We made the booking, for 7pm, and were shown to our table, the eveing was cold, so the gas heaters were on, and it made the restaurant quite pleasant.
Our waitron, advised us what would be good, and I must reccommend the chicken dishes, we had the Chicken Tikka (very soft and full of flavour) the Lamb dish (Bhoona Gosht) was also full of flavour, but the lamb was a little tough, we also had the Paneer Palak (spinach and cheese) this was a winner.

We took our own wine (corkage R40) but after reading their winelist, I will order from them next time.

And yes there will definitely be a next time.

Service was good, but slow, this was due to the fact that there were only 4 waiters for the evening (should have been 7, others called in sick) but they coped very well (rushed off their feet)

Overpriced for the very average quality unauthentic Indian cuisine. I had a prawn briyani and my wife had a prawn malai - both were very bland and contained very few prawns. Has nothing on Bukhara.

We had a wonderful meal at The Raj. The service was great and the ambiance was relaxing and welcoming. We were very impressed with the quality of the food - especially considering this is a brand new restaurant! I highly recommend The Raj for fantastic Indian food (there is a real Indian chef)!

The place is well decked of and the staff are very efficient. The menu looked a little in the pricey side but nothing over the top. The food was most enjoyable and the portions where great. We just got a massive shock when we got the bill. Almost R20 for soda drinks was the shock. Surely this is a version of highway robbery. I am glad we did not order wine or beer.
