Description: Rasoi means 'kitchen' and, in this case, also means fabulous, award-winning, bravura cooking. Vineet Bhatia is the chef who won Zaika the first Michelin star ever for an Indian restaurant, now he has opened this intimate, upmarket, charming townhouse restaurant in Chelsea. Rooms are smart modern with splashes of colourful Indian saris and artwork. The 'evolved Indian' menu may include dishes like starter of assorted sea scallops which are spice-crusted, chilli, sesame and onion seed, main course of grilled spice marinated duck escalopes with hot tamarind chutney, sauteed garlic shiitake mushrooms and onion fritters, and pudding of poached pear, ginger, and yoghurt cheesecake with blueberries and fennel sorbet. Superb wines

This was my first Indian meal and I was very impressed. The staff are wonderful and describe the food so you know exactly what you are having. I had the lamb shank which was delicious with a delicate flavour. For dessert we shared a selection of ice creams which disappointedly were served in small cardboard tubs, suggest they use small...

We chose to have lunch at Rasoi, because the prices are more affordable at lunch time. The service was very good and professional. The food was incredible. Before we ordered, we were served an Indian bread called Papadum that although it was fried, was not greasy. It was served with two dips: mango chutney with a taste of turmeric, and... More

Literally just the best meal ever. Had duck, nearly died (in a good way). Chocolate sharing dessert well worth it, but make sure your fellow diner is prepared to give you a hand. Michelin quality food but definitely not Michelin quantity portions. Fullest I think I've ever been! The little touches such as the richest, tastiest mushroom soup (in a... More

Excellent, delicious and well-presented Indian food. I'm glad that quality Asian food is getting more and more recognition these days, and Rasoi made it a very enjoyable evening. Particularly nice was the medium spiced lamb of the prestige menu, and the wonderful flavour combination with the Barolo wine. Rather pricey, though.

We went there just to try different Indian good as to be honest I'm not a big fan of curry, so pleased we did as the food is absolutely delicious and not the usual Indian. The staff was really profesional, we'll return soon for sure.

On the recommendation of friends we booked for a midweek night. We opted for the two course option. The amuse-bouches and starter were very tasty however my main of lamb shank was very disappointing. It was bland totally lacking in any novelty. The Maitre d' spotted that it had not been eaten and offered an alternative. I declined and he... More

We loved everything about this meal. It is certainly pricey (we decided against the more extensive tasting menu, though it tempted us, because it was more than we could afford), but it was worth every penny: sophisticated, beautifully presented, extremely unusual, and always utterly tasty. It's the kind of food that you want to photograph (as indeed I did) and... More

We booked a table for 3 - for Sunday lunch (4 courses tasting meal option). The whole idea was to take out an Italian friend who was always a bit apprehensive about Indian cuisine in general and we wanted to get him to change his mind. And we succeeded! We are quite familiar with other Michelin starred Indian restaurants in... More
