Visited on a weekend evening, very busy but organised. Very nice meal off the Tour of India section of the menu. Good service.

We have been enjoying the best quality food and service at Le Raaj for almost 10 years now, never disappointed and since Covid restrictions were brought in Rez and the whole Le Raaj team have been fantastic. Brilliant menu choice with many chef's special dishes...on the Rose of India Touring menu along with all of the usual curries and tandoori dishes all of the highest quality, great starters too! The take away service has been conducted extremely efficiently and with Covid safety measures in place to make it smooth and safe. On the last visit we were given a "barbecue box" to try, enough to feed a family of 4 with food to spare, prepared and presented beautifully including tandoori chicken, chicken and lamb tikka pieces, various kebabs and slides and dips. Fantastic, it served us for 3 meals!! Can't wait to be able to go and sit in and experience the warm, friendly service and excellent food.More

I have had takeaway from here many times and the food is incredible. Tonight we had Chicken Tikka Shashlick, Onion Bhaji and Kashmiri Lamb Chop among other things and it was delicious. The portions are generous as well! They were kind enough to give us...a free dish and rice as well as a BBQ kit to enjoy. One of the best Indian restaurants I have ate at and I look forward to visiting in person!More

Ordered food for our Friday night takeaway. Collection was simple and very well done, following all guidelines. The food itself is excellent! We ordered a selection from the "Rose of India Touring Menu" and it was all superb! Especially the Lamb Hara Masala and the...Tusli Murgh. We've had food from here a few times and will certainly continue to do so! Highly reccomended.More

Everything I ordered for collection was absolutely delicious with nice attention to detail. Peshwari naan was light and fluffy, fresh side salad with pomegranate seeds, beautifully seasoned paneer and really tender chicken tikka. Will definitely order again, thank you chefs!

Been sometime since I was here and due to lockdown, was a takeout meal instead. Huge menu to choose from, loads of food for 2 people, some for lunch the following day!!! 2 different chicken dishes for main course, both were excellent, the order was...ready on time for collection, no other customers waiting at the time, so in and out and food was hot when I got home less than 5 minutes early. Although excellent food, just thought it was a little expensive for what is in effect an Indian takeawayMore

Absolutely outstanding food and service. The takeaways are as near to a restaurant experience as you can get at the moment, a little bit of Lockdown luxury!

We have just finished eating our food which we picked up couple of hours ago and it was absolutely delicious- as usual!! Service was smooth and efficient, ready at booked time and as we were a little early we sat in the car and it...was brought to us with a smile. Brilliantly packaged, even down to the small pots of salad, very generous portions and again delicious. Rez you and your team are doing a great job - keep it up and you’ll reap the rewards when you can open again properly. See you again soon, thank you all. AlisonMore
