It's a must

Small restaurant on Cuba Street, pooped in for early dinner. Good service and great food, goat curry was flavoursome and tasty. Couple of other amazing looking dishes brought out so have to go back to try them. Toilets are out back via the kitchen so you get to see all the cooking action, clean and... read more

Not the classiest of restaurants, but the food is outstanding. The reasonableness bill will also surprise you. The restaurant was bursting at the seams when I was there on a Monday.

I came on Saturday night and while I was the first there at like 545, the food came out super quick which I was super pleased with. I have been there heaps of times and it has always been top...

Such good food! Small place so pretty cramped, but that's ok since the food was so good. We ordered poppadoms and a squid sambal (which was delicious and at the top end of my spice-meter!) and a lamb curry. All delicious!

The Rasa located in Upper Cuba Street has a well-earned reputation for being a good place to indulge in a Curry or a Dosai. My colleague and I dropped in after a couple of pints at the Vagabond and had dinner here. The Rasa is fairly small in size so there’s not much room to spread yourself out. We had... More

We had a brilliant meal out and BYO at Rasa earlier this week. It was jam-packed, but even so the food came out in excellent time, and was AMAZING. There were so many things on the menu I could have ordered, and I was extremely happy with the meal I chose as were all of my friends. The prices were... More

We were here one rainy Wellington midweek evening. It was packed to the brim with one tiny table by the window to squeeze into. Looking around all the meals being delivered looked excellent, but on checking the menu and seeing masala dosa, that was it - it is one of my all time favourites, and this did not let me... More

On a Wednesday evening I went past Tulsi and Little India which were both almost empty and arrived at Rasa, which was completely full except for one small table by the door. I was pleased to get that table, as I had no booking and some restaurants will turn away solo dners if they're busy, hoping to get higher-margin couples.... More

Love Rasa, come here time and time again. Favourite is the dosai (amazing!) but it's all yummy. Cheap and cheerful.
