We had a late lunch here. What a treat! We had dined at other Indian restaurants in the Sandton area and been disappointed . But The Raj was much better. We had the Murgh Bhoona and Subz Mela, with basmati rice, peach chutney and mango lassi. Everything was excellent. They warn you that "hot" is really hot, and they are... More

The Raj in Sandton has been a favourite restaurant of ours for many years. Great food and service - Maalik, the restaurant manager always makes us feel at home. The waiters are friendly, welcoming and provide excellent service. Make a point of visiting this restaurant on your next trip to Johannesburg!

Average service , starter of onion bhaji was cold and tough and arrived with the main meal. Surroundings were pleasant enough though. A bit pricey for what there was.

Apr 8 dinner: In around a year in SA, this is the first time we had food at Raj. We have not heard good reviews but this being the only outlet open at the time we went, we decided to give it a try. The interiors are quite standard with white tables/ linery with brown charis. We had the chicken... More

Went with friends. We had delicious starters followed by a wide (4) variety of curries to share. We all loved it. Warning though - hot Vindaloo is exactly that - HOT. Service was very good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Will do it again.

The place offers great food but on the spicier side of things. Alas how can Indian food be Indian without the spice. The fish tandoori is heavenly. We enjoyed the kadai chicken too. The naan was also very soft n tender.

Loved the food here. Tried the biryani, and the ostrich tikka masala. Food was excellent. Quantity ample, three dishes for a family of four was more than enough. Service was great. Located within the Sandton Mall, makes parking easy.

Hubby and I visited The Raj and had a wonderful experience. I ordered the 'Chefs Special' which is a flavorful curry made with prawn and chicken fillets, one of the best meals I've had in a while... with a garlic naan bread in the side of course. The chicken vindaloo is not for the faint hearted, it is extremely hot... More

Enjoyed a spicy fiery chicken vindaloo (expensive). Came as is. Rice, roti all optional extras at a price. Lovely meal spoilt by the crazy prices, but I suppose for the venue, rents must be paid.
