As ever a very good meal and welcoming atmosphere. We had not been for some time, unusually for us, but not because we didn’t want to, so it was great to resume what should again be a fairly regular habit.
Always a top night at the Dil Raj .......... dinner and drinks for 8 ......... excellence all round! Recommend the North Indian Chilli Chicken ...... delicious
We had a lovely evening here for my friends birthday, lovely food as always & friendly staff. Very busy initially & we were the last ones to leave! Will definitely be booking again!
we have always had excellent meals and excellent service at the Dil Raj and this occasion was no exception even though it was Christmas Eve and quite busy
Went for a birthday meal with parents and partner. The staff were extremely welcoming and polite. First time we’ve been and it was very clean and welcoming. The waiting staff were extremely attentive no waiting for food or being rushed, which makes a nice change. The food was deliciously well made and presented. Had an amazing experience and definitely will become our “go too” Indian despite it being a 30 minute drive ( genuinely that good) 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊
Booked in a table of two with my client based on positive feedback on Monday 27th 19:30. I have to say that the food was of a very high standard and genuinely delighted by the quality, taste. The welcome and service was something that I felt was very disappointing, I felt the greeter couldn't care less if we were there or not. There was a missed selling opportunity as we were not offered a dessert menu, after our meal we had another drink and then another member of staff came and gave us the bill despite the fact that we had not requested it and intended on another drink, this was 21:20 and we were the only customers left. I would say that they wanted us gone and this is how we felt. Based on the experience and lack of welcome and how we were made to feel, I will not be returning despite the quality of the food - The food was a 6 star rating the welcoming was barely a 2 star
Service was outstanding. Food was good but not amazing . We went for my daughters birthday after hearing great things about the place . Couldn’t fault the staff . Great for families. We had ages from 11 to 45 . Food was good but after reading the website we thought it would be outstanding too . Would recommend though .
Food was great, Service was poor. We were ushered straight through to our table without being offered any drinks in the bar, then we were promptly ignored for 35 minutes without being asked for our drinks order or given a menu to read. But the manager did find time to have a photo taken with a large , loud & vulgar mouthed party sat at the next table. We were just on line ready to book a table with another restaurant & leave, when we were finally asked for our drinks order & given a menu to look at. It felt like the staff were far more concerned with looking after the large party at the expense of everyone else who was clearly far less important!
Always friendly helpful staff & lovely food, and the kids first experience of authentic Indian food!! They even enjoyed the onion bahji and the spicy sauce on the pickle tray 😆
The staff were very pleasant and welcoming. The food was very good. They kept asking us if everything was ok and you our liking. The environment was good if a little cool. Overall a very good experience.
