Be warned that a single order of any biryani could feed 2-3 persons. The staff with poor English do not warn you about the serving size so new customers end up ordering a meal for each person. When it arrives it could feed an entire village! The prices are too high and does not reflect in the quality of food.... More

We love Indian food in its entirety but this place has an Asian charm from its silver and copper dinnerware to its private curtained seating areas. Sometimes the staff used to wear turbans and authentic Indian wear but now I realized they only wear Kurtas. The Naan here is divine with the Aloo Gobi, chicken vindaloo , lamb Rosht ,and... More

We hadn't been to Rasam in years but decided to try it one day for dinner when we had some family come in to visit. We were really impressed with the quality of the food (which was even better than we remembered) as well as the service. The decor is quite nice, especially for such a small space and the... More

Very nice decor and an attentive and knowledgeable waiter named Boye. We ordered Pumpkin Soup (excellently spiced and very tasty) and two vegetarian dishes (a paneer dish and a mixed vegetable dish) both of which were tasty. We got basmati rice, garlic Naan, Makhani (butter) Naan too. Having seen the prices on the menu at Apsara, I was pleasantly surprised... More

The service has improved greatly I must commend the staff as I usually frequent this establishment. The food is amazing.

Had lunch here. The restaurant ambiance is conducive to a relaxing meal. Indian themed music and decor. Was seated in a little booth even though the restaurant was nearly empty. Fast turn around on pre-meal drinks Highly recommend the garlic naan - it was warm and good. Menu is continental Indian - lots of coconut. Meat and Vegetarian options were... More

The extensive menu has excellent choices for everyone. Whilst there are the standard Lamb, Chicken and Seafood options, there is also an extensive vegetarian selection. Their Naans are very good. Their service was excellent.

I dropped in without a reservation on a Saturday evening during "Restaurant Week" and was quickly given a table. Friday and Saturday are buffet nights, and this night the buffet had lots of variety, several authentic East Indian dishes, all very tasty and not overly spicy hot, and with many vegetarian choices, though the buffet Desserts were unremarkable. There is... More

Went for my birthday lunch. Had been meaning to go for a while, but finally decided to try it out. Did not disappoint. Portion sizes were good. Loved the presentation of the food - they arrived in little dishes, with some being heated with wood chips (?). Very lovely place. Will definitely go back.
