If I go for an Indian in Henley I always choose Café Le Raj, whether on a big work night out with up to 20 of us or just with a friend on a quiet weekday evening. The staff have always been friendly, helpful and attentive and the food delicious. We can always polish off the poppadums and lovely accompaniments... More

Went with 3 mates over Easter. We all like our curries - some even have their own tandoors. The food here was different to most other Indian restaurants, they was a mix of dishes and spices that you normally dont get. Some dishes had a hint of Chinese about them with some sweeter, stickier ingredients. Still the traditional Cobra or... More

Nothing exciting about the food but nothing bad either would class as good middle of road Indian. Had a nice feel with a buzz going on. The staff need to buck their ideas up as they were very surly no welcoming smiles going on. Change that attitude and it would be a much improved experience.

I used to be a regular here but stopped going because of the 1* hygiene rating. They did a major refurbishment last year and the rating has gone up to 3* (that's still not great), so I thought I'd revisit. Even though the restaurant was deserted (it was mid-week), the first impression was very good – the narrow room has... More

Fantastic staff, they could not do enough for us. Fantastic service even though we were just in for a take away. They offered us a few tasty morsels whilst our food was being prepared. Undecided on our choice (we always get the same thing) we asked for some inspiration. He asked us what type of food appealed to us and... More

Served RAW CHICKEN AND REFUSED A REFUND!!!!! Then asked if we were joking when we asked for the refund???? Worst ever and being an Indian, this is NOT acceptable Indian food (and I'm not a posh Indian) Avoid at all costs. Rude staff and should be shut down. Enter at your own risk.... 😷

After being a loyal customer for many years, disgusted by their obvious lack of customer service, manners and ability to cook - raw chicken and not even a full refund, let alone a proper apology? Enter at your own peril. What a shame we used to like this place.

My husband and I always go to Cafe Le Raj and always had a nice experience. We love their curry far better than any of the other Indians in Henley and we've tried them all!

Can safely say that this was the worse takeaway we've ordered in over 20 years. When we ordered we were told it would be 30-45 mins, waited over an hour and a half and it came cold with items missing. Food looked diabolical - really poor service. Managed to get our money back after four phone calls, would not recommend... More

Visited on a weekday with some friends. We were greeted with big smiles from the waiters whom then sat us down and made us feel very welcomed. The service was flawless but the food was just on another level! I tried the chicken zala which was just fantastic - rich in flavour with an outstanding taste! I have visited Cafe... More
