Rasoi is the next generation in the Aslam family’s vision to delight the Bay Area with their unique, award-winning Northern Indian and Pakistani cuisine. Sprung from master chef Mohammed Aslam’s widely celebrated flagship restaurant Aslam’s Rasoi in San Francisco’s Mission District, this creative collaboration by Mr. Aslam’s sons integrates the much beloved family-friendly Rasoi (Kitchen) concept into a contemporary restaurant and chill lounge setting on the peninsula. Executive Chef Asif Aslam performs magic in the kitchen by putting his own signature on a well-curated staple of mouth-watering family recipes. Drawing from his diverse experiences at his dad’s restaurant and as personal chef for a host of distinguished Bay Area personalities, one of the region’s most talented young restaurateurs enjoys nothing more than to enhance his culinary genes with the kinds of subtle accents known to elicit spontaneous “oohs.”

The food here is AMAZING! With that said, the service is all over the place. The servers themselves are very friendly, but there's definitely a lack of organization when it comes to who takes care of what. In any case, definitely a must eat overall.

Decent food, but incredibly slow service. We ordered within 5 minutes of sitting down but had to wait 50 minutes for our order. After we finished we had another 30 minute wait for the check, and then had two dropped off at our table. I appreciate that staffing is hard right now, but it made our dinner less enjoyable. The staff was all polite and not rude which was appreciated.

I'll start out with the good. The food. Unfortunately it was completely negated by all the staff here that have no idea how to work in a restaurant, including management. If I could leave a negative star review, I would.
We were seated, and ignored for 20 minutes until I flagged down a server. Ordered drinks, and appetizer. (took at least 20 more minutes). They were ok. I ordered a beer after that, took forever because they had to change the keg. Understandable. Then we ordered our main course, which after 40 minutes of waiting, asked what was up. After asking, food came out in less than 5 minutes. (Obviously the order didn't make it to the chef's). Then the bill came. We paid it. Then called our Uber. 4 minutes before the arrival of our Uber, a different server appeared, and said they had charged us for the wrong table, and needed to recharge us because it was more. I refused, stating that such a transaction would cause us to miss our Uber. My partner then got up, and went to take care of that bill, and I walked out. You can guess it! We missed our Uber. At that point they should have just happily comped us the difference in the bill. ($7).So horrible. Talk about ruining a friday night! I will never set foot in This place again!

We got a new mushroom appetizer and it was incredible. The Chicken Tikka, Chicken Korma, chicken Tikka Masala, Birra Chicken, and naan. We’re all fabulous. We got to pick our spice level. Which for our wimpy family was ideal. The owner is SO nice and always has something fun to try. We feel this is the bay areas best UK style curry house. My husband is from the UK so it’s his home away from home.

My husband and I not very familiar with Indian food, but, wanted something different. It was awesome! So beautiful inside, wonderful, warm service! I had looked at photos and menu description and made the following choices. Assorted appetizer, mixed green, salad, garlic naan, chicken tikki Marsala, tandoori prawns and side of rice. They have a great playlist of background music at the end of the night we asked to hear an Indian song they played a romantic one and we had a slow dance. Very special evening. Can’t wait to go back

Food was very good as usual, especially vegetable dishes with dal being both our favorite. Butter chicken was nice, too, I just wish it was cut into smaller pieces and had more sauce. Service was on point except for how long it took to get naan, I got an impression waiter forgot to pass our order to the kitchen.

I'd definitely be back and keep introducing my friends to Rasoi. It's a gem!

Food was delish as always, not cold when it got to our table. Wasn't happy about their Chai, it was more milk than Chai. Seated outside so can't complain about the Ambiance, it is what it is. Had 5 kids with us, they loved the Naan and Tandori chicken and that is all they ate. However, the servers weren't very attentive. My favorite spot but I am starting to notice it a lot more. Through out the dinner, they only see you once till the end of dinner and we needed more napkins and water through out. But overall, this is a good spot.

Our first visit, and we hope to become now "regulars"! The service was quick but more important, it was thoughtful, attentive, interested in us. The food (lamb and seafood dishes and naan) was terrific, well conceived and prepared . Thank you for a great evening.

I’d been going to this restaurant for few years and their tandoori never failed me! The mixed tandoori grills came with two pieces of chicken, large prawns, white fish and lamb, perfect for couples to share! Since I don’t eat lamb, they’re always let me change to other meat or seafood. The best tandoori chicken I had tasted, it’s super juicy, tender, tasty! Love their different naans, curries are not their best, but everything else were great! It’s modern decor makes this restaurant better than the typical Indian restaurants. Very nice services, food usually took quite a while, I guess that’s because the tandoori chicken was made to ordered and it’s worth the wait!

Food was fair. Beware most dishes are quite spicy. We didn't have a problem with that. The problem was the service. There didn't seem to be enough servers. It took forever to get our drinks. Cocktails are ok, was expecting better. The lamb Rogan Josh was pretty decent. So was the rice with shrimp. Don't order fish dishes. Meh. My son ordered a chai. It was so lacking flavor. Considering how spicy the food is we were hoping for a nice chai. Bummer. Not going back.

Horrible food. Service was crappy. They don't understand well and placed an additional order of appetizers for us. Food was bland and boring. The Naan was sorta raw and doughy. The worst was they apply an automatic 20% to tabs and no where is that listed. Definitely won't go back due to lack of service, horrible food and crappy policies.

Awful! I tried this place because I didn’t want to drive into SF & it had decent ratings on OpenTable.

We arrived a couple minutes late for our 7pm reservation. We were not seated until 7:10. It took about 30 minutes to place our order. Our cocktails took about 15 minutes to arrive.

Finally, around 8pm, a full hour after we arrived, we were served our appetizers, which were awful: the fried onions were cold and overcooked, the dumplings were devoid of filling, just fried dough basically.

The food came soon thereafter. I thought the food was OK, but certainly not worth waiting over an hour for.

I would have given this place a negative 5 for service, if that was possible. Terrible experience, never going back.

Surprisingly large portions of delicious food. Tandoori fish is outstanding. Great dals. I sometimes have stomach upset after Indian food due to the ghee or oil used. Never at Rasoi. I've eaten here 4 times (am an out of towner).

Food here is amazing! The chicken in the biryani is so tender and flavorful, the tandoori chicken falls off the bone. Their daal is easily the best I've had. I do wish the service was a little better. I only saw the server twice: once to take the order and once for the bill. It also takes them a second to get to you once you sit down so normally I ordering drinks, appetizers, and dinner all at the same time rather than being able to order a drink and look at the menu. The wait for food is never too long though!
