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.

Service was amazing from the hostess being very accommodating that we were late to our reservation, to the many people that serviced us through our quick meal. The detail and explanation of each item was great. We choose this place for our anniversary because we had heard great things and although it was very hard to get a reservation and our dinner had to be quick because our babysitter showed up late, it was worth it and we would return!

A friend recommended Rasa and all 4 of us were blown away by everything from the start of the service, the exquisite food, to the selection of bubbles of wine. We all went with "the experience" and what an experience it was! The food kept coming out and every dish was the best u til the next. Highly recommend this place and I will definitely be going back! Thank you Rasa team.

This has been my number one choice in restaurants over the last year plus. Never fails to amaze me with its new creations and the standards, especially the salad. This time the lamb and fried chicken were outstanding. Always worth the trip to Rasa. Has never disappointed.

Food was amazing! I will come back and have the tasting menu again. Great value for money. Service was okay. Our waitress gave us less attention as the meal went on. We waited a while to pay and it was another waitress that noticed and came by.

I want to thank Rasa so much for getting a ramp so that my girlfriends and I could celebrate her bachelorette! Thank you as well for trying to make the staff washroom work for me. It would be great to have a larger washroom in the future, when possible so that we can close the door. :)

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.
