Description: Upmarket, yet relaxed INDIAN restaurant on the Camps Bay strip with Authentic North Indian cuisine served up by Indian Chefs from Delhi with years and years of experience. We are currently serving from this location for the past 7 years. The restaurant opens up on to the view of the Camps Bay beach and is a brilliant venue for a large group of friends, a romantic date or a even a business meeting. We offer a wide selection of vegetarian curries and some Jain & Vegan Options too. We are also Halaal-friendly. We have a full bar - Wine; beer; whiskies; spirits; craft beers and fresh cocktails of the season.

I never had better Indian food outside India than this. I liked their food so much that I had to thank the chef Pandey ji. He really brought back true Indian taste in us. Thanks.

There is a night club on top of the restaurant where they play extremely loud music (I mean EXTREMELY) as of 7pm... you can hear it in the restaurant, no matter where you sit, impossible to escape. Service is attentive, food is ok but the whole experience is just ruined by noise upstairs, unbearable.

We had booked the Raj for a cricket team (Ambassadors of Cricket) dinner on 23 May 2014. The location was not far from our hotel. We had ordered a set menu. There was a Jain vegetarian in the group who had no issue with her food. The starters and meal was overall good. However, the service lagged behind - cutlery missing on the table in some cases a spoon or a fork, the dishes took time to be replenished. The flipside is that the restaurant filled up very quickly so that could be a reason for slow service but there ca be no excuse for the cutlery mismatch! On the whole, we had a good dinner. Recommended for those who want to have Indian food in South Africa - it is a chain with branches in other cities as well.

Our family were there for Fathers Day and the restaurant was packed. We loved our food, the way it was served and although service was very slow... what can one expect when delicious and authentic food is being made from scratch! Well worth the wait. When I phoned to reserve a table and questioned the very friendly gentlemen on the phone about the one party being allergic to gluten he was more then helpful. Such a pleasure and we will definitely be back.

Shocking service and the restaurant manager had the worst attitude I have ever seen. In his eyes: "the customer is always wrong. ."
We wil never go back there.
