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 did not attend it. This was a business meeting for faculty and the candidate. They said everything was wonderful however the live music is not great when you're interviewing.

I'm not easily impressed by restaurants but I must say that this was by far one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in Toronto. The food is incredible, the value you get from the set menu for $40 is unreal and the staff are fantastic. Overall a great dinning experience and have already recommended the restaurant to some friends. We will definitely be back to dine again

Our second visit to Rasa was a fantastic experience. Service was warm and friendly, the pacing and timing between dishes was perfect and the food was delicious. We loved the Brussels sprouts and we hope it becomes a permanent addition to the menu.

The restaurant is small and not that comfortable.. The seating and tables could do with an upgrade...that said, I must admit I am a senior... The young people who frequent this place obviously do not mind.. We were greeted so warmly and immediately given a birthday drink on the house.. Our server was awesome. She explained their format of Tapas sharing food, and I must admit we were full on the four items we shared. Each dish was delicious.. I would highly recommend Rasa Restaurant...

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.
