Very disappointing. Good portions but largely indistinguishable food. Rice was the high point as it tasted different from the rest. Even the papadums tasted floury. 10% service added automatically. Don't like that. Wouldn't go again.

The restaurant is well decorated in a traditional style. The staff were friendly but unobtrusive. All of the food we ordered was delicious. The only negative was the lack of lamb in the Saag Gosh ordered by one of our party.

In Manchester for one night only and tripadvisor pointed us here. We were so glad to have found rajdoot, it was fantastic! Northern Indian cuisine, everything tasted very good! Staff were friendly and couldn't have been more helpful, we both thoroughly enjoyed our meal!

This was my second visit. First visit I raved about the superb paneer tikka. Unfortunately, this time, the quantity was half the size and also not well cooked at all. Also, unfortunately, they are not able to make slight adjustments outside of the standard menu...More
