and the sauces just right. I asked for medium hot and got it.

Bill was £40 (inc. 10% SC) which we both thought as reasonable for 2x starters/mains/sides and drinks. Recent refurb has lifted the place a little but I look beyond the decor and go for quality and service which are top notch. Worth a trip out of town.

“Raja's - the best curry and the friendliest service outside of India!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Raja's restaurant may look unprepossessing from the outside, but inside you will get the friendliest welcome, the most professional service and the most delicious curry you could possibly hope for. The dishes are varied, freshly cooked, generously served and exceedingly good value. We've tried most things on the menu and there are no duffers. The specials are always good too. Go there - you won't be disappointed!

“Good food, good value”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We've eaten a number of times at raja's, it's one of our favourite Indian restaurants in Leeds. Ids the food the best Indian food we've ever had? No, probably not, but it is always reliably good, well presented and very reasonably priced.

I probably wouldn't choose it as the venue for a "special" meal, it's not that ambiance. However, if you fancy a good meal on a Friday night, with friendly service and well-cooked Indian food, all at a very good price, then Raja's can't be beaten.

“10 years of greatness”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I have frequented Raja's for 10 years and i can honestly say i have NEVER had a bad meal or indeed a bad reception from the more than obliging staff.
It has always been known as a good "local" Indian and has really needed a facelift over the years, I am pleased to report that Raj has done it. Not opulent but clean and friendly. Thank you Raj and i look forwards to many more happy years of using your fine restaurant for sustenance and enjoyment.

“Authentic Punjabi Cuisine in a warm and friendly restuarant”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Raja's is a superb Punjabi Restaurant in Leeds with its menu is full of authentic Indian food such as Malai Koftas and Maa di Daal. They use a traditional Tandoor oven making their naan's and breads light and tasteful. The choice and variety will mean it will suit everyones taste and the staff who have been working their for years make your dining experience special. I go regularly with my family and see other families, couples and friends enjoying a great night out, forgot to mention their prices are very reasonable.
