Reasonable price and fantastic food!

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.

My favourite place to eat whilst we were in Wgtn. Great vibe, beautiful food, friendly staff. Very busy even on a Tuesday night. We were lucky to get a table. Highly recommend.

The food were exotic, tasty and plentiful (maybe a little too much). The Nasigoreng and Biriyani is just massive, which is quite hard to finish unless you are a big eater. The services are very nice, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is beatifully decorated, which keeped us entertained while waiting for food. Questionable place for toilet...

Busy restaurant serving excellent Malaysian and South Indian food. Booking not essential but it is very popular in a street that has lots of different eating outlets. Not overly expensive and the food had lots of taste. BYON bottle as a bonus.
