Rajdoot serves up an extensive selection of authentic Indian fare including tandoori, curry, and more than 15 vegetarian entrees in a cozy environment marked by elaborate wall art, colourful dishes, and mood-enhancing soft music. Bands of merrymakers can embark upon gustatory sojourns and decide on a song to hum while chewing over appetizers such as paneer pakora that renders taste buds speechless with marinated homemade cheese fritters and chutney. Engage in verbal fencing between bouts of actual fencing afforded by the seekh kebab afghanistani, a vertical assembly of marinated minced beef arranged on a musketeer-worthy skewer. Mandibles remain in motion as they devour the house specialty, Rajdoot invitation azamani, a butter-sauce-slathered chicken tikka dish; herbivorous palates disprove an oracle’s predictions of scurvy with a serving of the saag aloo, a mildly spiced spinach dish.
Sides of Naan Khyber Pass and basmati rice serve as tried-and-true entree accompanists, dutifully escorting main dishes to mouths. Chattering diners and sweet teeth alike fall into awed silence with the delivery of a dessert such as a gulab jamun that gilds creamy pastry in a patina of balmy honey sauce.
Instrumental Indian music provides a rhythm as tandoor chefs knead fresh naan in Rajdoot's open kitchen, filling the restaurant with the scent of authentic spices and freshly baked bread as diners watch them work. A tandoor heats chicken marinated in yogurt and coated in mild spices, and nearby spiced curries bubble around pull-apart cuts of butter chicken, beef, or lamb. Mixed vegetables dance in a drizzle of flavourful sauce in vegetarian options or build their own rice fort in biryani dishes. For dessert, tropical fruits lend their tang to fresh ice cream, and balls of fried dough do somersaults through a shower of warm honey.
