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.

Wonderful quiet birthday lunch

I went with my partner for low-key birthday lunch in Vineet Bhatia's celebrated restaurant. While it's usually packed in the evenings, lunchtime is actually very quiet, and we were the only people in the small front dining room - it felt like a private lunch. We chose from the reasonably priced... read more

We celebrated my Husbands birthday at Rasoi with friends. As a group of 7, we had to be seated in the smallest of the private rooms. We were a little concerned that this may have lacked atmosphere but that was not the case at all. Our only suggestion would have been a little background music as it was very quiet.... More

One of my favorites in London! Am part French and the Fois Gras naan dish is to die for! A great place for couples or a small group. But not too quick, so plan not to start to late.

Celebrating a birthday with friends, all of who enjoy good food, we were spoiled and pampered by the service and the food. The menu is inventive and playful without disappearing into some spiral of self-serving art - the focus is squarely of taste. The quality is present in every bite. Already looking forward to my next visit.

After having the best dining experience of my life in Indego by Vineet in Dubai, I decided to take my husband to this one for his birthday. So we traveled from Scotland down to London for the weekend to have dinner here. All I can say is if you have been to Indego in Dubai 1st do not go to... More

I went to Rasoi one evening for dinner with my other half and came out greatly surprised and impressed. Tucked in the corner of a street off Kings Road, it has a discrete entrance and a nice cosy but posh atmosphere inside. Despite what I thought was a high price, we opted for the tasting menu and were not disappointed.... More

My boyfriend and I visited Rasoi for a mid week dinner. Set in a backstreet off Sloane Square it is quite a surprise to find an Indian restaurant here. Inside the decor was delightful and totally appropriate for an Indian restaurant of this quality. On seeing the tasting menu we opted for that despite the price. We were not disappointed... More

After several days of overpriced London experiences, I thought I was inured to the crazy prices throughout the city. Rasoi is on another level, though. The tasting menu is 89 pounds per person - without wine! After I got over the sticker shock (and selected from the a la carte menu, thank you very much) I thoroughly enjoyed the meal... More

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. The lamb for the main course (piece from the rack and... 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.
