“Lovely but given wrong dish ”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

Saturday night took the easy option an went for a take away!! Having been here before I know it was good and the staff are always so hospitable from the moment you walk through the door!! The restaurant was full which is always a good sign!! I ordered the mixed tandoori which was as good as always full of flavour and plenty of meat which was ideal though my girlfriend ordered chicken tikka masala and only received plain chicken which was disappointing the chicken was cooked well but by the time we found out couldn't take it back!! The starter was also a let down ordering butterfly king prawns and only receiving one with two of us there - would go back but make sure the order is right before you leave!!

“Excellent”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

We adore eating at the Thetford Raj, and regularly make a 20 mile round trip to go there. The staff are very friendly and the food is gorgeous.

We enjoy Indian food and always try and sample Indian restaurants when we visit other towns - this rates as one of the best. We regularly take friends and family there if they are staying and it always get thumbs up from whoever we take.

It is excellent value, fresh and tasty and the portion sizes are just right. The staff are excellent, with a fab sense of humour, but very attentive and they always give the ladies a rose to take home.

We love eating here and would recommend it (especially the garlic chicken!) to anyone who enjoys Indian food.

“Disgusting”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Don't bother even thinking about this Indian restaurant. The Sunday buffet did not even get close to other Indian buffets in town. The food was tepid and some things not even that. If you want to stay healthy stay away.
If you want Atmosphere you may well stay at home. The money spent on the rose at the end of the meal would be better spent on keeping the food HOT !!

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We won a voucher for £30 off a meal for two in a raffle which we redeemed last night. The restaurant is a bit out of the way and it had not occurred to us to use it before. The food and service were absolutely first rate. My wife was presented with a rose by the waiter which was not nearly as cheesy as it sounds and we were given a VIP pass entitling us to 20% off in future. We will definitely be making this a regular haunt.
