Beautiful food. Their signature goat curry is to die for, as well as the Dosai. Friendly staff and really great prices.

Pungent flavors great big portions of delicious Indo Malaysia fare at fair prices. Byo wine makes dining affordable. Friendly and clean space on busy Cuba Street earns our recommendations. Will return to try more selections.

Friendly bustling tiny restaurant. Bright yellow walls and memorabilia all around. Food piping hot and tasty, traditional cooking. So great to find a personable spot in Wellington.

After hearing great reviews from my friends, I decided to go check it out myself. Went there and had the Goa Fish Curry and on another separate occasion, Mee Goreng. Anyway, coming from Singapore, when I ate the Goa Fish Curry, there wasn't any tamarind in the dish, which is expected from a fish curry served in Singapore and Malaysia.... More

Having lived in Wellington for the last 3 years I can't believe it's taken me so long to get to Rasa (probably because it's always SO BUSY when I walk past). It was definitely well worth the wait. The curry puffs are great - crispy on the outside, but soft on the inside with tasty fillings. I've been here 4... More

This restaurant has an amazing interior - the walls were packed with artifacts from Malaysia and India. Menu was extensive. I chose the chicken curry with peanut sauce, but it was lukewarm when it arrived, so had to send it back to the kitchen to heat up. Staff were very friendly and concerned about my disappointing meal.Otherwise thse food was... More

I eat here for lunch occasionally and have enjoyed everything I've tried. Love the masala dosai though its more than I can eat! Tried the beef rendang most recently and that was also delicious. Service is always friendly and the food is delivered speedily.

We walked passed Rasa earlier in the day to see if it were open on Monday and the hours - it declared on the door 5:00pm to Late for each day including Monday. Cool we decided to give it a go and planned to call in at 8:30 pm. Our goal was to try the Malaysian Food and we scoped... More
