Rasai is an Indian word that means Entrance, Opening & Passage! Rasai Indian Restaurant is an opening for a new Seattle Indian experience – a progressive, modern, fresh, fun, and delicious take on all the regions of Indian flavors, dishes, and traditions. Our menu and food bring to Seattle the diversity of India and Indian cuisine using a fresh, progressive & modern take that is meant to delight, to make happy, and to be warm and inviting, not pretentious and stilted. To make this all happen, Executive Chef, Gaurav Raj is hitting the mark by giving Indian food a new identity and meaning in the world of Haute cuisine. The space itself is cozy and intimate with burnt tempered wood and a blackened steel finish. The outside wooden patio is fully covered and heated.

    Went in for Mother's Day brunch. Hardly anything for Veg options. Way too slow service (it took 30+ min just to get a basic appetizer). Found absolutely nothing special for the price they quote. I would have rather gone to other nearby cafe like Lassi and Spice and gotten value for my money.

    We went for dinner with friends. Limited food options and average taste. They asked us to rush because they said their guests are waiting. Realize the service fee / tip was included and by mistake paid double tip. Overpriced for the meal you get. Not going again

    Creative vision; mediocre execution. The ambience is nice - without looking too hard, but the glasses were coated in a thick layer of cotton fluff and dust, the lavatory feels like one you might find in an especially nice gas station. Dinner had the same vibe - the menu was creative, but the reality somehow turned out a little flat. Each dish was very one note instead of the depth of flavor that we were anticipating from such cool, innovative descriptions. The highlight of the dinner was pineapple chutney - which was admittedly totally perfect.

    Went here to celebrate a new job. Really good food and drinks. More upscale than a regular dinner. Family friendly, saw several tables with kids. The portions are really good too. You could share plates or get individual plates. We got two appetizers and two main dish and one dessert to split. We ate everything and now feel sick from over eating.

    Good experience overall Some of the food items were great and some were so-so Anjeer kofta was absolutely delicious The bread basket was inconsistent. - needs a lighter option and laccha parantha was hard and not hot The tandoori prawns were just warm and dry — also 4 pieces hardly and appetizer portion . The dessert was nice too

    The food was very creative and the flavors were surprising (in a delicious way). Four of us shared dishes and we enjoyed every dish including the Kofta, paneer and cactus, ghee roasted cauliflower, tandoori salmon with coconut/lime sauce, tandoori chicken kabob, and the jackfruit bao. It was quite loud in the small dining area and we had some difficulty chatting due to the noise level.

    The food here is very good. Highly recommend the Ghee Roasted Cauliflower, Jackfruit Bao, Mirapa Paneer Kabob and Lamb Osso Bucco. Presentation and cooking method is excellent. Word of caution...not for the faint of heart. This place is expensive. The Stuffed Poblano looked promising but wasn't my favorite. I have never paid $24 dollars for a vegetarian/stuffed pepper but was willing to try. The effort is there and the execution does not disappoint but this place is over priced. They also have a menu of exotic cocktails. We tried several but found them to be very small, lacking in punch for the $15 price. 7 people $784 before tip.

    We really enjoyed our first dining experience at Rasai! We were a party of 5, and a small baby. After mentioning a special request to be seated in a corner so the baby is warm and hopefully doesn’t cause too much disturbance, we were promptly seated in a great spot. They were also very accommodative of our baby getting a bit restless for a while. We loved our drinks - specially the aam punch. Coming to food - it was very flavorful and different compared to other regular Indian restaurants. It wasn’t fusion for the sake of it, but a unique blend of very complementary ingredients. Our favorites were jackfruit bao, mirapa paneer, lamb biryani and the bread sampler. The ambience was lovely and cozy, and the staff were very helpful. I read reviews about the restaurant being quite pricey, but the experience and uniqueness also adds value!

    I wish the dishes tasted as good as they looked. The Pheasant Lababdar I ordered was overcooked (which thankfully they cancelled from my bill), and the Biryani was all-right. I do not think I would visit again. Shoutout to our server though, she was attentive, informative and very helpful.

    The food was great. Nice combination of flavors. I had the Grilled Cauliflower, Tandoori Prawns, and Lamb chops. Cauliflower and chops were superb. The prawns were ok but didn't have the flower of the other 2 dishes. The restaurant was very cool and the seats were cold. I would recommend cushions for the chairs for comfort and warmth. I will definitely go again

    Nice spot, small but very cute. Went for Valentine’s Day and had a reservation, but still had to wait 30+ minutes. Good food, had only one option of fixed price menu which was good but very small portions. It also took a while but that may have been that they were busy (2.5 hour experience, when it would’ve been nice to be there for maybe 1.5 hours).
