We ordered a takeaway and the food was excellent, reasonably priced with very, very generous portions. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. I feel desperately sorry for anyone catering in Bodmin at the moment as getting into town is a complete nightmare due roadworks and closed off streets with confusing diversion signs. I really hope this does not mean the... More

Good vibe, and good food. All helped by a great offer, starter, main, and rice or naan for under a tenner. Would definitely re-visit. Only downside for me was the drinks were a little too pricey.

A very good Indian restaurant. I wanted a chicken and spinach medium curry ,which wasn't on the menu,but the waiter assured me that it was fine . When my meal arrived it was one of the best I had tasted.

We visited as a family on a recent trip to Cornwall based upon a recommendation from a member of staff in the local Sainsburys. We were not disappointed, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly. we dined fairly early on Friday night so the restaurant was relatively quiet and lacked atmosphere however I have no doubt that a...

Visited for a birthday meal and decided to go here as it's close to home and not too much hassle. The resteraunt is clean, modern and has an expensive look and feel to it. The staff were brilliant to accommodate to the needs of children who were fussy eaters and just wanted regular English food! The food was lovely, really... More

Food here is always good. Have been here on many occasions. Service is usually fantastic but was let down tonight. There is a new server with an attitude, rolling his eyes at me when I asked for clean cutlery. However despite this, curry was as good as ever. Love the Nann bread!

The greeting was very friendly! The waitress asked me if I wanted a drink, I asked her for a Gin and Tonic she said would you like a pint! I should have said yes. Any ways the food was very good, they were having trouble with their card machine so we paid cash! I would recommend this restaurant!

On my own, but Viraj is always welcoming and I was sure of good service and food. I was not disappointed. This visit I declined the poppadums and dips as I struggled to finish my meal last time. The service is efficient but not rushed and as before the dishes were delicious - Tandoori Mix followed by a Balti and... More

If you like Indian/Asian food you'll love the Viraj. We are frequent diners here and when friends/family visit us a meal at the Viraj is always requested! Very busy at times and I'd recommend booking. Excellent takeaways also available. In our opinion one of the best Indian restaurants anywhere. Good choices for any vegetarians out there. A must for a... More

Was due to meet with Family at The Taj Mahal, St Austell but got cancelled. We were still craving a curry to booked Viraj last minute. The atmosphere was buzzing and the restaurant a lot more pleasing inside. The glassware and crockery was very clean and the waiter very attentive. We decided to use the £9.95 mid week deal, starter,... More
