Turned up without booking, we were lucky to nab one of two unbooked tables. Service was quick and courteous, the Sheek Kebab starter was the best I've had for a long time. Main courses were just as delicious, decent portions and prices. We left feeling...full and intending to come back. As we left, the restaurant was packed and busy. A nice alternative to another excellent restaurant we've been to recently and definitely recommended.More

We decided to try a takeaway from here for the first time as the restaurant rated well on Trip Advisor, Google and Facebook, unfortunately this was not the case. I wouldn’t usually post a negative review but the service was so bad on this occasion....When I called I was advised a takeaway would be 45 mins for delivery. After an hour I called to ask when we could expect our food and I was advised it would be 10 mins. Half an hour later I called again and was advised the driver had already left, after which they hung up the phone immediately. Our food arrived after 2 hours and it was luke warm. After our experience we will not be using this restaurant again.More

Naga curry was very hot - just as i like it, but still full of flavour. Very attentive service. Highly recommend.

A quick stop at Way to the Raj on our way back from the airport as we were both hungry. We've used this restaurant many times for take aways and whilst I wouldn't say the food was anything special, it was never poor either. On...this occasion though, my wife's Sag Paneer had 2 pieces of paneer in it, and the dish was so salty she couldn't eat it. My Lamb Bhoona was also very runny, the meat looked rather dodgy, and it lacked any flavour at all. If we lived closer we would have returned it!More

Ordered a home delivery, we were told 45 mins but it was more like an hour and 10 mins . I understand they were busy which is fine except the food was luke warm so we had to put it in the oven for 10...- 15 mins to heat up and when we got to eat it the food had absolutely no flavour! We have eaten in the restaurant before and could not fault it but the delivery we got was no where near the quality that we have come to know from here , very disappointed and would not look to order from here again. In fact I would have to say that supermarket curries have more flavour.More

A family weekend away in the area and we booked a table for eleven at short notice. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. We had a selection of starters , seafood platter, samosas and chicken , all of which were delicious but the star...dishes of the meal were the sizzling dishes. The food was excellent and not overpricedMore
