My family and I came here for my mom's birthday and it was such a wonderful experience! It is very spacious so you don't have to worry about being on top of each other. The quality of food is superb and wonderful service! Lamb chops were very tender a must try if you like lamb. They have something for everyone. We will be back!

We have eaten at Raasa many times. It is our go to Indian in Westchester. Food is consistently good and interesting, really something for everyone if you like Indian. They have a nice wine and beer list too. This Saturday night the service was quite slow which didn’t bother us as we were not in the hurry. Good to see them busy but on busy nights one more server would be a big help. We’ll definitely be back again.

Lovely owners - great food – If you love Indian food and want to have a great meal go on a Monday or Tuesday- it’s very slow on those nights, so there’s nobody sitting around you and you can feel very safe! The owners here are really trying to make a go of it during this crisis so let’s support them! please go eat at their restaurant so we can keep the best Indian food restaurant in the area going!

Not only is this restaurant bright and airy, has fabulous food, and fabulous owners but they have gone out of their way to make sure the tables are far enough apart and people are seated far enough apart and it’s very easy for social distancing!!! Finally a restaurant that takes this situation seriously!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!! :)

Raasa always delivers! Headed by owners Asch & Pree, Raasa's food is always super fresh, creative & tasty. Asch & Pree always stop by guest's table to interact - they are welcoming & professional. Mike was our server - he provided excellent service & was very attentive.

Thank you to the Raasa team for another great meal!

This was my first time at Rasa and it definitely will not be my last. The food, service, ambience, cocktails...I just loved everything about it! I had the keema samosas and the semunder se. The spices were perfect and the food was amazing!

The best part was that the staff was so kind and caring - server, bartender, house manager, and everyone. It was an excellent experience and I've not experienced that in a long time. It's truly a hidden gem and I'll definitely be back for more treasure. ❣❤❣

My group of 3 had no complaints. The restaurant was very accessible to all. Everyone was pleased with their meal. We had a vegetarian dish, goat dish and a chicken dish and chat for appetizers before hand. I had not had chat before.

We have been to Raasa a number of times and are never disappointed. Their menu contains many standard Indian favorites, but there are some one-off dishes I haven't seen elsewhere and everything is excellent. If it says "spicy or hot" it will have a little heat, but most spicing is moderate and you can ask for the level of spice you are comfortable with. Their dishes are all freshly prepared, with interesting subtle flavors and generous portions. In our most recent visit, we were a party of 6 and we shared three starters, 3 meat main dishes and 2 vegetarian dishes plus nan and everyone had plenty of food. We do tend to make reservations, as it can be busy especially on weekends and they always have a table ready for us. Service isn't the speediest, especially if they are busy but the wait staff is always polite and competent and haven't gotten our order wrong yet. We're so glad this place is local for us, they have ample parking and right on Rt 119 in Elmsford it's easy to reach.
