Most of the pure vegetarian Indian restaurants that our herbivore friends like to visit tend to either be a bit dull, or they involve a schlep to zone 4. Gujarati Rasoi has neither of these problems, and more to the point, the food is legitimately what a Gujarati family would make and serve at home. You come here to try dishes that you won’t get at other regular Indian spots, and the restaurant itself feels like a cosy and cool locals-only kind of place (and not just because it’s in Dalston). We like to come here for a low-key date before wandering into one of the neighbouring bars for a drink.
Gujarati Rasoi is permanently closed.
