The Raj is a restaurant in Edinburgh. At The Raj you can expect extra ordinary tastes and flavours usually found in the palaces and high-homes of India and Bangladesh. The skilled chefs bring the cultures that have come together in Bombay — the Goans, Bengalis, Gujerafis, Mughals and Portuguese — for you now to relish in Edinburgh. Today, The Raj’s menus reflect this ongoing exploration featuring the freshest seafood, chicken, and lamb, as well as plenty to please vegetarian palates. Their menus feature a wide variety of cooking techniques, from slow cooked curries to grills and kebabs as well as tandooris from the clay oven. Their wine list reflects a carefully considered selection of new and old world wines, specially chosen to complement their cuisine, with their sommelier on—hand to provide expert advice. If wine is not your thing, they have a wide range of Indian and artisan beers, whiskies and other exotic spirits, ensuring a perfect partnership for every guest’s palate.
