Had a wonderful dinner with family. Rasa is one of our favourite restaurants in the city and never disappoints. The service is great, ambiance is lovely and the food is incredible! Defiantly a perfect place for any event whether it's a family dinner, date night or girls night out!

Hubby and I love Rasa and have been several times. The only reason I didn’t give it an excellent in all categories is because of the table we were seated at. The heating or ac, not sure what it was but it kept coming and it was very noisy. Plus we were seated in the back by the washrooms. This was our Valentines dinner and it was a little disappointing.

Food is excellent. Very COVID compliant, staff are attentive and very pleasant. Lamb Vindaloo and Chicken Korma very flavourful! Eggplant was to die for and my husband doesn’t Even like eggplant! LOVED how quiet the restaurant was! Will be our ‘go to’ Halifax restaurant!

Food is always very fresh. The flavors are complex and not watered down for the maritime pallet - a good thing!

Great meal with group of 6 during Covid timeframe. Hard to hear servers sometimes through masks when menu items are in another language and there are accents involved, but that is hardly anyone's fault, they did well. Food was sooooo good and we found it reasonably priced for the quality and amount. Great night.

We tried a tasting platter and several small dishes and each was delicious. Very complex and tasty flavours, lovely presentation, and excellent service. It's some of your favourite Indian food (but elevated) and some dishes we'd never seen before. A must try !

The food was great. However the problem was with Open Table! I initially booked the table for 1930 and then changed to 2015. I received confirmation from Open Table and the day before a text asking if I would confirm my reservation, which I did. When I arrived Rasa informed me my table was given away as I had not arrived in time for 1930. I explained and proved by way of emails and texts that my reservation had been amended . They were insistent that it wasn’t their fault and that Open Table had not informed them. We were eventually given a table but it took a long time and we felt that we were not welcome and felt rushed. We were so looking forward to the food (which was great), but the overall experience was tainted .

Wonderful to be back. Comfortable while observing the restrictions. Food was as good as remembered except for the appetizers that were a bit disappointing. A glitch due to the present circumstances I am sure.

The food was plentiful and literally out of this world in regards to flavour and freshness. We dined in and the food arrived quickly, was very hot and delicious with large portion sizes, a really good value for the price. All four of us were very pleased with our meals and the ambience of the restaurant. The lighting was low and the space was very clean and comfortable. We were seated quickly upon arrival, I recommend reservations because the place did fill up fast. The tables were neatly spaced out with lots of room between guests, it was a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere, great for a date or casual night out with friends. My only complaint was in regards to covid precautions, our server was excellent in regards to service and attitude, but they were wearing their mask incorrectly. It was lowered below their nose making it completely ineffective for both the wearer and the guest. I would rather see the server NOT wear a mask, than wear in ineffectively. Staff may need to have further discussions about PPE and how it works, and why you wear it. Ask questions and express opinions/complaints openly. Maybe the current masks given to employees are too big or uncomfortable, there are many styles and designs out there, made locally as well. Education and understanding with a willingness to explore new options will benefit us all in this "new normal". I understand that working in a kitchen environment during the summer may make wearing a mask very uncomfortable, so maybe look at masks made from different types of material as well, something layered but with lighter material may feel a little cooler in the heat. This complaint does not affect my 5 star rating, this is definitely my new favourite restaurant and I highly recommend it to others. I felt safe in the restaurant and our server took proper social distancing measures and we definitely left a generous tip. I look forward to visiting again in the future.

Fantastic food, and excellent staff. The premises are clean and well kept. A great dining experience. The only down side i found was that the bill at the end of the evening was a little higher than i would have expected compared to other restaurants in the area. Definitely a place worth going to but not something i could afford on a regular basis.

A lovely evening. First of all we love the cocktails from the adjoining Sura so ask for that cocktail menu. They will get them from Sura. Food was excellent and the service was friendly, helpful and informative. We tried new dishes and they were all delicious. We will be back again.

Vakentines was a RIPoff. Price wasn't posted or on the menu and ended up $200. It's too bad because the serving size was sufficient, presentation very nice and for the most part delicious. Ambiance was pleasant with live music. They should have communicated the price and let the customer make the decision. Regular menu looks appealing and reasonably priced.
