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

Fabulous!

The food and service is excellent. The flavours and combinations work really well. There was an amuse bouche of spiced potatoes and raita that was an awesome way to kick things off with an explosion of flavour. We did the tasting menu and each dish hit the right notes.

You ring the doorbell to get in...makes it intriguing from the start! Everything that follows is truly a fabulous culinary experience which does not disappoint in any way. The menu is explained to you, if required and when your good arrives the waiter tells you what's on the plate and the best way to eat it (for example with the... More

Excellent Indian food and great presentation. Wonderful service and nice ambience. Good variety of dishes including veg and non-veg. Lives up to its Michelin star status. Meal for two not including alcohol costs about GBP 175.

Expected a typically snooty experience as it is a high-end restaurant, but I was very surprised to find the staff down to earth and friendly. We went with the Prestige menu and I was not disappointed. Each of the seven courses were immaculately presented and absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.

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

I took my girlfriend to Rasoi for valentines day dinner a few years ago and since then we had often spoken about going back. We finally did that in late April. When we went previously we had the tasting menu and until very recently, the day before our return visit actually, the tasting menu was largely unchanged which was good,... 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

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.
