More about Bristol Raj, Bristol

Bristol may have its fair share of Indian restaurants, but if you want the best, you’ll have to head over to Bristol Raj on Alma Vale Road. If you like your food fresh and authentic, it doesn’t get much better than here at this local hotspot, where you’ll enjoy the tantalising flavours of the Indian kitchen without ever setting foot out of Clifton. Perfect for large groups, Bristol Raj is open seven days a week for when you and your crew want to chow down on Bristol’s top Indian dishes.

When dining at Clifton’s Bristol Raj, we highly recommend enjoying one of their fresh, tasty seafood dishes such as the aloo machli (Bengali fish tikka with spicy potatoes), the golda chingri palak (king prawns with spinach, spices, chilli and herbs) or our favourite, the crab bhuna cooked with mustard seeds, curry leaves, green chillies and coriander. As at any good Indian restaurant, there are several delicious vegetarian options, freshly baked naan and classics like lamb korma and chicken vindaloo, plus chef’s specialities including dal masala and kudu gosth, lamb cooked alongside diced pumpkin. Take your tastebuds on an exciting flavour trip at Bristol Raj, but make sure you book your experience in advance!
