Raucous environment. Wine list needs updating to include more interesting choices - distributors can help with this. Spices and flavors are what makes Indian food great ... here they are just OK and ordinary. Chicken Samosas were good; Tandoori Mixed Grill was disappointing.

I enjoyed a nice dinner with a close friend and Raaz provided the perfect locale, close to the water in Jersey City and the right menu options since my friend is a Vegan. I recommend it

I enjoyed the Chicken Kali Mirch which I asked for the spice level to be Hot. I was craving Chicken Keema and though not in the menu they made it for me and it was awesome. Service was great.

The last time we visited a few months ago, the quality of food and service was amazing. Now, things have changed. The Murgh Kali Mirch was sweet, which is contradictory to the name. The tomato soup was a disaster. The only saving grace is the amazing garlic Naan and the appetizer. They must definitely make some drastic changes to improve.

Wonderful Indian food with lots of regional nuances. Very weak wine list by the glass - easy to remedy then this place would be 5 stars!

Choose restaurant since it was walking distance to the hotel. To my surprise their happy hour goes to 8pm. The tandoori chicken salad was excellent! Also enjoyed the shrimp marsala which had a nice kick to it. I do not est at Indian Restaurants too often do staff was very helpful and patient as I had a number of questions! Food and service were both great!

Service was good. Food was ok. We ordered grill mix which I think was very decent. We also ordered butter chicken and I have to say that it was not up to par. Portions were ok size. All in all an average experience.

I've had the lunch buffet and it had a nice variety of food to choose from. I went back for dinner and had the butter chicken. Definitely recommend it. Food is great, decor is nice, outside seating is perfect for a summer night. Had to side eye my waiter though. He had eyes for my girlfriend so that was annoying but she is hot so I couldn't really be too mad. Anywho... definitely recommend this place.

We love Indian food and chose Raaz because it had received good reviews and was a short trip from Hoboken. The food was really outstanding! Everything from appetizers to main course to Naan, all was excellent. Would definitely return.

Had dinner there with out sons (in their twenties). The service and food were terrific. We live in Hoboken and had been looking to have Indian food and we will definitely be back to Raaz now that we found it. All the dishes we ordered were delicious. Outstanding Butter Chicken, Lamb Rogan Josh and two other dishes whose names I've forgotten. One was a mixed vegetable dish and the other a shrimp dish. Our waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. Looking forward to many future meals there.

Took a date there and was thoroughly impress...to the point that I'm writing a review (which I never do). Our server Shivi (I'm probably spelling it wrong) was ridiculously polite and awesome. They have a happy hour on a Saturday that goes to 8 pm, and since we got there at 7:30 he made sure to let us know so we can order the discounted drinks. In fact, he even came around right before 8 to ask if we wanted to put in another round of the discounted drinks for later. I'm not well verse on Indian food and was please with Shivi's recommendation of the Butter Chicken. The Chicken Saag was great too, and even the leftovers I took home were great the next day. Raaz is worth it. I'll definitely be back.

I've been eating Indian food for twenty years and Raaz ranks way up there with some of the best I've ever had. Each dish had its own distinctive flavor and taste. Mint sauce that tasted minty. Fresh raita. Three kinds of chicken kebabs that all tasted different. Yum. We'll be back.

Raaz is a really good North Indian Restaurant in the area. Their service is really good and they even remember what I like! This time although I had the Chicken Phall Curry, man was I on fire! It is a really spicy curry. It was great but I will stick to my favorite Dhaba Murg, with medium spices. Am craving it, but am traveling right now. When I get back will come in for the Dhaba Murg!
