We visited for my partner and a friend’s birthday. In total there were 15 of us. The service and food as always were amazing! Staff can’t do enough for you and even though a large party everything was perfect. Can not fault at all and...would highly recommend! We also regularly order take always from here and again never disappointed. Food always quality and delivered as restaurant quality.More

food was below average, i did not like anything on the pickle tray, some very strange flavours going off, everything on my mixed grill was rather bland, most likely brought in frozen.

We visited as a couple and felt very rushed from the off, we were in and had eaten starters and mains before the one hour mark, were asked twice within ten mins of finishing our meal if we wanted anything more from them (almost like...they were pleading us to ask for the bill) so we did. For a £65 meal The food was very average and my masala was comparable to a jar sauce curry you would make at home. We tried shalama gold recently and their service was fantastic, friendly and the food much better quality for a similar price.More

Another great meal, tasty and well cooked and excellent service. We have had a lot of takeaways from here, but was nice to eat out again. Thanks Hasan to you and the staff, our friends from Cornwall had a great evening.

Always enjoy the food at the Raj. We eat here fairly regularly but it’s quite pricey so not as often as we’d like. We’ve just used the eat out to help out scheme and it was reduced from £60 to £40. We had a starter,...2 x mains, rice and naan with one drink each. The staff are really helpful and friendly.More

Ordered a takeaway tonight, it came fast and was lovely! The naan bread was the best I’ve had to. Will be ordering again

Very disappointed. Won't be going again. The place was on the cool side. Was chilled when I left. The service was OK but food was dropped on the table and cleared away without any conversation from the waiter.. The food was less than average. Lacked...taste. And both our sizzler plates were charcoaled almost burnt.More

Our local curry house and we are lucky it is so good! Food consistently very good with friendly, welcoming staff. Waiters are great with our two boys and that really helps make us going fun for them too. Overall just what you want from a...restaurant. Recommend highly.More

Absolutely fantastic service from beginning to end. Got seated very quickly with very attentive service throughout. Quality of food was amazing and enjoyed every mouthful. The service from Amir was out of this world. He interacts with the customers so well and is always so...attentive and caring. We very much enjoy seeing him on our visits. Thank you to Raj and all the team for always providing a fantastic service. xxMore
