- Quite a treatThe4ofusDined on 27/10/2014We met up with friends for a meal and it was a first visit for us all. The design and decor of the place is very impressive and someone has gone out of their way to think of everything. The staff were welcoming and the service throughout the evening very good. All of us ordered different starters and mains and were very impressed with what we got, from the hot plates to the tasty food, cooked beautifully and not at all greasy. The dessert menu was very different to what you usually get in Indian restaurants and the presentation was a very high standard. We all enjoyed it very much and will definitely return- can't wait to try the lunchtime menu soon too.Special Features:

- Terrific eveningblr877Dined on 25/10/2014We were a group celebrating my 75th birthday with an age range of 3 - 75. We ll nade to feel welcome by the staff and the food was of the usual excellent quality. Service was exemplary and we look forward to our next visit. Thank you Rasoi.Special Features:
- CurryChrisDined on 20/10/2014Awesome as always! Every time we go to the Rasoi we have excellent service and the food is always amazing! Rasoi is simply the best!
- Kevin smithhalcyonDined on 19/10/2014The presentation of the food was excellent as is the decor of the restaraunt. Whilst the starters were excellent, the pillau rices tasty, the main course sauces were disappointing. The tikka masala sauce tasted and resembled like tomatoe soup. When it came to settling the bill, the waiter had included a 2 course meal on top of the meals we had ordered. This increased the bill by 25%. When I had the embarrassment of having to question this he looked at the receipt for a while then said he didn't know how it got there. He took it off the bill but had I not calculated in my head roughly the cost I would have been grossly overcharged!Special Features:
- First Evening MealTeddingtonsDined on 18/10/2014We took friends who recently got married here for the first time, as previously we had gone only for the groupon afternoon meal deal. I booked online with Open table, and our only request was to have a boothe seating, to which we got. Nice touch. The meal itself was very nice, but my wifes scallops were , to say the least, a tad on the miniscule side. 3 very small scallops with a cherry tomato on top. Could do a lot better.Everyone elses starters were very nice. Main courses too got an all round thumbs up, I thought the Nans could have been a bit bigger with more fillings (ie Keema Nan did not have much meat). This, as said, was our first visit for evening meal, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I tad pricey, but over all nice experienceSpecial Features:
- Really good placemostestDined on 4/10/2014Great decor, lots of space between the tables so we didn't feel crowded. The food was excellent and the service was good. One minor complaint is that although I booked well in advance for 8pm, we still had to wait more than 20 minutes for our table. This would not have been so bad if there had been table service to order a drink while waiting, but I had to go to the bar, leaving my girlfriend sitting on her own and the bar service was very slow! Despite the poor start we ended up really enjoying the place. Will certainly go back again.Special Features:
- ExceptionalFredmunsterDined on 4/10/2014Having visited most Asian restaurants in and around the Swansea area I can only say the Rasoi blew my mind, what an outstanding restaurant, perfect setting for a perfect meal.Special Features:
- lovely placel8nrDined on 26/9/2014Had a lovely meal, really good food excellent service and wasn't too full after the meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- goodRyeRye8151Dined on 26/9/2014Ordered dhansak but got a Tikka Masala. Took a while to get the main meal so didn't bother telling the waiter so eat it anyway. It was really nice. I've been hear before and I really like it there. Think this was a one off off nightSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Second meal in three weeks :)OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 20/9/2014Attended two birthday meals in three weeks, absolutely stunning food and surroundings, only criticism is that drinks take a long time to get to you, you will have ordered and finished your starters before drinks get to the table despite staff being attentive. Tip - Order two drinks when you place your order, saves you having to wait ages for further drinks, eating hot curry you need refreshments :)Special Features:
- Absolutely brilliant as usual!CurryChrisDined on 10/9/2014The Rasoi, Pontlliw is the best Indian restaurant that I have ever been to! It cannot be bettered for food, ambience, service and value!!!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in fine dining!!!!!!!!Special Features:
- FabulousOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/9/2014We went to Rasoi for our Anniversary and it was excellent, very romantic and the food was delicious. Will definitely be going back soon to celebrate my birthday.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- jagsDined on 24/8/2014First time to dine there and found the food excellent only minor fault was we had to ask twice for our drinks order, staff extremely efficient otherwise. Would recommend to friends,family and work colleagues. Will be returning on a regular basisSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice meal, but overpricedmandy1Dined on 24/8/2014Portions have been reduced and prices are high so not as value for money as was when first opened. Drinks very expensive. Service ok, nothing special.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Lovely foodOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 21/8/2014Rasoi was recommended to me and I was not dissapointed. Menu has a few different options as well as the normal indian meals. Cant wait to go back again to try something different. Myself and partner both went for fish/seafood - absolutely moorish!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- What a great find!!! excellent !!!nickyswansea1Dined on 17/8/2014Attentive staff, beautiful restaurant, excellent food, will definitely be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- LovelyLittle4MissDined on 16/8/2014Rosoi was lovely, the food was lovely, however, it looks like they have changed their menu, which is a shame, as rasoi for me used to stand out from all of the other 'run of the mill' Indian restaurants, Although, I would still choose Rasoi over other indians within the area.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OutstandingFilmakerDined on 15/8/2014Its not the first time I have been to the Rasoi and have enjoyed the food every time .. how ever this time the Kemanan was a bit greasy this time a little too much oil on the dough I think but still enjoyed my main course .Special Features:
