We loved our visit to Rajah. We were first introduced to Indian food in 1999 and have loved it ever since. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the food is amazing. We started with pappadums and assorted toppings. The Onion Bhajis were the size of cricket balls! Three to four times the size of what we get back home.... More

This was a first time visit to the Rajah. I couldn't be more impressed with the decor, atmosphere and fantastic professional service. The Balti Chicken Massallah was a brightly coloured dish with a smooth and outstanding flavour. The King prawns were tender and a delight to the tastebuds. All seasoned to perfection. However the high light to our meal was... More

I am normally not a big fan of Indian food, but go with my wife who is truly a lover of both Indian and Thai cuisines. We both gave Rajah 5 stars all around for the excellence of the food and the service as well. If in Inverness you must try it!

I went for a meal here with an old friend who lives locally and recommended this as one of the better Indian Restaurants in Inverness. Service was very prompt and we both order Lamb Jhalfrezi. The food was excellent, served with pilau rice and Keema Nan. I was surprised just how cheap the meal with drinks was less than £45... More

It's a basement restaurat where you get decent indian food. Don't know the balti kitchen so it was first, was nice but I can't make the difference to indian food. All in all was nice and service was friendly. Nothing remarkable but okay.

In short, me and my wife had dinner in this restaurant, the food was average but the service was just unprofessional and it left a bad taste. Through the whole time we felt that the workers wanted us finished and gone, they came a couple of times asking if they can take the plates even though the restaurant was empty... More
