Day of the Raj reviews

By Richard E.

Ate here on Friday 24th February and the food and service were both excellent. Extensive menu but with a twist on some of the traditional curry house favourites e.g. a fantastic homemade tamarind sauce accompanies the onion bhaji. Played it safe as it was our first visit and went for balti mains which were tasty and well spiced. Sides and breads also excellent. Wine list modest but good value and tasty. We live locally so this will become a regular first option for Indian. Very highly recommended.

hi am sorry to hear you had a bad meal at the restaurant. it would have been nice of you to complain about it at the resaurant rather then putting it on the internet, as i make sure i ask every table if the meal was good and dont remember any one saying they had a bad meal on the night, unless i missed your table by accident i hope you will return for a meal at the restaurant on the house to show you that your bad experience was a one off

Eat there last night and was not impressed. The menu is too big and confusing. Still the enjoyment should be in the food and I have to say it was of poor quality. I ordered Bengal Fish Special, Bhindi, Daal, Sheek Kebab, Nan and rice. The fish was just ok a £12 dish. The Sheek Kebab was like eating soft rubber and the dish came served with huge chunks of onion. The Daal and Bhindi really nothing special. Not impressed, certainly won't be going back there in a hurry. It says on their website that they won the British curry awards in 2007 and 2008 clearly standards have slipped since then.

I don't normally write reviews for restaurants but I felt compelled to after having a wonderful dining experience at this restaurant. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we stepped in. The service was so attentive and prompt. The food was excellent. On leaving, my mother-in-law left her phone on the table, they managed to track us down outside and return it!

Day of The Raj is easily the best Indian restaurant in N.W. London.

The staff are very welcoming, attentive and eager to please. The restaurant has a pleasant, friendly atmosphere and the food speaks for itself. The popadoms, naan and paratha are fresh and light as they should be. The pilau rice is soft and perfectly cooked and the Korma and Masala are particularly creamy and flavoursome.

The restaurant also has a very affordable and well stocked buffet at lunchtime on the weekends, well worth trying out and a good opportunity to sample a wider range of dishes.

Mill Hill’s longest established Indian continues to serve up a selection of authentic Indian cuisine to a hungry North London clientele.

The Venue
Day of the Raj takes centre stage on The Broadway in Mill Hill and within touching distance of Finchley. The interior is a moody setting of contemporary furnishings with some tasteful gold like colours that embodies the Raj spirit and some striking lighting.

The Atmosphere
This is what every Indian experience should be. Good food with a setting to match and diners enjoying each others company as well as the cuisine that comes to the table. There’s lots of buzz coming from each table and you may even spot the odd celebrity face with past customers including former Coronation Street actresses and pop stars.

The Food
With dishes including Persian curries and tandoori the choice is particularly generous. To start the Dall soup of lentils, herbs and garlic is a real infusion and packed full of flavour while the murgi tikka is a traditional dish with pieces of chicken breast skewered and cooked in a traditional tandoori oven. The meat is juicy, moist and melts in the mouth with ease. The peshwari nan filled with coconut and sultanas also scores highly. An interesting mix but nonetheless the sultanas bring out the sweetness at the end.

On to mains and the duck bakhara is sure to get you back through the door. Tender pieces of duck are roasted in a tandoori oven enveloped in a rich thick sauce and finished with plump tomatoes, green peppers and fragrant coriander which cuts right through the duck beautifully. This is medium in strength so won’t completely blow you off your chair. One of the many specialities on offer is the lamb passanda, a mild dish of tender pieces of lamb cooked in a marinade of cream and topped with sultanas, almonds and pistachio nuts. The contrast of the crunchiness of the nuts combined with the soft meat is divine.

The Drink
There’s the usual wines that cover most of Europe including a decent Chardonnay that’s dry but not overpowering. The house white is worth a gamble and if you are more leaning towards beers then The Indian beers are always safe bets if you do not want to wager and go for broke on the wine list.

The Last Word
Day of the Raj will provide you with a good dining experience that can compete with any Indian restaurant in the capital
