Didn't want yet another night in another hotel so decided to explore the wonders of Illminster......! ....That didn't take long at 8pm on a Tuesday evening. Is anything open? Didn't fancy fish and chips nor pub grub so the only other establishment the I could find on my extensive 10 mins ramblings of Illminster was the Rajpoot. Didn't look much... More

We visited one weekend for a romantic night out and were delighted with our Rogan Josh Balti and Dupiaza curries and starters, and the price was surprisingly cheap and great value for the food quality and attentive waiting staff. Lovely! Only the onion bhaji's were a bit tasteless and cardboardy. It's a 'bring your own alcohol' restaurant and I don't... More

Went in for a takeaway but sat down instead! Very pleasent staff and so clean and inviting. Small and intimate dining in small town. The food came quickly and was one of the best Indian meals I have had. Please try if you are in ilminster.

My family visited this restaurant 2 nights whilst on holiday. The first visit the food was lovely although quite rushed in choosing by the Manager despite only 1 other table in there. On our second visit my teenage son wanted the chicken Korma which he had thoroughly enjoyed on our previous visit but the Manager was so insistent he tried... More

We were staying nearby with friends after attending a wedding and so visited here in the evening. We weren't that hungry, having already had a three-course wedding breakfast at lunchtime so we only had main courses but they were lovely. I had a fish dish which was gorgeous - I'd asked for advice as to what to have and after... More

Visited Ilminster for a couple of days and popped into this restaurant on a Monday evening and had one of the tastiest curries I have had. The restaurant is small but the excellent food makes it highly recommended. Bring your own alcohol as non is sold on the premises. It seemed very popular for take aways.

Manager? Was very pushy and got us to change our orders, we relented. Obviously they were more expensive. Food was okay . We wanted to pay by card as locals using the takeaway had but he wouldn't accept them and I had to go to a cash point. Not impressed.

Excellent quality , authentic Indian food . Especially recommend the Rajpoot Special dishes. In the depths of a small Somerset town of Ilminster this is a gem ! Have had 3 takeaway meals as I live locally 3 miles away and have really enjoyed them all. Each occasion was with different group of family members and every time the comments... More

One of the best curries I've had (and I'm a London snob who's tried many around the world) a genuine surprise. Flavoursome dishes which are not too greasy or salty and a great standard. The specials Raj Handi and Hyderbadi Khaba particularly delicious Highly recommended!
