We chose to eat here when in Sunderland to watch Derren Brown at the Empire Theatre, after walking around for a while undecided we headed back to the Motiraj and are glad that we did. The place was quite busy so we had chance to sit down and have a drink and look at the menu before being shown to the table.
All the food we ate was freshly cooked, flavoursome and there was plenty of it.
The staff were attentive and the restaurant was clean and modern.
Certainly somewhere we would revsiit if we happen to be in Sunderland again.

I have visited Motiraj several times over the past year and I have never failed to be impressed. Their food is of an excellent quality and there are so many members of staff that getting service is never a problem. I heartily recommend to anyone.

I've visited here a few times and the food is really good and the staff are friendly and helpful. I've only ever visited on a Thursday or a Sunday as they have the 4 course special for £9.95 which saves some money and you still get the same high quality food. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is clean and tidy. Only fault I would say is that sometimes you feel a bit rushed on the special days as the restaurant gets quite busy.

We visited early on a Thursday evening and the large dining room was packed. Everyone seemed to be having the three course special for £9.95. The whole family had the same, we were served quickly and efficiently each course, that was of very good quality and big portions. It was nice to finish off with the free coffee.
I would recommend booking whenever you plan to go to this excellent restaurant. We will most definitely be back.

Ate here again after visiting many times over the years. Service and food were excellent as usual! We chose Madras and and a Sri lankan curry as well as various side dishes and neither of us was disappointed! Add in good beer and decent prices and its not hard to see why so many people keep going back. Will definatly be going again soon!
