The Raj Indian Restaurant can be found in the peaceful suburb of Waterfall, in the Waterfall Corner Shopping Centre, on the corner of Maxwell Drive & Country Lane.
This exciting establishment brings to Johannesburg, the taste of traditional Indian flavours and aromas. The chefs are all authentic Indians so you know you're getting the "real thing"! This is a wonderfully quaint and romantic restaurant where you can enjoy intimacy and privacy. The soft lighting adds to the atmosphere and the relaxed tones of conversation lend a pleasing quality to the mood.
The food is spicy, delicious and very traditional with the menu offering a large variety of authentic Indian cuisine including such dishes as Tikka Masala, Vindaloo, Khorma and Bhoona. All curries are available from Mild to Hot and each curry includes a selection of meats to choose from. A comprehensive vegetarian menu is available and house specialities range from seafood dishes to lamb dishes.
A selection of breads, rice and briyanis are also provided and recommended for use as a means to break the burn! One of the traditional breads that must be tried is the "naan". Ancient Persians invented the side opening clay oven called the "tandoor" which was the forerunner to India's tandoor, an upright earthen ware spherical oven with a narrow neck on the top. Fired at the bottom with charcoal, a flat disc of dough is placed onto its inner walls and cooks in seconds. The cooked bread is then lifted off with the help of skewers. These "naans" are cooked fresh "to order"!
The service is efficient and friendly and the food is undeniably the best tasting, best quality Indian food available in Johannesburg.
You will not be disappointed with your "Indian" experience at The Raj Restaurant. The only disappointment will be that you didn’t visit us sooner.
