Ten days until Father’s Day. It’s only around the corner!

Join us at Rasoi Waterfront or Rasoi Indian Kitchen on 17th June to celebrate Father Day’s.

Every dad who joins us on the day will receive a FREE Cobra beer.

Every dad is special in his own way, whether they like a spicy Chicken Madras, a traditional Lamb Balti or he likes to nibble on Rasoi’s famous Lamb Chops, there’s something for everyone.  If there’s going to be little ones in your party, don’t worry we have a children’s menu and are more than happy to find something they like.

It’s going to be a busy day for us so booking is essential.

Pupils flock to SA1’s Rasoi’s Waterfront

Pupils and staff from Grange Primary, West Cross, Swansea had an enlightening visit to the award winning Rasoi Waterfront restaurant at SA1’s J Shed recently.

Owner’s Jas & Suki Kullar welcomed the visitors to the prestigious waterfront restaurant with a fun filled programme for the Year 4 pupils to enjoy.  This included, food and drink cookery demonstrations, brief talks on the history of certain Indian foods, whilst also seeing how a busy restaurant operates.  The most popular part of the day was the making of the items previously demonstrated, the first being a traditional naan bread.  Pupils made two breads which could be filled with various tasty ingredients, included keema meat, garlic, coriander and coconut.   The second item made by each pupil was an Indian yogurt based fruit drink called a Lassi, using strawberries, raspberries or a mango. 

Each item produced was judged by Rasoi’s head chef and restaurant manager, with the top three in each category wining a trophy for first prize and a medal for second and third places.  Competition was fierce, but no one went home empty handed, with each pupil receiving a voucher to return back to the restaurant for a free meal. 

The teaching staff from Grange, Mrs Gully, Miss Maskell and Mr Booth even had a go at making these items, but none of these made it through to the judging.

The visit culminated with twenty-eight Year 4 pupils leaving the restaurant with no appetite for their school lunches on their return, but with smiles all round. 

Jas Kullar, commented, “It was such a pleasure to welcome these pupils from Grange Primary to our restaurant.  We hoped they learnt a lot about Indian cookery, how to use quality ingredients and best of all, how good it tastes.  After a brief demonstration how to make these two popular dishes, we were all very impressed with the quality of items being produced by the children.  Their enthusiasm and attention to detail was great to see.

Every pupil was a credit to the school and their parents.

If any of them need a job in the future, please come back and see us, but it might be quiet some time until this happens.”

Margarita

The Margarita dates back to the 1930’s and it’s no wonder it’s still alive and kicking today. Tequila, Cointreau, lemon juice and salt combine to make this a really crisp and fresh cocktail. The Cointreau helps to balance the margarita without taking anything away from the tequila, the perfect partnership!

Rasoi Waterfront Opens Doors to Swansea’s Homeless for Free Christmas Curry

The staff at Rasoi Waterfront, have served up around 40 Christmas curries to young people in need from across the city.

The Rasoi team opened their doors and welcomed people supported by the Swansea Young Single Homeless Project (SYSHP), based in the city’s Walter Road and provided them with a delicious meal with all the trimmings. Chefs served up fine Indian food to the youngsters at the waterfront restaurant, and to the SYSHP staff who give them much-needed practical and emotional support throughout the year.

Jas Kullar, co-owner of Rasoi Indian Kitchen and Rasoi Waterfront, said: “The ‘Christmas Curry’ has become something of a fixture in the Rasoi calendar and we are very pleased to continue with it this year. Last year we took the curry to SYSHP’s offices but this year we thought it would be nice to welcome our guests into the restaurant so they can enjoy the full festive experience.”

SYSHP Representative Isobel Smith said: “Many of our young people will have never experienced dining out in a restaurant before; and so we are extremely grateful to Rasoi for inviting us to their restaurant and providing a meal for our young people and staff to enjoy together, ahead of Christmas.

“SYSHP relies upon donations and support to enable us to continue with the work we do, supporting more than 110 young people aged 16 to 25 at any one time, with accommodation, emotional support and practical help. Last year we supported nearly 300 young people to live independently and become positive members of their communities. We do all we can to enable vulnerable youngsters go on to live enjoyable, productive lives and we appreciate the help we receive from local businesses and supporters.”

Jas continues: “We hope the event will raise awareness of the excellent work that is being carried out by SYSHP and the plight of people entrenched in poverty within Swansea.”
