We love it all, especially the tikka masala. Used to live across the street and would eat there once a week. The ambiance is a little casual but you're not going there to impress people, you're going grubbin'! Good for takeout, the food stays really hot. I can't stand cold takeout. :-)
This is a wonderful little cafe in Solano avenue. The food is carefully done to match your taste buds, and as such, the food is always fresh. The service is also quite good, sometimes you wait a little bit more than you would like, but this is due to the great demand that they enjoy in cafe Raj.
It s been years I have been going to this place. The kitchen and the bathroom is super clean and the food is delicious. I have tried everything from their menu and all of them are equally tasty. Strongly recommended.
So good you won't be able to keep yourself away. And that's how most everyone else feels which is why it's nearly impossible to get a table here! But don't think about calling for reservations as Cafe Raj doesn't take any. You will be more than glad that you waited outside for the fantastic food and service you get when you come here. And yes it's so great that people sometimes even eat outside under the umbrellas when it's raining! Everything is good here; there's nothing that you won't like. You can custom order any dish and the staff will be thrilled to grant your every wish. Now is the service above average because it's fast and convenient? No because that's not what makes the service at this restaurant above average! While it's true the service is extremelt slow and inconvenient, where else will you find servers who smile at you, talk to you and ask you and the rest of your party how you are doing? You will never find service like this at any other restaurant you eat at. The servers are eager to answer all your questions and will make you feel at home. As for the food, try the Chicken Tikka Masala - it's outstanding. I won't even describe it it's so good. Also, the Channa Masala is excellent - you won't find better garbanzo beans than these. Try the Kofta Curry and you'll be in seventh heaven. Yum. I could go on and on but I'd run out of room. The only reason not to come here is if you're looking for peace and quiet. This is a lively place! And the value for your money is fantastic! This is a great place to come with friends. What more can I say about Cafe Raj? You have to try it to really know how great it is. Bon Appetite!
