They serve great Indian cuisine and have a reasonably priced wine list. There is a patio and both open and blocked spaces for conversations with the hard of hearing.

Steps away from one of the Stratford Festival’s main theatres, this established Indian restaurant offers a “way too much food” prix fixe for $60 Canadian, but sides can make a full meal too. The crackers with savory & sweet dips are addictive, and the soup a pleasant surprise that is seasoned well & not too salty. Surprised that excellent chicken tikka does not come with rice, surprised every entree is pre-seasoned, surprised so-good naan is heavily buttered. Plenty of room since there are 2 rooms, but one bustles & one, nearer the lively (enclosed) kitchen was so quiet. Accessible entrances are blocked & unused, so steps up, steps down. Parking.

Were in Stratford and the hotel guestbook had the Raja's ad inside. We thought we'd try them as we do like Indian food.
Ordered the Indulgence menu for two as it appeared to include a large variety of food.
Was good food but very small selection of items and the desert and coffee were not provided as indicated in the menu...service was pitiful as only 2 waiters were in the restaurant and neither appeared to have any wait experience. We were never sure that we received all the items listed in the menu and at $80, nearly $100 after tax felt
that we had been taken... would not recommend this restaurant except for anything but limited take-out

There is a lot of good food in Stratford. Don’t waste your time here unless you really are craving Indian food. Then be prepared to wait. And wait. And wait. It was over an hour between the time we ordered and when we got our food. And 45 minutes before they brought the bill, after asking for it 3 times. Read the poor reviews here. They all say the same thing. Poor service. And have for years. Raja has had plenty of time to fix this. And clearly hasn’t. And the manager’s comment that the food was worth the wait cemented the poor service. Food good? Yes. But not worth 1 hour and 45 minutes of my time.

I reviewed Raja in 2015, and what's changed is that the overall Stratford restaurant scene has improved since then. I still think Raja's Indian food is straightforward - and the atmosphere is pleasant, although six of us felt crammed into our table and kept bumping elbows. The pakora and samosa starters are good. The chutneys are not especially exotic but do offer some variety. The chicken korma had a odd sweetness, but still had good flavor. The daal is yellow lentil and not especially interesting. The lamb saag was quite good. This restaurant is still a family favorite but I'm not sure we will be back next year, given other ethnic places to try.
