After spending a year in India and enjoying some amazing food, I took my wife and friends to what was rated one of the best Indian spots in SA. Sadly however we were terribly unsatisfied with the service and the food. Starters were delivered incorrectly, drinks were spilled on one of us, the food came which we hoped to rescue... More

We frequent the Raj restaurant frequently. On this particular occasion we opted for a boneless lamb curry as our main course. We were extremely disappointed as almost 80% of the lamb was with fat. We raised this with the waiter who in turn called on the manager. All we received was an apology. The establishment should certainly learn on how... More

We thought we will do a couples thing this Christmas eve. Went to the Raj. The food was extraordinarily good. From the starter to the main. Was disappointed when the waiter explained that they do not have the dessert in stock that we ordered. Otherwise overall a good experience. Give it a try.

From the moment we entered we were greeted by well dressed moghul waiters - felt we stepped back into some by gone Indian era from Rajastan. The ambiance was lovely with soothing music in the background , the food was outstanding with an excellent selection of vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes. The waiters were very attentive and ensured we were... More

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
