After a successful meeting my colleagues took me to Rasoi Restaurant. Having a fondness for Indian food, thought I'd try something new. Had my eye on a lamb dish and okra caught my eye. Okra was a wise choice indeed. Great place for vegan diners as well. Come hungry and willing to try something different.

Rasoi is a fantastic hidden gem on the border of the East Side of Providence and Pawtucket. There are so many excellent choices on the menu, but their Cauliflower 65 and the assortment of Naan are our favorites.

This was a good place to eat before a play at Gamm as it is nearby and has quick service. There is quite an array of items - we enjoyed several chicken dishes and some vegetarian dishes.

To start, it was a crowded Saturday evening at the height of the dinner rush . . . Still, I think much of the slow service was induced by a very disorganized front desk. The young woman in charge of the front desk was more quiet than a mouse on Christmas Eve. When a table opened up and she was... More
