Beautiful meal again at Rasam. We had the mix platter and the jumbo chargrilled prawns and shared them between us, so tasty. I had Dum Pukht Gosht lamb dish for main. Their signature dish, it was truly stunning. Bottle of house red to help the food on its way. Offered a free drink when paying the bill which is always... More

This is definitely among the best Indian cuisine restaurants in Dublin. The menu is divided into areas of India, so one gets to pick and choose tastes of different areas of this huge country. Very tasty food, very good presentation. The service couldn't be any better, surpassing expectations. If you manage to get a private booth it feels extra special.... More

Rasam does not depend on my review, but I would like to say how much we all enjoyed our recent visit there...sometimes it's not entirely about the food alone, which was very delicious, as always, but about the complete package. As it happens, the restaurant had just been reviewed professionally. When the staff uniforms are the only issue & mostly... More

As usual food, people, service was beyond excellent. A difficult place to leave, home from home. Cannot say a bad word about Rasam, may it be around for ever.

I had the pleasure and privilege on Saturday night last, of celebrating my 40th birthday, with my wonderfully crazy family, in Rasam. To say that we were impressed would be a total understatement. The food was just outstanding. My vegan needs were more than cared for (In fact, it was the best vegan food I have ever eaten and that... More

Another lovely evening spent in my beautiful "home from home"...having lived and worked for a couple of months in India, it always feels like a homecoming, as soon as I enter Rasam, and meet Nisheeth and his ever friendly staff. You can wear a saree and eat with your hands ("the Indian way"...), they wouldn't mind at all! Rasam is... More

The Rasam: a clockwork, running precise day after day, week after week, year after year - a place coming home to year after year, since 2007, when we discovered it. The Rasam: a place to relax, to enjoy, to dream, to experience, to forget, to look at, to feel - the people, the food, the art of serving, the art... More

We have been coming to Rasam for years and each time we visit ( last one was March ) it just seems to get better and better. The restaurant has had a refresh inside and looks better for it; service is always excellent with a number of the team remembering regulars. We visited on a Tuesday evening and found the... More

We spent a few days in Dublin visiting friends. They recommended we eat in the Ramas. Having looked at the reviews I thought this may be worth the visit This proved to be a great choice this is by far the best Indian restuarant we have eaten in The quality of the food was exceptional. The spicing of the food... More
