I hadn't been to Le Raj for a few years but it was suggested as a venue for 4 of us to have dinner. I was very happy with this as it was always pretty good previously. Whilst the food is generally good, the overall experience certainly wasn't a great one. The service is efficient in the main but 'cold'... More

My husband and i visited this restaurant on Saturday evening our tabel was booked for 20:30. There is no Maitre D' to welcome you, so we informed the person behind the bar of our arrival, he did not seem to be too bothered. Our table was not ready, nobody told us this, we worked it out as there were already... More

Been here a few times and although it's more expensive than most places the food and services is usually up to scratch. Went last night for Valentine's with a set 5 course menu which costs £69pp + 12.5% service charge (which they fail to mention when booking) and I am disappointed. I don't think it's value for money and although... More

You pay for what you get and although not cheap the food at la raj is excellent. We visited on a Friday early evening with a young family before it got too busy which was perfect. The staff are friendly and overall I'd recommend a visit if you have not been before.

What a disappointment. Heard good things so thought we'd try it. Never again. The whole experience was terrible. Dark gloomy atmosphere with awful depressing music playing. The food was presented beautifully but tasted average. As for service with a smile forget it I don't think I've ever seen such miserable waiters. Will definitely be avoiding this in future.

We visited Le Raj on Saturday 4th February, having visited previously a few years ago. We were shown to our seats and served with the wrong order of popadums and then our drinks. All fairly good so far! 45 MINUTES LATER and we are still waiting to be shown a menu. After asking for this, we received a dirty look... More

For a restaurant that I have visited previously and given high ratings for, I was looking thoroughly looking forward to dinner tonight at Le Raj. As per previous visits the food was exceptional and I wish I could say the same for the service......... Had to request water numerous times Had to ask for forks Had to ask for spoons... More

The food was lovely - just a shame the staff were arrogant and unwilling to see the customer's viewpoint. Just because a restaurant has a very good reputation - the staff should listen to their customers as they are only as good as their last review. Sorry - I expected a better service from Le Raj.

We visited Le Raj restaurant a much vaunted and publicised Asian restaurant in order to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We booked some three weeks in advance and we were asked if we were celebrating any special event, we were and we advised them of this. Despite this advance information absolutely no special arrangements were made and no member of the... More

Description
Situated in the rather moneyed Surrey town of Epsom Downs, Le Raj has been something of a pioneer in the world of Indian dining. Among the first to insist on all natural ingredients, this award winning dining room is known for authentic and traditional Asian cuisine done to perfection, crafted by hand from the basics up with dairy produce made on site and fish and meat cut to suit each particular dish. And while Le Raj may not be known for providing ���fast��� food, the wait is well worth it, each dish tailor made for your order so you know its fresh and, if necessary, adapted for your needs. Additional to Indian classics, owner Enam Ali has taken inspiration from his mothers kitchen in Bangladesh, providing a fantastic overview of the home cookery of that region too. Food quality is of the utmost importance but Le Raj is almost as well known for its ambience - relaxed and comfortable but still with an appropriately upmarket look and feel throughout the entirely modern interior.
