This past weekend we visited sun city for a family getaway. Overall visit was ok. The highlight was definitely our dinner at The Raj. The restaurant was literally pumping. Food was brilliant and the service was exceptional. They even have hookahs available, which made our...night more festive. Raj, thanks for a wonderful evening. Johnathan and Meghan. We will visit you in Joburg.More

The Raj in Sun City lives up to the name of the brand. The food was excellently prepared and well presented

My family visited Sun City for New Years Eve. The stay was ok, but the greatest treat was visiting The Raj for the first time. We were referred to the restaurant by friends from both Cape Town and Johannesburg, who are regulars at this famous...Indian restaurant. Well, I must say the experience from entering to leaving was absolutely exceptional. The food was on another level of what I have ever tasted. We had starters, mains and had to cram in some dessert. I am proud to call myself a patron of this restaurant. My 8 year old son, virtually liked his plate of butter chicken. The next morning we noted the South Indian morning special. Oh my word, another taste explosion. Spoilt for choice we had one of each offering. Raj, you are my new home of Indian food. Your food and service totally excelled our families expectations and taste buds. You rock. We will see you in Joburg going forward. The Saunders family.More

As good as fine Indian curry is going to get! Wonderful, wonderful curry dishes that are superb. We have previously visited this restaurant to great satisfaction and came back this time round for another yummy treat. Not the cheapest restaurant, but not madly expensive either....Totally worth the price as the food is stellar. Service was good and the meals arrived fast and hot. No going wrong for great Indian cuisine at this restaurant. Highly recommended! Delicious!More

The food at The Raj was absolutely excellent! Prepared by people who know how to prepare curry and basically have curry flowing through their veins! It is my view that when speciality food is prepared by the people from that country of origin, there is...nothing to beat it. I just wish I had a bigger stomach so that I could sample every single curry! Prawn masala and the lamb sublime. Samosas divine. Kefir delicious. Thank you. Raj.More

We decided to use this restaurant as we had 2for1 vouchers. Arrived mid afternoon the restaurant was empty so we could choose a table with a view of the beautiful gardens service was faultless fast but not obtrusive food was excellent and the strength of...the curries excatly as requested the wine list was small but reasonably priced. A very pleasant experienceMore

Would like to say the food was amazing but we didn’t even get around to ordering food as the service was that bad we ended up waking out!!!

Hardik is overwhelmed and pathetic. He does not know how to run a restaurant and how to treat customers. Throwing food on the table that is not even a dish that was complete. Not what I expect from the Raj. Bitterly disappointed

About R140 per person of you are only having mains... decently priced. Portions definitely sufficient.
