Rabbie at The Raj
We love Indian food here at TasteWant so we wanted to give a shout out the The Raj Restaurant in Edinburgh as they have got something special going down in January for Burn’s Night, check them out…
This January, Edinburgh’s favourite Indian restaurant, Tommy Miah’s The Raj, is celebrating Burn’s Night with a melding of Scotland and India.
The 25th will be a spicy affair at the restaurant in Blackhall, spearheaded by Scotland’s Curry King, Tommy Miah. The traditional supper of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties which is usually served to celebrate the bard’s birthday will be switched for Curried Haggis, Spiced Neeps and Bombay Tatties along with other Scottish staples that have been given a distinctly Asian twist.
“The three course menu is a fiery treat that has quite the kick but won’t blow your head off!” says Miah, who is always looking for new and innovative ways to present Indian food.
To avoid disappointment, it is suggested bookings are made in advance. £19.95 pp.
Following a successful 30 years in Leith, The Raj has relocated to Blackhall, Edinburgh. At The Raj you can expect extra ordinary tastes and ﬂavours usually found in the palaces and high-homes of India and Bangladesh. The skilled chefs bring the cultures that have come together in Bombay — the Goans, Bengalis, Gujeraﬁs, Mughals and Portuguese — for you now to relish in Edinburgh.
Back in 1986, the Raj restaurant was created around the idea of bringing the cuisine of the great city to Edinburgh. Today, The Raj’s menus reﬂect this ongoing exploration featuring the freshest seafood, chicken, and lamb, as well as plenty to please vegetarian palates. Their menus feature a wide variety of cooking techniques, from slow cooked curries to grills and kebabs as well as tandooris from the clay oven.
Check the Raj Restaurant out for yourself, it looks awesome!
