Had a completely vegetarian meal at The Raj. Food was delicious. Ordered Dhal Makhni and Paneer Makhni. However, service was very slow. Decor is simple and could be better to spruce up the restaurant. Not as elegant as its closest competition (Bhukara is upstairs from...More

Average service , starter of onion bhaji was cold and tough and arrived with the main meal. Surroundings were pleasant enough though. A bit pricey for what there was.

Went with friends. We had delicious starters followed by a wide (4) variety of curries to share. We all loved it. Warning though - hot Vindaloo is exactly that - HOT. Service was very good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Will do it again.

The place offers great food but on the spicier side of things. Alas how can Indian food be Indian without the spice. The fish tandoori is heavenly. We enjoyed the kadai chicken too. The naan was also very soft n tender.

Loved the food here. Tried the biryani, and the ostrich tikka masala. Food was excellent. Quantity ample, three dishes for a family of four was more than enough. Service was great. Located within the Sandton Mall, makes parking easy.
