Enjoyed it

I was not familiar with this style of food, so I went something safe.. Next time I'll try something more adventuresome. My friend had a spicy item and she likes spicy, it was spicy enough for her.

The food was great! We had it catered for a party and the food retained its great taste! The restaurant did really well with quality control on this big order! Everyone loved the food! And the party went very well! Would cater again! And highly recommend to others!

My friends and I love rasa ria! It's so great that this place exists in Kalamazoo. It's so nice to have a more rare cuisine available to us. The food is delicious and comes in good portion sizes , the prices are crazily low, and the staff/owners are so friendly! Great Malaysian and Indonesian food. Small area for seating, but... More

Just tried this place out with my son and his friend and I will go back to try other dishes. We all loved the curry puffs as an appetizer. This is 'storefront' style dining, so go pick out your own beverages from the cooler; order a really reasonably priced appetizer, and then start reading the fairly extensive menu. My son... More

A friend who had eaten Malaysian food in New York city referred us to Rasa Ria saying he liked it as much as at any Malaysian restaurant there. We did. We've gone there once weekly for years. We love as an appetizer the roti kanai with chicken curry. Don't forget the "pulled tea" to go with. My favorite dish is... More

The food was excellent and priced well. The servings were huge. I would recommend the Vegetable Lodeh and the pancake appetizers.

I definitely recommend this place. The restaurant is really small with maybe just 6-7 tables. Food was definitely delicious. My favorites are the beef rendang, buttered fried chicken, sticky rice with coconut, and chicken and beef satay (only served on Saturdays). I gave them a 4/5 because the service is pretty bad. The servers never really smile. They make you... More

Good food, though I've been to Indonesia and this was a different taste. Maybe more Americanized? Still good, though. Service left a lot to be desired.

We carried out, ordering the curry puffs, butter fried chicken, and the Beef Renang (sp?). Every bit of it was fabulous. I am now in love with Indonesian food. The beef dish had actual chunks of cinnamon bark, anise seed pods, and other fresh, whole seasonings I could not identify in the sauce. If you like Indian food or other... More

This is why I love college towns--they attract YUM international foods. Rasa Ria, a total hole in the wall is no exception. Got the tofu redang and some vegetarian soup on carry out, lemon grassy, fragrant and creamy from the coconut milk. Huge portions and reasonable too.
