Eat happily till you can @ Rasoi Ghar

Thali with a small twist. There will be innumerable comparisons being drawn with a Thali place just a km away. How is Rasoi Ghar different? Well, the starters are served at the start separately. Ok great & then? Then its a Thali where mains,rice and dessert will be served together. So that means its just a Thali with Starters served separately? Errr… Yess. Hmmm…

Lets see independently how this place fares.

Ambiance: Nice ambiance with 2 seating areas. 1 is the conventional tables setting while the other is a typical marwadi setting with low tables and colorful mattresses/ seats placed on the ground. Would have loved to sit down but it had a longer waiting period. The area where we were seated had the lights off for some reason and was darker than the rest of the restaurant.

Another miss for me were the blue plastic glasses which were a misfit in the royal experience of heavy katoris and silver thalis….can be improved on this front.

Service: Very professional, cheerful and quick at the same time. The steward explains the menu on a tablet and then begins the experience. The waiters make sure you eat more than you initially intended to with their cheerful persuasion. Top Notch!

Food:

The trio of Starters:

Kachori Chaat: Kachori in a sweet sour spicy yogurt base which was absolutely delectable.

Harabhara kebab tasted more like an Aloo Tikki. Dhokla was passable.

The Welcome drink of nimbu sherbet was neither lemony nor sweet and tangy.

On my next visit, the trio of starters was perfect with the Dahi Vadas & samosa.

Mains:
Liked: The palak paneer where the palak gravy was rich and flavourful.

The Mix sabzi that had a zingy aftertaste to it. The Gujrathi Kadhi which was sweet and had a tadka to it. The Puranpoli had a smooth filling inside and was a pocket sweet. The Jalebi was crunchy and perfectly sweet.

Can be improved:

Aamras was liquidy for my liking.
Methi Thepla was chewy and missed the toasty crust of a Thepla. On my next visit, the Puris & Rotis were very fresh.

Chaas didn’t have the tempering to make it a wonderful Masala Chaas. Its when i got the mustard seeds and cumin at the bottom of my glass was when I realized it was intended to be a Masala Chaas.

Can add a Salad/ Kachumber for some fresh relief to the food.

Pricing: At 42 Dhs a plate, slightly pricier compared to its thali peers. But, still value for money.

Final Verdict:

I would visit this place for seating the traditional way to have the thali. They need to work on the food taste to differentiate from the Thali peers.
