Good menu, tasty, good quality food. Service was poor due to the staff being so busy with tables and take always. Extra serving staff needed.

I and my family came here for a mild curry for me and hotter ones for the rest of them. It was never a problem.

Rather quiet for Saturday evening and had to wait quite a while for food to be served but it was good when it arrived.

Food was perfectly acceptable for a standard curry house. They were struggling to manage restaurant diners and takeaway demand, this impacted service.

We are regular visitors to Indian Restaurants around the country but this was a great disappointment - never again. Wine watery (like watered down) Poppadoms clearly not home made Food very blund - no spice not flavour. We can recommend Ilfracombe Tandori - Hight Street Asian Spice - Ilfracombe

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner here during our stay in Ilfracombe. The food was very well prepared and tasted delicious and the owner/host was very friendly and accommodating.

We usually eat food from the Tandori or Asian Spice but decided to try this place as it's always good to try something new, I wish we had never bothered. All curries ordered (korma, lentil and prawn dansak) were tasteless aside from being hot beyond belief. The popadums and naan bread were straight from the wholesalers and heated up, no... More

This Indian is disgusting the chicken korma was spicy so hot. The sag aloo was a disgusting colour and the potato was rock hard. I never put reviews but never go here it is so bad.

We were so pleased to find the Rajah open again as we have missed eating here. The food is not your average English version of Indian food, it is authentic food that you would find in the various regions of India. Goat curry is amazing so is the Cox's Bazzar, in fact all the "specials" are excellent and different from... More
