This is a small neighborhood restaurant with a stylised Indian menu. The staff seemed somewhat overwhelmed when it was busy tonight, so service was a bit spotty. The first appetizer I ordered was no longer available, but it hasn't been taken off the menu, nor did anyone tell us when we received our menus. We ordered the tiger prawns with coconut curry and naan - very good. The fish pakora (salmon) was also very tasty, but there were only 4 tiny pieces - almost bite size, for $12. The phyllo "beggar's purse" with squash and corn on a bed of sliced vegetables was okay, but a bit dry and not satisfying. The braised lamb shank and lamb chop was very good, but it should be for $36. I'm torn about this restaurant. I think that the interesting variations made to Indian cuisine are not really worth the price.

Food is marketed as fusion and is a mix of Indian and Canadian food
To some extent it works but a bit overpriced for what we had

The restaurant itself is quite small and almost has a cafe feel, although it's nicely decorated.

Considering the portions are on the smaller side the price is a little high but the food is very tasty and excellently cooked.

If you're hungry this may not be your best option but I'd recommend it if you're looking for something different.

We have been in Calgary for just over a year. When we arrived we did our best to sample a several Indian restaurants. No matter where we tried we were hopelessly disappointed. Having driven by rasoi a couple of times, we decided to give it a try. Since then we have been back about ten times and have never been disappointed. The food and service have been consistently excellent. We have been extremely pleased with each of our menu selections and only wish we had decided to go to rasoi sooner.
