Great food and great service as always. Best Indian in the area by far. Love the Handi Lamb.

Shared a wonderful evening at Rajas with the family! Amazing food & excellent service, its just a lovely restaurant to relax and unwind in whilst enjoying authentic Indian cuisine. Thanks T.J and team!

We ate here a few weeks ago with our family of 16 people. We booked at the very last minute, and were met with a prompt and thorough reply from TJ, who then accommodated us no problem. The food was delicious, fast and perfect. The restaurant was sparkling clean and generally I could not have asked for better service. Thank you Raja’s and TJ for giving us such a pleasant dining experience.


Have visited this restaurant a number of times and always amazed it is not busier. The service is exceptional. Prompt and personal without being OTT. Two adults and two kids enjoyed entrée main and dessert. All the food was great – miles better than takeaway Indian food. We highly recommend this hidden jewel

A small group of eight adults and two young children went for a birthday dinner. From the time we walked into the restaurant TJ made us feel very welcome. The service was fantastic always coming over to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Everyone enjoyed the meal they chose and we all had a great evening. We all took the take away menu home! Thank we will certainly be coming back again. JP


We went to Raja's on a work training conference. Really good environment and clean surroundings. We were a big group of around 30 but this was no issue for the staff. The food arrived at the desired time and was full of flavours. Everyone of us had a good time and I sure will be back with my fiancee to have dinner again. Thank you Raja's team.


Tj welcomed us as if we were expected royalty. The service was impeccable and the food matched the expectations. I have dined at a lot of Indian restaurants around the globe and Rajahs is up there. The spices are pungent and sauces are filled with onion or tomato or protein rather than the smattering of ingredient and copious sauce found elsewhere. We enjoyed a truly memorable meal. I recommend this eating experience to all who seek a quality dining experience.

Had our first visit the other night and have to say it was the best Indian meal we have ever had. The service was fantastic and it was truly a great experience. We look forward to going back again soon.

We live in Golflands and decided we would try Raja's as it was so close. The service was fantastic they were not impatient with us taking our time to order and the food was the best (especially the butter chicken). The whole experience was just awesome. We would highly recommend it, we will all be coming back.

Amazing! For all the celiacs and gluten intolerant all mains are gluten free, I can personally vouch for no repercussions after eating here. It was such a large quantity for such a low price, and the quality doesn't disappoint at all! BEST customer service I've ever experienced as well. Highly recommended!

My husband and I were in Auckland for the evening and didn't get a chance for dinner just before 10pm. As I was expecting to be turned down, I was shocked to find Raja's welcomed us in and let us take our time. The service was immaculate! Extremely friendly, and when we asked about the food, a great explanation was given. I'd have to say, I've never had Indian food taste so delicious! Over all, great service, great food, great mango lassi, and great price! We will be heading to Auckland again soon, and have already planned where we will be dining again!

My husband and I would highly recommend Raja's - Thank you for the best "Butter Chicken" I have ever had and my husband loved the "Green curry" We will be back and grateful to have found a good quality Indian Restaurant at a fair price, the meat portions were very generous.

This place has very good Naan bread. I've only had the lunch special twice and both times has been consistent (even after the name change). The curry has a mix of flavours and still you can eat the spices (whole) sometimes which I like because I think it's 'fresher'. Also the chunks of meat is of good value and quality.


Thanks to Raja's, I went online to look for somewhere to take my partner to dinner so I searched for eateries in Botany and found Raja's at the top of the list and viewed the comments. We have been looking for a decent Indian Restaurant for a good year or so, we thought we would try Raja's. I couldn't speak any more highly and would definitely recommend. The service was nothing but outstanding, the quality of food was exceptional and pricing was very reasonable. Have now found my new Indian Restaurant. Thank you for the outstanding experience.

I would like to say great thanks to Raja's restaurant team. Every time they made our visit special with warm welcome and friendly environment. My family really feel comfortable and specially like their amazing food. I celebrated almost all the occasions there. Raja's restaurant is our first choice to dine out. Huge Menu to taste different food on every visit. really hidden Gem...wish the Raja's team best of luck !!!

We recently had our 1st wedding anniversary at this restaurant and it was a moment to cherish. The food along with the hospitality, service and the customer service was all top class. The food pricing is also very reasonable. Highly recommend. Keep up the good work and we will surely have you as the no.1 destination if we have to hold similar occasions : )

I went to Raja's Restaurant for a work function, awesome service and food, the place setting is very nice as well. Plenty of parking so didn't have to worry about that. I would highly recommend this place and will definitely be back to try their lunch menu.

Went there for a staff work party recently. It was my first experience eating at an Indian restaurant, usually I don't like foreign foods. All the food tasted amazing though and the service was really good, the staff were very friendly. The experience definitely opened my mind to Indian food, I would definitely eat there again.

