Good but not great

Posted on 07 / 10 / 2013

I was a little bit disappointed in the food at Raj's Rasoi. I've been for both the lunch buffet and dinner (menu), and while it's good, it's also a little bland for my taste. I don't love super spicy food, but Raj's is just lacking something. Also, the decor could use some sprucing up, it's pretty run down inside.

Pros: All vegetarian, Reasonably priced lunch buffet
Cons: Ambience, Flavors a little flat

My favorite veggie restaurant in St. Louis

Posted on 08 / 29 / 2012

Raj's Rasoi seems like a secret. It is located off the beaten path in a neighborhood of the St. Louis suburb Maryland Heights. Raj is an amazing cook and the restaurant features authentic Indian cuisine, all vegetarian. They are also very accommodating to vegans. If you let them know you're vegan they will make a special batch of vegan roti bread and if you're there for the lunch buffet, they always look out to make sure that enough vegan options are available.

I make it out to Raj's every chance I get and I've never been disappointed.

Pros: Amazing food, Great options, Good value
Cons: Location is not ideal

Best Indian Food in St Louis

Posted on 08 / 10 / 2012

Raj's Rasoi is definitely one of my favorite places to eat in STL. There are so many vegan options and the owner is always willing to accommodate and make a dish vegan, if possible, at your request. They are also very helpful with identifying which items are already vegan. There is a daily lunch buffet, which usually has several vegan options. My favorites are the veggie samosa, veg pakora, veggie burgers (ask them to remove the cheese and the chutney (green) sauce for vegan), aloo saag (asked to be made vegan), bhindi masala, and the dosas. The restaurant has expanded and now has another side to accommodate large parties. If you're in STL, you must try Raj's Rasoi!

(I previously wrote a review; not sure where it went.)

Pros: delicious vegan Indian food, affordable pricing, daily lunch buffet

Raj and his wife are an excellent team

Raj gives you the family atmosphere and great Indian food at the same time. His wife is a wonderful baker and you can order custom birthday/wedding/cupcakes from her. Its a bit of a drive, but its one of the best places in town for Indian food!

Good service, huge menu

Posted on 01 / 23 / 2011

It's a little hard to find (or maybe I'm just directionally challenged), but once you get there, it's fantastic. The owner was very friendly, the service was attentive and fast, and they project Indian music videos and Bollywood movies on the wall some evenings. It is not 100% vegan, but they are extremely accommodating if you are--all dishes are clearly marked, and vegan options exist for many of the dishes if you ask. They're also very clear on heat level--if you like your food super hot, you've got it; if not (like me), they can dial it down for you.

The samosas are lovely, the food is generally brilliant and very reasonably priced. I just saw that Raj's Rasoi had no reviews and wanted to remedy the situation.

Pros: wide variety-good food, good value, friendly service
