I ordered a lamb tikka start and a chicken korhai with pilau rice main. The start was okay, certainly not one if the best I have tasted, the korhai... More

Just had the Asahara. Magnificent. Worth a visit and always good to deviate from the tried and trusted.

Having been to the Raj before and had a superb meal, I thought I'd try it again. The waiting staff were frantic even though it wasn't busy and one waiter was very rude. The food was the biggest disappointment. We both ordered different dishes, yet they came out exactly the same. Watery bland and tasteless stewed meat. Not nice

The restaurant was very clean service very good. The food was freshly hot and tasty. The one thing that struck me our table was wiped clean after every course, never had that before. When I return to visit family at Easter guess where we,re going for our curry.

My wife and family eat out fairly often and have been going to the Raj regulary for some years and I thought it was time for me to write some honest opinions. The food is absolutely amazing and authentic Indian food and to be honest is way up there among the best I have have ever had with a good... More

Always feel so welcomed here, such polite staff and very good service. Great for couples, great for going with a group of friends or family. Food has always been excellent every time we have visited and bring your own alcohol is an added bonus! Also regularly get take aways from here too which are very reasonably priced for how great...

Just visiting Chippenham for the weekend, and as it was a Friday afternoon, we booked a table for two, at 18.30, via the Raj website. It gave no immediate acknowledgement! We showed up at the restaurant and explained that we had tried to book via the web site, but received a dismissive look. They found us a table, however, with... More
