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.

Food was fantastic and service! Only negative comment relates to water. Please think about providing jugs/or bottles cos we experienced empty glasses from time to time !

This restaurant was so sweet. A couple of months ago, this restaurant played along to a surprise bachelorette party even though they knew we were not going to dine there. I’m so glad we came here to eat out in the end and there wasn’t a single dish we didn’t like. The concept of east meets west flavours was impeccable. Our favourite was the bbq shrimp.

We were celebrating my sister's birthday and staff kindly placed at the back table on the patio where it was very quiet. The staff were very pleasant and prompt with their service. We especially like how we got to meet several staff as different ones brought different dishes. The food was all great and the creme brule dessert was outstanding. Thanks for recognizing my sister's birthday with a small gift!

We couldn’t have enjoyed our experience more. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the food was amazing. We especially loved the Brussels sprouts, the shrimp, the mushroom dumplings, and the chopped salad!

Our server helped us determine portions for our share plates, was very knowledgeable on dishes, was very warm, and thoughtful when ending our meal with a digestif on the house; servers assistants were efficient and ensured cleanliness of table; food was incredible and and plated in high-quality manner; overall atmosphere was casual, welcoming, intimate and great for any occasion.

My fiancé and I have come to your restaurant a few times, every time the food is amazing and the service is even better. We are always treated well, and the people have such a close eye to detail that it always makes the experience amazing. We consider this our favourite restaurant in the city, and always look forward to coming. Thank you Stephanie

enjoyed everything - our server (whose name we forgot to ask) was a real plus, charming and helpful with just the right amount of attention, and food was good and imaginative. Price of wine - punitive as in the US, rather than reasonable as in France - was disappointing.

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.
