I have been a patron of Rasham for five years. I have consistently enjoyed the food and the family run style. Everything is made fresh. Nothing is frozen. The kebabs are delicious. The vegetable dishes are filling and tasty. The chicken entrees are always top notch. The rice pudding is magnificent. For lunch try a few samosas, a naan and a couple kebabs and you will be stuffed for less than $7. Yes, the food is not inexpensive but the time and quality deserves a fair price which it is and everyone is entitled to a fair wage. It takes time to prepare fresh food so don't go there in a rush or you will be frustrated. There is no alcohol due to religious beliefs so respect that value.

You do not eat there for the atmosphere which is spartan. If you cannot tolerate VERY spicy food the place is not for you. If you expect to be fawned over, don't go, but if you are friendly and honest you will find a family that is humble, reserved and always dedicated to quality.

I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in Paris, Rome, London and in this country. I have been more disappointed in some of the "best" and thus I try to be objective in reviewing any eatery. The American palate has morphed towards uniformity and dullness and quantity not quality. Rasham is quality and family and to me it doesn't get any better than that.

This place mostly serves frozen foods including naan and samosa which we believe comes from the next door grocery store, never had such a bad naan in any restaurant. They did not serve any chutneys also to go with the samosas. However, their kebabs are real good and worth trying. If we go next time, it will be only for the kebabs, nothing else.

If you like Indian/Pakistani food, you're in for a treat. The food is simply awesome and the staff is friendly. Not the greatest of ambiences but who cares if the food is great!

We have taken out from here a couple of times, and have been happy. It is convenient for us, which is great (it isn't much to look at from the outside, but I wouldn't let that deter you). The service has been very good and the food is good. This is a Pakistani restaurant, but the food closely resembles Indian food. If you like Indian food, you should like this. We haven't dined in so I can't comment on that.
The value is ok. I think you get a reasonable but not generous portion for the price, and if you don't ask for rice, you won't get it when you order an entree.
If you are nearby and want takeout, I can recommend this.
