Raj had better than average food in a good location. I think the prices could have been more reasonable on a few dishes. Not the best Indian food I had in Beijing but it was much better than Ganges (which is bottom of the barrel). No buffet lunch or lunch special like other Indian restaurants.

The restaurant is pretty close to the Drum tower and also if you are on the Hutong tour. The Indian food was very appealing and tasty too. Enough options for vegetarians too.

Nice location, attentive staff ok food. Price was bit on the higher end but compensated for the prime easily accessible location. The food was not spicy even after request but the garlic green chutney was awesome. We visited there in the evening after a tiring day at Palace museum and Jinshan park around 5 and dinner was served quick.

The Kingfisher beer (staple at... More

Being Indian vegetarian having dietary preferences, we had asked our tour operator to take us to place where our requirement is met. Raj was a great choice. We went there for lunch. There was one hindi speaking person who confirmed that he can make jain food for us. And indeed that was the case. We ordered punjabi samosa's and they... More

We turned up late and the restaurant was empty and about to close. The staff accommodated us and were happy to serve despite the lateness. The decor is so interesting and with a relaxing atmosphere. The menu is extensive with a good choice of Indian dishes. We ate very well and the price was competitive. We had a mixture of... More

As a vegetarian, I especially appreciated the delicious lentil soup at Raj (I got the regular, not the spicy and it was spicy enough) and also the grilled eggplant with yogurt topping. The restaurant was clean and had a wonderful menu. The owner himself served us. We came in late, within 30 minutes of closing, but there was no urge... More

I visited this restaurant on my last night in Beijing. We were staying nearby in one of the hutongs so it was incredibly convenient for the location so we thought we would give it a go. Having had bad experiences with "Indian food" in China before I was sceptical and rightly so. We had popadoms to start and a chutney... More
