Vineet Bhatia, the first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star (for Zaika in Kensington), has opened this eponymous restaurant on the site of his long-established and revered Rasoi restaurant.
Harden's survey result
“Amid increasing competition, still London’s top fine-dining Indian!” – so say most reports on Vineet Bhatia’s “superbly re-invented cuisine” at this “impeccably run” Chelsea townhouse, which is “unique amongst upmarket Indians in aiming to be quiet and intimate rather than buzzy and fashionable”. Formery Rasoi, it relaunched one year ago, and fans are “extremely happy that this wonderful place is just as refined as before, but with a slightly different focus (perhaps less led by luxury ingredients)”. Even supporters give “a word of warning however – don’t even think about the prices” – and there is the odd critic who says “are they kidding? Just go to Gymkhana, Trishna or Jamavar for £50 less!”
For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
