My friend and I were in London for a girls' weekend and had dinner at Rasoi. We opted for the starter plus a main option. We were pleasantly surprised when we also received a small pre-appetizer soup. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff was charming making it a really... read more

Rasoi is Indian food done so very well and with a creative twist. We enjoyed our Sunday lunch which is a little cheaper than dinner time. The servings are small but the quality more than makes up for it. Thanks!

We went to the restaurant to have dinner.. The staff was good however he wanted to sell everything in the menu.. We order mix plater of starter, lamb bryani and chicken masala with bread and 2 soft drinks.. The bill was 136 Pounds which was too expensive compared to the taste of food.

Rasoi A feast for the eyes is a cliché, but when you look at the dishes served here your senses are assailed first by the visual beauty, then the spicy, perfumed aromas and you cannot resist tucking in and savouring the wonderful flavours. There is much to be said for traditional curry-style meals and there are still very good restaurants... More

We read about Rasoi in a German food magazine and decided to try it for a romantic dinner on our short trip to London. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is small and cosy providing a great ambience. The dining room we were seated in is decorated in dark but warm colors. It feels very homely. Service is extraordinary. Very... More

We came to Rasoi with some trepidation having read the diversity of reviews here. But our party of 5 came away well pleased without exception and somewhat puzzled as to why others have been disappointed. We steered clear of the prestige tasting menu options, choosing a wide range from the a la carte. We found the dishes pleasingly classical with... More

Despite the high rating of this restaurant, our experience was disappointing. The food is well-prepared but not exceptional, albeit a significant step up from the typical Indian take-out places that are ubiquitous in London. All the courses were very mild, and there were no choices that offered anything spicy. The service was excessively attentive to the point of being uncomfortable,... More

Booked Rasoi for my Dad's 50th Birthday dinner, I had read reviews and looked at their website and even had Rasoi recommended to me. Unfortunately in summary it was a disappointed experience. We entered the restaurant to the gentle hum of the heating unit, no music, no atmosphere you could hear a penny drop. The restaurant is nicely decorated looking... More

Came here with business colleagues, and enjoyed the dinner immensely. It is a little quiet and stiff, but the food is very good. Is it stellar, out of this world - no. It feels like single star Michelin cooking, a little rigid (I don't know if it has a star or not - I should google). As others have said... More

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.

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.
