Very rushed service, felt like they just wanted the table back. Food very average for the price. Would definitely not return.

Very easy to book a table from a friendly waiter. Lovely greeting on arrival and there is a lift for people with mobility problems like myself. Excellent friendly, fun service. And the food was fresh and lovely. We will definitely be back next time we visit Derby.

Just picked up a takeaway and have been overcharged. Given the previous review I have tried to send a message through their website to tell them about their false advertising but it won't go through

We love the Royal Raj for several reasons, the flavours, the ambience and attentive staff. Last nights meal was no exception everything was so good and we all enjoyed the delicious food. The service from the kitchen is fast but not too quick that you have only just been seated! Today we put off our Sunday roast lamb as we were still feeling full after quite a feast! If you are looking for a great Indian restaurant just out of town with free parking then make a booking at The Royal Raj - you won’t be disappointed!

We hadn’t been to The Royal Raj for a few years, despite it being local, so we decided to go early evening last Saturday. Friendly and attentive staff. Also, they were knowledgable about which dishes were vegan (for me). The food was outstanding. Lovely, fresh ingredients and great flavour. I have just booked again for our son’s birthday. I had forgotten how good it is!

What a great way to enjoy Christmas Day lunch, fabulous choice of food, well cooked, presented and best of all very tasty and at a very good price, no worries of what people like/don't like just go along and enjoy the day with family with very good service from the staff.

Been visiting the Raj over the last 10years and it’s had its ups and downs in terms of consistent quality foods, never been bad but just sometimes would take a dip in quality and taste. Just visited with my family on a Sunday, and whatever the place is doing now needs to be sustained, absolutely delicious, best food I’ve had here in all the years visiting, curry’s deep in flavour and perfectly balanced, pops and pickles never been so fresh, naan bread soft fresh and packed with cheese with just the right garlic, rice just perfectly cooked and not too oily, chips (for kids) again perfectly cooked not too oily and tasted fantastic. Keep this up and there’s a lot less need to be visiting the curry houses in town.

We went for a birthday meal with friends, we did not tell the restaurant this but they spotted the birthday cards and gave a free drink a thoughtful touch. The food was brilliant as well, Naz who served us was attentive and helpful.

We had yet another superb meal at The Royal Raj in Allestree, Derby - they never let us down serving quality food and superb flavours, our compliments to the chefs. The service from all staff is impeccable particular reference made to a very special young man called WALEED. What a star he is, so polite with a cheeky grin that cheers anyone on a rainy evening! He is always ready to offer his super manners throughout our fabulous dining experiences. WALEED is a real credit to the restaurant and I am sure that he is valued by each and every member of staff. Well done The Royal Raj for a brilliant meal and thank you to WALEED for the icing on the cake!
