Nice meal and atmosphere. Friendly staff.

A pleasant restaurant. Not noisy even though it was busy. The curry was more aromatic than a lot of places - which I liked. The lamb was beautifully tender. We also liked the fact that Rajdoot obviously know the dishes that they are good at and have a (compared to some places) relatively limited... read more

Table booked for 7, turned up and they asked us to come back at 9. Food was below average, burnt chicken starters, main dishes had 2-3 chunks of meat in them, no flavour what so ever. Chutneys again tasteless.We asked for extra spice in certain dishes the main owner/lady said this was not possible as it was busy. If you... More

My wife and I have been visiting the Rajdoot for almost 40 years so I suppose its obvious we love the place! In that time we've probably been through the menu umpteen times. Though it isn't just the food that is delightful, so is the owner, (Sant) his wife, son & daughter, all at some point help out at busy... More

Whatever you choose from their select menu will arrive freshly cooked to perfection and served by friendly staff. Their fish and lamb simply melt in your mouth and are consistently favourites! Considering the standard of their food, service and position right in the centre of manchester Rajdoot offers exceptional value for money. An absolute must if you fancy a curry... More

We regularly visit the Rajdoot and have done so for many many years, the staff are friendly and the food is just amazing! They never fail to impress us at all. We highly recommend that everyone should visit and enjoy a fabulous curry at the Rajdoot!

I have been going to the Rajdoot since it opened in 1972. Since then it has been my favourite restaurant in Manchester City Centre. There are others, but this is still the best. Makhan Chara with Peshwari Naan, and Keema Muttei are 2 dishes well worth trying if you have never been. No one should miss this restaurant.

I have eaten at many different Indian restaurants in and around Manchester over the last 40 years including the renowned Curry Mile (Rusholme), and in my opinion very few (if any) come close to the quality of the Rajdoot. In terms of food, service and value for money this restaurant stands head and shoulders above all others in the region.... More

The Rajdoot will always hold a special place in our hearts as we had a meal there following our wedding in January 2012. The staff are so friendly and attentive and we can't thank them enough for their hospitality. Our meal on Christmas Eve was fantastic as always, especially the Makhani Chicken (butter chicken) is the best I've ever had!... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for twenty years and have never been disappointed. The authenticity of the food still beggers belief, and is so far removed from the generic chains that tend to dominate city centres. The service is fantastic and always friendly, which largely imparts from the restaurant's longstanding success as a warm, family run business. I... More
