Delicious!

We recently enjoyed a delicious meal at Rasa. Friendly staff greeted us at the door and promptly took our order. We had the vegetarian dosai and the vegetarian murtaback. Both were very tasty and filling. We liked the warm atmosphere and have decided that we will visit again to try more items from... read more

An unplanned dinner out on Friday night, my friend and I were lucky to get a table. We were a little squished in, but that didn't matter at all. The food is delicious! I had the lamb curry (you have to order rice separately, but it comes in such an appealing cone shape I didn't even mind) and roti bread.... More

I have been here a few times and its always so busy which is a great sign. The food itself is nice but not the best I have had in Wellington. I think what makes this place so popular is that its very well priced and you get huge portions. I would have no issues recommending this restaurant as long... More

This is a great little restaurant in Wellington with consistently great food. It is small but has a really nice atmosphere, great service and fabulous curries.

Obviously a very popular place! Had dinner here last night with friends who say it is one of their favourite restaurants in Wellington. The food was very reasonably priced and generous servings. I thought my entrée was a bit on the spicy side for "mild" but I still enjoyed it. The waiting staff were very quick to attend to you... More

We were looking for a nice place to eat near our hotel and we walked down Cuba Street and found many restaurants. Rasa was packed with customers and abuzz with conversation. The Fish Curry was recommended to us by another customer, and we also ordered lamb curry, a nice vegetarian curry, a beef dish and a dosa. All were very... More

Our family dined at this restaurant on Cuba Street. The tables are very close together- rather cramped to take advantage of the small space. On a Saturday night, the place was packed with a steady stream of customers coming and going. We sampled the curries, jasmine rice and butter chicken. The latter was a favorite of the group. Most of... More

This part of Wellington is great. It's quirky, vibrant and always busy. Rasa is in the heart of it. It's not flash, but it serves delicious food, quickly and with good service.

We recently had dinner at this restaurant. The place we planned to go to was closed, and my husband found this over the road. It was very full, with good food, served quickly and at reasonable prices. We will certainly return.
