About Last Days of the Raj
Welcome to The Last Days of the Raj restaurant.
The British Raj took much away from its sojourn into India, one of the most significant of which was the food. The discovery of Indian spices changed the British Palate forever, creating a legacy which has continued long after the days of the Raj were gone.
Our menu reflects the vast range of cuisine from the subcontinent with influences from Bengal, Parsi, Goan, Gujarat as well as from the British Raj. We are confident that our menu will impress your taste buds but our chefs are more than happy to cater to any particular needs you may have.
The restaurant and menu embodies the culture of the Indian Subcontinent and celebrates it’s history, culture and traditions. We aim to provide you with exemplary service and great food in a comfortable environment fit for a Maharajah.
Since opening the original restaurant in 1995, the Last Days of the Raj had become synonymous with fine food and attention to detail. The restaurant had become one of the most succesful Indian restaurants in the North East winning national awards.
We opened here in January 2015 and have enjoyed great success thanks to our customers. We have continued the tradition of being nominated for the top awards by being a finalist for “Newcomer Of The Year” category at The British Curry Awards 2015 and we hope to go on and excel further in the future. As one of the best Indian restaurants in Newcastle, we are proud to have been give 5 stars by the Evening Chronicle.
Please enjoy your visit and enjoy our celebration of the British Raj.
