I liked the restaurant pretty much in all it's aspects, the service was the only weak point. Our server was really slow and sometimes if you ask something to the server, he will execute your demand really slowly, or he will just not execute it...

The food was mild enough, but the fusion lacked creativity.
House drinks were not amazing. Staff was nice. Ambiance nice. We expected better tasting food.
The prices were not appealing for small plates.
The place is not for us. The restaurant is for people that do not know Indian cuisine.

Very much beautifull and unique decor. Very nice ambiance. Very efficient and gentil service. So delicious and creative meals. Fresh and high quality ingrédients. A bit to much spicy for the three of us but great taste and texture. We only drank tab water, our glass were often refilled. We wish to try a dessert but we were already to much ate...
Excellent food and cocktails!
The food was excellent, fresh, tasty and fun! The flavours were wonderful as was the presentation!
The cocktails are surely not to be missed. The service was great overall although it kind of dwindled once the restaurant got busier but the food was well worth the trip and slight delays!
Where do I begin.....
Our group had an excellent dinner at Rasoi. We started out with cocktails which were very well executed and certainly packed with flavour (try the "hot lips", it's delicious). We then proceeded to order many small plates (mezze type). The waiter was very helpful with all of his suggestions. The pizza with figs was delicious as an appetizer. The bbq chicken was packed with flavour and arrived steaming at the table, the lamb chops were moist and perfectly cooked. Even the deserts were amazing, especially the rhum ice cream. The total bill was lower than expected. I will definitely go back. I highly recommend this restaurant. Oh by the way, the music (playlist) was great: 70's and 80's hits.
Fabulous deco, great food and attentive service!:)
Went with a friend on a Ladies' Night (Wednesday): free meal with purchase of selected wine bottle! Delicious Indian food, special attentions (it was both our birthdays), very attentive service and beautiful surrounding (colours, deco, lights, music). Loved it!
Waiting for a waiter to serve us or give us a menu was far too long!
Food was mediocre compared to other fine Indian Restaurants in MONTREAL.
Wine was low-grade and they only poured us half-glasses which is not proper at all. Stingy owners(?).
The loud music is horrible. We thought this was a normal restaurant, it is not. It appears and sounds more like a low-class disco or a low grade bar where people come to drink and pick up ugly women!!!
The owners are probably not Indian at all. They seem to us to be inexperienced "locals". Very bad situation.
The sound system is old and not fit for any public place.
The bad imitation-jazz is so strong-loud that we could not even have a decent conversation during our meal. Absolutely terrible and useless.
An absolute gem
I went with a friend. We shared 4 choices from the menu. The onion bajji was the best I ever had (by a long shot). The fig and goat cheese naan pizza was also a 10 out of 10. The food was fresh, hot, well and cleverly presented, and we enjoyed the meal and service immensely. I'm going back soon!!!
A great smell upon entering, the food tastes very good, and you will be able to still smell your clothes the day after (as with most Indian restaurants after all). Definitely a nice choice if you want to find Indian dishes with a fusion twist. I thought all appetizers we tried were great. The entrees are a bit more traditional, still quite tasty.

Good dishes. I dur have better service there in the past, typically waiters would come and introduce themselves when they first see you instead of just placing glasses giving you the menu and fleeing. It got better once we spoke to the waiter.

I've been to Rasoï three times and I have to say that I'm never disappointed when I go there.
The food is cooked to perfection! The cocktails are amazing! The service is great! The ambiance is very nice. Beautifully decorated restaurant. It's a good place to take a date or go out with your significant other or a group of friends. The menu is varied and the prices are reasonable . They have vegetarian options and they have a good selection of wines.
I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience really great food!
This was my second time dining at Rasoï and I was definitely not disappointed. The ambiance is great for a night out with friends -- the restaurant is hip, trendy and not too noisy. Service was very friendly and prompt, overall excellent. And the food, oh the food! Those naan pizzas alone, particularly the fig and paneer one, are well worth the trip. I am drooling just thinking about it! We stayed for hours and really enjoyed our night. Thank you Rasoï!
It is not what to expect when you plan to have an Indian cuisine :) the food is great. The staff are nice. And the ambiance is unique. Everything is lovely untill they told me they were out of Gulab Jamun ha ha used all my adult strength to hold my tears. That is one dessert a person longs for.
Gem in le Sud-Ouest
I've been eyeing this place for a while during my drives to sumac and Satay Bros... I finally had the opportunity to go eat there last Thursday. As an Indian food lover I can say with confidence that this was an all around exceptional experience.
My initial worry is that the decor was too fancy and that the food would not be up to par (VS my usual parc-ex hole's in the wall) however I couldn't be more wrong. The food was exquisite and authentic and the service was contrarily to other reviews, very efficient and fast.
I would suggest taking the Tandoori Chicken that comes sizzling on its hot plate as well as the butter chicken. The lamb was also to die for!
Thanks for hosting us, it was wonderful!
Slow drinks good food
Being seated downstairs set the stage for a 'lower' quality experience than my previous visit. It was a busy night, with the upstairs and downstairs being close to capacity at Rasoï. This made the service slow and our biggest issue of the night. The wine took over 20 minutes to arrive, and the beers we ordered at the same time as the wine took 5 more minutes... The starters and food arrived in a more timely manner. The starters were delicious and beautiful. Both the bhaji and tandoori tikka were highlights of the meal, with the sauces elegant tastes and the textures of the bhaji dish. The mains arrived shortly enough after the starters, and were all hot and delicious. The good standouts were the butter chicken, the vindaloo goat and chili chicken. The vegetable side orders were ok and were good compliments but nothing special. The rice orders are small just like the average dishes. (If sharing with more than one other person, the portions will be tiny for all) the naan bread was delicious and butter soaked, it disappeared quickly as people were still hungry. Waiter also forgot a dish and brought it when we almost done.
-small portions (mains/rice)
-dont get seated downstairs if possible
Good restaurant but....
Maybe my expectations were too high... And although I was not disappointed by the place... I wasn't blown away either.
The menu is extremely attractive to the point that's difficult to choose what to order, however the food lack the WOW factor. Our waiter was extremely attentive but one part of our order arrived after we had finished the rest of the food when you don't want it anymore...
However, the decor and the ambiance of the place is wonderful and I think their group menu (10 or over) is an excellent alternative for bigger groups.
great food, beautiful decor
I went to Rasoi for my birthday supper on a recommendation from my daughter. Never having eaten Indian food before, my husband and I were a little apprehensive. Well after tasting our first appetizers, we were in awe and with every other dish that followed. We especially loved the fig pizza, spring rolls, masala cod and butter chicken to name a few. I went back aftet a couple of weeks for a girls' night...needless to say my girlfriends absolutely raved about the food.
Also the service is outstanding and super friendly. Even though we were the last table left at closing time, the staff never made us feel like we had to leave. This is definitely a huge plus!
The decor is catching upon entering, then the lovely menu, and all seems so good you want to sample everything!
Once the food arrives, you dig in and the tastes are like a colourful explosion in your mouth! Loved every bite and would go back in a flash!
Prices are very decent, a bonus!
The food is so good at Rasoi, it's the second time we went and this time, for some reason, service was really really slow. We had a reservation at 7:30pm and left at 10pm, I didn't like that. The first time we went, service was really good and I had nothing to say but this time I was a little disapointed with that. I have nothing to say about the food, it's just amazing.
