Great place to eat, away from the busy square you end in a quiet restaurant to relax. Clean, tidy and spacious place. Food is excellent and the staff nicely attentive. Recommend.

After the theatre six of us visited Rajdoot for a meal . It was one of the best Indian meals we have had (including eating in India). The decor and ambience was delightful. The staff were attentive and very polite. The meal was promptly served and tasted excellent. All six of us could not fault it and we highly recommend... More

After dining with my family I wanted to write a review of our evening at Rajdoot. We arrived and were greeted with a warm smile, offered a drink in the luxury seating lounge and given each a menu for the evening. The opulence and warm greeting set out the evening ahead for us. Our meal was equally opulent, with dishes... More

I didn't think it was possible to have bland tasteless indian food, so hats off to the Rajdoot for proving otherwise. My friends onion Bhaji had been refried many times and was solid inside .. my small samosas were freshly fried but totally tasteless.. five out of six of us said our food was tasteless, lacking in spice or flavour...

We have just left this restaurant. It is disgusting from the outset and very very unhygienic. It is the worst restaurant we have ever visited. To start, the stench on arrival of dirty drains is overwhelming. We watched the waitress add the Bombay mix to mix that was already dipped in to by previous clients. The carpet is disgusting. We...

Visited with my husband and daughter on a weekend visit to Manchester. Almost walked past it as it is based downstairs. Service was excellent. Food was so tasty. Nicest garlic naan and delicious chicken korma. Every dish tasted distinctly different. It was well priced for the high quality food. We would definitely visit again.

Description
Rajdoot Manchester has been serving delicacies to customers for nearly 50 years and was the first Tandoori restaurant in Europe to open in 1966. Located under the depths of Albert Square, Rajdoot Manchester gives a sense of escapism to Moglai inspired interiors, where guests can enjoy an authentic dining experience in an atmospheric and ambient setting. With a central Manchester location, Rajdoot can also be adapted into a space for your corporate event or office party. We specialise in delivering great value, high quality 2-3 course menus and have delivered to the likes of Co-operative, BMW, PwC, United Utilities and many law chambers. Additionally, we host the annual Curry Club networking event and have been for the last 33 years.
