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

Very pricey, but worth every pound. Princely service and ambiance. The flavors were other-wordly. They also offerred cookbooks, but clearly it would take about a week to recreate the meal that we had.

We had lunch here and found it one of the more memorable Indian meals ever. The building has housed other restaurants over the years and this time its quiet elegance is a treat. Because a la carte is out of our price range we had the set lunch menu and were bowled away by the flavors, presentation, and little treats... More

Although it had been some time since we visited Rasoi, our previous visit left us very satisfied with the excellent preparation of food and the "feel" of the whole establishment. True, prices were high, but this is London and not all that disproportionate relatively speaking. It still feels somewhat like you are visiting a friend as you step into the... More

Set inside a charming townhouse in Chelsea, the moment you ring the bell to enter you feel as though you have stepped inside someone's home. We were greeted by friendly and attentive staff that looked after us very well throughout our meal. The dim lighting and quietness of the dining room made it an intimate setting for a romantic meal-... More

Had dinner at Rasoi on Saturday evening, it is by far the best restaurant I have ever been to. The food was nothing less than world class, had 5 courses in total of which 2 of them were complimentary dishes from the chef, I have never been to a restaurant before any received 2 complimentary dishes. The presentation of every... More

We went to Rasoi for dinner to celebrate our anniversary and looked forward to be wowed by some amazing cooking. The look and feel of the restaurant (situated inside a town house in Chelsea) is amazing. One feels they have been transported to a completely different place with the mood lighting and the Indian-themed knick knacks. At dinner the choices... More

Having travelled often in India this lunch brought back happy memories of our meals - with the added bonus of feeling comfortable to eat meat. The location, welcome and service are all excellent. The restaurant was quiet which we quite enjoyed. The three or four course lunch menu is varied, and well presented, we all loved it. - I am... More

We were looking forward to a dining experience prior to going to Ronnie Scott's Jazz as a late birthday treat from our daughter. The restaurant was in an intimate quaint surroundings - the ground floor of a town house with limited space hence small number of diners. Food was ok and very pricey and in my view "Indian" only because... More

We were really looking forward to our Christmas 'work' evening out having read such glowing reviews on TA & Sunday Times top 100. We were given a room for 6 which was freezing and heating didn't work. We moved to a smaller room which eventually got warmer. Not a great start for a Michelin star eatery. Would have been nice...

From the outside I was not sure whether this was a private house or restaurant. By the time I left I knew it was not only a restaurant but an outstanding one. The food was a kaleidoscope of flavours and the staff were like actors preparing your meal with a little bit of theatre. A wonderful meal ( I would... More
