Was horrendous from arrival to departure.
We arrived 5 minutes early, our table was booked for 7.45pm, to be told our table had been given to another couple who arrived late for their booking so we had to wait half an hour to be seated. We were finally seated which was near a table of 10 lively lads who were shouting obsceneties, our order was taken for food, we waited an hour and 10 minutes before our food arrived, which may i say, was not up to much. There was no social distancing measures in place within the restaurant, very concerning, service was poor. We didn't even finish our meal and decided to leave. My husband went to pay, whilst doing so he expressed how poor the dining experience was, the response he was given was " it is Saturday night sir". Absolutely disgusted in this establishment, we will never return to the Rajpoot, ever.

The starter was superb
Very busy night
Curry main course was bland
Possibly because of restaurant being full

Service was efficient but we were never made to feel welcome, almost to the point of being an inconvenience. The food was hot but disappointingly bland and for a large, almost empty restaurant, some people were seated at tables well under 2 metres apart.

The food was the best Indian we'd ever had. The pakoras (onion bhajis) were something else.

Outstanding place. We stopped just to break our journey from Sussex to Devon. Very easy to find, free parking (after 6pm) just across the road and a really friendly welcome.

The selection was very good, the portions huge and the naan bread (Peshwari in my case) outstanding - some of the best I’ve tasted.

We will certainly be going back.

The food was as always outstanding. The service was slow, however I will say this wasn’t necessarily the fault of the restaurant as it was far busier than it usually is because it is participating in the eat out scheme. This obviously had a knock on effect on how quickly the staff are able to serve. The food was all piping hot and fresh so ultimately it was worth the wait. I will say the soft drinks are disappointing though as the Diet Coke is clearly out of a bottle as it is flat and warm when you receive it and the ice added melts so quickly that it adds nothing but water to the drink and given the prices I feel they could do better in the area even if it was just serving canned drinks at least they would be fizzy

There was not social distancing in there at all it felt unsafe . The tables were close together and not any distance apart . They clearly did not follow the Covid 19 safe rules my husband and I thought the food very good but won’t eat there again as the tables far to close and no room to move

Food good, service not , staff were abrupt and certainly didn't make us feel welcome. Tables were not socially distanced luckily we got there earlier but if we had arrived an hour later would not have stayed.

Food was excellent and couldnt fault it, the staff were very polite.
I only have one criticism and that is just to say my partner and I prefer it when the food is brought out in separate dishes so you can choose how much you want on your plate at one time or try out individual bits and pieces, unfortunately the meal comes out already dished up on the plate ...so took the fun out of it, people might prefer that but each to their own, the restaurant itself is really nice and my partner and I will definately go again

Lovely food, well presented and polite staff. It was noisy on this particular evening with a couple of boisterous tables and if I could have chosen I wouldn't have sat right next to the door as you do tend to get an icy blast every time someone goes in or out.

We read the recent reviews and though it was worth a try. Quickly seated and served. Food was of a very good standard and also accommodated our request for items not on the menu. Staff we’re polite and attentive. Overall a very good experience. Would definitely recommend and will be returning.

This was our second visit and we weren’t disappointed. We were staying in Poole but the 30min journey was worth it. The food is excellent quality and the portions are good. It’s like fine dinning but Indian style we will be visiting again.
