Huge thanks to all the staff for another fantastic charity event to support Citizens Advice Basingstoke. Over the last week we have had so many positive comments about the friendly service and great tasting food. We are already being asked for the date of the next evening.

Despite the satnav it felt counter-intuitive to be driving up a winding road in a housing estate on the outskirts of Basingstoke! Have no fear! At the end of the road is an admittedly anonymous looking indian restaurant. Inside - and this was a Citizens Advice Fund raising event - it was buzzing so atmosphere+++ Service given the numbers -... More

The last ever time we will order from this place! We ordered our meal at 19:00 on a Saturday, I fully expect to have to wait and the delivery time of 19:45 was fine. Shortly after this increase to 20:00, again no major issue. However we had to then call at 20:15, 20:30,20:45 every time to be told he is... More

Have visited the Raj many times over the past 10 - 15 years, and have been impressed every time. The staff are fantastic and extremely helpful, the food is cooked to perfection, and the service you receive is warm and welcoming......superb as always! Looking forward to the next visit.

Visited For Charity night buffet for £11.95, eat as much as you like. First disappointment was that poppadoms cost extra. Second one was the lack of choice for vegetarians compared with the number of meat options. There was live music.......a band which was too loud so difficult to hold a conversation.

Thank for coming to our charity event yesterday, we hope you enjoyed the evening. It is our mistake that we don't make it clear that papadoms and condiments cost extra, and that we weren't able to provide more variety in our buffet options. In retrospect, regarding the live entertainment, we agree that the band were at a volume that could... More

Six family members walked here from town to celebrate our daughter's birthday, it being some considerable time since we had eaten at an Indian (actually , Bangladeshi- I asked the manager). We have eaten here a number of times over the years and we were not disappointed either with the food , service or air conditioning, essential since this is... More

Such a shame that the Raj of Black Dam isn't in a more central location in Basingstoke as it would clean up! Very good food for the most part, the lamb can be hit and miss so order chicken if you can!

We had a great meal for 10 of us. Beer kept in flowing. Food was very good. Great portions. Only downside is the entrance (rear) could do with smartening up.

After not visiting the Raj for a while we were looking forward to going back. The service was terrible, extremely slow and uninterested staff. The food was mediocre after an unacceptably long wait. Hair in one of the dishes. Definitely won't be returning. Such a shame.

No kerb appeal however once inside, a spacious and comfortable restaurant. Good tasty food with excellent service and definitely value for money. Will certainly return.
