Golflands-based business Raja’s Indian Restaurant & Bar is a finalist in the People’s Choice category of the Menulog Restaurant Awards.

As previously reported by the Times (Oct 20) Menulog’s Restaurant Awards invites Kiwis to vote with their stomachs to find the best local restaurants in the country.

One finalist, Raja’s, has made a name for itself in the local and wider community with its tandoori menu and signature goat curry dish.

The restaurant offered free meals to those in need and struggling financially during the current lockdown.

“We have a hugely loyal following in the east Auckland community and we are proud to be providing our mouth-watering dishes for more than eight years,” says Rajas’s director Amreet Boparai.

“The lockdown has been tough on our local community and for this reason, like last year, we wanted to give something back by offering free food to those who have had trouble surviving the lockdown.”

Kiwis can vote for their favourite takeaway restaurant to win People’s Choice Award for their region and national prize at www.restaurantawards.menulog.co.nz.

The winning restaurant receives an advertising and media package worth $2500 to aid in promoting and growing their business, $1000 for their revenue and other prizes.
