Very good food and nice buzz from other tables. Service was neither great nor very friendly, and place itself wasn't the most attractive, but my lamb dish was excellent.

Wells, whilst it isn't inundated with Indian restaurants, has enough to make sure those that exist need to work hard to keep customers returning. I've been eating at the Rajah for 30 years (periodically, not one stupidly long meal) and it has changed over the...More

Read the somewhat mixed reviews, but really fancied Indian food last night. Steep stairs covered in good quality pub carpet to get in and upstairs. Restaurant is fairly small but caters for two's to small groups. Decor is fine, it is what it is supposed...More

This is a bit hidden up stairs but is well worth the visit. Charming service and good food. Have Indian Cobra beer - which is a sort of lager type.

Ordered takeaway of mixed starter, onion bhaji, poppadoms, chicken bhuna, rice and nan. All okay until an unexpected ball point pen in the main course! They sorted by exchanging the main dishes but it was a walk back across Wells and a late evening meal!...More

Modest decor, great prices, great service, great food. A must do if you like a decent curry. The chicken dansak is a personal favourite

We had a meal here and were really pleased with the size and taste of the portions but it was fast food. We were not given enough time to relax before or during the courses. The waiters were lovely and, as said, the food was...More

Visiting Wells for the weekend and fancied a curry as not had one for a few weeks. As this is the only Indian in Wells decided to give it a try. The appearance is off putting as said in other reviews but we didn't let...More

We lived in Wells twenty years ago and used this place often so thought we'd go back during an overnight stay two days ago. Horrible mistake. I've been eating and loving Indian food for about forty years and I can't remember a worse experience. It's...More
