Living near Temple Meads this is the best Indian by far without going into the city centre. Brilliant menu and very reasonably priced. I've eaten early: 6-6.30pm midweek and found the restaurant very quiet but the service and food has been great each time. (Not been in on a busy Friday or Saturday).

My partner and I thought we would try this Restaurant a few weeks ago. We arrived around 6pm on a Friday. When we walked in we were seen by 2 different members of staff. Neither of them spoke. We then walked up to the bar. We stood at the bar a couple of minutes. A member of staff then said... More

This is undoubtedly the best Indian I have ever eaten at. To put this into perspective we don't even live in Bristol, but the treck to this place is well worth it. Food is really well priced, we have never had a bad meal here, service is excellent and the actual restaurant itself is lovely. There is loads of choice... More

We have been attending the raj mahal since our daughter was newborn. We even had her first birthday here she is now 7. Normally the manager is so friendly and staff are welcoming. Today we attended for Mother's Day. Service was absolutely poor. Staff were miserable. Buffet wasn't great either. Food is normally beautiful. I feel the passion for the... More

Visited with our daughter who lives nearby. We all had different things off the menu and we all enjoyed our meals. We had an excellent wine (an Australian Shiraz). The cost for two courses each, and the wine was £66 without tip for the 3 of us. Excellent price - will definitely head back here when we are next in... More

Top class food at the Raj Mahal, but the service has always been more patchy. On our latest visit the service was so poor it'll be some time before we go back, being actively ignored while staff chat at the bar is not my idea of good customer service. It's a shame as the chefs obviously know what they're doing... More

Indian food is one of y favorites so I don't just eat anywhere, I was impressed with there food and value for money. The only reason it's not 5 star is because it wasn't the nicest if ever had

Just came from the restaurant, celebrating my niece 21st birthday. The wait for the food was about 45 minute for the starter and a further 50 minutes for the main. While waiting for the courses , I tried ordering a few drinks, after a 5 minute wait, I was told by a very rude barman that he had told me... More

Visited Raj Mahal City on a Friday evening with a booking for 7 people. The service was very good, immediately seated and drinks order taken. Drinks arrived promptly as did the food, the curry was very good.
