This was the first time we have been to Rasa, but had wanted to visit for a while. Loved the quiet atmosphere, sophisticated wait staff and of course the food. Only one criticism - I like my food to be very hot (temperature) and it could have been kept hotter. Maybe some tabletop tealight plate warmers would have been good. We will definitely be back, I think this will be one of my favourite restaurants.

Excellent pleasant, intelligent service; good distance from the nearest tables; delicious food with one exception, the 2 breads were mediocre and I LOVE Indian breads.

Unfortunately I did not enjoy my experience that night. The food was cold, the service was inappropriate as they didn’t leave us alone and we were having a business meeting; constantly interrupted with offerings of water etc. Just leave the jug on the table. Then the lights get turned on Full at 9am!!!
I felt like I was at a school disco.
Sorry very disappointed; as the first time we went it was so much better, that I wanted to recommend to my business partners.
None of the five of us was impressed unfortunately.
I will try the restaurant again and hopefully it will be a better, hotter food and a more relaxed staff experience and we will be sure to leave before the lights go ON!!!

We tried a few new “flavours” dishes and loved them! There was also a small mix up with a few side dishes that we ordered but they were very gracious to replace them at no extra cost.

We have travelled the world and we love East Indian food. Rasa is definitely the best we have ever experienced. I wish Canada had Michelin Star because this restaurant deserves it. Bravo. We loved it so much the first time we went that we went back again the next night! I would move in if I could.

Servers where attentive, food was excellent, and it was easy to enjoy our meal in the quiet, low-light environment.

Though I was just enjoying the dine-in experience with my brother, I would highly recommend Rasa for a romantic night out as well!

First time at this restaurant, and I wasn't sure what to expect. It beat both my husband's and my expectations! Beautiful place and decor. Great ambience. Varied menu. Everything was perfect, to be honest. We ordered the onion appetizer, along with the stuffed bread...sorry, can't remember the names of the dishes. For the main course, my husband had the lamb (kind of a lamb stew in a red sauce/second item on the dinner menu, I believe). He said it was excellent. I was almost stuffed from the appetizers, so I just ordered a chicken appetizer for my main. I wish I could remember the name;. It was delish! Oh, and we had a bottle of wine! The meal was soooo good I'd order the exact same thing again--except that I want to try something different so I won't! We will definitely be back!

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.

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.
