Bank Holiday weekend treat - took our visitors out for a meal. Made very welcome, seated quickly and drinks order taken straight away. Given time to consider menu, all meals given 10 our of ten. Delicious! Second drink order went awry but mistake rectified quickly and politely. Very good service, enjoyable meal, will return.

Lovely food, we had been last year and we enjoyed it then. We were not disappointed this time either. We had pappadoms to start and found the sauces to be especially interesting, they were not too spicy and were different to the ones we usually get in Indian Restaurants at home. Our main meal was also very nice and the chicken passanda was particularly flavoursome. The amount we got was way too much and unfortunately we could not finish all, if we had been at home we would have taken it with us. We had no room left for dessert. All in all a delicious meal and one of the highlights of our holiday

Charming staff in a comfortable restaurant with tasty food and some interesting dishes. Having spent some time in Southern India I was a little disappointed with the creaminess of my Rogan Gosh - was hoping for something a bit less subtle! That being said, my brother thoroughly enjoyed the tandoori and tikka style meats. I would recommend the mixed meat and fish sharing platters!

Went to the Rajpoot for a family celebration as had been previously and the food had been excellent. This time was no different, all of the meals were exquisite and everyone commented on the quality of the food. This coupled with excellent service and a really nice atmosphere made for a memorable evening - would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be going again soon

Food and service both excellent - there was no sense of having to rush to make room for other people which can sometimes be felt in restaurants. People were literally queuing at the door to get in. Certainly advisable to book a table! We live in Poole which is a 40/45 minute train journey away but will definitely be travelling to Dorchester to eat at Rajpoot again.

Absolutely lovely meal with excellent service. No fault of the restaurant but the ambience fell down as a result of a large group further down the restaurant, it could have been intrusive some some but we were quite happy.
Thank you
