Visited Rajdoot after reading the reviews. Tasty food, perhaps the best paneer tikka and naan I have ever eaten and very friendly and welcoming staff.

Ate here on Saturday after a show, did book in advance but upon arrival there were only two other tables full, they sat us down in the waiting area and served us our drinks order, then continued to leave us sitting there and take our food order, I reiterated that we had a table booked but they said this was...

We've been to this restaurant many times over the years, but hadnt been for the last 2 or 3 years. Recently went again and the food was just as excellent as it always has been. Everything is cooked to order and the dishes are extremely authentic. Cannot fault it.

Went for late night food, 2 of us and thought would try this after its refurb. Nice interior and good ambience. Poppadums and starters good,Chicken Jalfrezi very tasty.All in all enjoyed the meal but did not like to see 10% optional service charge added to the bill, read the bill carefully at the end of the night!

Four of us came for a meal after the theatre. The décor and ambience was good and the service was efficient. To be fair the others were satisfied with their meal. I ordered the lamb chilli bhuna. To be honest one of the worst curries I have been served. The lamb seemed to consist in equal parts of fat and... More

Dear Patrick Thank you very much for your lovely comments regarding our service and ambiance although I am sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your lamb dish. - This is very surprising as the Lamb Chilli Bhuna always gets a great reception and we are praised for the quality of our cuts of lamb.

Staying in a local hotel with a rather unimaginative menu so found The Rajdoot on TA. Phoned an order through to a very polite and helpful member of staff. Wandered down half an hour later, short wait and off I went with the food... Most importantly, every mouthful was delicious... the Kebab and bhaji starter were both full of flavour... More

Dear Bananrob, Thank you for leaving us brilliant feedback - I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed our Shish Kebab and Rajdoot style Bhajis! We have had them on the menu for 50 years and they have always been throughly enjoyed! I am sorry to hear that you feel your bill was a little steep. Usually for a starter, main,... More
