Enjoyed the food and the service was attentive. Mild medium and wow options available. Access not great for wheelchair users but staff were helpful We'll be back to try more on the menu.Read more
In the past I have never liked spicy hot food but unlike age increasing this dislike it has actually started a "burning" desire to sample more and hotter. So on Wednesday night while Cape Town battened down the hatches, with the wind buffeting our little Yaris and the clouds threatening a downpour, with a reckless feeling in our hearts Dennis and I made our way to The Raj Indian Restaurant (Camps Bay), to meet with family for a meal that left my taste buds tingling and my hand reaching for another glass of wine (you thought I was going to say water). The Raj is in The Promenade on Victoria Rd in Camps Bay and on a good day the ocean view must be spectacular. We were lucky to get parking right outside the restaurant so with the wind beneath the wheelchair we approached the entrance. Two steps presented themselves......no biggie. Dennis prepared to go in backwards. But suddenly the door was flung open (the wind might have helped) to reveal a well-spoken grey-haired persona sporting a neatly tied pony tail. Our waitron. With a wave of his arm he escorted us to the kitchen entrance for a safe and I must say spicy aromatic journey to our table. If there had been a ramp this would not have been necessary and if I had been in my electric wheelchair then this would not have been possible as the kitchen aisle was something like an airplane aisle. Menu's were presented and as I am embarking on a pescovegetarian diet my choice was the Fish Malabhar. A mild curry of fish pieces cooked in a mixture of fresh coconut, chilli, coriander, cumin seeds, somph (fennel), mustard seeds, garlic and curry leaves on a bed of saffron flavoured Basmati rice put the fire inside me and will have me going back for more. Luckily mother body nature was kind to me and there was no mad dash to the Indian washrooms. Thank goodness for that as there are no toilets for the physically disabled. Even though the toilets that they do have are bigger in size than normal, there is little chance of getting a wheelchair in and no hand rails in sight. Our whole party was lost in orbit as Prawn Madras,Chicken Murgh Bhoona, Chicken Murgh Malai Tikka, Subz Mela (mixed veggies cooked in spicy tomato gravy infused with fenugreek and garnished with fresh cream) and Fish Malabhar were all winners, not forgetting the Jeera Pilau, which is Basmati rice sunbaked with cumin seeds. A smorgasbord of curry cuisine marinated in a melange of aromatic hot Indian spices. Need I say more. The atmosphere was cosy; the decor traditionally Indian and sophisticated right down to the starched table napkins and little stands with candles that kept the dishes of food warm. Although it was a wonderful and exotic experience for our taste buds with friendly and efficient service from the pony tailed waiter (didn’t get his name), more needs to be done to improve their disability accessibility. I have the good fortune to not be totally reliant on a wheelchair but can identify with what is still needed in public venues. That said we will be back.Read more
The Raj is situated across the road from the ocean in camps bay. The views are very nice from where you sit and enjoy your meal. The food here is always very delicious prepared. Caters for both vegetarian and non vegetarian Read more
Prawns cooked in a flavourful mild/spicy sauce accompanied with a a superbly cooked rice it was delicious. I was offered a choice as to how spicy my sauce should be. My wife had a delicious chicken korma and rice. A tasty Naan bread accompanied the meal. Excellent and great value for money.Read more
I would recommend people who like vegetarian food to not try this place. Not much option and the available options are not well prepared . Location and decor is good but food is over expensive and horrible without and taste. Nice option for non vegetarians.Read more
