About the restaurant
Rasoi is the next generation in the Aslam family’s vision to delight the Bay Area with their unique, award-winning Northern Indian and Pakistani cuisine. Sprung from master chef Mohammed Aslam’s widely celebrated flagship restaurant Aslam’s Rasoi in San Francisco’s Mission District, this creative collaboration by Mr. Aslam’s sons integrates the much beloved family-friendly Rasoi (Kitchen) concept into a contemporary restaurant and chill lounge setting on the peninsula. Executive Chef Asif Aslam performs magic in the kitchen by putting his own signature on a well-curated staple of mouth-watering family recipes. Drawing from his diverse experiences at his dad’s restaurant and as personal chef for a host of distinguished Bay Area personalities, one of the region’s most talented young restaurateurs enjoys nothing more than to enhance his culinary genes with the kinds of subtle accents known to elicit spontaneous “oohs.”

Love the the food at Rasoi. The service was a little slow, maybe because we went on Valentine Day. Overall I would recommend Rasoi.

Yeti's was a great change of pace! I had the Aboo Gobi - it was delicious! My husband tried the Tandori Chicken - it took a while for the sizzling plate of plentiful chicken to cool enough for handling, but it was worth the "wait", We ordered plain nan; the serving size was enough for3-4 people! I had Chardonnay from a local winery; my husband ordered a Taj Mahal (of course). We left quite satisified.
