Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stand out was the chilli garlic paneer which was fantastic. Fresh ginger, chilli and coriander. Everything was delicious and freshly repaired.

1st time visit and it was a great first impression. The interior is much nicer than expected and the customer service was top draw. We had the chilli lamb buhna which was amazing. The owner treated us to his special chicken curry which was unreal....Overall this place is a hidden gem.More

I have been coming here for many years, most recently two weeks ago. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and has a charming atmosphere. The food and service have remained excellent. My personal favourites are the mixed starters, lamb momo, prawn chilli garlic and peshwari naan.

We have always enjoyed dining at Rajdoot in Albert Square Manchester. New Year’s Eve my family and myself along with 18 other friends booked a table to celebrate the New year . Our experience was excellent although the place was busy we were attended by...the staff very well . As this is a family run restaurant I think they perceive customer care is the core of business . Staff were very friendly.Nothing was too much trouble. (Few of us due to driving home were not drinking so asking for endless coke and water ! ) The wine selection was very nice and there were vegetarian dishes and fish dishes for the nonmeat-eaters . The restaurant ambiance is great and find pleasant to the eye. We look forward visiting again sooner .More

I've been going to this wonderful restaurant in the heart of Manchester for decades now. Even with all the new restaurants emerging around Manchester, there's a reason why it has stood the test of time and why customers like myself keep going back for more!...The hospitality shown by this family run restaurant is second to none and they pride themselves on first class service. The owners are incredibly friendly and the restaurant has a lovely reception area where one could have a few drinks before going to their table, if they so desire. We enjoy having a few pre-drinks in this warm, welcoming reception area. In regard to their food, it's some of the best Nepalese and Indian cuisine in Manchester. I especially recommend the lamb chops or mixed starters to begin and for the main, their makhan chicken is sensational. They also have a wide selection of drinks. I'll be returning again in the near future!More

Perfect food and attentive service. They always take care of you at Rajdoot but do make sure you book so you can secure a table and they can prepare for busy nights! The Rajdoot platter was overwhelmingly good and everything we needed was quick. Their...lamb is really great quality you can tell - it just falls and melts in the mouth. Will be returning!More

It’s Friday lunchtime between Christmas and New Year. Manchester is busy. We walk into Rajdoot and there were already another 12 people in the bar area waiting to be seated. One person serving, he did a great job, and one in the kitchen. They weren’t...expecting anyone in but it’s a holiday week. So the food - non-veg thali - was ok but probably could have been better. Chicken and fish starters nicely marinated and cooked/seared. Curried prawns, chicken, lamb and veg small plates - passable but short of flavour. £91 including wine for two. I’d go again but with so much competition in Manchester, Rajdoot needs to be ready for business if it comes along.More

Nice food spoilt by terrible service and couldn’t care less attitude from the very young girls waiting on. We used to go here years ago and it was fantastic. Not anymore. Sorry.

Excellent meal as usual. Have never found another Indian like this for fresh flavour. Interesting traditional decor and friendly service. Always eat here when in Manchester. If we lived nearer would be here every week.

Came here for lunch yesterday on a rainy Manchester day and did not regret it. Ordered from the lunch menu, murgh tikka for starters which was moreish, followed by chilli chicken garlic which had a nice peppery sweetness to it, plus extras. The nan was...light and doughy, everything was really nicely cooked. Had a dessert and coffee to finish off. Really great value, I didnt need to eat for the rest of the day either. Superb.More