Went there with friends on a Wednesday, we had the $10 Lunch special and all 5 of us had butter chicken. Hands down the best butter chicken I have ever had. The only downside is that this place is so underrated. Food was excellent, huge menu so will definitely cater to everyones taste buds

I live in Tauranga and come to Auckland quite often. I find Auckland to be very busy and full of options. Having too many options, it also means a lot confusions and dilemmas. An Auckland friend took me to this place some time ago and we went there again last weekend. Based on my two experiences, I must say that it is the best Indian restaurant I have dined in through out the country. The set up is just extraordinary and I could see hard working employees running around. The food came out nice and hot and we could smell the flavors. Their Chicken Korma was divine and the best I have ever tasted. I am a big fan of cooking myself so I guess I understand the flavours to a large extend. However, I did not know that naan breads can be so different in terms of the quality. They came super soft and tasty. You could fold them so easily like a napkin. Upon paying the bill, I complemented the owner to which he was very obliged and thankful. Overall we all had a great time there and I will return again in few weeks on my next visit.

Me and the other half went here after receiving a menu in our letterbox. They had a wide selection of vegetarian options for myself & the other half had his usual Butter Chicken. The food was YUMMY, with just the right amount of spice. Staff were helpful when I inquired about something on the menu & they were very happy and obliging. We would go here again. Overall great dining, Great price and Scrumptious food! Good local for us!


We went to this hidden gem after hearing good things from our mates. So thought of giving it a shot as both the Indian restaurant close to my house are quite ordinary. As soon as I entered this Raja's, we felt that we were in a high class restaurant. Very clean and tidy restaurant with a touch of elegance. We were warmly welcomed by a waiter and were given the menus as soon as sat down. Water and poppadum arrived straight after that. We took time to order as they have such a comprehensive menu. I have not seen so many dishes in any Indian restaurant. We had their mixed platter & the waiter gladly helped us in choosing the mains. I tried black pepper chicken & my partner went for the Keema Mutter. Both the dishes were just extraordinary and cooked to perfection. A big thanks to the man & their chef. The restaurant made our night & probably was the highlight of the week. Will definitely be returning to Raja's when it's our turn to eat Indian cuisine.

I love this place, the service is always great and the food is very delicious. Staff working there is very friendly and accommodating. They know how to take care of their customers and keep them well served all the time.

Went to this outstanding restaurant last night. Saw the $11.90 deal on Monday night, so wasn't expecting much. The restaurant was quiet, which added to our low expectations when we came in but we were really surprised with the food and service we received. I must say this restaurant is absolutely gorgeous! The interior is light, clean and the most elegant we have seen, unlike many Indian restaurants. The food was fresh and tasty, we have not eaten curries of this high grade in a long time. We even got a refill of rice at no extra cost. The service was impeccable including very attentive staff. The waiter never let our water glasses go empty. Would definitely come back here again and bring our friends. Keep up the good work!

Always have a fantastic meal here & they are always extremely friendly & accommodating. The stuffed capsicum & Aloo Gobi are my absolute favorites... So glad they now deliver to Golflands... Great having a neighbourhood Indian restaurant that is so good every time.


Decided to try Raja's takeaway last night for the first time and my wife & I will be going back again. My wife had the Palak Paneer which is her favorite Indian meal. She thought the sauce was lovely and the spice level was just right. I went with a Chicken Methi, Hot which was lovely. It could have been a little spicier but apart from that it was brilliant. The staff were fantastic and the restaurant looks very inviting. Lovely layout & quality chattels. Looking forward to trying out the restaurant very shortly.

Saturday night went with family to this fabulous restaurant. The food was amazing and full of flavours. Went to Oh Calcutta last saturday for a family dinner and the experience was average, the food was average. but experience to this restaurant was outstanding. The food was amazing, flavoursome and truely authentic. The staff was very friendly and warm. I have been to almost all indian restaurants in auckland and believe me I found this the best.

Amit S.

I have visited here several times and have found the staff very friendly and the price very reasonable. Each time I visit I choose a different dish and cannot fault any of them! The food and overall experience is amazing.


I think the previous reviewer must have gone to a different restaurant! A friend took me to Raja's a couple of months ago and I have been back several times since. I just love the food here - beautiful flavours, always freshly cooked and served with hot plates which doesn't happen very often. We always receive a very warm welcome and nothing seems too much trouble for TJ and the team. To my mind the meals are very reasonably priced with portions I can't quite finish.....but persuade myself to because they taste so good. Try the Prawn Malabari with an Amritsari Naan - my mouth is watering at the thought and I was only there last night!
