We went to the Royal Raj by recommendation and weren't disappointed, the service was second to none and the food was delicious, looking forward to going back soon and on leaving I was given a large single pink rose, what a lovely gesture.

We had a take away for 5. 5 mains and rices. 4 mans £87 😳 I found it very watery & tasteless and not worth the money sorry. It used to be very nice maybe the chef changed..
