Description: 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.

As a family of 8 with adults and teenage kids, we had one of the best Indian meals. We have eaten a lot around the world and this was authentic and well-prepared. We could tell they have a tandoori oven as the naan were exceptional. Butter chicken, lamb rogenjosh chicken tills Marsala were the standouts. Service was a bit slow but everything else was great. Definitely a place we will return to.

The Raj franchise is a chain of good Indian restaurants in South Africa, although as with all franchise restaurants, some are better than others, this is one of the better ones.
The food and service are good.

The raj offers lovely food over a great beach setting if you don't like spice ask for very mild as even mild has some kick to it, the samosa are lovely and a must try for your starter

Our last meal in Cape Town was partaken here thinking it was a beautiful location but average food and bad service spoiled it. Our tour operator had booked dinner for us(fixed buffet and pre-paid). The food was served at the table. The starter-mini samosas were being served at one end of the table and main course at the other. Staff was sullen and grumpy. There are better option, folks!

Horrible treatment of the best waiter, who is punished because customers ask to be served by him. He does not get the commission and the tip goes to the other waiter! I asked for Nazeer to serve our table as he is always friendly, attentive, knows what I want and when. And the female waitress assigned to our table was sullen and miserable. The manager said no problem. But when we asked to pay, the sullen female waitress was back to take the payment and without delay took the R110 cash tip we left for Nazeer and pocketed it! When I then asked to speak to the manager again, he had no time for me and insisted that "for the past 8 or 9 months Nazeer has been doing this" and that they are busy with disciplinary procedures against him and that I should not get involved in their operations. I have been going to that restaurant for almost 10 years (even before it changed to The Raj Nazeer was working there) and last night was my last visit.
