We went to Al raj for lunch..The ambience and food is average.The quantity and presentation was good. But what was worth praising is the hospitality.The guy attending us always had a smile on his face.We asked him to customise few dishes to which he agreed. We felt at home. I am giving one extra point only for the hospitality. With... More

Tried this place 3/4 times as trying to work out the best Indian in Nairn. Quite honestly , none of them are very good. A half decent one would clean up in no time. Thankfully Inverness is just along the road where the Cinammon serves very good Indian food. Would not recommend ordering wine either as the selection is poor.

Standard Indian cuisine (but no less tasty for that) offered as good value buffet on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. The buffet includes your own choice of main dishes plus 2 other courses, all for less than the main dish by itself, so a no-brainer, assuming you're willing to leave very full!

Mr Ali and staff always provide the best quality indian food that make you wanting more. Lots of dishes to choose from and help always at hand if needed. Beautiful decoration and service with a smile. Nairn's number 1 for me.

I love Indian food and Indian carry outs. I have known Mr. Ali, the proprietor from the day he opened some 40 years ago and have yet to be disappointed by his meals. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

Ordered a takeaway at the weekend. Have had food from this restaurant before and we have never been disappointed. Freshly cooked, tasty and good portion sizes. We've also had meals in the restaurant and they have all been great. The staff are always very helpful and polite. A very enjoyable meal had by all. Thanks Al Raj

Decided to try this restaurant as a change from our usual Indian takeaway. What a disappointment. Most of the dishes were tasteless and the rice wasn't properly cooked. If we hadn't lived 8 miles away we would have taken it all back. We will be going back to our usual takeaway next time.
