The food is very tasty and the service attentive. The first time I came I had to rush off just as my meal came. I ate what I could which was very nice and sled them to save my bottle of wine. The next day I went and I was warmly welcomed and my wine had. Even kept on Ice.... More

Visited The Raj recently as I felt like having spicy Indian curry. Great variety of dishes to choose from. Meals are prepared according to ones preference mild, medium or spicy. Meals freshly prepared. Service is very good.

The restaurant is laid out well so that there is a warm atmosphere, but you're still private at your table. The food is noticeably more expensive than other Indian restaurants that we frequent in Fourways / Bryanston and - while our Lamb Bhuna and Butter Chicken were both hot, fresh and delicious - we felt that the portion size and...

The chef needs to be complimented - the flavours of this Indian food are wonderful - better than the food at other Raj branches I have visited. Portions are generous. Good, attentive service marred by a surly and uncommunicative manager who did not know how The Entertainer vouchers worked (why then is this restaurant listed?) and being overcharged on the... More

Had a dinner here. The lamb dish I had and my partners tandoori prawn was just ok. I did enjoy the naan bread though. The service though wasn't great. The waiter arrived with piping hot heated plates, which is great for the adults, but not so great for our 3 and 5 year old. There's not much choice on the... More

We love Indian cuisine and were truly looking forward to our dinner but it was a bit of a mixed bag. The Korma was rather bland and the colour and consistency did not seem right although the Vindaloo, after adding yoghurt, was very tasty. The stuffed Paratha Naan was, however, delicious. In spite of our disappointing experience, we would visit... More

The restuarant was laid out in such a way that the other guests didn't disturb me. It also has private lounge for special occasions. Food was tasty and service was good. Can improve on the service.

We were a party of 3 and chose the Chicken Tikka Marsala, Prawn Madras and a fancy-named lamb dish. Everything was delicious. Our waiter Sunnyboy was also friendly and efficient. We will be back.
