We visited the Raj after looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor as we were not familiar with restaurants in the Wigan area. We have eaten indian food in many places some of which are of an exceptional standard and which we have visited on many occasions over many years. The Raj failed to live up to the reviews on...

Visited Raj this evening with friends, one over from Thailand who had never tasted Indian food before. She absolutely loved it, we had a fabulous meal. We chose 5 starters to share between 4 of us: pepper stuffed with chicken, pepper stuffed with lamb, onion bhajis , vegetable samosas and salmon tikka from the specials menu. Then the 4 of... More

We have been going to the Raj nearly every week for the past 12 years and haven't found Indian food in this area to beat it. The staff are friendly and always willing to advise on any dishes that you are not familiar with. If you want a dish 'spicing up' or 'less spicy', just ask when ordering. It can... More

I got told this was the best Indian in Wigan - INCORRECT. I ordered Rogan Josh and received a Bhuna, also got 1x garlic naan instead of 2x. Tried to call and couldn't get through so had to just deal with it. It was swimming in grease, an absolute awful meal but inside the takeaway staff are lovely.

We have been visiting the Raj for many years and have always enjoyed our visits and always championed this restaurant. The service has always been excellent and the food good too. In recent times over the last couple of years, we did however feel that the food quality became a little inconsistent and wasn't the usual high standards. This coupled... More
