About Raj!

Raj is one of the most prestigious restaurants in Essex. It offers customers the highest standards of food and service. The cuisine is highly acclaimed by its regular customers. Our reputation is based on the consistent ability to meet the needs of our discerning customers and the manager, Abdul Ali, is constantly alert and focused to maintain customer satisfaction.

The restaurant, which originally opened in 1994 has had a complete face lift and looks like a totally different venue. Incorporating modern furniture and artworks the new image is totally modern, with our professionally designed lighting system and sympathetic decor a wonderfully relaxed feeling is maintained.

Tandoori Salmon

Zinga King Prawn

Highly recommended dish, whole king prawns, cooked using our special recipe, medium to hot. A captivating Bangladeshi experience.


Great Food, Friendly Atmosphere and Excellent Service!

I have been going to the Raj since it has opened. The food is mouth watering and most of all the quality of food on every visit is always consistent. Of course it helps when the owner him self is a Chef. I would highly recommend the Raj if you are looking for great food with excellent service in Essex.

Always been fantastic!

Been to Raj on many occasions and the food has always been first class. When it is really busy then the service has been a little slow however the staff are always friendly and welcoming  and the food is worth the wait - would highly recommend it to any curry lovers out there!

The best Indian food around!

The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
