A bit apprehensive about an Indian Restaurant in a hotel but I enjoyed the experience very much. Accessed via the buffet restaurant in the hotel but also directly from hotel carpark

Part of the Holiday Inn, the Raj has an outstanding position overlooking the ocean and serves an outstanding curry too. There is even a large terrace to enjoy the sunset. The service is excellent - friendly and interested, but without being overpowering - and the food is top quality. A good, value for money meal (especially with their 10% discount... More

Couldn't fault the food or the service! Our meals were both very tasty and fresh, with our waiter being really friendly and attentive. We had a very pleasant evening and were glad we took previous reviewers advice to visit!

The place was very clean, the staff were very attentive and professional, the prices were extremely reasonable, the the menu was extensive. A 10% discount was given due to being guests of the Holiday Inn Hotel. A nice gesture was complimentary poppadoms and dips whilst waiting for our main meal.
