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.

I feel confident dining there as they are so good about sticking to the Covid protocols and keeping their patrons safe... along with themselves. Love the outdoor patio, and with their heaters (1 for every table) I wouldn't hesitate to dine there well into the cooler season.

As always Rasa is super accommodating with dietary restrictions. I never feel like my restrictions/allergies are an inconvenience to their wait staff or the kitchen. Their service is attentive without being helicopter-y, and their food is amazing, even without dairy and gluten and NUTS. I have not dined in a restaurant in 6 months bc of COVID, but was totally willing to make the exception for Rasa. By far my favourite restaurant in the city.

Rasa remains one of our favourite restaurants for many reasons, but mainly the consisten quality and innovation of flavours in their dishes. the menu is broad, varied and inclusive. Service is always impeccable, low key and super friendly. It was our first foray back into dining out and it could not have been better. Safe distanced, timely and clean.

we came to Rasa for my partner's 30th birthday, and it was fantastic! The service was amazing and the environment felt very welcoming and safe. The food was incredible, and to top it all off the staff were very kind and brought us desert with a sparkler for the birthday! 100% would recommend it to everyone!

Rasa never disappoints! The food is consistently wonderful and creative. The attention to detail, especially under the circumstances that bring unusual challenges because of COVID, is undeniable! My guest and I both commented on the outstanding managing of Rasa. Table service, as always was outstanding - friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. Cannot wait to return.

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.
