Winners of two awards at the 2012 Scottish Curry Awards – Best Indian Restaurant South West and the much contended Indian Restaurant of the Year.
In India Rasoi means kitchen. The kitchen is the most important room of an Indian household. This is where the family come together to chat, relax, eat and there is always something delicious cooking on the stove. Like any good curry, Rasoi Lenzie has taken time – almost seven years.
The seed for Rasoi was planted back in 1993 however. Owners Pravesh (‘Bubbles’) & Rahul Randev opened Carriages where their mother, Mrs Randev would come and cook Vegetable Pakora for the regular customers of the bar. It was said that this was the best Pakora this side of Glasgow and that the family should think about opening an Indian restaurant.
Pravesh and Rahul Randev first experimented with Indian cuisine fifteen years ago with the launch of Delhi Express. This grew from strength to strength and founded a sound reputation for quality and value in the local area all thanks to Mrs Randev and her traditional home cooked dishes. A few years later the brothers acquired the bakery in Millersneuk Shopping Precinct with the vision to open a modern Indian restaurant and deli for the people of Lenzie and East Dunbartonshire.
Indian cooking isn’t just about simple curries. Here at Rasoi we hope to show you how bright and vibrant Indian cuisine can be. We believe we have created an outstanding restaurant with a concept which is very different to traditional Indian establishments. We are sure whatever your taste, with the highest quality and freshest ingredients partnered with a talented team, we can create a dish which is perfect for you. Our Executive Chef Sanjay Kanojia, has come from the highest quality hotels and restaurants across India and brings technical skills and knowledge of traditional Indian cookery. Our Head Chef Gurwinder Singh has travelled across Europe and India, from Delhi to Rajasthan, to Berlin to Dublin and ultimately to Lenzie, and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. The rest of the chef team have come from Hotels across the length of India each bringing fresh insight into the diversity of Indian cooking.
Now sit back, relax and be prepared to embark on a culinary tour of India, and once again a warm welcome to our kitchen, you’re part of the family now.
