After going there previously with family, I decided to go there with some friends. We were offered some premeal snacks which we gratefully accepted. It's only when the bill arrived that we realised that this was not a complimentary offering- they Could at least have mentioned this when serving it. The main course food was good and to a reasonable... More

Brilliant service, delicious food for meat eaters and vegetarians too, great surroundings, bit pricey but that included two bottles of wine, left feeling very full! Will return again.

I have been to various South Indian restaurants in the UK and often the food is just about alright. Sadly, Rasa is no different. It is just 'alright'. Hence my hunt for a good South Indian restaurant shall continue. As far as my experience is concerned, I feel the staff needs to relax a little and not walk continuously back... More

Best curry we've had in Newcastle so far, and we will definitely be back! We booked on a Saturday night and I'm glad we did, as the place really filled up by about 8 pm. It's bright and cheerful inside, and the servers were very friendly. The menu is South Indian, so it's unique and a welcome change from the... More

Always excellent and very different from your usual curry. Rated by Indian friends too. I recommend the unpronounceable kingfish curry that comes with tapioca root.
