Very Very Good Indian Food In Norfolk!

This is among the top Indian restaurants I have eaten in. The food was very tasty, with a big variety. The service was also excellent. It was a small group of friends and we were all pleased with our dishes!

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

We had family visiting from out of town and picked up a coupon book with discounts for restaurants in the area. We were the only people seated away from the rest of the customers in the main dining area. They never actually waited on us or checked on us for refills, etc. and they did not honor the coupon.

Last night we were on our way to a restaurant in which we have a gift card. The wait was to long because we had tickets to an event. So we stumbled across the lovely Indian restaurant. Food was amazing, decor spot on, and nice separation between booths. I'll be back to try more fun food. Thumbs up! BTW, Chi... More

Vegan Buffet is the first Thursday evening of each month. Five of us dined together and everyone gave raving reviews. We tasted nearly everything on the bar and no one reported anything that they didn't like. Everything was fresh, hot, appealing, delicious, healthy, with a great variety! We will 'definitely' return!

I had another restaurant in mind one very hungry night in Norfolk, but it was packed, and I could see Rajput around the corner, so ended up trying it at random. Very lucky accident! Dinner was terrific, and they are very gluten-conscious, which is a big sell for my family. The most I've enjoyed Indian in a long time!

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
