Mt Eliza is a haven for those lucky enough to live there and for day-trippers out from Melbourne. If you’re planning a trip to the Mornington Peninsula and fancy a feed when you get there, you could do a lot worse than calling in for a curry at The Rasoi Tandoori Mt Eliza on Ranelagh Drive. Their Indian menu takes in all the family: spice merchants, vegetarians, seafood lovers and more can all find a place at the table here. You won’t be the only ones though, so make sure you book a table ahead of time.
Indian food is a firm family favourite in Melbourne and beyond, so it isn’t surprising to hear that the Rasoi Tandoori Mt Eliza is the sort of place that can get busy. The reason the crowds come is clear: a real tandoor oven, a set of chefs that know how to use it and a menu that makes the most of it. This Mt Eliza Indian Restaurant on Ranelagh Drive is heavy on the meats and curries, with seekh kebabs, chicken tikka and lamb cutlets coming out of the oven at a rapid rate, and winging their way to your table.
The tandoor is not the whole story though. At the Rasoi Tandoori on Ranelagh Road in Mt Eliza, they do the full range of curries that one would expect to see, plus a few chef’s specials to keep the purists guessing. Hotheads can go for the beef vindaloo, and see if they can take it. Vegetarians are spoilt for choice, but we’d recommend the dal makhani if we were pushed. For the true curry connoisseur, the beef saag wala is sure to be a new experience. Whichever way you order, everyone in your party if sure to find something to satisify them at Rasoi Tandoori - truly one of the outstanding Indian restaurants in Melbourne.
The food and service here is consistently good, making this one of the best Indian restaurants on the Peninsula. We highly recommend the Rasoi Platter.
The food is excellent and the staff are so friendly is so nice to go there with friends and dine out together. It's always a very pleasant atmosphere. We have been multiple times and have always really enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended. Thank you to the staff who are always smiley and friendly.
Food was delicious. Best Indian I have had for quite a while. the only complaint was the door opening and closing for take away and as it was a cold night it made a difference.
Another neighbour gem. Portions are a little small though. Service is good n waitresses are friendly. Will definitely be back next time. Nice ambience and not too noisy.
We had a work dinner here last week. The food was good, plenty of options - for all tastes. We thought the service was a bit slow for a mid-week event, when there were not a lot of customers. Overall, I would go there again, and takeaway would be a great option, as the food is tasty! The entree platters worked a treat with our group of 8.
We had eaten at the Rasoi several years ago and had a mediocre meal so we decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and try it again. We are lost for words. The Seekh Kebab and Samosa starters that we ordered were fine. However, the Chilli Chicken and other Chicken Curry main dish that we ordered were made with a Chinese sweet and sour sauce base (with Indian spices added) that made the dishes so sweet we could not eat them. We are astonished that an established restaurant like this manages to get away with food that is so obviously not authentic.
My husband is Indian, you may get away with serving that food to a westerer but an Indian will pick up the faults pretty quickly.I myself had the butter chicken which had no taste at all , not enough spices . In this business, you also need to have an excellent customer service or at the very least a personality , which we feel this restaurant lacked. We will not be back.
unbelievably expensive dessert. I have never been to an Indian restaurant that would charge more than $10 for a serving of gulab jamun, let alone $12 for just 2 small balls and 2 small scoops of average vanilla ice cream!!! The actual meals themselves were cheaper. Take away menu listed gulab jamun as $10 and that was for 4 balls. When I questioned this, I was told that it was because it was take away and that because I had ice cream it was more. Will never come back again!
The food wasn't as nice as the Rasoi in Mt Martha. The samosas were not great value for money. The main meal was ok but not outstanding.
