Meet the owner

It’s barely 6 pm and Rasa is already slammed. “Our customers are always such an eclectic mix of people,” says co-owner Adam Minster before turning to discuss the night’s cocktail options with a couple of older ladies who recently pulled up to the bar.

“We’re regulars,” explains one of the women. “This is our local, we come here a few times a week and we love it – the menu changes often, so we never get bored,” she says while tucking into the fish board. The board features a trio of fish prepared in different ways. Tonight’s triplet is a caprese albacore tuna with tomato confit and basil sauce, a jerked steelhead trout with apple relish and plantain chips, and the final pescatarian delight: smoked branzino with dill crème fraiche, orange caviar and mustard chips.

Would highly recommend this restaurant. We tried the "experince" dinner. It was well worth ordering and enjoyed the dinner dishes...all of which were great. Staff were very informative and helpful. Service was timed perfectly for the "experience" dinner and made the evening quite enjoyable.

I would have given this all 5 stars but I rang ahead and requested that for dessert, my fiancee have something done as it was her birthday. I was assured this would happen but nothing did. It was a slight disappointment to an otherwise fantastic meal. We will be going again.

As always, awesome! Nothing beats their chopped salad and burger. Others had the truffle nudi and the chicken. All equally divine. Don't even get me started on the cocktails! we all loved them! If you like gin go for the Mary, Declan if you like Tequila and David for vodka drinkers. Desserts - heaven. We had all three. I especially loved the passionfruit ice-cream and crunchy bar! YUMMY! Service amazing!

We had a lovely evening with friends. My boyfriend and I shared the chopped salad, the brussels sprouts, the lamb and the burger. Everything was delicious and very creatively prepared. We left extremely satisfied. We are from Montreal and we go to restaurants quite a lot so our level of expectations is pretty high. Thank you Rasa.

Everything about our experience was amazing! The only dish we didn't eat every last morsel of was the beet dish, but neither of us like beets, so it could just be us. The burger and sticky bun were especially tasty and that's saying a lot, since I'm not a big dessert eater. Overall, it was wonderful and we'll definitely be back again!

We went to celebrate a girlfriend's birthday and it was perfect. The vibe is great, and despite different dietary restrictions, we were able to enjoy a tasting menu with lots of delicious vegetatian and meat options. I highly recommend sharing platters to maximize your options. Finally, the service was attentive and polite.

Get romanced at these tapas and cocktail spots in Toronto

Food Dudes, Toronto's gastronomers extraordinaire, took on yet another project in 2014, renovating a corner space to create the perfect balance of rustic and industrial-modern, with heavy wood panelling, parlour-esque tufted leather bar stools, bare Emerson light bulbs, exposed pipe and a whole lot of wrought iron. Warm and hunky – a little urban cabin at the corner of Harbord and Robert Street (just west of Spadina) – that’s the vibe you’ll get at Rasa. Eclectic food options that blend North American and Mediterranean cuisines include tzatziki-accompanied lamb neck, pork belly and green tomatoes, and Thai basil and coconut shrimp.
