Words may not do justice to the experience of the taste buds and the eyes. Rasoi is hands down the finest of Indian cuisine I have experienced in NZ. The staff are only too happy to help navigate their extensive menu and the effort they put in to making our visit pleasurable is always noted. Every plate put on our table of four was Devine! I can’t wait to return here and experience some more delights from the menu, and even our two children now tell me “that’s my favourite”. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Wow. Really great food. The flavours were amazing! The service and the presentation of the food were both excellent. We wanted to split the bill in a reasonably complicated way and the girl who took our payment was very accomodating and made it seem very simple. Thanks to the team at Rasoi

Fantastic restaurant, lovely decor and authentic Indian cups and serving trays etc, but the best thing of all was the food. The owner/manager genuinely wants diners to broaden their horizons when it comes to Indian food and enjoy a wider range of dishes than India is known for in New Zealand. When my husband asked for the stock standard Butter Chicken, the manager persuaded him to try Murgh Mussslam instead, and my husband loved it. I'd definitely recommend asking the staff for their suggestions before ordering.

Had a lovely meal out at Rasoi. Wait staff were attentive and very helpful. As we were unsure of the dishes as they weren't standard mall type fare, waitress advised on mains and we were very happy with vice we made.

Would happily done here again and will recommend to friends.

We had an outstanding night. We were greeted with a very warm welcome. The service was flawless. Front of house could not have been more helpful and contributed significantly to our overall enjoyment. The menu offered an extensive range and we enjoyed both courses that we had, notably the salmon, the scallops and worthy of special mention - the soft shell crab. The presentation of each dish was superb. A wide choice of wines were offered and we were able to try a small taste of two before we made our choice. Owner / Chef Kamlesh came to our table, expanded on the dishes and checked that we were happy with the food offered - a lovely touch. He clearly takes a lot of pride in his restaurant and justifiably so, we felt. He also gave advice on a whisky to finish off the meal and his recommendation was excellent - loved it so much that I will treat myself to a bottle. ( An Indian, single malt - Amrut Cask Mate ). We must make special mention of two unique features. The first is a dining bib - wonderful, I did not have any spills onto my shirt. The second is the serving of chilled water into copper chalices filled from a beaten copper jug. Somehow this cleanses the water and removes any taint - I want one for home. Overall an excellent dining experience, thank you to all involved.
