Little Malaysian Corner in the heart of Cubam Wellington

Came here for dinner with a friend. The front does not look that enticing but we were hungry and craving for curry, so we thought we might as well try. Upon entering, we noticed that the place was a bit cramped with not much elbow room or to just simply put down your bags if you happen to be... read more

Wellington has some amazing food places. This whole street is lined with restaurants. The food was ok. The portion size is small. I ordered the fish sambal, rice and a mango lassi. The portion of rice and curry was just enough for one person. The cost of the meal all up came to $23. The curries don't come with rice... More

We love both Indian and Malaysian food. I asked for a kids mild mee goreng but it was too hot for me. Not so keen on the flavours or the price. Tried the beef rendang and was really disappointed. It was bland and had too much chilli again.

Have been here quite a few times! I love the sauces and tasty food! It's a must try but you really need to like authentic Malaysian! It's very affordable and in a good location in upper Cuba! Enjoy :) byo wine too!

Rasa is good value for money, and isn't trying to pretend it's anything else. The food was good, really tasty and good prices. Beer was also reasonably priced. The atmosphere was busy, crowded and noisy, and the service was very fast. We had the goat curry (very tasty), and a lamb murtabak wrap (also tasty). The only suggestions I can... More

I was in Wellington for work so had a takeaway from Rasa. It was quick and the food was excellent. The dosa (bread) was light, fresh crispy and delicious. I had chicken curry which was tasty but not heavy and a good size for one. And a side of steamed veges. Just what I needed! Would definitely visit again

Had a lovely experience at Rasa... it's a small place but I got there early so it wasnt too noisey or full. I liked the quirky charm about the place. The wait staff were efficient and kept conversation to a minimum. I had the goa fish curry with rice and roti. So yummy and full of flavour! I ate it... More

A small restaurant on Cuba Street. Seating is tight but the food is fantastic. The perfect late night spot.
