Take a leisurely stroll through the impressive ancient gates at the entrance of the restaurant which will bring to you the breathtaking charm of India , brought to life in a miniature version.
Rasoi radiates an ambience of elegance and peace, exhibiting a magnificent collection of Indian statues and culture-rich decorative items. Outfitted with majestic wooden arches and exquisite wall carvings, they reflect the grandeur of the past. Extenuating the majestic appeal of the restaurant is the delicate fabric laid artistically at some corners of the restaurant. Candle lights line the stairways as you, my highness, tread up to the second level, evocative of the graceful and romantic Indian royal past. Besides the iron chairs which are way too heavy to be pulled out graciously for the lady, an experience of lavish comfort and pampering awaits you as you immerse yourself in the warm and intimate atmosphere.
The Kastoori Kabab is a dish of succulent chicken tikka marinated and roasted in the tandoor, topped off with mint sauce. Painstakingly marinated for more than 12 hours and then religiously cooked in the traditional clay oven, it is no wonder that the Kastoori Kabab is one of the most popular dishes on the menu.
However, what steals the limelight, is the Murgh Pastoom - butter chicken cooked in creamy tomato gravy. Served in a traditional brass pot, the gravy is subtlely sweet but definitely luscious. Rasoi also recommends Rasoi special Dal, a vegetarian Hindi dish cooked by using yellow lentils made up of 5 different lentil types, and then sprinkled with chopped ginger, garlic and potatoes to bring it up a notch.
A unique strong herb flavour, one might need some time getting used to and acquiring the taste. Complement the above dishes with a serving of Saffron Rice - Basmati rice flavoured with saffron strands. The Naan Basket serves plain, butter, garlic and kashmiri flavoured naan. Oval- shaped, crisp, and slightly charred at the sides, a naan is actually dough, cooked on the inside wall of the tandoor. The kashmiri naan is particularly interesting because of the dried cherries and nuts sprinkled all over the dough, hence its sweet tingling taste.
