The restaurant was empty when we arrived at 7 pm. Nevertheless, the waitress was slow and un-attentive. The food was average at best. One member of our party wanted to take some of the food home, so they brought us a box to box it ourselves. There must be better Indian restaurants in the area.
I reserved a quite table at Rasoi kitchen for a special occasion and I had a good experience except that it was Saturday evening and the restaurant was too quiet and though it was obviously a slow evening the service was very slow as well. We had to flag down the waiter for everything and after we finished we waited and waited but were never offered dessert so we just asked for the check and left. overall the food was really good.
Rasoi is a really lovely experience for dinner. The food is good and it isn’t nearly as noisy as similar restaurants.
Very nice Indian restaurant within walking distance from hotels near the White House. Good service and fairly quite
Rasoi was EXCELLENT in every way!
Owner, "Kitty" and staff made us feel most welcome and she was most helpful matching our individual tastes to the menu items and even customized one dish to accommodate my husband's love of lamb and green chilies.
The food was savory and delicious, not overly nor under spiced. The portions were plentiful, which encouraged sharing and that only enhanced our dining experience.
The service was most attentive, yet not intrusive. Kitty and the staff made my birthday celebration very special and delicious!
The restaurant's decor was rich, without being gaudy and overall, our dining experience was delightful! We will most definitely return!
Rasoi turned out to be a wonderful surprise on my birthday - my wife and I had reservations at another popular Indian restaurant in DC and when we arrived, we found out it was restaurant week and they didn’t have anything we could eat on the menu (I’m vegetarian). I quickly searched OpenTable and saw Rasoi, which was only about 8 blocks away. A 2 minute Uber and we pulled up in front of Rasoi, and I could immediately tell I was going to like the place because of the great statuary in the entryway. The place is clean, feels open, and wasn’t super busy on a Thursday night. The owner let us pick whatever table we wanted, and gave us absolutely perfect service - not rushed, but checked back in with us occasionally as we lazily ordered drinks, appetizers, and finally entrees. I never got any sense that she was trying to rush us through so she could turn over our table, which is always my biggest problem with places like Rasika and Bombay Club. The food was great and relatively inexpensive, the drinks were strong and reasonably priced, and the service was excellent. The Palak Chaat is just as good as Rasika, but you get 50% more for almost half the price. The owner recommended the Tandoori Paneer Malai Tikka, and WOW. As a vegetarian I normally go for the classics, but this dish is like Indian soul food. Okay, so this place isn’t as swanky as some of the other upscale Indian places in DC... so what? I just want good food and good drinks and good service, and Rasoi delivered all of that at about half the price I would have paid somewhere else. I left happy and satisfied and will definitely be back!!
The service and food were great and so much food!!
Have been looking for genuine INDIAN food in DC and we found it at Rasoi! Great food and service. Understood what I meant when I said the food needed to be spicy and delivered. Will become our regular INDIAN restaurant in DC
Slowest service ever! Cold food! Will not go here again.
We had a table booked for 8.30pm on a Thursday night and unfortunately we were the only people here . This was off putting as there was no atmosphere. The food was nice though and the owner/manager had a nice chat with us.
