Gujarati Rasoi Ratings and Reviews
The food was very inventive and tasty, a little expensive and portions not particularly large. The place gets very busy and booking is recommended. The service and ambience was good and relaxed. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for the food quality and we will be visiting again.
It is a quirky little restaurant with a beautiful food menu and drinks menu.
The service was quite excellent, the food was great in the starters, not so great (but still good) on the mains, and excellent desserts. The flavour of the starters was quite spectacular, maybe a reason of why the main felt a bit like a let down. Menu is a bit short, which help on decision making but i would hope they change it every now and then for future visits.
Price was sort of alright, a little bit on the pricey side (£32 each with desserts and a drink each) but you do get something special.
Was really looking forward to the meal here as menu sounded great with lots of vegan options.
Portions were small and lacked flavour which was disappointing. Service was quite slow - we had to wait around 15 minutes for 2 beers and had to re-ask waiter for these.
Overall, was expensive and not the quality of food I was hoping for.
I went to this restaurant to try the food which to all intents and purposes is authentic and represents the tastes of genuine Indian cuisine, not the "one pot" masalas of the famous "sticky" carpet establishments that popularised Indian food in the UK.
It is not a very nice restaurant to dine in. The layout and room is such that the "cocktail" effect of a high and constant decibel level through diners conversing is quickly reached and makes easy and relaxed conversation impossible.
The service was a bit hit and miss even if well meaning. And our waitress got grumpy when I did not leave a tip, having already been charges a hefty nine and half quid on a seventy two pound bill. Plus the order was not delivered in good time with he deserts got so wrong that we gave up on one of them.
The food is good though. They do actually cook in this restaurant and it is a pleasure to eat such nice flavours.
Finally a bill of over eighty quid for two with two glasses of wine and one desert and two nasal chaos is a bit on the steel side. For another fifty quid you could eat at the Cinnamon Club and have a memorable meal in a lovely dining room.....
So no I would not recommend this place as the overall value is actually quite poor. It is irritatingly young professional "bohemian" . Dinning out is not just about the food but the whole experience.
2nd visit and ther will be a third and many more for sure.
In the vegetarian restaurant dessert this is a true oasis. Remarkanbly good "home cooked" cuisine, sumptious and delicious.
Decor is basic and service is adequate but unremarkable.
Simple, delicious and good value, what else could you wish for on a "normal" night out but I would not use this for special occassions as it just does not have that "je ne sais quoi"
First time that I have been disappointed in GR. 1 Music just too loud for comfortable conversation. Complaint to waitress dismissed... 2 because I have to avoid particulate things, food menu choice was limited, as as a result our choice was far too dry without any sauce. Please consider customers varying requirements.
This was a birthday meal, but we decided that we need another celebration evening, as this just did not turn out as good as we normally get in GR.
Disappointing experience! The service was so poor that it over shadowed the decent food quality. We were a group of 4 and had to ask for water 4 times on the table.
Price was overly high for everything, mango lassi was £4.50 in a small glass and Thepla (2 in numbers) (Gujarati bread) was £5.00. REALLY??? You can get 6 for under a pound.
Anyways, we gave feedback about poor service to Chiara, who gave us a lecture about 100 things and didn't even really acknowledged the feedback and tried to make our experience better.
My Verdict: Overly priced fancy place with no real attention to customers and service. DON'T GO!
as ever, lovely gugerati food. Bustling and full, good atmosphere and as small, not too noisy.. Service not as good as usual. Beers did not appear until we. asked. again as food. arrived. An order mistake, but we were not. charged for that, and the dish was. left for us to eat.
We will. return, of. course.
One of our favourite places for. interesting food.
The food at Gujerati Rasoi is really excellent, flavoursome, out of the ordinary vegetarian food. The wait staff were, generally,helpful, informative and gave good advice. We dined at 6:15 and the restaurant was almost empty when we arrived but the food was slow coming out. Also, I am not convinced that the chipboard interiors are great, pop-up ridiculousness. It wasn't cheap and for the money I think they could fork out a little to give it a lick of paint. Having said that, I will definitely be going back, it's about the food.
