As soon as you walk in, you are treated as royalty. The decor is very nice. The food really is 1st class. You won't find such good Indian food for miles around. Is also great for family's and bookings. Why go anywhere else!

Three of us went to the Royal Raj last week for my husband's birthday. This was the first time we'd been there for many years, (we'd been put off by the poor service), and were pleasantly surprised. The sevice was good throughout -just the right level of attentiveness and the food was excellent. We would definitely return.

Been here twice this year. Improve since we last went before the refurbishment in last few years. Food was much better than in the past, service was fine the first time. The second we were right on time arriving and there was no table for our booking. They said they gave it away. We then had to wait so they... More

I had several takeaways from here when I moved to Winterbourne 6 years ago but switched to the Taj as the food was a little more distinctive. The past few times I've been to the Taj, I felt it was a bit samey, maybe they've become complacent. So I took some colleagues to the Raj, the first time I've been... More

Had a number of takeaways and sit down meals. Best around for quality authentic curry. More so than another popular curry house down the road. Wouldnt go anywhere else now.

Dining alone tonight I just wanted something to eat, quick and easy. The staff here were so helpful and made me exactly what I wanted. They could not have been more kind or helpful. The restaurant had a lovely cosy relaxed atmosphere and was busy with other diners. The food was good and .........did I mention the staff. First class!
