Welcome to the Raj
Welcome to this the new web site of the Raj Indian Restaurant, which has been serving those Bristolians who love a really tasty authentic Indian curry since it's opening in 1981.
Whilst the restaurant has always been busy, the family who own it have always strived for constant improvement, without spoiling the core values that have led to it's ongoing popularity.
In the restaurant business it is usual to have a constant change in staffing, but the Raj has always employed professional staff who are passionate about the food and see it as a career. They make a point of getting to know their customers and always have a cheery welcome to diners whether they be regulars of the Raj going back years or those coming for the first experiece.
Our restaurant has been given a 5 star rating by the food hygiene authorities. The restaurant is fully air conditioned throughout.
We would like to make it clear that the Raj has no connection with any other restaurant, regardless of name similarities.

We have a brand new menu for 2013 - The Night Owl Menu. This new menu is a special deal primarily aimed at theatre goers who whould like to enjoy a nice Indian meal after a show.

Bristol Old Vic
We are just a few doors down from Bristol's historic Old Vic Theatre on King Street. The theatre has been undergoing a huge redevelopment in recent years which will be fully completed in 2016 in time for their 250th anniversary. The theatre is open for business again and although the Georgian auditorium appears little different, the stalls and gallery have been raised to improve sightlines improving the experiece for the audience. For more information about the redevelopment and the programme of productions visit their web site here. To make a night at the theatre truly complete, pop into the Raj before or after the performance for a bite to eat.
