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.

    Justice, our server, was awesome. Read our table well and assured a fantastic experience. The food? Phenomenal. Primarily a meat lover, we ordered entirely vegetarian. Everything was outstanding. Wish we lived closer.

    We cannot say enough about Rasai! It is exquisite fusion Indian food and it never disappoints. We joined for the special Thanksgiving meal and everything was perfect—the environment was cozy, the cocktails are generous and delicious and we visit wonderful food experiences and this is tip notch—-they even accommodated my husband who is vegan with as much love and care. What a gem in Fremont. It’s become our favorite in Seattle.

    The restaurant let me book online at 1:30 and then called me to tell that they actually close at 3 pm. Not a lot of food options. Probably seems like a drinks place rather than a food place. Way highly priced for the food quality. Service was great.

    The atmosphere was good but got very noisy when all the tables were occupied. The lighting was too dim to read the menu. The metal chairs were cold. Every time the front door opened there was a gust of wind blowing in. Vegetarian dishes were well presented but taste was ok, not worth the money. Overall not satisfactory.

    RASAI is a gorgeous restaurant! The drinks are as stunning visual as they are delicious! The food is beautifully prepared with depth of flavor that rarely appears in fine dining! Every aspect of the restaurant, food, & drinks are meticulously thought out! I’m so happy to have dined at RASAI this week! Compliments to the Owner, Chef, Bar, & Staff!

    Absolutely loved taking my sister to her birthday dinner at Rasai. Their cocktails were well-balanced, the food was phenomenal, the service was great (thanks, Justice), and the small restaurant is just generally cozy. I will definitely go again.

    Four of us went for dinner. The restaurant was packed on Friday. The chef is good & we enjoyed the food. There is a fair amount of staff & because of it orders are taken by all. A little confusing for clients. We would go back.

    Service was terrible. Our drinks came after the table next to us and we ordered first? The table on the other side asked for the check twice but their food was still being brought to the table. On tip of that they insult you 20% gratuity added for table of two and didn't put that on the menu. Don't go here...

    Food is good. If you are looking traditional Indian food you will be disappointed. It is kind of fusion. So you will be satisfied with the taste and mainly presentation. Service is impeccable. Waiter is keep on asking about food. My next table they were not happy with the lamb. He immediately changed it with no extra charge. Cons : place is very very small. You can hear next table conversation. I literally bumped to next table gentleman 😂.

    I have dined here twice earlier this year and had great experience. It appears that they’ve had a staff turnover and menu has changed. On my most recent visit the service was very poor, disorganized staff, the new menu was disappointing

    Overpriced 2. Average ambience 3. Wait time is more than an hour. (Had a prior reservation before going. Had to wait 20 mts to get the table and 40 mts for the food. Total wait time - 1+ hr) 4. 20% mandatory gratuity even for a party of 2(owners are super greedy. They should be paying their employees well for the exorbitant rates that they are charging and not transfer that burden to the customer in the form of mandatory gratuity) 5. Taste was average. Definitely not worth the price 6. Quantity is slightly more than what a 3 year old can eat. I’m really surprised how this restaurant is full and has 4.0 star

    Lots of unnecessary upselling. My friend tried to order the short rib, and the waiter told him it was not available- the special was the replacement. That replacement cost three times as much as the original dish!! Jackfruit bao was delicious, but overall, the value is not great. I’d go back, but there are a lot of other places I’d try first.

    Vegetarian food was good. Would recommend jack fruit bun,fig kofta Non vegetarian food was not bad. Hen lababdaar, Prada biryani ( goat biryani)lamb curry. Tiramisu rabri was good. Umami naan ( mushroom naan) was good. Drinks were horrible. All in all too expensive for the service ( very slow service) and food. Not worth the money spent

    The food was excellent but either the kitchen got really backed up or they forgot to put in our order and we had to wait around 45 minutes for dinner, and then one of our entrees was wrong. Service wasn't amazing either since no one came to offer us additional drinks or anything else while we were waiting. However, they owned their mistakes and apologized and then gave us a free dessert and took the mixed up entre off our bill. The food was great so we'll try again.

    Very ordinary food and no exceptional taste. They seem to be charging high amounts only for the fancy names they have given to the tasteless dishes on the menu. The restaurant ambience and seating also leaves a lot to be desired - cold metallic chairs and tight seating with barely any space on the table beyond couple of plates and bowls. The only good thing seemed to be the servers who were friendly and attentive.

    This place has absolutely amazing food. They've changed their menu a bit over the last few months, but it is continuously stellar. Try the scallops and the biryani-like dish. Also, don't neglect their cocktails. Shikanji was fabulous!

    The server messed up our drinks and then food. It took him a while to clear it out but he was a good person and kept on apologizing for it. Other than that I feel they should give each table enough space as the tables are so close to each other that if you need to go to the bathroom, u would disturb the table next to you. Food was excellent. But I think they should fix the seating part.

    Good food ,really impressive presentation and some really refreshing cocktails. I loved how the fig kofta and lamb tasted and the naans were top notch. I was also a big fan of kaalakhatta cocktail and the mango vesper. Service really needs to be improved here as that was one thing that left a lot to be desired. Messing up orders ,forgetting to check up and a very unprofessional way of slamming the food on the table ??

    Liked my first visit, but Disappointed on my 2nd visit. Had paneer starter, pork buns, lamb and beef ribs . Lamb was NOT good. Sauce too acidic and unbalanced. Beef was decent and I really liked the pork buns. Everything else was meh. Cocktails were ok, but not amazing. Server was so quiet we couldn’t hear him. Only one restroom and it has a urinal in it. Not pleasant. 3 of us spent 200.00 and we left uninspired .
