Reviews are ultimately there to help people decide if they should eat somewhere or not. So lets start with that. If money is no object and you regularly eat at top restaurants then go for it. Rasoi is very different from both your traditional indian and any other haute cuisine. If you are going somewhere as a once in a while treat then there are better places in this price bracket. The three stars here represent a restaurant that wasn't the best in its price bracket (Five Fields is practically next door and is in a different league) but certainly isn't the worst either (Aqua Shard).
So what did 750 pounds for 5 people (just drinking cobra beer no wine) get you?
A mostly good tasting menu of 7 course. The lamb was great, dessert was beautiful; but there were some mistakes as well. Rose petal sorbet with rose marmalade and champagne just didn't work.;the Crab lolly was overworked so it didn't taste of anything.
The service was fine, they made an effort to explain the dishes and were helpful. My litmus test of good service though was a definite fail - did I feel I could have a conversation with them? Definitely not- they were far too rigid and formulaic.
Don't take it as all bad- bits of the food were great, the town house was very sweet and I had a very nice evening (though to be honest with pleasant company that generally takes care of itself). Just for that amount of money I would expect to be something special. Not something close to it in parts with some obvious mistakes.
