Great value

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... read 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.

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.
