Decent starters but main dishes need to improve. They have taken to serving their Balti dishes in a bucket rather than a bowl - didn't think too much about that but the contents of what was served up was pretty abysmal. The lamb bhuna was like a mild Rogan - and was totally lacking any flavour or taste - more... More

Got recommended by few friends that have visited before, and I was not disappointed. The waiters were very prompt and the service was exceptional. The food was delicious and hot. The pricing was really good.

We've been using the Raj Garden for over 15 years and always enjoyed the food and service. However, the food is not as enjoyable as it used to be. The meat, especially the chicken on the last 3 occasions has been hard and dry. It's as if it's been cooked in advance, reheated to order and then covered in sauce.... More

Went here with two colleagues after being recommended by a member of the hotel staff nearby. Smart looking place with pleasant decor but looks did deceive. In all my years of being a big fan of eating Indian food on occasion, the dishes here were so sub standard it would have satisfied only those without tastebuds. First time I've ever... More

My daughters choice to go here from her 11th birthday meal, and we were not let down, the curries were wonderful with portion size not an issue, the service was brilliant and the cost a good 30% cheaper than other "award winning" Asian restaurants in the Watford area. So f you have not tried this please do as you will... More

Went for the Sunday Buffet, good value and very good wervice. Onion Bajis were crispy good vegetarian dishes and the dishes were replenished as required. There were about 30 people eating and they managed to keep up with supply. Encouraged to try all dishes and eat plenty. Would probably go later than 3 next time to give full justice to... More

A frond found this off the beaten track restaurant a few months ago when trying to get round a traffic jam. We have now visited 3 times and each time found the food very good value and the service top notch. Okay so it's not at the posh end fitments wise but the busy buzzing restaurant tells you more than... More
