Rasoi Kitchen reviews from OpenTable diners
  • We went to Rasoi for my boyfriend's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/6/2013
    We went to Rasoi for my boyfriend's birthday and tried out the Big Taste menu- we'll definitely be back. The decor and atmosphere inside was awesome, though we were a little unsure why were shoved in a tiny table against the back wall when the restaurant was half empty on a Wednesday night.. Regardless, the chana masala was some of the best I've ever tasted and the server was friendly without being too invasive. My only complaint would be that I was served the wrong appetizer, but the fish pakoras were so good I didn't even mind that much. Indian is one of my favourite cuisines and Rasoi does it right- we'll be back soon!

    Rasoi is one of our neighbourhood restaurants. We love it. They were short staffed that night and the server handled it all so well. She is always friendly and positive. The food is always excellent here. A nice twist on East Indian fine dining. Great wine, great food, great service. Went with great company, my husband = Great Night!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    There is a reason Rasoi is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. Josh and his staff nail it every single time. The food was outstanding as always, service attentive and the vibe intimately energetic. In our party of four, we had two "high-maintainance" diners; one celiac, one paleo. Rasoi handled us no problem without missing a beat. If you haven't tried Rasoi, and you like "modern Indian" cuisine, you should.

    This was my 4th time to Rasoi and the second time our group has gone there. The food is wonderful - flavourful and hot. The service has always been excellent. We have gone for lunch, for an after-event dessert and twice for group meals (6 people max). I will definitey return and will recommend. Its worth the trip, as I don't live near the restaraunt.

    Dined on 12/31/2012
    It was New Years Eve so the restaurant was busy. I would not go there again for New Year. We live in the neighborhood so I have been to this restaurant in the past. We try to support community businesses. When we booked on line, it stated that each guest would receive a complementary glass of proseco with dinner. We were told in the restaurant that this did not apply for that evening (?) when we pushed it a bit our server did state we could talk to the manager we let it go. some restaurants might have just served us the proseco to provide good customer relations. May sound trite but somehow there was a dismissive attitude. We could well afford to buy wine which we did, so that was not the issue.

  • Only fair dining experience.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/13/2012
    My friend and I agreed Rasoi was only fair dining experience, sub par if one considers the price. It is expensive for what you get. For instance, the Grilled Paneer Salad, for $8, has four tiny pieces of tasteless tomatoes (even tho advertised as 'organic heirloom' they looked and tasted like local grocery store variety tomatoes), & a grilled paneer cheese that I couldn't eat (neither could my friend) so we left most of it. As that's 2/3rds of the salad, the remaining cucumbers didn't add anything. Other servings were ok; overall nothing to go back again for, & the wine was subpar (for $32 had a biting, oily aftertaste). Service was ok, and heating was sub-par as we alternated between too warm, or a chill.

    This is an intimate dining experience, with a welcoming ambiance, complete with a candle on each diner's table. Food, complete with two wonderful appetizers, was very flavorful, artistically presented, and demonstrated some unique spices and creative use of ingredients. (I.e. slivers of fresh ginger). Service improved as the evening progressed, after an initial long period of time without any attention to providing beverages.)

    Rasoi was a super place to walk from home in Altadore ... and celebrate 19 years of wedded bliss!!! It was our first time at Rasoi, and I'm pretty sure that I impressed my bride with this choice of restaurants that she will be by my side for at least another 19 years! (She was astounded that you could have carrots for dessert ... and LOVE it!) Thanks for the GREAT service!

    No problem getting a table, and were well looked after during the meal. Seating was comfortable, but could be a little cramped if the restaurant was full. There was a good variety of dishes to select from, and the mains had just the right amount of spice for us. The dessert was excellent.

    Calamari was good but not much there. It needed some bread or something. Butter chicken good but not enough chicken. Shrimp dish good but only shrimp, sauce and bread. It needs a veggie or two. Good wine and beer. Good service but only one server so ours was slower than other people's dish. Baby crying was annoying; especially when they would not do anything to sooth the child.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    The car park area was full but plenty of adjacent on-street parking. The restaurant is a most pleasant space with low noise levels and a nice vibe. Service was excellent - just the right level of attentiveness. We chose Fish Pakora to satrt and a Butter Chickn and Chana Masala to follow. The Pakora was good and used salmon in this case, being accompanied by some salad leaves. It could have been spicier for my taste but was very flavourful and enjoyable. The curries that followed were perfect with the heat 'cooked-in' rather than spiced-up with the latter addition of chilli. Each had wonderful blend of tastes and aromas, the chana being the more diverse. The accompanying rice also was beautifully fragrant, cooked with subtle spices.

    Sauce too watery -had butter chicken and coconut curry chicken, and shrimp in coconut curry appetizer. No flavor in the shrimp itself, was just tossed into sauce rather than sauteed in it it seemed. plus not impressed with flavor of main- package mixed? Butter chicken tasted like it was on a canned tomato soup base. Not real butter chicken sauce. Cutting corners?? Rice mixed with frozen vegetables? not impressed at all for the price. Very bad.

    Rasoi is our favourite neighbourhood restaurant. It is one of very few where friends may converse without yelling over loud music. The food is always freshly prepared, beautifully presentd and delicious. My favourite is the creamy butter chicken and the hotchkiss tomato salad. Flavours are clean, pleasantly balanced in spiciness. We always recommend it as a place to go in The Loop.

    Our party of five really enjoyed our evening at Rasoi's. It was a quiet night there so can't really rate the noise level but as it a small place, I don't think it would be too noisy with more patrons. The food was excellent and each of us enjoyed our appetizers and meals. The waitress was attentive, friendly and knew the menu. The wine list is not extensive but a good variety and not pricey. We'll definitely be back!
