This is a great little restaurant, not to big and always busy, very polite and friendly staff. The menu has all the usual dishes and a wide range of specials. I have been here 3 times now and can honestly say its been tip top every time

A good Indian! Was very empty at 6pm on a Saturday so atmosphere was lacking. Would use as a take away in the future but not an evening out.

Tuesday and Thursday evening are banquet nights. Set price, choice of menu. Great food. Staff very helpful. If you can't eat all your meal, they're happy to box it for you to take away. Would most certainly advise booking.

Slow inattentive service an hour between starters and main no offer of more drinks to keep us occupied. Food was great well presented but slow to a point where we ready to go. If it's going to be slow please communicate with us not hide. Will not go back

This had been "bigged up" to me as being exceptional..sorry, I didn't find anything exceptional about it. Food was the usual standard fare, and I thought the service was unfriendly and not at all welcoming. Tables very close together..I really don't want to either hear or be heard when I am enjoying a night out, and was surrounded by some... More

Standard Indian restaurant menu priced competively. Food presented well, selected dishes were tasty and spiced accordingly. Service was good although it was early in the evening. The restaurant is in an older building in West St and gives a feeling of being a bit 'oldy worldy' but welcoming, which is a contrast to most Indian restaurants which can feel stark... More

Favourite Asian restaurant in Faversham. For a small town, we are blessed with 4 'Indian' restaurants, but this is by far the best. Friendly, beautiful food, will cook to individual tastes.

There is a good reason why The Raj is usually busy, the quality of the food and service. The banquet nights are particularly good value. There is plenty of dishes to choose from and this is a good place to eat Indian food if not everyone in your party likes chilli hot food. There are many well spiced but mild... More

On our annual visit to Faversham we again ordered takeaways from the Raj. We ordered by phone and arranged to pick up 45 minutes later as it was a big order for 9 people. We only had a few minutes to wait which was excellent. The meal we had when we got home was excellent and enjoyed by everyone. We... More

Tables are too close together and even though the restaurant was pretty empty they put a mother & son next to us! We were so close they may have as well sat on our table!! Food was mediocre! Asked for left overs to be put in containers to take home but all was mixed in one and looked disgusting! Won't... More
