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

Tasty, authentic dosa! Very nice inside, clean and good decoration. Felt different to most Indians in the town.

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.

Spur of the moment decision on walking past as has been on our to try list for a while and now wish we had kept walking - staff pleasant but felt they were trying to 'upsell' and encourage us to over order, felt the food was over spiced with chillies so very little flavour to be found and the waiter...

I attended this restaurant for the first and last time in December 2014 as part of a large work party of around 20 for the Christmas lunch time banquet and have only now been able to write a review! We had already paid £25 pound each for this without fully knowing what we would be getting for the money. I... More

I visited Rasa with 5 friends and was very impressed by the food, drinks and especially the staff! Firstly there was a large selection of good value wines, I'd recommend the Chenin Blanc. The food was amazing, lots of different poppadoms and dips, a huge vegetarian selection for starters and mains and variety of sides and breads, not just the... More

This was my third visit to Rasa and I really should go more often. My wife and I went to Rasa for her birthday meal. We both chose the selected 'Restaurant Week' menu. We had the popadoms and chutney while we waited. The selection and variation of both the popadoms an the chutneys were excellent. The starter was mixed seafood... More

I got more than what I expected when I ordered the masala dosa. Must have it here! The sambhar n the chutney are quite authentic and the decor n the music gives you a complete south indian experience.
