Chicken Balti was outstanding, I have ate Balti's in many curry houses and this is one of the best I have tasted. Chicken and lamb Tikka was very tender and plenty of it. Lovely seating area outside with a good ambience and very attentive staff. Definitely worth a visit. Can.t wait for my next visit!

Went for a friends birthday meal and the service was incredible, waited on hand and foot, food was delicious and piping hot, had a nice corner to ourselves and thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

We visited after 10pm on a Thursday night following a visit to the Lighthouse Theatre. We ordered poppadoms to start and my partner described them as the best poppadoms ever. We chose house special biryani, garlic chicken, peshwari naan and mushroom bhaji to follow - all were excellent. The service was prompt and friendly and the bill was surprisingly low... More

Having visited The Raj on numerous occasions, l felt it was about time I wrote an honest review of this local restaurant. The surroundings and ambiance of the Raj are somewhat exceptional in comparison to other local and regional restaurants. That said, the food and service are second to none. I have never been disappointed with the attention to detail... More

Lovely surroundings, a lot more upmartek and modern than most Indians, however the food wasn't as beautiful as the decor. Don't get me wrong the food was cooked well and was tasty but it just seemed as if something was a little lacking, maybe just overawed by the ambience.

We went to celebrate my birthday but despite booking a table there was no table for us when we arrived . We sat at the bar and had some drinks and we eventually were seated at 9:15 PM.

Thanks UKRobinF. We definitely were very busy that night and if the noise was excessive we can only apologise. Having checked back on CCTV it is important to correct your timings and we can confirm that your table was ready from 20.00hrs, you were seated at 20.18hrs, had papadums at 20.29hrs and your starters at 20.49hrs. Your table was then... More
