This is one of my favorite restaurants. The aroma of the restaurant is very pleasant when you walk inside. The settings are warm and modern. My daughter and I ordered chicken curry and chicken kabob. Both are excellent dishes. Served with rice and the kabob is served with grilled vegetables and sauce. The naan bread was delicious and I recommend... More

My family & I try to have Indian cuisine at least once every season and this was our first visit to Rajput in the Ghent area on 21st Street just off of Colley Avenue. Most inviting setting & atmosphere of the Indian restaurants we've experienced in Hampton Roads. Festive Indian decor in a relatively open, spacious dining area with plenty... More

Being from Toronto, Canada, where finding an ethnic Indian restaurant is quite easy, we did not know what to expect from this restaurant upon walking in. The restaurant had a variety of items to choose from. We ordered some biryani, chicken butter, chicken chilly and naan. The biryani was requested to be made spicy and we got exactly what we... More

Not much to dislike. I love Indian food and the buffet is wonderful. You can try different dishes including vegetarian. I have never had anything that I didn't enjoy.

I haven't had a ton of Indian food, so I am not an expert, but I loved this place. Came in for dinner with the family and was seated immediately. Once seated, we were served water in a bronze like cup. There is a huge menu selection. The dishes are named in Indian but have the description on the side... More

Stopped in for lunch. We looked at the menu and the buffet and decided on the buffet. Good selection of curried chicken and vegetables as well as some meatless dishes. We didn't find the food to be very spicy at all. The service was attentive but not smothering. We'll go again and order off the menu. Lunch buffet with a... More

Went for lunch with friends. Very good selection of chutneys to go with the five or six entrees available on the buffet. I will return for dinner and to order off the menu. Recommended.