- Pleasantly surprisedLin2Dined on 13/8/2014The food was amazing if not a little small of a serving but the quality made up for quantity. The service I found was second to none very friendly staff. Only downside was the state of the children's play area, as the restaurant is child friendly I would expect them to at least cut the grass!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- As good as everPontlliwDined on 12/8/2014Once again another fantastic meal for my wife's birthday. Excellent evening.Special Features:
- CurryChrisCurryChrisDined on 8/8/2014An awesome dining experience. The food at the Rasoi is always outstanding as is the service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone enjoying Indian cuisine, or just awesome food! We always receive a warm welcome and wherever we sit, even when the restaurant is very busy, the service is outstanding and the ambience just perfect! The restaurant is beautifully decorated and it is always a wonderul dining experience when we visit the Rasoi!Special Features:
- Ok. Nothing specal.dgpkpDined on 8/8/2014food was ok. portions were very small. chips about 10 thick chips not value for money. service was good, but they charged you £ 1 for mint sauce which isn't on the menu. must have been to about 100 differnert Indians and never paid before ???Special Features:
- Simply the bestblr877Dined on 4/8/2014This is a restaurant which we have used on a number of occasions for lunch and evening meals with family and friends. On each occasion the food, the service and yhe overall welcome has been second to none. Our groups have included a wide age range of diners (from 3 to 78 years of age) and everybody has been impressed by the standard of this authentic modern Indian restaurant. The food is presented in a manner that would not be out of place in any top restaurant and is superbly cooked. The staff are knowledgeable about the dishes that they are serving and capable of sharing that knowledge to the diners. Well done, Rasoi. Keep up your good work.Special Features:
- LeolionheartDined on 26/7/2014Good quality food though the menu was somewhat limited. Staff coped well in a busy restaurant. booking was on time and table prepared. Would certainly recommend it and would visit again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious food!BeachfireDined on 24/7/2014Food here is always to a high standard. Unlike the typical Indian restaurant, the tables are well spaced out and the group dining tables are big enough that you don't feel squashed. Decor is tasteful and modern. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The only criticism is that the gap between starter and main took longer than usual. However, overall this is a lovely restaurant and I love coming here. Best Indian restaurant I've been to so far.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing!YazDanDined on 12/7/2014Second time eating here and it was amazing! Food very tasty & quick service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SmoothCraigHDined on 11/7/2014Received a very very good meal ar Rasoi, great service from the staff. The choice of food on the menu is fantastic and caters to all. I love the way they do not have to ask who ordered what hwen the food arrives as they allready know. All the waiters have white gloves on whilst serving the food, very good image.Special Features:
- Treat for my husbandgraciegwynDined on 8/7/2014I bought a Groupon voucher for this restaurant for my husband for his birthday as he loves Indian food. We were delighted with it. The restaurant was fairly quiet ( it was a midday lunchtime) but we couldn't fault anything. The waiter was friendly and very helpful. The food was amazing..certainly not the usual run of the mill Indian food.The chicken tikka was the best we have tasted since we have returned from working abroad for 18 months. We definitely plan to return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- JT55Dined on 21/6/2014As ever, A stunning setting, Good Service and excellent food. Thanks againSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Value, views and serviceFoodempathDined on 20/6/2014Having read good reviews of Rasoi, we decided to venture out there on a special occasion in our family. We found the food to be very tasty (a whole league above the usual Indian fare in Swansea in both taste and presentation), the service very friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. Part of our family is Asian, so we can be quite unimpressed when eating Indian food outside the home, but we had no complaints whatsoever here (the biryani was particularly excellent). The service is worth mentioning too because British Asians, surprisingly, often don't get very good service in Indian restaurants, but we felt that the staff at Rasoi looked after us just as well as they looked after other diners. We will definitely return.Special Features:
- City quality in countryside !LuliDined on 15/6/2014Excellent. Try it. The menu is fab ! It felt like a real Indian restaurant experience rather than the hurried slop that is usually served in this country.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great EatingRadioTircoedDined on 14/6/2014We have been here since day one. Consistently good. Highly recommendedSpecial Features:
- Some of the best food I've tastedmoments2rememberDined on 12/6/2014Having experienced some depressingly 'plastic' eateries in Swansea I was delight to discover Rasoi. This is not a 'curry house' but fine food in an Indian style, well presented and cooked to perfection. It is comparable to The Cinnamon Club in Westminster.Special Features:
- CurryChrisCurryChrisDined on 11/6/2014We had a wonderful lunch with some very good friends and it was awesome! The food, the service and the value were outstanding! The ambience was awesome too! This is the first time that I have been for lunch as we usually have dinner at the Rasoi! I thought the lunch menu was very unique and wonderful value for money. I would recommend the Rasoi as simply the best curry house in Wales, if not in the entire UK!Special Features:
- Never againJayCDined on 6/6/2014Must be the worst Indian over rated rubbish I ever tasted! Waste off money! Waste of time traveling from South Wales!
- We'll be back!MediDined on 31/5/2014Lovely setting, plenty of parking. Large well appointed restaurant with good 'vibe' Food was very good, offering something different to the run of the mill indian restaurants in the area. Especially pleased to have several fish dishes to choose fromSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Catch-up curryBwydBrafDined on 25/5/2014My friend and I don't often get a chance to meet up, but when we do, we prefer to do so over a curry, and we've never had better than at the Rasoi - lovely choice of meals, including some dishes not found in many Indian restaurants. We'll definitely be heading there again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
