My wife and I had their tasting menus (1 veggie, 1 not) and loved it, we were both very full by the end of the evening. The best Indian food we have tasted, sometimes also integrating ingredients one would not really call Indian!

To me this is the best Indian restaurant in the world. The flavors are authentic but then mixed in inventive and daring ways - so each meal is an adventure. The food is also beautiful, creative, enticing and fun. The restaurant is very small, reservations are a must. You should have a sense of adventure - this is not the... More

We haven't been for a couple of years, and two of us went for a birthday dinner. Given the great experiences from the past, we were expecting the best! The restaurant certainly isn't what it used to be. £177 for two courses and one bottle of the cheapest wine on the menu was way too much for what we got.... More

Rasoi was quite good. The food met my expectations of a Michelin one star restaurant. Service was excellent and staff made menu flexible to mix and match.

An amazing fine dining experience that was full of flavour, invention and culinary genius. Rasoi takes Indian cuisine to another level. The vegetarian dishes were incredible and the overall experience was a welcome change from other high class Indian restaurants. The service was superb, with commentary throughout the meal. The portions were generous and we felt very spoilt by Kenny... More

I have been to this restaurant over many years and have always loved the set up - it is in a converted terraced house - and the food. I had not been for a while and decided to go there with some of my family visiting London. Although the set up is the same, unfortunately the food is just not... More

Best India food I have had in a long time. This is an upscale place so if you're thinking you're going to a regular Indian restraunt. Think again... They are trained with 5 star etiquette and give you the best experience. It's small so make a reservation. You can not just show up and expect to have a table ready... More

Forget all your prejudices about Indian cooking - this is Michelin star quality Indian food. I started with Kerala prawns in a rich sauce and then had fresh salmon tandoori - both brilliant dishes. My companion had a lamb chop and started with a duck's liver; again really delicious.

Exquisite food, superb staff and cosy venue... Couldn't ask for more! Will definitely be visiting again. Every detail of the food was described by the waiter when presented and the flavours were gorgeous. It's a shame there isn't more choice but maybe the menu changes a lot to accommodate that.

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

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.
