I have visited this restaurant on many occasions - as far back as the 1970s (although a different location then). The food is fairly traditional, but of a consistently good standard. The surroundings are very pleasant and the service always good. It has been in the same ownership for many years and I am always pleased to be recognised on... More

This is not my first visit to Rajdoot as I'm a big fan of the flavours and quality of the food and I've enjoyed every dish I've eaten here. Only off-putting aspect, and hence the 4 stars on this occasion, on this visit was the automatic 10% surcharge added at the end of the meal. I'm not against paying a... More

This is family run and friendly. Several parties do it was lively. The food was nice but a few more options to put on your poppadom would be nice. Also I do like the theatre of Indian dining where they wipe the plates, serve the rice and main. All lacking here. But no complaints. It was a good meal and... More

We've seen this restaurant many times when we've been driving down George Street and thought we'd give it a go. We hadn't bored but they found us a table in about 10 minutes, and it was quite busy inside. It's a very large, and quite high-end decor, and the staff are very attentive and approachable. The king prawn tandoori starters... More

Visiting in a group of 10 on a Tuesday afternoon. The restaurant was literally empty, except for us. Despite this, it took about 15 or so minutes for them to seat us at the table. However, that was the only negative part of the experience and it wasn't even a big deal. I just didn't think it was necessary. After... More

The Rajdoot was highly recommended to me and I thought it would be an ideal place for us to eat but had I known the prices, I would have definitely reconsidered an alternative restaurant. There were 7 in the party and we ordered the usual types of dishes, nothing extravagant and two drinks each so, you would expect to pay... More

I was invited here by a business colleague who promised me "the best Indian food". As he is an Indian I was expecting something special but was left underwhelmed. We were greeted and then seated in the waiting area despite the restaurant not appearing busy - it was a Tuesday evening. Drinks arrived and food ordered and we were shown... More
