“The Raj is the best Indian restaurant in the Wigan area by far! Highly recommended.”
Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

Been to the Raj on numerous occasions and had lots of takeaways from there too.
Excellent value, especially on takeaways which have an additional 25% discount off prices.
Been to most other Indian restaurants around wigan at some stage, and also lived in Bradford for 5 yrs, where I developed a love for this cuisine, but the raj tops them all, for excellent food, and a friendly service. I have never seen anyone 'rushed out', in fact, quite the opposite. The staff are extremely welcoming at all times.
Actually going there with friends later this evening.
I can recommend the salmon tikka starter and chicken tikka balti jal frezi for main course. Portion sizes are huge, so usually get 2 main courses to share between 3, which make it even better value for money.
Don't be put off by the outside of the building, which is situated on a small shopping precinct, as the inside is as ambient as anywhere in Manchester.
Highly recommended :)

“They rush you and not suitable for wheelchair users”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Good food but as soon as you've finished they want you out of the door, also one of our party was in a wheelchair struggled to get in
and no disabled toilet.

Drinks quite pricey as well.
