I visited the restaurant with my wife and three friends. The decor is outdated but the food was really good. My wife and I ate vegetarian meals which were very good. There is a large variety of vegetarian options. Our friends had various chicken dishes which they enjoyed.

First of all, the food they serve here looks Indian but tastes absolutely Mediocre. Gravies were runny, and Biryani tasted like plain rice. Nans were the only thing that were prepared nicely. (But as we told our parents) In a place where you cannot see too many Indians getting Indian food is like finding God so just call yourself lucky... More

Good food quite tasty and offers a variety. But you must be prepared for a long wait. They do takeaways as well. convenient location.

The food was ok. We ordered chicken tikka as starter it was not so good as it was smelly. And the quantity was very much less. But fortunately the gravy chicken tikka was nice which was a take away. well after all indian food we got thats a plus sign. Staffs are nice and co-operative.

We liked it very much ... although food takes long to come . But donot get frustrated about it , its same everywhere else in South Africa . Better get takeaway and have it at your hotel if you are tired after a busy day .

Don't expect any food before 1 hour of your order. The staff is unfriendly... The music is horrible,, but the food is average..

Was feeling for Indian food and came across only Raasoie being the only indian restaurant in Knysna! Was very hesitant to go there as reviews from tripadvisor was a mix. Didn't think much of the decor so decided to do takeout. Ordered fish curry, tikka chicken and mutton vidaloo and was very satisfied with my food. It was Delicious!

serves simple indian food. Good for travellers on a vegetarian diet. Not very spicy so suits all palettes.

basic food . No hygiene. the service was not the standard. Mainly tour operators book this restaurant for their guests to give the cheap and cheerful Indian food. We were not impressed
