About The Raj - Belfast

Looking for the king of curries in the southern reaches of Belfast city? Look no further than The Raj, an Indian restaurant par excellence prominently located on Lisburn Road in Balmoral. The kitchen at the Raj is stocked primarily with local and Northern Irish produce, with a considered sprinkling of fresh, exotic spices. Eschewing any artificial additives, each dish on offer at The Raj represents Indian and Pakistani cuisine at its peak. The Raj curries cover all the classic bases, while the house specialty Raj biryani, with your choice of lamb, prawn, mixed meat or vegetarian, is a local favourite. The tandoori specialties can’t be missed, and the chef will even whip up your favourite culinary obscurity if you can’t find it on the menu.
