It is right in the middle of Auckland's bohemian K Road, so the location is very convenient. Also, all the items at this place are vegetarian, so it is a great place for vegetarians (or people who just crave veggie food). The food is vey cheap here. Usually you can have a meal for under NZ$10, sometimes even $7-8. The... More

I have been going for ten years to that place to get Massala Dosa or vegetarian curries. It's really tasty and cheap.

Have been eating at Rasoi for many years. Their selection of vegetarian dishes are always a joy to eat. The dosa's are great too. Decor is a bit lacking but you go for the food!

I first visted Rasoi in 1997 and try to pop in every time I get back to Auckland. The food served is generally from a selection of prepared curries served thali-style with various other dishes (including dosas) available on order. The food is always tasty and everything is vegetarian (ask which dishes contain Ghee if you are vegan). They also... More

The thali platters here are nice: choice of two curries plus rice, bread, pickle, soup, yogurt. The food is tasty though the choices are rather limited: we had four curry options, but two were potato based. Everything is nicely spiced and the samosas are good as well. You order at the counter and can sit at tables to eat: nothing... More

Seriously, the owners of this restaurant should look into another profession because clearly serving food isn't their forte... We went in for an early dinner (it was about 6.30pm on a Friday). We were the only ones in the place so the owner behind the counter (and his wife in the kitchen) were not exactly swamped. I ordered Masala Dosa... More

Anyone can have high standards, regardless of the where they live. What I like about Rasoi is there's no pretence. They serve simple, reliably good Indian vegetarian food. Their Masala Dosa is excellent.

Then again I have pretty high standards coming from Melbourne to here. The dour-faced people at the counter were more than rude, it was plain to see that they hated their job or their lives, whichever one that was, the negativity rubbed off quite tangibly. The food itself was incredibly bland and yet was priced at a premium, so really... More

Very generous thalis - much more than I could eat in one sitting. Really good, solid vegetarian staples - various thali options plus dosas, Indian sweets, really great shrikhand. Would be even better if they stopped using the ubiquitous onion and garlic in Indian dishes. Staff are friendly and helpful and prices very reasonable. Decor is totally utilitarian - zero... More
