Excellent environment, service and food. All staff were very efficient and helpful. Very reasonable prices and you can take your own wine. I will definitely go back again.

Absolutely brilliant. Staff are very attentive and not in your face. Polite and not slow service Happy to accommodate your choice if you don't like a particular ingredient in a dish. Definitely going back soon.

I have eaten here a handful of times and will definitely be returning. The food is excellent and dishes are reasonably priced. Added bonus is the fact you can bring your own booze if you like and you won't be charged any corkage for the privilege!

A family of 7, arrived Friday night at 6.15, no one in the restaurant but were told we would have to leave by 7.15. Food was very average, lacking spices and flavour expected of an Indian meal. Wouldn't revisit.

We visited The Raj for a family dinner. The owner was warm and welcoming. Our food arrived promptly and hot. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, especially the chicken and lamb dishes, and would not hesitate in visiting again soon

Have eaten here quite a few times and always had a good experience. However, this time we ordered a takeaway and were really disappointed. Watery Sauce, very little flavour. Very sub-standard. Also they don't deliver on a weekend which I also find a chore!

Just finished yet another fantastic meal from here and realised I've never written a review! We have been customers of The Raj for years and can honestly say we have never had a bad meal! Very friendly service when we dine in, wonderful food and lovely, clean surroundings. It's also a BYOB establishment which means you can eat out taking... More

Good service despite our large group, great food too, no corkage charge so you can take your own alcohol to keep the costs down, there is a small Sainsbury store opposite to stock up!

We popped in on a Wednesday evening without booking and has the best meal I've had in a long time. The food here is incredible and the staff even better. Always the warmest and friendliest atmosphere. I can't sing the praises of The Raj enough. A must eat of Chippenham.
