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

We have eaten here several times and been very happy with our choice of dishes that have been slightly different to usual Indian food. Our only criticism is that it is fairly cramped and therefore noisy, onthe other hand it is always bisy which is very good to see. The staff are always pleasant and welcoming.

I have dined here a number of times and the food is extremely good. Every plate I have tried has looked and tasted fantastic. So why disappointing? As I have had many good meals, I suggested the Rajpoot for a team meal. There was a specific Xmas menu and they took a booking for 12 people. I mention this as... More

Visited several times. Nice food and well presented. Service wasn't as good as normal and shame about frozen desserts they use slightly lets it down.

We went on a Groupon voucher for two and eventually we found the restaurant as the numbering system was a little strange and parking was poor and probably always will be if you are a stranger to the area. However everything afterwards just got better and better. The food was wonderful and was served in the dishes you ate from... More
