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

I had the opportunity to select a restaurant for a retirement dinner with 10 colleagues from around the UK at short notice. I chose the Rajpoot because it was close to where the team were staying and we had loved the previous meals there.

As a local to Dorchester we used to come here often. Loved the atmosphere and the food. However haven't been for a few years and thought we would treat ourselves and reminisce. No longer cozy booths where you had privacy and didn't bother other diners, but now all open plan, so as a party of two we were up against... More

I've been coming here for years and years, and can honestly tell you that it is the choice Indian restaurant in Dorchester- they do the classics and a modern sort of fusion Indian cooking, amazing stuff.

the restaurant is nice, good atmosphere, friendly staff, good service, good choice of dishes. for dorchester, which is not not really over exciting for food choices, this is a nice enough place to spend an evening with family or friends. I just prefer food to be more authentic and 'honest' rather than fusion. love the naan choices, the curries are... More

Excellent menu, including for vegetarians. We ate there on Friday evening - very busy but excellent service. Great ambiance. Good beers. Not cheap, but worth it for a special night out.

A much needed pit stop, mid way through a long Friday night trip back to home. Menu a tad pricey but service and food all good as reflected in other TA reviews. No complaints here, therefore.

Rajpoot has always served good quality Indian food, though unfortunately no longer offers a buffet lunch which was great value. There is now a fixed price lunch menu at a reasonable price. The food and flavours are great, however quantity is modest, even for lunch. Evening menu is expensive and I have never been.

Really nice meal tender beef starter although the calamari was a little chewy. Delicious meat and fish platter succulent prawns and fish perfectly cooked. The sauce beneath the food was a little too much and the sauce drizzled over the top was unnecessary and would be better left off. Nice rogan too although could have had a bit more punch.... More
