We go here as a group in March when attending a show at Ali Pali and we all look forward to the meal and are never disappointed. Best Indian food I have eaten in the UK

Go here and enjoy. The food is beautiful, atmosphere buzzy, and service humble and attentive. The dishes were subtly spiced, fresh and varied. The menu is full of amazing dishes, I already want to to back to try more. We shared a vegetarian, lamb, and seafood curry all which I would go out of my way to have again. The... More

The food was good again but when in an empty restaurant the waiter is surly, pressures us to order then eat and finally just brings the bill without us asking it leaves a bad taste. Such a contrast with Rasa over the road too...

A first visit to this outpost of the Rasa empire and it did not disappoint! The Kerala Fish Fry - "Kingfish marinated in a spicy paste made of ginger, green chillies and coriander, then shallow fried in traditional fashion" - to start with, and then Nadan Kozhy Curry - "Cubes of boneless chicken cooked in a lovely pepper masala made...

I have eaten at Rasa Travancore on several occasions and I have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. The Keralan menu offers dishes which aren't available at most Indian restaurants and I enjoy the chance to try something new when I eat there. Highly recommended.

We are regular customers of this fine spot on Chuch Street and by all means it's never disappointing. The staff is very welcoming and friendly and the food almost as good as the other Rasa.

We were recommended to try this restaurant recently. I was put off by the pink decor but decided to try a meal there anyway. The food was middle of the road in quality, but we have had much better Indian food at other restaurants. Generally the restaurant was a bit grubby and I thought it could have been cleaner. Would...

Nothing like Rasa vegetarian used to be. Dull food, starters as if from an Aldi frozen party pack, mains swimming in weak sauce - and this was the "feast". Slow service. And if you wonder why there is no food hygiene scores on the door sign - it's because it only scores 2 out of 5 (look it up on... More

My dad and I were hoping to go to the rasa vegetarian restaurant. I've always had amazing food and service there. Unfortunately it was fully booked so we thought we would try rasa travancore instead. We ordered two curries, two rice, bread and two lassie. When the food arrived I noticed they had forgotten the bread. We reminded the waiter... More

I'm really surprised this place has reviewed so poorly as I found it be really unusual and wonderful. The cooking was so authentic and the service was charming and attentive. The price was very reasonable and the presentation a pleasant change from the tinny balti dishes we all know. One of the best meals I've had for ages.
