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.

Visited on a weeknight. First impression of being whisked in by a doorman from a discreet townhouse entrance were excellent. The decor and ambience of the restaurant were top-notch - intimate, small rooms with interesting but classy decoration. Service was exemplary - the waiting stadff were knowledgeable and showed pride and interest in the food. They were polite without being... More

My brief for selecting a venue for my wife's birthday celebration was a top-end Indian restaurant with character and intimacy. Reading other Tripadvisor reviews, that seemed to rule out places like Benares, Gymkhana and Tamarind, because either those environments seemed too generically crisp/contemporary, or too many people had commented on being squeezed in and rushed out. So we chose Rasoi,... More

We were taken to Rasoi in Chelsea as guests of friends who prefer to eat only in the best places, wherever they happen to be in the world - Rasoi in Chelsea was recommended to them on a recent visit to Dubai. The food was far too ambitious and fiddly: all display and then explanation of what was what when... More

We went for dinner with friends. My mixed grill starters were very tasty, my friends scallops were just ok, the meat (duck, lamb and chicken) were very nice, but reminded little of an Indian cuisine. More like a super fine dining with some Indian flavours. The service was very attentive and all went smooth and pleasant. The bill came to... More

Very original Indian food, very modern and without the over reliance on gee! Lovely service in surroundings that were both intimate and very posh.

I had a delightful lunch at Rasoi. I like the ambience of a town house it felt like home. I had mustard chicken with white tomato sauce and coriander rice (the portion is small, two pieces only), the taste was delicious and full of flavor. The waiter presented me a complimentary pineapple soup (shot size), which was delicious, and full... More

Visited Rasoi last night for my husbands birthday. I can't believe that we haven't discovered this amazing place before! The restaurant is to be found in a lovely georgian townhouse in Chelsea. The interior is contemporary but cosy. We chose the tasting menu which consists of seven delicious courses. Each dish was beautifully presented. From the foie gras with lemon... More

We went to Rasoi for lunch on Sunday, I believe at the moment they aren't open every day for lunch. As we had to go on to a show we booked an early table and so had the restaurant to ourselves for awhile. Normally this would feel a bit strange as you are surrounded by empty tables but the restaurant... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
