The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the lamb shank and it was very rich and full of flavor. I will certainly be going back.

The Raj has never disappointed me on any of my trips to Cape Town. The curries are stunning and the rogan josh is the best I’ve ever had. Tho, Lynn & Jake adored the place too. The wine list is very reasonably priced. The location...More

Just set back from the beach,the Raj has very recognisable menu of all the usual favourites. We have eaten in and taken away and both times the food was top draw. Friendly service accompanied by quality cooking and ingredients make this a must try.

The Raj is a good curryhouse, serving up fresh, tasty curries (excellent breads) in an airy room by the beach. It's deservedly popular, and we had an enjoyable evening there. Great service. Would recommend the malabar fish curry, and the vegetarian dishes, particularly chana masala.

A wonderful view of the beach. Sadly the food had a certain sameness, flavours seemed as if from the same packet although the spinach was good.

The restaurant has a nice setting facing the beach. Service ok but we poured our own wine throughout the meal. Main course we had prawn curry. The prawns were mushy and sauce was the same as our chicken curry sauce. Shame.

Upmarket, yet relaxed INDIAN restaurant on the Camps Bay strip with Authentic North Indian cuisine served up by Indian Chefs from Delhi with years and years of experience. We are currently serving from this location for the past 7 years. The restaurant opens up on to the view of the Camps Bay beach and is a brilliant venue for a large group of friends, a romantic date or a even a business meeting. We offer a wide selection of vegetarian curries and some Jain & Vegan Options too. We are also Halaal-friendly. We have a full bar - Wine; beer; whiskies; spirits; craft beers and fresh cocktails of the season.
