“Dependable Indian Vegetarian Joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Very generous thalis - much more than I could eat in one sitting. Really good, solid vegetarian staples - various thali options plus dosas, Indian sweets, really great shrikhand. Would be even better if they stopped using the ubiquitous onion and garlic in Indian dishes. Staff are friendly and helpful and prices very reasonable. Decor is totally utilitarian - zero atmosphere - just like in similar joints in India. You only come here for the great food - largely Gujarati-style.

“Good food with decent prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

It's good Indian food, right in the heart of the city! Prices are decently set and provide good value for Auckland standards

“Very Good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Rasoi was 10 min walk from my hotel best western, the front window was very appealing with colourful display of the Indian sweets. I decided to go for the set meal, my meal was tasty and v reasonable for the choice of two curries, roti, rice, dal, salad and popadum's, the roti`s were pre cooked. I also bought samosas and bhaji to take away for breakfast, I could warm them in the morning as my room had microwave in it which was very handy. The restaurant is bit basic, lack in ambience but a good place to get wholesome vegetarian food.

“Not many choices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

The description and reviews of this restaurant far exceed the reality. When I went for dinner in the evening, the choices were very limited, and nothing was fresh. Everything was served from the cabinets, except the dosa that came piping hot from the kitchen. I had the thali that was quite filling and spicy, but the chapatis were stale, and the spinach pakora was hard and inedible. Prices were reasonable.

“Good homely Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

loved the homely gujarathi thali , traditional western indian food. The restaurant is pure vegetarian one which was a big excitement for us. The ambiance was not very great but good quality and quantity catered.
