Welcome to the Raj

The Raj Indian Restaurants offers all the splendour of traditional North Indian cuisine.


About the experience

Aromatic spices are the essence of the dishes, the herbs are handpicked, and the spices are imported from India. The Raj Indian Restaurant group grows their own organic vegetables at their Head Office premises in Kyalami and have also partnered with local farmers in the area to ensure that only the freshest and highest quality produce is used. The freshness of each and every ingredient served in the group contributes to the high quality and flavour of every dish that leaves the kitchen!

Our History

The Raj Indian restaurant group has brought a taste of traditional North Indian cuisine to guests for over 22 years when Dr Arun Jairath, a practising ophthalmologist, saw an opportunity to launch an authentic Indian restaurant. Back from his medical training in the UK, where he enjoyed some excellent Indian meals in restaurants, he found nothing similar in South Africa. and in 1996 he then opened his first restaurant in Kyalami and the second restaurant followed soon after in Rivonia.

These two outlets rapidly became firm favourites with local and international diners looking for authentic North Indian cuisine in Johannesburg. In 2004 expansion started with the first Express outlet opening at OR Tambo International Airport followed shortly by another Express outlet in Sanridge Square, Midrand. In 2005 a restaurant and Express outlets were opened up in Sun City, and the flagship of the group was opened in the prestigious Michelangelo Towers, Sandton. We have since grown and continue to grow in both the restaurants and express stores.

The Raj is also located Timesquare Casino Menlyn, Waterfall Corner, Nicolway Bryanston, Gold Reef City, Campsbay Promenade, Constantia Old Village and Simon’s Town Harbour Bay Mall.
