My wife and I stopped in for the lunch buffet, and we are glad we did. The servers are polite and attentive. There was a good selection of populr Indian dishes, chutneys and naan. We sampled most of the offerings. Everything was tastey. We particularly likes the coconut rice. And, to top it off, the price was very reasonable.

Food was outstanding. They do a vegan night on first and third Wednesdays of the month and that seemed to slow our service for non-vegan food way down. From time of getting seated ordering our drinks and appetizers and getting said drinks we are talking 45-60 minutes then getting our meals and other 20-30 minutes. I expected the service to... More

We apologize for slow service. Actually as you mentiond it was a Wednesday vegan night and was a fully reserved evening.We tried to seat also people who have no reservations also.But no excuse, will try our best in service in future. More

I had "Indian hot" vindaloo, which is nice when it actually comes that way, garlic naan and the tandoori kebab sampler. All good by my tastes, and I seek out Indian restaurants everywhere I travel.

I stopped in here with some family on my recent trip to the Virginia Beach area. The service was attentive and rice and drinks were always refilled promptly. The food was great and there seems to be something for everyone. I ordered the Lamb Madras (which was very good). My grandmother ordered the Makhni (Butter Chicken) and my vegetarian cousin... More

Ate dinner here on a Sunday night. Two things right away had me thinking negatively of the place. First, the prices. Overpriced. Second, the service. Waitress and hostess hardly said anything, never smiled, looked as if they didn't want to be there. As for the food - I liked the food. The naan was the best (had the garlic and... More

Having recently moved to Norfolk we decided we had to find a good Indian restaurant in the area. Rajput was closest so we went there first. What a great find. We had the Rajput Curtain Raiser which has a variety of fritters, Chicken Tikka and others. This was excellent. We ordered Madras with chicken and the London Balti with seafood.... More

I've been eating here for about 10 years. It has always been a great lunch buffet. I have no idea what to order so the buffet is ideal for me. I don't always like all the selections but there are always a few that are excellent. It has be redecorated over the years and is a very attractive and interesting... More

I've been going to Rajput since it was located in Hampton in the early 2000's. Then, Rajput was as close to perfect as it could be. Everything was exceptional and nothing more could be asked of the food and service. Once relocated into Ghent, things stayed the same for a few years. However, over time the quality of everything seemed... More

Before I retired I went here once a week for the lunch buffet which is fabulous! Lots of choices. Always different and delicious. I wish it was closer to me. I bought a groupon but the Rajput in Suffolk would not accept it! Haven't been back.

This is the second time I have been here, the first time was so good I had to bring a different friend and introduce them to Rajput. Although they have a fabulous menu, I highly recommend the lunch buffet if it is your first visit. So many options, try a little of everything. If they run out of something, just... More
