I went for dinner with a friend and first of all the service was great, we felt really welcomed. I tried the chicken madras, which was mind blowingly good. Would 110% come back again.

Used to be called the Maharajah, then changed to Roger's Kitchen and now Raizada's. Always the same, excellent, chef: Roger. Some of the dishes are made with fresh herbs: we like these the best. They have an excellent Indian beer on tap too.
