Time Out Says
We’ll be the first to admit that we’re usually guilty of Googling the menu at a restaurant days before heading there, selecting exactly what we’re going to get but then acting as if we haven’t while flipping through the pages after sitting down. But at Rajdhani Street, we didn’t, and we massively regretted it.
The menu is absolutely huge and has all kinds of street and fusion food from all over India, meaning only experts will know everything, and the staff don’t make it any easier. We end up picking at random, which has mixed results.
The pizza dhokla only resembles the Italian dish in that it’s smothered in cheese, but is absolutely delicious. The cheese burst maggi dosa, which sounds like something we’d make when we need to do a food shop, on the other hand, is extremely heavy and the cheese disturbingly fluorescent and flavourless.
For mains, the dal bukhara is rich and creamy, and goes down a treat, while the kashimiri dum aloo is the real stand-out dish of the meal, although the phulka we order with it lets it down.
The restaurant itself is pleasant, with cartoons lining the back wall, but nothing to shout about. We’re the only ones inside apart from a family, so we’d expect the service to be better.
This spot is definitely worth a visit if you want to try food from all over India, without the expensive flight, but don’t expect much help from the staff (which might prove problematic if you’re vegan).
