Again it was the most delicious food. Not a normal run of the mill Indian restaurant. It’s taken us a few visits to get used to the format of the dishes that are very generous. Really good food. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Had dinner here with a friend on Saturday, 16 June. SUPERB!! Best Indian meal I have had in years. Staff were friendly and helpful - literally could fault absolutely nothing. If you are ever in the area, it is not to be missed!

Have to say this is one the best Indian Restaurants I’ve visited. Amazing food beautiful lamb, chicken and vegetable dishes, fantastic service from lovely friendly staff. Very much worth paying an extra few pounds for quality food and great service.

Rajpoot is a very classy Indian restaurant in the town centre. The staff were very polite, efficient and knowledgeable. The menu was very varied with some dishes I have not seen elsewhere. Service was prompt and very good. A very nice experience.

Popped in here after a film, on our last night in Dorchester. Bigger inside than it looks from the front, but with weirdly low ceilings. Good varied menu with some different things you don't normally see on the menu. Good friendly service, yummy curry, big...More

We visited as a family of four early one evening, and the restaurant was packed. Despite the number of people, the service was efficient and attentive. The menu has a number of interesting dishes in addition to the usuals. Sensible prices. Well worth a visit,
