Description: Set in a charming Georgian building in Clifton, Rajpoot is one of Bristol's finest Indian restaurants. Set over two levels, the interior is equally traditional - complete with crisp linen tablecloths, silver cutlery and huge windows overlooking the Downs. The menu covers the principal regions of India and includes familiar favourites, cooked as they would be in Indian homes. Popular dishes include the tandoori trout barbecued over a clay over; lamb shashlik; and chicken chat served with a twist of lemon and minted yoghurt dressing

This Indian restaurant if different, very different in a very good way. Although the food selection does contain some old favourites, there are many dishes that are unique to this restaurant. I Chose a Jalfrezi and my husband chose a milder dish, both were cooked to perfection and you could really taste the spices. Service was pleasant and professional even... More

The food, service and ambience was amazing but I felt it was bit pricy. Still worth a lot. We really enjoyed it. I would recommend you to visit it once while you are in Bristol.

I visited Rajpoot for the first time recently and given the recommendations, I was expecting good things. The interior is small and is like sitting in a living room but I liked it. What was a simple 2 course dinner took about 3 hours. Service was painfully slow and we had to ask for water 3 times. When we did... More

Wow, this is an old school Indian restaurant, from being greeted by a very friendly and sincere Manager, to sitting in a small well appointed dining area, I knew we were in for a treat. Not disappointed, I started with Calamari chilli fry patti, yes really, similar to a prawn puri but squid, highly recommended, my partner had spicy spring... More

We had a VIP guest to entertain and the result of a web search indicated that Raj Poot was one of the best Indian restaurants in Bristol. Our experience was far from that. I have lived in Bristol since 1997 and the food served by Raj Poot was the worst I have encountered in Bristol. The service was equally poor;... More

I continue to be amazed by the sheer awfulness of Indian Restaurants in Bristol. Comedy service, bland food, creeping prices and total disregard for fresh, quality ingredients. I remember going to this restaurant many years ago, and it was one of the more acceptable Indian Restaurants in Bristol. But something has happened! It looks tired, the focus seems to be... More

Easily the most abnoxious place i, or any of the people with me, have ever tried (!) to eat in. We were more than eager to eat here, but after the unfriendly welcome and then the pints of Cobra beer that were UNDRINKABLE as they tasted so off, we had to leave. We would have been happy with an apology... More

Friendly service. Amazing food. One of the few restaurants where the takeaway is as good as sitting in the restaurant. Its now my favourite curry in town.

We arrived early in the evening & were for a while the only ones in the resturant. Within a short time, this soon changed & after eating the food it became obvious why. Every dish was well presented & delicious. Freshly cooked, you could tell the chef took pride in his dishes. One of the finest indian meals I've had... More
