I "discovered" Raj Shahi over 20 years ago. I have used them for takeaways ever since. The food is always well flavoured and the portions are generous. Good value too!

The Shahi is being keen to guarantee its 2 huge pluses. Taste and Value for Money. It cannot be beaten on those 2 simple markers. It's not the Ritz. It is the most likeable basic Northern town Indian around with hidden delights on their menu.

If you don't recognise the abilities of your chef and continue to run the restaurant like a grubby back street dive then people will wish they had not made a detour to eat here. My review is less positive than before. This restaurant is ugly. The staff ok. The food is generally excellent. The owners appear to lack ambition or... More

After reading some of the recent reviews I think expectations are too high for this place. Come on, one look at it from the outside would tell you there is no need to book or the chances of getting a bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape are slim. Best think of it as a good, cheap tea rather than a classy evening out.... More

I recently had a takeaway from raj shahi, i ordered a chicken madras. It tasted like theyd seen i was a girl and watered it down for me. No taste no spice no chicken madras. Dissapointed as we used to come alot.

We saw the "good reviews" for the Raj Shahi and decided to try this out and compare....we expected an average interior and a poor external appearance from previous reviews....but we expected great food.....unfortunately not to be. We arrived on a Friday night 18:30 pre-booked and parked up no problems and entered the Raj Shahi...maybe a lot hinges on what you... More

We have been here many times since my last review over 9 months ago, this place actually becomes slightly addictive, and feel you have been cheated id you dont go on a regular basis. In the meantime we have still visited other curry house in and around the area and on the curry mile in Manchester, but still keep being... More

Had we not read the reviews on TA we would not have visited Raj Shahi as it looks rather unappealling from outside and is also a little shabby inside. Service was friendly and welcoming though from the moment you entered. Many of the people eating or collecting takeaways seem to be regulars who knew the staff well. Food was great.... More
