tasty, but over the top with the salt

My expectations might have been a bit too high after I read all the reviews and accolades, and please, don't misunderstand me as service was great, ambiance really good. The Kachumber salad is outstanding! I definitely will return to try more dishes!

I've ordered lamb korma in over 70 restaurants through the US and Europe, this is by far the best I've had. The garlic naan is fantastic and service was fast, friendly, and amazing

We visit Rajput at least once a month because we love their food. We were there this week and ordered the fixed price dinner for 2. The chicken tikka masala was very good and the vegetable korma was heaven. My husband and I both love Indian food and this restaurant is our favorite. We love it and we're big eaters... More

It was just a spur of the moment decision to go there and we are so glad we did. Loved literally everything on the buffet and only $11 a person for all you can eat! We will definitely be back!

Cozy place ,smells great that is the only positive comment I can leave. The service was terrible. Very unorganized people.It took forever to get our food and even the drinks,which were just couple of hot teas and an apple juice for a kid. They just kept forgetting about us constantly.The food from the menu is kinda pricey for what we... More

Of all the great Indian food around, this one is second only to Aago in Newport News. And it is a close second. The service is good too.

Oh my Lord, this food is absolutely delicious!!! I got extras on everything. The Tikka Masalla with chicken and the other with lamb were absolutely delicious!! Creamy and tasty. Then dipped the warm Naan garlic bread in the sauce. I have already returned back several times. They will also do takeout if you don't have time to dine in. Just... More

The food, service and atmosphere is very good. We loved the Naan along with a sauce that we got to put on it, unfortunately I can't remember the name of it. The Tandoori Chicken was phenomenal.

I've been here twice and the first time I wasn't too excited to go because I've never had Indian food, but I absolutely loved it!! I had the chicken masala and basmati rice from the buffet and it was so good I had to look up a recipe when I got home and make it for myself!! The service is... More

It had been quite a while since my last visit to Rajput -- too long. It is still one of the best restaurants around, especially for lunch. The lunch buffet was hot, fresh, varied, and delicious. The servers were attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Bonus points to the server who, noticing us taking the last couple pieces of naan,... More
