Description: Rasam Restaurant excels at serving consistent quality food served in a creative but authentic Indian style. We pride ourselves on our fresh ingredients including Indian spices that are mixed, roasted & ground daily at Rasam Restaurant. We very much consider hospitality to be much more than just a social formality. Visit us and enjoy the dishes we present with great pride.

“I would travel back to Ireland just to eat here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Tucked away in a parade of shops in a quiet suburban street, this unassuming little place reinvents Indian cuisine with a passion that seems to attract awards and accolades from almost all who visit. There's no Chicken Tikka Masala or Onion Bhaji on the menu here; what you do get is a refreshing contemporary selection of dishes which you'll want to come back and try until you've had them all. It's not the cheapest place in town, but it's worth every penny.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Rasam has just won the Best Ethnic Restaurant in Ireland for the third time and it little wonder why. They manage to make the food interesting and tasty with the ful blown hotness. I have tasted most of the Menu and there is nothing on it that is not just brilliant.

“Price was the most exotic aspect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Very tasty and 'different' Indian food. Service friendly but slow.
The price for two at just under €100 was a shock - especially as it included only one glass of beer and a modest order of food.
It seems that the recession has passed by this establishment.

“Love it love it love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

This is a treasure my partner and I were introduced to approx 3 years ago. Since then it has been a once a fortnight visit on a thursday and that is only because some restraint has to be exercised!! Otherwise we would quite happily be stuck in the door at every hands turn!!! We have been taken by very few restaurants in the way that we have with Rasam. The staff are most welcoming, happy and courteous to a fault and then comes the food... If we were only allowed one more meal in this life it would be here.. Rasam would win hands down everytime.. Starters.. Aloo Tikki and a Rasam Platter.. mains, Lal Maas steamed rice and Peshwari naan and the beautiful Murgh Chicken with podi maas (potatoes) garlic onion and coriander naan, that's our fix and we have never been disappointed, and another amazing thing we have noticed is that having just about left the pattern on the plates, we never have that "stuffed" or having "over eaten" feeling.. must be the magic in the spices!! So worth a visit, an absolute must. Thank you Nisheeth and staff
