“Very disappointing”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

The place looks great and the staff are friendly, some times too friendly in that they think its ok to serve you cold food while they are chatting to you. The blinds at the windows were filthy , venetian blinds are the worst you can have up to keep clean. Such a shame as it used to be a great indian, , admittedly I haven't been for ages and hope it has changed

“simply amazing food”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

i have been eating at the raj for years now and i have never had a bad experiance the food is always cooked fresh to your own personal taste whether you like your currys with a firey kick or deliciously mild. The staff at the raj are all wonderful and are always there to please and ensure you have the best experiance The Raj has to offer, also you will find yourself on first name terms with the staff and before you know it you'll be popping in just to see how there getting on. You wont find better bangladesh cuisine anywhere in wigan and there chicken pardessi starters are out of this world.
