Description: As the first fine dining Indian restaurant in Geneva, Rasoi by Vineet offers a delectable journey into the world of contemporary Indian cuisine. Created by renowned chef Vineet Bhatia, Rasoi by Vineet is a sister to Rasoi in London, Bhatia's first and most famous restaurant. Inspired by traditional Indian cookery, Bhatia uses his imagination to blend flavours and textures in a uniquely modern way. To complement the innovative cuisine, we've provided an equally imaginative backdrop. Offering a modern interpretation of traditional Indian style, the decor uses vibrant reds and sleek blacks to create a dramatic interior. A large tandoor oven finished in sleek granite provides the stunning centrepiece to the room.

We came here a few times for lunch and dinner as we were guests of the mandarin oriental hotel, where Rasoi is situated. We loved everything about it, the ambience, the staff and especially the food. We got to try almost everything on the menu and every dish is unique and tastes fantastic. Djime was extremely helpful. (I'm not just recommending him because of his name) ;). If you are planning to eat here then You should ask for an outside table if it's not winter. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. We absolutely loved it.

There are two menus , one traditional Indian food and the other a more gourmet type of Indian cuisine
Both are excellent and it all depends on your mood for the evening
Service is great
The atmosphere is a bit lacking , but it is dependent on the night, the place can be full or empty.
The price level is very high ( even higher than normal geneva ) we paid for two just one glass of wine each , over 150 CHF per head .. for us it's worth it only for special occasions

Lived up to its rating. The food was good and innovative. Spent quite a time for dinner. The choice of food was limited but classy.
Costwise you need to be ready to spend.

My husband and I were quite sad when the Rasoi in London closed. So when we found out there was a Rasoi in Geneva we were thrilled and I quickly made a reservation.

What a mistake.

This restaurant is expensive. I mean EXPENSIVE. And portions are tiny. So tiny that I left hungry (and I weigh less than 100 pounds if that tells you anything).

Food itself is just okay. I will say that presentation is quite nice for most of the dishes, especially the halibut appetizer, but 30 CHF for 3 tiny 1-bite samosas? No presentation justifies that price.

Service is confused and inept at times. Our first server was excellent and took time to explain every dish, asking about our allergies. The next server (who took our order) was less friendly and didn't convey the allergies to the chef. The third server really didn't know anything at all.

So our food came out with nuts, which I don't eat, and which I found out about after a few bites. And this was in 2 separate dishes.

The first waiter tried to make things better by apologizing and taking away the nut-containing dishes. He offered to bring out something else, and ended up bringing us another plate of halibut and some plain rice, which we were not charged for (thus the 2 stars). But honestly we were just so over the service, the prices, the wait time, and the confusion that we just wanted to leave.

Needless to say, I don't recommend Rasoi at all, unless maybe you have an expense account and zero allergies.

Dear ameenadin,

Thanks for your feedback. We regret to read you were disappointed by your recent dining experience at our gourmet Indian Restaurant. Please be informed each of chef Vineet Bahtia’s restaurant has its own identity and portions might vary depending on the restaurant’s concept and location. We are sorry if our Rasoi by Vineet didn’t meet up your expectations. However, we have never been reported before that our guests would leave the restaurant hungry. The portions served have been approved by our experienced Chef and Director of Food and Beverage.

Regarding your comments on our prices, you may rest assured that we align our prices to other similar fine-dining restaurants in Geneva. I understand the service was friendly but not coordinated enough that evening. Please accept our apologies as this is unacceptable and not representative of our standards.

Best regards,

Lars Wagner

Rasoi is a rare jewel right in the heart of Geneva.Had dinner here with friends who fell in love with the variety & the presentation of veg & non veg delicacies. The ambience is great & staff well trained & well mannered.It justifies its Michelin Star rating. The only flip side of dining here is it's exorbitant price.You should select package in case you are there in a group.Veggie choices are better than non veg.
