Most favoured restaurant for Curry Dinning. Will certainly take my international visitors here for a meal. Vic is a very kind, considerate and friendly fellow for whose friendship I often return.

Description
Raja literally means "King". It is also a term for a monarch or princely ruler. We chose this name due to our aspiration and aim to give our patrons a Royal dining experience through our most superior service, quality food and an experience that you will remember for long. We also offer takeaways and deliveries that are perfect for those not wanting to be pampered like a Royal and instead are just looking to retire to their chambers with delicious food. Our menu offers a wide range of Indian specialties such as Tandoori Prawns, Lamb Handi Meat, Stuffed Capsicum, Chicken Biryani and many more. Come and enjoy our authentic and delicious Indian cuisine here at Raja's Indian Restaurant and Bar. Fulfil your fantasy of sitting atop the Iron Throne by feasting in the spirit of royalty at Raja's Indian Restaurant & Bar. Let our friendly staff take you on a trip throughout the sub-continent with first-class service and mouth-watering Indian favourites. We are located at Unit 9, 309 Botany Road, Golflands, less than a kilometre away from Botany Town Centre Mall.
