“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

I was taken to the Ancient Raj by friends in Canterbury and was blown away by how good it was here. I have never been one for Indian food but really enjoyed it here, there is something for everyone. The food was great with loads of choices ranging from mild to very hot and they also do deliveries. The staff were all lovely, friendly and helpful and the atmosphere in the restaurant is great. I will definitely be visiting again very soon!!

“Was excellent... now seems to be just OK”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

We've eaten at the Ancient Raj several times in recent years and have loved the great flavours and textures. However, on the last two visits, we've been really disappointed - just not the same quality. Some dishes have been sloppy, flavours haven't been so special and distinct, poor excuse for an onion bhaji, lamb not so tender... Has the chef changed?
