The fantastic singer crooning sad love songs on broken hearts and forgotten lovers is apt – Rasoi, once our preferred destination for an excellent Indian meal in Deira, is now but a shadow of its former self. The decor and ambience is rustic chic done well, the menu extensive, and staff nothing short of friendly and efficient, but the food is...well, boring. Tikkas like the malai murgh see stringy chicken leave an unpleasant aftertaste and soups are pumped with colouring but little flavour. Rasoi’s saving grace has to be their mutton biryani. In fact, we’d recommend skipping everything else in favour of this fragrant, flavourful dish where the meat is delicously tender and rice cooked just right.

Food was good except for Panner related items, wherein the paneer was not properly cooked. All other items were good.
The ambience is good and has a friendly atmosphere.

Decor was very nice, food was good, the ambiance good and it was a good value. The outstanding part of our visit to this restaurant was the service. We had personal attention with recommendations for food to order. There are very few restaurants where we have had this level of service.

What would you do if you want to go out for a dinner but wanna feel like you are home...???
What would you do if you want to eat else where but want somebody serve you food like your family member does....???
What if you wanna go to a restaurant but want a sitting arrangement which does not let you feel as if you're in restaurant...??
What if you wanna listen to music while eating but don't want it too loud & noisy....??
Many Many Many of such questions... have only 1 answer.... & it is Rasoi... Very Homely atmosphere... a Romantic Ambiance with people like Aleem Ahmed & Prajul around .. with their warm hospitality you'll feel you are completely pampered.......

My Seven Stars to Rasoi Restaurant & their Staff.........!!! Bravo! Keep it up...!!!!!

I would like 2 add my true comment tht i really liked the ambience & the decor of the Rasoi restra..food is delicious and reasonable rates too compare to other restaurants..thr should be more lighting at the entrance..Hotel should be easily visible from the distance... staff is very humble and lastly Music is awesome.i can say "1 man show"..all the best

I stayed in Hotel Coral Diea for two days ( last Thursday and Friday) on the reference of one of my business friends. I had a business dinner on Thursday in RASOI. Prompted by the great taste of food and absolutely friendly service, the entire team felt that our lunch meet on Friday also should be in RASOI only.

RASOI has great food and great people.
