The restaurant was unable to seat us. They were overwhelmed and did not even know we had made a reservation.

Great food and outstanding service. Meal portions were very large and we all left feeling stuffed.

This was an almost comically bad experience. I ordered a coke and we went to the all you can eat buffet. I never received my coke and never again saw a waiter until we got our check. We never got our water glasses filled. We found half of the food items out by our second visit to the buffet. The rice pudding was spoiled!!!! Yuck. Food that was available was unremarkable or not very good. Very disappointed.

The food and restaurant were OK - but unremarkable. I would not avoid it, but given the choice, I'd try another place before going back.

We had a wonderful meal with a bottle of wine for under $100. If it were in my neighborhood, I would be a regular.

Rajaji has been a noteworthy restaurant over many years. I dined there several times in years past and was delighted to find it is still excellent. I had lamb korba. At my request I wanted a dish only slightly spicy. This was perfect. The service and concern for the diner were outstanding. I was glad to be back!

I have been dining at the Rajaji for more than 20 years , whenever business or pleasure takes me to DC. An Indian colleague introduced me to this restaurant. The food is authentic and well prepared. The breads are baked fresh, on site. The service is warm, courteous and professional. The pace is relaxed - geared towards dining rather than getting you in and out in a hurry. Enjoy a Taj Mahal beer or two. Prices are very reasonable by DC standards.

Our party of six included four who have never dined in and Indian restaurant before. They came away raving about the food and the service.

The restaurant is conveniently located across the street from the Woodley Park Metro Stop. The neighborhood is full of life.

I had planned to have a nice business dinner with an out of town friend. We got there early and were seated and nicely attended to by the staff. Their big question was "tell us what you would like." With that my friend suggested two different dishes, they suggested a way for us to have it all. When I ordered it, they recommended my having less as the balance would be more favorable. We stayed and talked for three hours and were never hurried (we did apologize for staying so long, they seemed genuinely pleased that we liked it so much that we did stay). I am looking forward to going back. AND the food was nicely presented, tasted good and complimented each other!

I went on time and the doors were locked. You need to be sure not to confirm reservations to restaurants that are closed.
