Although we enjoy all Indian food, this was a nice departure from the usual saag paneer and chana masalas. The pappadum assortment with various chutneys and pickles made for a good starter. I ordered a yogurt mango sweet and sour curry and a side of spicy cabbage. Both were delish. I wish I would've tried the recommended masala dosas, but... More

Good location off Quayside. Excellent food, lot of choices and stylish service. The place needs redecorating as it is oldish and it was really warm inside (too warm considering it was sunny this day in NCL).

Been to Rasa quite a few times now and enjoy it every time. It's one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to, and they really cater well to vegetarians and vegans. If you go there try the Dosas! :)

All food was served to very high standards and the service outstanding. There is so much variety on offer here for vegetarians... More

Back at Rasa. Quite consistent excellent service. Dishes you cannot get anywhere else. Just well worth the visit. Not cheap but that's acceptable given the quality.

Its different from what you usually find in the UK. Went with side and two friends, and we all had the Rasa feast. It was just... More

Not unique, but exceptional of it's type. Not the usual fare served in 'Indian' restaurants, a combination of northern sub-continent and Bangladeshi foods, sometimes rehashed for a percieved British palate. This is not a critisism, I have eaten some wonderful meals in establishments of this type. However Rasa provides something different. It is one of a small chain, the others... More

The staff at Rasa are superb and the customer service is excellent. This is not your normal Indian Restaurant and the menu contains many unfamiliar dishes. As we have not visited this restaurant before we opted for the Rasa Feast, this includes a selection of snacks and pickles, a trio of starters, four mains, rice, bread and desert. An absolute...

If you are looking for genuine South Indian cuisines this is highly recommended. Their service is excellent and food is delicious. It is bit pricey though. Hence one star less.
