    Really good food. The lamb shank was tasty, but very hard to eat. The meat was hard to cut off the bone. The beef kababs were rather dry. The lamb chops were excellent, as were the prawns.

    India's Rasoi served excellent, authentic Indian Food. Their Naan was fresh and hot and melted in your mouth. My husband had the lamb shank and it was tender and fell off the bone and seasoned perfectly. I had the vegetarian platter and everything on it was wonderful. Their quirky drink menu was great. I highly recommend the mango cosmopolitan!

    I read a lot of negative reviews before I went to Rasoi, which is all the more confusing now that I've been there. The service was absolutely great for the entirety of the dining experience, everyone at Rasoi worked diligently to make sure we felt welcome. The food was similarly excellent. My partner and I split Baingan Bharta and Aloo Matar, and we were especially impressed by the eggplant. I tried a bit of my partner's rose-flavored cocktail and I enjoyed that as well. The price is very reasonable for the portions, neither one of us could finish a dish by ourselves. I will say that the samosa appetizer was a little overpriced at $5 for two samosas, but that's the only thing I could think to criticize.

    My first time here and my friend's first time at an Indian restaurant. The waiter was weird...discouraged us from getting the "meal" combos - which was great.. Then didn't check on us after food arrived....i needed a fork. When time for dessert he tried to sway our decision. Very weird. My friend thinks it was because there were no men at the table. It's possible...different culture.

    We really like India Rasoi but the other night things were just off. The Vegetable Biryani was not good - neither of us ate it - and we mentioned it to the waiter expecting to have it taken off the check but it wasn't, which was disappointing at $12.

    My husband and I took two friends here for dinner, one from India. We eat in Indian restaurants frequently, and we always seek out Indian restaurants when we travel. My husband said that the food at Rasoi was so good that we might be in a different city trying out a new restaurant. We had two dishes we had not seen before, one a spinach puree with peas and another a chicken kebab where the chicken was a bright green. What a treat!

    When India Rasoi was just a tiny little storefront around the corner it was amazing, but ever since they moved onto Euclid it's been my favorite dinner spot. The décor is beautiful and creates a great mood. The wait staff is more than accommodating. Best yet, the food retained the authentic flavor it had when it was just a tiny little mom/pop place.

    Rasoi has a really nice menu with great eats! The samosas were puffy and delicious and the fish curry had a lovely flavor. We also tried the eggplant dish that infused a smokiness very well. Mango creme brulee and Kheer ended the meal and both were outstanding.

    This was our first time to this restaurant. Very much liked the food. I am a vegetarian; my wife is not. We both found plenty of selections on the menu. Service was a little slow and, initially, our waiter was not very friendly, but he warmed up by the end of the evening. Will definitely go back. FYI - there is convenient public parking right next to the restaurant and it was not expensive.

    It happened to be a great night to sit on the patio; long relaxing dinner where we were not rushed but attended to at a comfortable pace. Always consistent I. Flavor, presentation and tenured friendly servers. The spices, textures, temperatures of every dish were on point. Highly recommend the mango cosmos and vegetable chittnand, my favorites.

    Food was very good. One thing I was disappointed by was the restaurant making samosas in the morning so by dinner time they didn't as good as they could have. Reheating/frying causes the dough to harden. They made good on it however, but just wanted that authentic taste!

    Our server was very unprofessional. She brought out one entree and then 15 minutes later the other arrived. She only came back twice to check on us the whole time we were there. She brought our check about half way through our meal. We let it set on the table because we were not finished eating yet. She came by twice to pick up the check and I had to tell her that we had not finished yet. The THIRD time she came back she told us that 'she was off work over an hour ago and she needed to finish her paperwork.' We were not asked if we wanted dessert or another cocktail. I finally signed our check and we left. Very rude and terrible service. It was a first date and the service we received ruined our evening. Highly unlikely to refer.

    I had a wonderful experience at India's Rasoi. I love love love Indian food and am an avid foodie so this was a real delight for me! I love that there is an online reservation option but even despite this, we were sat very quickly, and on a Saturday night no less! The ambiance in the whole place is very modern and chic but not stuffy. It was actually not too cold in there so I was able to sit and relax and actually enjoy my food. The server was very nice and attentive. He was a little slow coming over to us to get out food order but I appreciate that he didn't hover. The staff overall was polite and professional. The food was amazing! I ordered the samosas as an appetizer and it was delicious! The vegetarian dish I ordered was also great!

    We arrived at 6pm as planned and were received and seated promptly. The server made good suggestions for appetizers and drinks. Our table was located such that every time restaurant door was opened, a blast of cold air would hit us. So some tables, including one we selected, would not be the best choice on cold wintery nights. Appetizers and drinks were very good. The food followed shortly and was excellent. Indian dishes can be laden with gravy and can get heavy. All items we ordered were devoid of excess fat and tasted fresh and tasteful and certainly unlike the typical Indian restaurants serving North Indian food. Overall ambiance is nice and upscale. we would highly recommend Rasoi.
