Rajdoot hits 50

Award-winning Rajdoot Tandoori celebrates 50 years of service

The Rajdoot Tandoori celebrated its 50th anniversary with a party for guests and friends. In half-a-century many famous faces have passed through the restaurant, including The Beatles, Princess Margaret, Simon Cowell, and TV chefs such as Keith Floyd and Jamie Oliver. All have enjoyed Rajdoot’s exotic flavours and opulent interior – which won the Best Restaurant Design award at the English Curry Awards in 2013. Owner Manjit Gill said: “We are very proud of the achievement of running for 50 years and look forward to many more years to come.”
