We hadn't been for a while and the last time we went it was a bit underwhelming, not great, but not bad either. On this visit I couldn't fault the place. The staff were brilliant, attentive, without being in your face. All of the food was superb ( sundries and meat / king prawn curries ). I noticed a few... More

Sadly the Dostana's food was the same as the Raj. Very average and different curry dishes seem to taste the same. When we went they had packed the tables together so closely there was no privacy when speaking.

Came here expecting to find the Raj! The restaurant interior is beautiful and the food was delicious especially the lamb chops. Definitely going to come again. The view when you sit in the window is lovely especially as you can see the villages Christmas tree. The staff were lovely and very attentive. Deffo recommend.

Can only say that in my opinion ,the food quality is exceptional and certainly on a par with the near by Holdi restaurant. Smaller menu choice than Holdi but still more than enough to choose from.

Just had a takeaway from Dostana (the old Raj), and to be honest could have got better in Tesco. Had visited the old Raj a few years back and was not impressed and when Holdi opened or indeed the Khaja takeaway both knocked spots of it. Having decided to give it a go and thinking it may be cheaper than... More
