4.5 from Mystic (24%) on August 20th, 2007 (10 years ago)

The Raj Restaurant on the Shore, 87–91a Henderson Street Leith, EH6 6ED, Edinburgh

Went here with my partners parents & some of their friends & family.

The menu looked quite pricey as I flicked through it but their was an offer; £10.50 for 2 meals & a glass of beer. Their dishes seem a little spicier than most places so keep that in mind when your ordering. I tried to play it safe with the Chicken Madras (medium spicy) .... 2 pints of beer, a glass of water & a whole naan bread later i was finished and sufficiently knackered! Enjoyed every bite though!

The food & service was great & the waiting staff were happy to entertain our hyper active, 6 year old, Liverpudlian cousin, who was more interested in touching all of the decor, than eating her food.

Will definitely be eating here again!

3.5 from toast (17%) on August 10th, 2008 (10 years ago)

The Raj Restaurant on the Shore, 87–91a Henderson Street Leith, EH6 6ED, Edinburgh

We chose this place over Britannia Spice as we think it has more variety in their choices. I started with Jhinga Roti which was delicious and then a nice medium tomatoey chicken dish that I can't remember the name of but I chose after asking the waiter his opinion. The place was busy although they weren't using the back room. The bill for 3 of us (2 beers, 1 wine, 3 starters, 3 Mains, 2 rice and 2 naan, 2pudd and coffee) was £86.00.

1.5 from Watty (12%) on April 29th, 2008 (10 years ago)

The Raj Restaurant on the Shore, 87–91a Henderson Street Leith, EH6 6ED, Edinburgh

Today was the second time I have been to the Raj in the last 6 months. Just before Christmas a group of us had a 3 course meal in there. The food was great. The value for money was great. However the service was terrible. Surly service with hardly noticable thanks yous coupled with the eagerness to remove plates while we were still eating gave a poor 1st impression of the place.

At the time, due to the festive period, we decided not to mention anything.

Back to lunch time today, two of us were seated (not greeted), had menus snatched from our hands and very few manners were observed by the waiting staff. Again, THE FOOD WAS GREAT, but the service let it down very badly. The thing that topped it off for me and has prompted me to write a review is that seconds after the main course plates were taken away (as I was in the process of putting my fork back down) one of the waiters abruptly placed the bill on our table. We hadn't asked for the bill, the restaurant was due to be open for another 30 minutes and he never even asked if we wanted any coffee, dessert or more wine. Obviously no tip was left and a letter of complaint has been sent to the manager. Is it any wonder that everytime I pass by The Raj, it appears empty?

I work in a company that often entertains clients in the area and I can certainly say that I will NOT be going back. A shame really...

1983 prices but with 1893 service!

3 from jilly (11%) on May 13th, 2010 (8 years ago)

The Raj Restaurant on the Shore, 87–91a Henderson Street Leith, EH6 6ED, Edinburgh

Had the Curry-In-A-Hurry Meal for 2 deal last Friday.

Had to say it wasn't out of this world as I've had better, but it wasn't bad either.

The nan bread was small but tasty and I liked the poppadoms plus they throw in a small tub of mango chutney.

The big question is will I go back?

Yes, but it will be many months because there are still tastier curries out there.

Not so great, their was a bad smell, oily food and the atmosphere was awful because of a rough crowd.
