The Raj Restaurant
Following a successful 30 years in Leith, The Raj has relocated to Blackhall, 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.
Raj has long been a thriving, cosmopolitan and multicultural city with its cuisine bringing together many different culinary inﬂuences in exotic harmony. Regional recipes were shared; new dishes were created; and gradually a unique cuisine emerged— which is now synonymous with India’s ﬁnancial, entertainment and culinary capital.
Back in 1986, the Raj restaurant was created around the idea of bringing the cuisine of this great city to 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.
