The thing I liked the most was I didn't feel like I was being rushed between courses.....most restaurants serve the next course the minute you finish the first and like to shove you out of the door as soon as you finish and pay. Thanks to... More

During my visit to Wigan, we happened to visit this restaurant when our taste buds were missing the Indian food due to a few weeks of continuous tours in UK and Europe. We found it to be a highly rated Indian restaurant on different sources, hence, we gave it try. Our experience with the food here was quite opposite to... More

We came here with our children for a change after seeing the reviews. We don't live near by so we were hoping it would be worth the travel and we weren't disappointed. It's probably my favourite Indian restaurant now and will definitely be back. The food was great the atmosphere was lovely and the staff were fab. Definitely recommend.

We order occasionally Indian Food from the Raj as we find the portion sizes, quality of food and price very good. We order food to collect and takeaway which has a 25% discount with each order. There is a large choice to choose from I usually go for a jalfrezi dish and paratha which are delicious. Staff are very friendly... More
