    When waiting patiently in line at a prata stall, have you ever stared in awe as the prata-man behind the glass flips his prata oh-so-skillfully-and-gracefully? Well, the good news is: we have our very own beloved prata-man here at Raffles Institution, who goes by the name Raju. But Raju is no ordinary prata-man. Instead of pratas, he flips something bigger, badder, and buffer – hoomans. And he doesn’t stand behind an ordinary flat grill flipping his dough; Rather, he flips ju-dough-kas in his state of the art dough-jo.

    Now that he is an expert in his craft, Raju is looking for apprentices to learn his skills! He is looking to teach some of the famous techniques that he has mastered over many years of practice.

    Perhaps you’ve been wondering, who is this Raju that you’re talking so highly about? Well, Raju is the proud owner of RAJU Prata House, formally known to most as Raffles Judo, and affectionately known to the inner circle as simply RAJU (because RAffles JUdo).

    Don’t flip out just yet! We welcome people of all sizes; whether big or small, tall or short, RAJU has a place for you.
