Rahi means traveler in Hindu. Besides perfectly fitting our approach to life, it is also a modern Indian bistro serving artisanal Indian cuisine by Chef Chintan Pandya.
Chef Pandya used to be the head chef at Junoon (one Michelin star) where we ate once three years ago, then he left to open his own restaurant in Greenwich Village.
Contrary to Junoon, which was more sophisticated, chic and expensive, Rahi is the bistro version, accessible and affordable for younger crowd.
For our lunch on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, we all chose the set menu (starters + mains) at 22 USD, but guests can also opt for the three-course deal (starters, mains & desserts) at 29 USD.
The Eggplant Barta, charcoal smoke, onion and cumin was highly perfumed and a delicately spiced, but the killer starter dish was the Edamame Artichoke Chaat, spinach chips, tamarind and pomegranate: crispy, light, perfectly cooked and well-balanced, a real delight.The mains dishes were Three Mango Cod, Banana Leaf Chicken and Classic Butter Chicken, all very good, but the Three Mango Cod did stand out for us.
Their selection of Nans was terrific : Butter Naan, Garlic Naan, Malai Paneer Naan and Booti Wali Naan.
The drink list was short, but had a good selection of local and Indian beers as well as an incredible Kaffir Mango Lassi.
The service was young but dynamic and charming.
Rahi may not have the same sophisticated and exclusive atmosphere as Junoon, but the food was quite good, more affordable and lively.
