A stylish take on a traditional curry house, Fort Raj serve up time-honoured Indian recipes in a sleek and contemporary setting. Drawing in spice lovers from all over Poole to its Penn Hill Avenue location every day of the week, Fort Raj is the perfect place for a special family meal or gathering with friends. The mixed platter (sheek kebabs, spicy lamb samosas, malai, chicken tikka, spiced potato patties, sweetened yogurt and tamarind chutney) is the perfect way to begin your meal before moving on to a traditional curry or one of Fort Raj’s signature dishes like the garlic chilli chicken or tilapia moilee (fillets of tilapia poached in coconut milk then tempered with sesame, mustard and chilli, served with stir-fry vegetables and lemon rice). For a superlative Indian feast in Parkstone, book a table and head on over!
Friendly, efficient staff. Great choice of dishes all cooked very well. Lovely flavours which did not overpower the dish. Thoroughly enjoyable evening. Reasonable prices. Highly recommended.
Excellent food. Lamb was really tender. All dished had good flavours. Great staff. Coped really well with power cut whilst we were there. We will definitely go back.
Excellent food, great service and lovely atmosphere makes this the best of its kind in Poole and Bournemouth. A return visit is in the cards very soon!
I have eaten at Fort Raj for many years even pre name change and I have never had a bad experience. Although I have eaten at many Indian restaurants around the world and on cruise ships, Fort Raj cook their food completely different to any others. Fantastic restaurant.
This was the 2nd time I have eaten at Fort Raj and it was as good as the 1st time, a fantastic menu with some variation on the standard menu's which as a curry lover is always good to see. Great service while still discrete Will be back again
We had a deal for a classic curry, a rice or naan dish and glass of wine, lager or soft drink. We were greeted warmly and looked after well. My husband and I shared a goats cheese and spinach samosa which we enjoyed. There was a choice of two prawn curries - I do not eat meat or chicken ) and I choose the Goan curry which was excellent.
This was not our first visit, can't count the number of times we have been but this is hands down one of the best restaurants we have ever been too. The staff are very attentive and courteous, always on hand when you need them. The food is the main reason we keep coming back though. It is always to a high standard and fantastic quality with amazing flavours!
We found the staff very welcoming. The menu offered a good range of choice without being too large. The food was very tasty and the overall service was friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend Fort Raj to my friends!
We were a table of 6. Had a nice window seat. Was taken to our table but left for 10 mins without menus or orders for drink. Food was good as usual. But staff did not check if our meal was ok. Staff not engaging or smiley. On asking for the bill, we were giving 2 chocolates on a table for 6.! It was Disappointing as it was a birthday dinner and when booking on line I had noted this on special request. But no one had wished him Happy Birthday.
Excellent food, as always and very friendly staff. We've been dining here for a few years now and it has been consistently good! Highly recommend Fort Raj to all 😊
