The New Raj restaurant sits in the Talbot Green area of picturesque town of Llantrisant, near Cardiff. The restaurant serves a plethora of both traditional authentic and modern Indian dishes in welcoming, comfortable and unpretentious surroundings well suited to the whole family.
Whether you’re a spice fanatic or prefer your curries sweet and creamy, there’s bound to be something on the menu to suit your taste. 'Raj' means 'British sovereignty' in India, and you'll be treated like a VIP by the dedicated staff from the moment you walk in. The passionate and highly experienced chefs in the New Raj’s kitchen prepare favourites such as Korma, Dhansak, Dupiaza, Pasanda, Jalfrezi, King Prawn Balti and Rogan Josh, as well as a range of Biryanis and Tandoori meats.
There’s also a range of unique and very authentic creations which are crying out for you to try. Try the tantalising and highly exotic chef’s special Captain Pathila: hot and tender strips of chicken prepared with a blend of herbs, spices, fresh coriander, mint and garlic. The rich and tangy dish is then finished off with yogurt and served with your choice of rice or naan, perfect for sopping up the leftover sauce. There’s also the Jantar Mantar, named after the charismatic monument in Rajasthan, and the mouth-watering sweet and sour Chom Chom: tandoori cooked meat flavoured with mango chutney, tamarind and special red sauce.
For sides, or a light snack, tastecard members can also enjoy the irresistible Shimla Mirch: grilled red peppers stuffed with your choice of chicken, lamb or aloo. For vegetarians, the Paneer Tikka is highly recommended: a creamy and satisfying authentic Indian cottage cheese served in an aromatic tikka sauce made from peppers, onions, tomatoes, garlic, herbs and chilli.
Whether you try something a little different or opt for an old faithful at the New Raj, you’re bound to enjoy a highly memorable Indian dining experience which will leave you craving to return.
