Rasa: Flavours of India
Rasa is probably the best Indian restaurant in Halifax .
They offer a good selection of Indian dishes, including vegetarian options, and the service is very good and polite. We really loved a our curry dishes that were spiced according to our wishes. Also, the raita was very good and generous. The filled chicken was not much given the price and the basket of Indian bread was only ok.
We will certainly come again and are glad that Halifax has now a decent Indian restaurant.
Frankly, it was great. We had their New Year's Eve special (an option to have a series of samples from each of the entrees, sides appetizers and desserts). Each one was prepared wonderfully. It was a great balance of spiciness without overwhelming the taste of each dish. The meats were wonderfully juicy and tender.
Our waiter was attentive and gave great recommendations which we happily followed. Perhaps the only slight critique was that he was a little bit soft spoken and his voice was sometimes lost in the table next to us which was an extended family with multiple young children.
We will be going back and recommending to others.
Food was normal. I expected differently. But the service was good.
We were nit disappointed with the wonderful welcome, excellent service and superbly cooked food! Rasa is by far the best and most authentic Indian cuisine east of Toronto!
And with their newly opened Sura Lounge and bar, the combination is great for both casual and fine dining! With awesome cocktails to try.
Prompt and friendly service. Delicious food and generous portions. Can’t wait to return!
lovely food. Very nice atmosphere and food very tasty.
Best Indian Food I have ever had in North America. Great Food. Service was good. Friendly. Wine list needs improving. Very limited, and cocktails. Would be nice if the alcohol was a bit more extensive. My margarita, was not good. But the food. Fabulous. Can’t wait to go back
Delicious food,great ambience,great service,enjoyable
Great food, great experience. Loved the idea of sharing the plates. Would recommend it.
Good good good
This is the second time I have eaten here and it was just as wonderful as the first!
Courteous staff. Neat and contemporary ambience.
Food was flavorful and delicious. Service was lacking. Some items are overpriced.
Fabulous restaurant. The food was amazing, service exceptional and very reasonable cost wise. They also do home delivery (good to know, however our preference is to eat at the restaurant). Would return again in a heart beat!!
This was my first time at Rasa. I've wanted to go for awhile but never had the chance.
My husband and I went for our 25th Anniversary. It was delicious. The atmosphere was really nice, it wasn't noisy, the service was great. We will never be able to eat store-bought naan bread again.
We are already planning our next visit.
Very good indian resto! 👍👍👍👍👍
Rasa is one of the three best Indian restaurants we have enjoyed since being introduced to Indian food in 1991. A maharaja would have given a thumbs up.
We had a lovely time! The food tasted amazing but it was the service that really stood out. Pam made our evening and was a total delight. Thanks for such a good evening, Rasa!
The food is consistently excellent. Diverse flavours in all vegetarian dishes I tried.The only Indian restaurant worth the visit in Halifax. Highly recommend the bread basket.
Every six weeks our book club gets together at a local restaurant . This time we decided to try Rasa as we had heard good reviews from our friends. It did not disappoint. I was greeted graciously. Our waiter was able to help us with our choices and make recommendations. We tried two vegetarian and two chicken. All were delicious and brought to us in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to try authentic Indian food.
The service is always amazing, the food always exceptional. The drinks are also very good, overall a very nice place. Highly recommend!
My partner and I were going to an art gallery presentation near Rasa so we made dinner reservations. We have visited Rasa several times before so we knew we were in for a good meal, well-prepared and perfectly served. We were not disappointed. I like spicy food and ordered chicken vindaloo; it may have been slightly less hot than I’ve previously had but still very good. My girlfriend likes her food milder than me and she had the butter chicken and it was prepared perfectly. She had a glass of wine; I - the driver this evening - had Indian tea. Naan bread and basmati rice rounded out the meal.
Absolutely one of the bests, friendly service, amazing clean home-made-y food that’s perfectly seasoned and aesthetically spot on as well, great healthy portion. We were warmly welcomed to neat and chic tables, and server had explained everything and helped with our experience. Garlic naan is a best-in-town. Mostly got chicken dishes but lamb would’ve been great and wanna try vegetarian too.
Our first visit, we will be back. Food was excellent and very authentic. Great job guys.
Have already decided to take 2 more friends as a treat. Food was superb
The food was really good, but a bit on the pricey side. Quantity of food is not clear, some plates are clearly shareable, but you can't tell by the menu.
Absolutely superb. Some of the best Indian food we have had in North America!
Fantatic food... quick service and the perfect place for a lunch time meeting. Can't say enough good things about it.
We cannot day enough about the quality of service food and environment we experienced at Rasa! Simply outstanding in all accounts
There are not many choices for Indian food in Halifax. This was our first visit to Rasa and we were very impressed. Service was impeccable, and the food: well spiced, beautifully prepared. We will be back!
The restaurant is on the corner of birmingham and Queen so parking can be a bit challenging - there is an underground lot at Queens Square close by.
Not the best. Seemed flat compared to my last visit. Food seemed a bit strange too. Prawn masala average but chicken korma was dull and bland. Sides lacked flavor. Service was good but once again children wandering around completely changed the vibe away from adult dinner spot to daycare.
Fantastic! The Dal Makhani was especially delicious as well as the garlic naan and roti. Service was great I will be going back and would recommend without hesitation.
This was a great spot for dinner. The dining room is very comfortable and well appointed. The staff was very attentive and the food delicious. We will be going back.
A variety of delicious flavorful Indian dishes including an excellent, but somewhat mild, lamb vinadaloo. The eggplant and okra dishes were well cooked with complex flavors, and excellent texture. Our table shared 8 dishes and entrees between a table of 5 and had the right amount of food.
The whole experience was really nice for us. The complimentary towels for hand washing prior to the meal as well as the appetizers made our meal feel special. The food was delicious and full of flavor and definitely left us feeling satisified.
The onion bhaji was well priced and a generous portion, it was delicious. $5 for one small cup of tea was overpriced though may be warranted if a refill was offered.
The entrees were a bit overpriced (given the amount of meat/fish in them), but probably priced accordingly for downtown dining establishment prices.
That said, food quality was excellent, as was the service. The online booking was convenient and worked well.
I am not able to eat here often due to the price, instead it is reserved for special occasions.
Excellent food. Attentive service. What a gem!
The food is simply delicious and the service is flawless.
Had 2 dishes, lamb vindaloo and butter chicken. Lamb was very good but chicken was just okay. Could have been more meat in both dishes. Good flavour but small portions.
