When we opened the doors of Le Raj 26 years ago I had a vision. This was to not only to be the best but also to show the world the true heights that spice cuisine can reach. Since then the humble curry has been transformed and is now treated as an equal by all other cuisines. I would like to believe that Le Raj has played a role in achieving that change in the curry industry as a whole. At Le Raj we pioneered the use of natural instead of artificial colours. Each of our chefs is specialized in making only fresh and organic produce, as a result of which every dish is a signature dish. Now I have designed and renovated my restaurant with you all in mind and given it a grand drawing room look, which I have the wholehearted belief will help you enjoy the total sensational dining experience.

All our dishes follow a philosophy of healthy cooking based on traditional methods and a chronological order using the right measure of farm fresh ingredients to create Le Raj signature dishes.

We both felt comfortable eating in the restaurant with the all the covid measures in place, easily done midweek when the restaurant only had a handful of diners. This said it was good to get out and enjoy a fabulous meal at this fine Indian restaurant.

We would have given 5 stars but every time we visit this lovely restaurant we have a very long wait for food,
If you are happy to sit & enjoy drinks then we highly recommend a visit.

Everything was good but my prawns were rather chewey and didn’t taste very nice.
On the other hand service, attention and the other meals were all fine. The restaurant itself is terrific.

A very agreeable meal on new years eve. Restaurant not as full as previous years, maybe this is because Le Raj opened their doors earlier this year to cater more for families, this meant the normal 9 O'clock manic rush didn't materialise. The service on this occasion was good, but the food as always was very good.

Le Raj delivers every time! The food is fresh tasting and inventive with spices and combinations. The staff were attentive and friendly. A little find in Epsom that could stand shoulder high with any west end restaurant and give them a run for their money

Excellent Indian restaurant that has a refined palate. You can still get a hot hit if required as the Naga chicken tikka proves, this starter takes no prisoners. But overall the food is like the restaurant, sophisticated and elegant.

Le Raj always delivers fresh clean tasting innovative dishes - you will struggle to find stock Indian favourites on their menu. This then makes you read the descriptions and choose outside of your comfort zone & you are unlikely to regret your choice. The service is always friendly & professional. High quality food befitting of a London restaurant in Surrey and at a reasonable cost.

Mid-week and the restaurant fairly quite with only a few tables occupied. So no surprise the service was very good. Food was excellent, the naga chilli chicken starter was fiery hot but succulent and both the main courses which followed were equally as good.

A cut above your regular Indian.
Le Raj has a delicious menu, with many dishes you won't get elsewhere, and the classics, but taken to a new level.

Four dined on the hottest day of the year so far, this was probably why the restaurant was on the quite side. However with the kitchen being a little less hectic than normal produced four meals of the highest order.

Excellent quality meal served in comfortable surroundings. The service has improved over the years but on occasions can still be a bit hit or miss especially if the restaurant is on the busy side.

We’ve been to le raj a few times with friends. The food is generally very good but the dessert this time was absolutely dreadful for both my husband and myself. Service was ok a little slow but not the end of the world. I do find it very overpriced for what it is though.

Indian fine dinning in Epsom. An excellent three courses was had by my party. I started with the Naga chicken tikka which was refreshingly hot and spicy, the chicken main was perfectly cooked whilst the Pistachio Kulfi pudding was rich and creamy as it should be.

We went at a lunch time. We were the only customers. So the ambience was very quiet, but with nice background music. The waiters were very nice. The food was good, but have had better. Quite pricey.

Le Raj never fails to deliver in food quality. It’s been said over and over but this restaurant would sit alongside the best in London and give them a run for their money. The dishes are fresh & innovative although if you look hard in the extensive menu you can find an old favourite or too. Service is efficient and friendly enough without being intrusive.

The appearance and the presentation is excellent but the quality of the food is very poor and a dramatic change since my last visit. The meat is very tough, served cold and the curries are all the same and taste unpleasant. What a shame.

Food as expected was very good, my wife went for a Beghan Lamb whilst I went for a chicken dish that uses only the under fillets of the chicken. Heed the chilli references as some of the dishes can be quite feisty. All in all another good meal taken in a restaurant that is very pleasing to the eye.

We did not go as were called by the restuarant after we made the booking to say they did not have a table for us at that time and we could just turn up later at 8.45pm onwards and they would see if they could fit us in. Such a shame as we were looking forward to this

Quiet Sunday evening service and confronted with an extensive menu with the latest curry options available decided to go old school and order dishes that have been the mainstay of Indian restaurants over the years. Both dishes were excellent, just proves that every once in a while the old style curries are definitely worth revisiting.

Overall we had an enjoyable evening but I’m not convinced this is everything it’s advertised as. The staff were friendly and the food was good relative to the restaurants in the area. That said this restaurant does pitch itself as being something above the norm. That’s true for the immediate area but there are much better Indian restaurants in London and for not a great deal more money.
