While there are technically menu signs above the counter at Raja Sweets And Fast Food, no one really seems to use them. Instead, people come in here knowing exactly what they want. There’s a selection of fried things, like some excellent samosas and very good pakoras you buy by the pound, plus some curries and stews, and a refrigerated dessert counter. Raja is cash-only and has a bunch of tables where you can stick around and eat, but it's also perfect if you need something quick to-go.
