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

My partner brought me here for our second date and we had a very nice time. It feels like you're walking into someone's living room rather than a restaurant which was a bit disconcerting at first because there was no-one else there (but it was a Tuesday). Once we sat down and got settled it was fine though and the... More

Visited on. Saturday night - sitting down at 7pm. Ended after 10.30 and at £36 per head poor value - without water on the table, coffee or any extras.. Staff seemed totally untrained and service was so slow with drinks being forgotten off the order. Chutneys were the best part of the meal All but one of the main courses... More

My wife and I visited the Rajpoot on the spur of the moment for dinner. The period Victorian dining area was nice but not good. The highlight were the staff who were excellent, very polite and attentive. We had some poppadoms to start but the sauce bowls were dusty and had dried sauce around the tops which looked to have...

As a first time diner here, I thought I'd play it safe and order a medium curry, however, it was bland, only just warm enough not to send back and uninspiring. The chicken did not taste or look as if it had been cooked in the clay oven as stated on the menu and lacked flavour and the sauces were... More

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
