I've eaten here at least 20 times and have to say the food has been fantastic every time. So much flavour in all the dishes, even down to the poppadoms that are perfectly crispy; its by far my favourite Indian in Manchester.

This family run restaurant is a beautiful haven in the very centre of Manchester where everything is made to order and well worth the time it takes, time to enjoy an ice cold draught Cobra from the well stocked bar or a nice Syrah from the reasonably priced wine list. Six of us ate at Rajdoot last Sunday after ignoring... More

A soggy Friday night in Manchester we walked from our hotel towards Albert Square (scene of Christmas market). Next to it was this restaurant with street entrance leading to basement location. Modern inside and with a good atmosphere. Nice welcome and good service throughout. Thought the menu was slightly limited choice wise with no real tandoori dishes for example. What... More

Description
Rajdoot Manchester has been serving delicacies to customers for nearly 50 years and was the first Tandoori restaurant in Europe to open in 1966. Located under the depths of Albert Square, Rajdoot Manchester gives a sense of escapism to Moglai inspired interiors, where guests can enjoy an authentic dining experience in an atmospheric and ambient setting. With a central Manchester location, Rajdoot can also be adapted into a space for your corporate event or office party. We specialise in delivering great value, high quality 2-3 course menus and have delivered to the likes of Co-operative, BMW, PwC, United Utilities and many law chambers. Additionally, we host the annual Curry Club networking event and have been for the last 33 years.
