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.
