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.

Rasa is definitely going to be a spot my wife and I go back to very soon! From start to finish, they provided top notch service and the food was absolutely perfect. I booked reservations for our anniversary and we did the tasting menu, which was extremely well done! All the meals were unique and different, there wasn’t a single dish that we didn’t love! The presentation and taste exceeded our expectations. Our server, Clare, was so great! To be honest, there wasn't a single person working that walked by our table and didn’t stop in to see how our meal was or check on our experience. It was truly a team effort and they made the experience all that much better! They ended up wrapping up our sticky bun, which made for an amazing breakfast treat. Rasa was excellent and I will be recommending to anyone looking for a great experience with absolutely amazing food!

Excellent food as always. The Ceviche is one of their stand out dishes, along with the fresh,crunchy delicious chopped salad. This time we tried the duck confit and it was a good Fall addition to the menu. The service is friendly and informed.

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.

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.

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.
