A nice little Indian restaurant tucked away in Epsom. It is fine dining and suitable for the special occasions. Definitely a go-to place to impress.

It's always an eagerly awaited pleasure to visit Le Raj for a meal. From the impeccibly dressed dining area with carved wood panelling, great ambience, very attentive and polite staff to exquisite foods made with fresh, organic ingredients. Would recommend you book well in advance to avoid disappointment

This restaurant used to be my favourite Indian, as the food here is a cut above the rest. However, last night they lost a customer who has been coming here with my family/partner for years. The service we experienced was the worst from any restaurant in years. It was inconsistent and impersonal, having multiple waiters serve us throughout the night.... More

Had table for 4 - first impression was overcrowded dining area then after a wait a succession of waiters took order, delivered drinks then food without a smile or word of greeting. Food had great descriptions but taste did not match and was overpriced. Accept they were busy but we were putting glasses on floor to make room for food... More

Booked the restaurant through OpenTable two days in advance and got the standard email confirmation. The evening was supposed to be a surprise treat for some friends, and they were not disappointed. The surprise however was no table, no booking, and no apology despite us displaying the OpenTable confirmation email to them. Then the staff became downright rude, blaming OpenTable... More

Our friend booked by open table but when we got to the restaurant they had no knowledge of our booking. Instead of saying they were really sorry and trying to accommodate us they said they were fully booked and basically that was tough. I couldn't believe their attitude. We had travelled quite a way to be there and were really... More

Table booked and ready on time, staff were there to greet us and take coats and show us to our table. Service was good and food was excellent. A great Saturday night out was had by all and we look forward to returning soon.

My wife and I went for a rare night out and we hadn't been for a few years. To be honest we were underwhelmed. The service was not great. We had to wait half an hour for our table (despite having booked) and weren't asked if we wanted to order a drink. The waiter then forgot one of our dishes.... More

Visited Friday night with friends, the meal certainly didn't disappoint, we were met as we entered and asked if we wanted a drink pre dinner. The meal itself was lovely as usual, ok some of the waiters could be more cheerful, but we were well looked after, overall a great evening but a tad expensive.

Description
Situated in the rather moneyed Surrey town of Epsom Downs, Le Raj has been something of a pioneer in the world of Indian dining. Among the first to insist on all natural ingredients, this award winning dining room is known for authentic and traditional Asian cuisine done to perfection, crafted by hand from the basics up with dairy produce made on site and fish and meat cut to suit each particular dish. And while Le Raj may not be known for providing ���fast��� food, the wait is well worth it, each dish tailor made for your order so you know its fresh and, if necessary, adapted for your needs. Additional to Indian classics, owner Enam Ali has taken inspiration from his mothers kitchen in Bangladesh, providing a fantastic overview of the home cookery of that region too. Food quality is of the utmost importance but Le Raj is almost as well known for its ambience - relaxed and comfortable but still with an appropriately upmarket look and feel throughout the entirely modern interior.
