Delicious entrees at reasonable prices

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... read 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.

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 amazed to see all those...

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.

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
