I have been to Rasoi and Kabob and Curry many times and was thrilled when this restaurant turned up a mere minutes from my house. I have a great friend who introduced me to Indian years ago and Kabob is usually the "GNO" (girl's night out) destination. We took my daughter to Rasa last night to introduce her to Indian cuisine and to celebrate a couple of occasions.
We recieved a really warm, friendly greeting (my daughter and I arrived first) and were seated right away - we did make a reservation even though it was a weeknight - just to be sure - this place is popular! Very pretty inside, small, but surprisingly quiet - I loved the decor. When my friend arrived we ordered drinks and started with appetizers: potato and pea samosas and the (yummy yummy) cauliflower 65. My daughter who is not too keen on cauliflower just loved it - just enough spice to peek her interest without being overpowering. Sauces, samosas were great - very fresh. For entrees we had the lamb and spinach, chicken tikka masala and the honey/ginger duck. We tossed in some nan as well - the honey ginger nan is such gooey goodness - very tasty. The lamb and spinach was just great - once again, my daughter (who has winced at lamb before) loved it. The chicken tikka was a hit as well. We all picked from all of the plates and really had a great meal. The duck was very tasty as well - the only thing I would mention is that the serving size for the dish was small. Ok, I would have eaten 6 pounds of it, but a bit larger portion may be conducive to the price charged. It is a pricey night, but well worth it.
All in all it was a great fun night. We did tone down on the spices due to my daughter's "induction" but we know that from previous experiences the heat can be adjusted to what you like - you want to kick it up, they will kick it up. All staff was attentive, informed on the items and on the ball - I will certainly be back...many times, I'm sure.
