Didn't go to the Japanese restaurant but apart from that I can say that this is easily the best restaurant on the resort. This is an excellent North Indian curry house. Papadoms were served with what looked like home made chutneys. A vegetarian starter of paneer, onion bhajis and a pea/potato cake was excellent. Then a tandoori sea bass dish was superb, with the fish cooked to perfection. Tarka dal was good if a little bland. And the chicken tikka curry was really good. Naans and rice were good. Mango lassis superb. This was also the cheapest meal we had at the resort in four nights. Atmosphere was good in a restaurant that was modern and fresh. Go.

We had a set menu dinner here. I enjoy Indian food and have eaten it in many places around the world, and Naan didn't disappoint. We had the Lucknowi dinner and it was superb. Beautiful flavours, excellent chef. My son had a kids menu and loved his meal, especially as it wasnt too spicy. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We went there on the second night staying in Rasa Ria. Actually I was quite skeptical about going to an Indian restaurant in Malaysia... but since we have already tried Coast on the first night and Tepi Laut (Malaysian cuisine) was really bad, we thought maybe we should try our luck. We were not disappointed. Food was really great and the service was good too. They have quite a lot of selections on the menu, including vegetarian dishes. As well, they have listed out which dishes contain nuts which I think is quite considerate. We tried 3 snacks, one curry main dish and garlic naan. The prawns (starter) were a bit overcooked but they tasted fine.

There are 'outdoor' seatings (still within the roof of the resort actually) but if you can't stand the humidity, you can sit inside to enjoy the aircon.

Don`t usually "go out" for Indian food but made the exception here as this restaurants menu looked so tempting. And we weren`t disappointed! You can opt to order several startes and "nibble" or - as we did - order a starter and a main (you won`t have room for dessert!).
I was worried that the food would be very spicy, but it was more flavoursome than spicy and I really enjoyed it. I had fish cooked in the tandoor oven and that was scrummy - the fish was moist and fresh, with just enough kick to keep you alive.
The decor is very simple and elegant, but the only negative would be if you sit outside - there is a "smoking area" directly opposite the outside seating area, so as you are eating, there may be groups of people standing 10 feet away watching you while they are smoking. This could be rectified if the hotel moved the area a little.
The food is reasonably priced and the drinks expensive if you have a bottle of wine - not so bad if you have beers, but it is nicer to have wine with your meal as you could feel very full if you have beer, rice and curry!
Would highly recommend this restaurant - especially if you don`t usually have non takeaway Indian food, as the staff will adapt anything on the menu to suit your taste.

The food was great and selection could never be better having all the classics and more. You could choose to have the meal spicy or not really and the side dishes were great. The staff were very cheer full and common through KK. Having going there twice in one trip the staff got to know us and were very helpful. Best Indian in KK.
