Three of us dined on a Friday night. We had a platter to start with. The vegetable samosas and onion bahjis were quite heavy.

An extensive menu assured our table was well decorated with a variety of curries and accompanying naan. Nothing to write home about, though we all enjoyed our meals. Service was fast (we were the only customers), the waiter was funny—overall a pleasant visit. Nothing special.

Can't beat this little gem of a Indian Restaurant to warm you up on a cold rainy day/night. Dinner was truly delicious and service delivery was great too. Loved it. 👍🏼

We were on our way to Dundin, and wanted to stop for food. We found Raj, great home restaurant. We ate Lame Korma with naan and white rice as a sidedish, amazing! Highly recommended! If we will come back to this town, for sure stopping again in Raj.

Still go here or get takeaways from here once a month the food is ok tasty enough and a good variety on menu price is reasonable but the wait for food is long even when you are the only one in the restaurant

We have been here many, many times over the years (we were there when it opened) and we have never had a bad meal. Service is always brilliant. Food is the best Indian we have ever had. Cannot fault it.

Seriously seriously good Indian here. Do yourself a favour and eat here even if you have to make a special trip. Such a gem of a place. Super friendly owners, feels like you are at their home and they are cooking for you especially. Amazing flavors and such amazing value for your money. Best place to eat in balclutha hands... More
