from your host


It is with a great smile, I warmly welcome you to British Raj Express, our award-winning takeaway located opposite Royston Railway Station.


British Raj – Royston’s original Indian restaurant – was first opened by my late Grandfather Mr. Nazir Choudhury in 1976 up to his retirement in 2004. My childhood dream has always been to ‘bring back’ the British Raj and to continue our family’s legacy.


When we opened the doors of British Raj Express, our simple goal was to provide Royston with an unparalleled level of the very best Bangladeshi & Indian cuisine. British Raj proudly featured amongst the Top 10 Takeaways in Britain in 2019 at both the British Curry Awards & Asian Curry Awards respectively.


Our team looks forward to welcoming you to experience the Best Takeaway in East Anglia.

Secrets of a Winning Meal

An extract from the original British Raj menu:


Few establishments can boast a loyal clientele spanning several decades, a clutch of awards and a menu which manages to double up as a mini reference book.


Centrally located opposite Royston Railway Station, the British Raj is proud of its reputation. Owner Nazir Choudhury chuckles when asked the secret of his success. The answer is simple: a first class chef, a well thought-out menu and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
