With all the much better Indian restaurants in town, the only reason to come to this one is if you happen to be nearby. But be careful if it is close to closing time, because the staff can quickly lose patience. We were never served water (eventually, we got up and found a pitcher of water and poured our own)....

I have been coming to the Raj for many years after being introduced to it by an Indian friend of mine. Over the years I learned to love the nuances of Indian food and have enjoyed it across the country. But when in Cincinnati I try to stop by for their lunch buffet. I have to contrast with the poor...

Even though the restaurant had only 3 tables filled when we arrived, we had to wait for our food (they do a booming take out business!) Not complaining . . . It was lovely and quiet. Had the Lamb Korma and my friend had the Chicken Korma. I had a 5 of 6 in spiciness and could have gone with... More

Went for lunch buffet with a friend. Small assortment. Food was lukewarm. My friend found two hairs in her food. Bathroom was filthy. Never going back.

We stopped during dinner time on a weekday. When we arrived, there was only one other family dining but while we were there several groups arrived. Service was quick, polite and consistent. The food was delicious although our vegetarian daughter did not enjoy the veggie balls. We ordered three types of bread, plain garlic and fried which was just right... More

I love the chicken Mater. My favorite naan is the Kashmir naan. It's always been very consistent. This is my favorite Indian restaurant in the area.

My wife and I like Indian food and are always willing to try a new place. I had just picked her up at the airport and we were heading home. A road closure forced us to take a different route and because of the delay, we decided to eat out rather than cook at home. We pulled into a small... More

The food is amazing! I usually don't like spicy food, but Royal Taj won me over. They have a $7 buffet, but order off the menu. You can pick your spicy level and get one of the dozen different kinds of nan, outstanding.

We went several times before we moved out of Cincinnati, but ate lunch the first chance we had when we visited recently. If you want to try a little of everything and don't care for spicy, definitely try the lunch buffet. You can try all sorts of yummy things and not feel like your tongue is being burned out of...

We all really liked our food, but be sure to order a lower-than-you'd-think spice level. I like spicy food and ordered a 3 out of 6, and it was VERY spicy. Even people who ordered level 2 were downing their water like crazy. Our server was extremely nice, but there were some problems with the service--a missing cook and our... More
