There is a good reason why The Raj is usually busy, the quality of the food and service. The banquet nights are particularly good value. There is plenty of dishes to choose from and this is a good place to eat Indian food if not everyone in your party likes chilli hot food. There are many well spiced but mild... More

On our annual visit to Faversham we again ordered takeaways from the Raj. We ordered by phone and arranged to pick up 45 minutes later as it was a big order for 9 people. We only had a few minutes to wait which was excellent. The meal we had when we got home was excellent and enjoyed by everyone. We... More

Asked for left overs to be put in containers to take home but all was mixed in one and looked disgusting! Won't... More

Visited The Raj on my first visit to Faversham. In all, a really enjoyable experience with freshly prepared Thursday banquet of starter / main / side / rice or naan all for £10.95. As I am not a lover of sides, I was permitted to replace this for a rice (nice to see flexibility !). I would certainly recommend this... More

I have been here a few time and visited on Hops Festival and have to say very poor service. Food was poor and I did think trying to fit in people who have not been before and I will say the food was so bad and service sooooo slow I will not visit again. Other options in Faversham including curry... More

It has been a while since I have reviewed the Raj. I usually go on either a Tuesday or Thursday evening when it is banquet night as this gives the best value. I have noticed that the portions seem to have got a little smaller BUT there is still a lot of good food and I still leave some as... More

Another delicious banquet night at The Raj where the food and service never fails to impress. Having tried all of the curry houses in Faversham, this is the best!

A lovely little restaurant with fabulous food which is very reasonably priced. They have a banquet night on Tuesday althogh even when we've been we've ended up ordering from the menu as there are some favourite dishes that aren't always part of the deal. The portions are good and not obscene, more quality than quantity which we prefer.
