Raj Indian Restaurant
This is still the only Indian restaurant in Protaras, much as several have tried 😉 … It’s spacious, and comfortable, not over the top traditional but the Raj’s excellent reputation just keeps their clients coming back again and again and I must admit it’s one of my fav’s …
At the Raj, the magic of Tandoori comes to light, it’s as authentic as the Tandoori oven it’s cooked in. The Tandoori itself is a clay oven which uses red-hot charcoal to seal in the juices of the marinated food to give it a unique delicious flavour, they even make their own Nann Breads in it … Delicious !
With over 25 years experience, owner Andreas is an expert in Indian Cuisine, selecting the best Indian Chefs and using only the finest local produce, but he imports his favourite spices from the Far East, from several regions in India, to compliment his recipes, finally presenting a menu with enormous variety and taste. They also have an amazing offer on their set menu for two … and have a cool selection for the kids …
It’s hard not to go for the Chicken Tikka Masala, the dish I normally choose to check out a new Indian, but if you’re not sure what to try, ask for the Mixed Tandoori Platter, then just add the side dishes, its like an Indian Meze … or maybe try the Raj Special, cooked to your liking … Mmm !
They welcome parties of any type and have a great selection for the kids, and plenty of outdoor seating and breezy windows overlooking the med … I can feel some romance in the air …
