We have regularly visited this restaurant on Sundays over the past few years and have always enjoyed it and the gorgeous food! We normally go on a Sunday as they do a really good deal. The staff are friendly and helpful and genuinely know their customers - can't fault it as far as restaurants go

We have not been to the Raj since the revamp and I am pleased to say the atmosphere has not changed even though the décor has. The restaurant is much brighter and with a modern approach looks fantastic. the food needs no comment other than fantastic. I would like to add that the staff try and refrain from hanging around the bar/reception area as this does become quite restricted in this area when people arrive for tables / take out orders. overall a fabulous place to eat and once visited you will recommend to others....

Went here for dinner solo on a business trip and saw a birthday party, couples on dates, and family dinners. Maybe not the best place for little ones, but a terrific, well-run place. I'll definitely come again if I find myself near here.

We have visited 'The Raj' on a number of occassions for family birthdays and just for a 'no reason' night out and we also regularly use the take away service as well. The food is absolutely delicious, it is great value for money and if your going in the restaurant to dine the service is great and the guys are extremely helpful. Try it.... go on... you wont be dissapointed :) it's SUPERB!!!
