A family lunch was had by 3 of us here yesterday and what a stunning lunch it was. The food was sublime and the service impeccable. We can't wait to return

I had read that this place was no longer as good as it used to be, well in that case it must have been fantastic before! We went on a Saturday evening with some friends we hadn't seen for a while. All of us are keen on our food and it was praised equally highly by everyone. We explained our... More

The food is always nice here. Very well presented. Very polite staff although this weekend seemed a little out of sync. Very nice evening although it is quite expensive. I would return again.

Aspirational indian restaurant, service is of a very high standard, good classical décor. Food is of a consistently good standard, traditional meals, competently presented. Having visited this restaurant a number of times over the years the food remains good but not exceptional and this is not a cheap place to eat.

This is our guilty pleasure! Take time to explore the menu and you will discover a whole new world of Indian specialities. The staff work hard to provide a top class service and take great pride in their restaurant. We have been customers here for around 20 years and every visit results in another fine dining experience.

A once impressive contribution to the SE curry scene but no longer. I have no idea if they went through a change of management but it's certainly not the place it once was. They've dumb down the cooking to above average, when it was once very good, which would be sad but tolerable if they hadn't kept the high prices.... More

We have used le Raj for a number of years and always found the style of the meals to be very flavoursome, rather than just hot. The staff are very professional and friendly and the ambiance very relaxing. I would not hesitate recommending it to anyone.

Normally it's the chicken tikka + lamb bhuna + garlic naan all eaten as and when they arrive - together where necessary. Not at Le Raj, here science is used when serving the delicious dishes. Flavours and textures are considered making the food intake delicious and comfortable to the stomach. A new dawn to Curry! Well recommended.

Description
Situated in the rather moneyed Surrey town of Epsom Downs, Le Raj has been something of a pioneer in the world of Indian dining. Among the first to insist on all natural ingredients, this award winning dining room is known for authentic and traditional Asian cuisine done to perfection, crafted by hand from the basics up with dairy produce made on site and fish and meat cut to suit each particular dish. And while Le Raj may not be known for providing ���fast��� food, the wait is well worth it, each dish tailor made for your order so you know its fresh and, if necessary, adapted for your needs. Additional to Indian classics, owner Enam Ali has taken inspiration from his mothers kitchen in Bangladesh, providing a fantastic overview of the home cookery of that region too. Food quality is of the utmost importance but Le Raj is almost as well known for its ambience - relaxed and comfortable but still with an appropriately upmarket look and feel throughout the entirely modern interior.
