Executive head chefs Nalin Patel, Sarker Nasim Ahmed, Srinad Narisetty and owner Rex Patel lead Rasoi’s kitchen and have reinvented traditional Indian Cuisine by introducing a tapas style menu inspired by different cultures while still maintaining bold Indian flavours. Nalin, and Rex are of Gujurati Indian decent which is known widely for their fresh subtle flavours and vegetarian cooking. Sarker Nasim Ahmed is from Bangladesh, which is known for the preparation of flavourful meat and seafood dishes and for using potent herbs and spices to create a variety of masalas. Srinad Narisetty is South Indian known for their Hyderabadi style of cooking and Dhosa specialties. As well our line cooks are from various regions in India such as Punjab which is in the North of India and known for using the tandoor oven for baking naan breads and meats with rich, bold flavours, as well as the South of India which is known for using fiery and aromatic spices and for their fresh seafood specialties. The kitchen staff also likes to keep the dining experience fun and innovative by having popular street food items on the menu that are very popular in Indian metropolitan cities such as Mumbai. Owner Rex Patel also likes to keep things interesting by keeping up with North American food trends and applying a modern spin on classical Indian food.
I come from a traditional Indian Gujarati home, where my mother would cook for our family every day. My father, my brother and I would get so excited when she would yell out that dinner was ready, we would stop doing whatever we were doing (even putting our video games on pause) to run over to the dining room table. My mother would create such mouth watering dishes from recipes that were passed down from her mother and her mother before that. When I was a young boy and would get into mischief (which happened quite often), my mother would punish me, not by sending me to my room or by taking away my television privileges, but instead forcing me to help her in the kitchen preparing dinner. While the other kids were playing in the park or riding their BMX bikes, I was chopping garlic, ginger, onions and peeling potatoes. I hated every moment of it until I tasted what I helped create. After a while I discovered my passion for cooking and I am forever grateful to my mother for showing me around the kitchen and passing down her family recipes to me. This restaurant is dedicated to her, my mother, Panna Patel for teaching me everything I know :- REX
