Definitive Reviews of London’s Indian Restaurants

Rajdoot 7

One of the criteria when choosing an Indian restaurant must be: does it pass the “smell test”? In other words, are the aromas that emanate from within sufficiently tempting to lure you across the threshold.

I had walked past the Rajdoot on several occasions and had always been tempted by the olfactory experience. So when I finally ventured inside, I was keen to find out whether the cooking would live up to this advance publicity.

Fortunately I was not to be disappointed. After a starter of mixed tandoori delights we shared a Chicken Jalfrezi and something called a Chicken Patai. The latter was a sweet, medium-spiced dish. The chicken in both dishes was very succulent and the taste was good.

Service is efficient and friendly. Many reviewers on other websites have commented that Rajdoot is either expensive or over-priced. This was not my experience — I thought it represented good value for money.
