We visited the restaurant tonight and we were well impressed with the food and the customer service. The only issue was the slow service, taking almost an hour to receive our main courses on our moderately busy Friday night ... staff were particularly good, especially the boss man! Will definitely visit again! Thanks :)

Had read the reviews before booking table. Yes staff are friendly, menus were quite grubby, certainly needed a clean. Personally I thought choice was fairly limited and nothing out of the ordinary. Meals were not what I had expected but, as I say it's all down to personal taste. Might suit others but not for me

A group of 7 of us had met up from all over to have a get together and we chose to eat at Rajdoot. The food was delicious and seemed to be well priced (wine was a little on the steep side). One member of the group didn't realise his main dish had mushrooms in (which he turned his nose... More

Returning to Manchester after a gap of almost 30 years I have recently had several meals at their current venue on Albert Square.
