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

We booked a table for 3 - for Sunday lunch (4 courses tasting meal option). The whole idea was to take out an Italian friend who was always a bit apprehensive about Indian cuisine in general and we wanted to get him to change his mind. And we succeeded! We are quite familiar with other Michelin starred Indian restaurants in... More

This intimate modern Indian restaurant goes from strength to strength. Perhaps Indian is not quite right as the food is a mixture of Indian influences and European. It is incredibly sophisticated and every different taste and texture is a new delight. Some of the dishes when we went last week were new and fantastic. And the wine list is not... More

We've visited this Indian restaurant before but recently had my wife's 50th birthday celebrations where we were 22 people. Right from initial contact to menu selection to dinner, the service was impeccable. We had reserved the main section of the restaurant and it became a very private and cosy dinner. The ambience was excellent. The food was good as always,... More

My wife, 15 year old daughter, and I were only in London for three days, wanted a great Indian meal before we left but did not have time to explore the many East End choices. So on the last day we decided Rasoi was our place. It was overall excellent and very satisfying. My wife was until very recently a... More

Presentation and service faultless. It was and certainly felt like having dinner in an extremely posh Chelsea town house. Formal but at same time somewhat relaxed atmosphere. Whilst refined and sophisticated, this is not for someone wanting a traditional Indian meal. Expensive, but then again this is Chelsea.

Not your traditional Indian dinner -- definitely a dining experience. The price will, however, knock your socks off so definitely save this for a special occasion.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Vegetarian tasting menu, wonderful experience with delicately spiced food elegantly presented. Excellent service. Knowledgable about the food and wine list. A real mix of clientele, couples (old and young) and families. Our only gripes would be £6.20 (nearly £7 including service charge) for a 660ml bottle of water. It's a pet hate I confess. More significantly... More

Rasoi definitely tops the bill in the upper echelons of Indian cuisine in London. The dishes were exquisite and immaculately presented. Beautiful prawns and just the right amount of spice. Exceptional service and a lovely discreet quiet place for a business lunch. The restaurant is based in a townhouse and would make a lovely spot for a date.

Expected a lot from this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Frequent visitors to Vineets Dubai establishment at the Grosvenor hotel ate there four times in one week, heaven! Food outstanding and staff very knowledgable, overall a great dining experience.
