MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

In a bustling tech corridor that's also home to Indian expats with high culinary standards, Rasa has managed to find the perfect middle ground. No-joke dishes that aren't toned down for Western palates cater to both software execs and date-night couples, and though the bi-level space boasts a sleek, minimalist-mod décor with bright splashes of orange, stylish pendant lights and dark wood fittings, the focus here is on the food.

The ramped-up South Indian cuisine draws added elegance from superb ingredients. The spice of the delicious chutney prawn is countered by cool thinly shaved cucumber, while the golden-brown pumpkin kofta served atop a fenugreek curry is deliciously refined. The dosas are appropriately paper-thin and shatteringly crisp, while uttapams topped with peppers and ground masala lamb are earthy and delicate—but watch out for the punch from the accompanying ghost pepper chutney.

A serious spread could be made just out of Rasa’s excellent small plates, but for bigger appetites, the flaky white fish moilee, stewed in a creamy coconut curry, is rich and satisfying. No one should skip the cardamom brûlée for dessert: equal parts bread pudding and crème brûlée, it’s dizzyingly delicious.
