We joined Rez and his team at Le Raaj in December. I am a full time wheelchair user and use a powered wheelchair (WHILL C) so it was refreshing to see a restaurant that had clearly thought about making their restaurant fully disabled friendly. I could easily access all areas of the restaurant using my wheelchair and the disabled toilet was great also with the emergency red pull-cord reaching the floor, plenty of grab rails and wheelchair-level height sink. When we booked, the staff were great at finding me a table that I could easily pull my powered chair up to and also had an easy route to the accessible bathroom. I don't have dietary requirements but it was great to see a restaurant with a vegan and gluten-free menu easily available for those that have these.

The food was delicious; fragrant and rich with a wide variety of spices. I also loved the luxurious, opulent decor that definitely elevated this restaurant above all in the surrounding area. The atmosphere was great and it was really nice to see a place so popular on a week night in frosty December! It would be an ideal place to visit on a group celebration, a romantic date-night or even just as a midday week night treat. There are also large function rooms you can hire out if you'd like.

My partner and I both had a lovely time and will certainly be visiting again next time we are nearby!

Visited last night for the first time! I cannot believe why we have not been here before now.This is by far THE best restaurant we have been too, the food was delicious and tasty, I could go on and on about this gem on my doorstep from the stylish decor to the hardworking attentive staff. But honestly it’s a MUST visit for an exceptional dining experience.
