Had a delightful evening dinner here with my husband. It was our first time and we were recommended by friends. Didn't expect it to be as good as it was.

An upmarket Indian restaurant, specialising in Indian/European fusion food, that we have visited often over the years and had variable experiences. This time we returned for the first time in a number of months. It was a Valentine’s Day special, three courses for £30 a head. The restaurant was busy, it is a very old timber-framed building, not the usual... More

The claim is 'fine dining'. The place was very busy, cramped and slightly noisy. The overhead light dazzled so be sure to ask for a table with soft lighting. Very strange internal waterfall behind glass along the whole back wall, which was disturbing to have in the corner of the eye. Having said that everything was clean and sparkly. The... More

Revisiting Dorchester after a long time, the Rajpoot did not disappoint. Service was good and the food was excellent - my son was impressed too.

On a cold Monday lunchtime, we were made most welcome. Without doubt I ate one of the best curries I have ever had. They even took our Groupon voucher which made a very reasonable lunch time meal for four.

If you're looking for a lovely meal in a clean, tranquil restaurant then this is the place to go. The meal was very fresh tasting and the staff very attentive. The only downside for me, the curry was somewhat lacking in taste. When I think of curries they are made with plenty of oil and sauce which this was not.... More

We went here as a group of 6 and had the most amazing food. The menu has so many delicious options with some especially lovely fish dishes. The staff couldn't do enough to help, highly recommended!

Great night out for a works Christmas meal. Fantastic food - the duck starter was particularly good. Service is always spot on. PS Look out for offers on Groupon.

What a nice surprise on a cold January evening! The food was so special: spicy, fragrant, colorful, and fantastically arranged on the plate. Persuading my boyfriend to have one of the fusion-inspired main courses instead of his chicken bhuna was a very good decision. Seafood starters and fish mains were very good, so my only regret is that I didn't... More

Firstly I would like to thank the Rajpoot for the fabulous Christmas Lunch we enjoyed. Yes like many a little surprised to be eating here on Christmas day, but we are done with the normal Turkey and stuffing and decided to try here. We were not disappointed . From initial greeting us to seating us and seeing us leave service... More
