Have dined in Rasam many, many times—but have never had a takeaway before today. Delighted to report that the food and service were as fantastic as they always are. The duck rolls were divine, the lamb was delicious—all went well with a nice Chianti. Well...done to Nisheeth and staff for keeping up very high standards at this difficult time—and glad to see they’re being kept busy. We went in to restaurant to order, but most people seemed to be phoning in and then either having food brought to them in their car, or dropping in to collect. Will be back very soon!More

Due to Covid, this was a take away instead of an in house dinner. We ordered by phone and were told it would be ready in 45 minutes. And indeed it was ready and waiting for us. It was well packaged. Most importantly, they offer...Indian meals that are a little different from the standard menu. And the taste was great.More

Went for dinner on Saturday arrived at 8.15 and was given a choice of tables the restaurant was quite busy but we settled on a booth beside the window. Since COVID the tables are all social distanced and all have perspex screens separating the tables...and plenty of available space. Our server was very professional and we sought her advise on a wine from the Czech Republic and it was good. We Had the Pork and chicken to start the Pork was really delicious. Our server recommended the Chicken with peppers and it was delicious. We had no room for desert but had a couple of very well made Irish coffees a wonderful meal in a very comfortable and modern Indian restaurant . This is well worth a visit and look forward to our return visitMore

I visited Rasam for the first time this weekend, and I was not left disappointed. The menu was not the standard Indian restaurant in Ireland fare, from appetiser to dessert, the choices were interesting and authentic. I would highly recommend the vegetarian thali as a...great way to try multiple dishes. The service was also excellent, and all staff members were enthusiastic and friendly.More

I've been to Rasam in person once and had takeaway now a couple of times and each time it's been delicious. It is a bit of an expense but, the food is so lovely, it's warranted. I can't get away from the mango prawns as...they're too delicious to pass up any time we get food from Rasam and the naan is equally as lovely. Of course the in dining experience is even better when those times come back around to us!More

We’ve ordered a takeaway from Rasam yesterday. I was very much looking forward to it, given all the rave reviews and a great experience I had myself when I had a meal there last year. Alas, it was a bit underwhelming. Our starters (calamari for...me and pork chilly fry for my husband) were great. But the mains (Badami Murgh and Chettinad Chicken) were lacking in richness and texture. The sauce was too liquidy and fat bubbles were flowing on top. Maybe I’m wrong but I was expecting a lot more flavours, and creaminess/thickness that leaves you full at the end. I was hoping for some leftovers too, but that’s less disappointing. For 55 euro bill (with discount!) I expected better.More

Sorry Niamh, it is a restaurant, not a hotel, so no pool.
