Welcome to authentic, North Indian cuisine in the heart of Manchester

Located under the depths of Albert Square, our award winning Indian Restaurant has been cooking pure North Indian food since 1966

Time-tested…

We have been running our family run restaurant since 1966 – before the smoking ban and the last time England won the world cup! We have stood the test of time by not cheating the customer with tiny portions and cheap quality ingredients. We’ve kept our promise to only deliver authentic real Indian cuisine in an ambient setting.

On the right we have an original receipt from 1976 that a loyal customer brought in. The good old days when roti’s were 20p and a curry was £1.25!

Our most popular dish: MACHAN CHICKEN

There are two kinds of people in the world, those who love Mackhan chicken and those who have never tasted it…

The beauty of Mackhan Chicken lies in the subtle tanginess and velvety texture. Our regular customers who have been coming since the 70’s swears by this dish and for the most, is the only go to curry when then join us again and again. Our secret recipe of tomato, butter, cream and cinnamon immersed with tandoori chicken breast make sit a perfect unique curry.

We’ve done it again!

Another proud achievement for Rajdoot Tandoori! High standards of hygiene and cleanliness is at the forefront of our business and we want our customers to be proud of that too. T‎he FSA has given us the top score of 5 in ‪‎food hygiene rating.


Made a large booking easy

I recently organised a large group booking (27) for dinner at the Rajdoot. Although there were T&Cs for group bookings which we had to adhere too, everything about it was excellent.The staff allowed us to get on and have a wonderful evening, without asking too many questions - they just did their very best for us. The service was the very best and the food very, very tasty. The party banquet menu's are wonderful and there was so much food. Planning the event was made easy by a lady called Suman who I corresponded with over email. Suman was very flexible and responsive (typically responding to my emails within the hour).

Group meal catering for 30 people

This was a group meal catering for 30 people. I contacted Suman by email and this was all organised in a very professional manner. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff were attentive and the service was really good. We all had the set menu and there was plenty to eat. It was served at the same time to everyone and was all hot - not a feat to be taken lightly! We had 4 vegetarians in the group and they agreed that the food was some of the best they had tasted. There was a relaxed atmosphere and nothing was rushed. Many thanks to Suman and the team - we had a brilliant night Andrea – Tripadvisor
