Rasa Malaysian & South Indian Restaurant in upper Cuba Street (Wellington) offers the very best of South Indian and Malaysian cuisine.
In addition Rasa offers a variety of delicious contemporary Malay and Indian dishes.

David Burton of the Dominion Post says: "I've twice listed Rasa's masala dosa among Wellington's top 10 dishes...Rasa has always been, and remains, one of those uproariously busy little ethnic cafes which captures the soul of the Cuba Quarter. It seats only 45, so you are often lucky to get a table...However, at Rasa they'll take your cellphone number and suggest you go somewhere for a drink and they'll call you when the next table is ready...As with any successful eatery, the food is good, but that's only part of the story: with its bright red and turmeric paint scheme, its cool Parisian cafe tables and its bicycle with tiffin carrier whimsically strapped to the wall, the Rasa interior has the panache..." - 12 Aug 2012
