About us

"We've been going to Rasam in Glasthule since it opened almost 20 years ago. It is the perfect blend of delicious exotic flavours and the kind of welcome you can only get from a truly local restaurant. This is Indian food of the highest order. Nisheeth and his staff will frequently suggest new dishes, new tastes to delight the palate. We are fortunate to have made this dining discovery at the very beginning and have shared it with many friends over the years. Long may Rasam prosper."

Our Restaurant

We opened our doors for business in November 2003 with the solid ambition to serve high quality authentic Indian cuisine in Dublin. 

Indian food has in recent years moved on from the “one sauce fits all” mantle to be instead recognised as a wonderfully diverse and complex tasting experience, reflecting all the amazing potent flavours of the continent. Rasam wanted to contribute to the Indian food awakening and so when a suitable premises came available in Glasthule in the heart of a busy Dublin suburb, Rasam, as it is today, was born.

The Rasam team will happily espouse the many virtues of their style of cooking, dedicated to balance and care of the body. Our staff come from many regions of India, each having extensive training and experience within the hospitality settings of India.

At Rasam, each guest is personally welcomed into our restaurant. We will always take great care that whether an expert or a novice Indian diner, and of course our much appreciated regulars, everyone experiences true Indian hospitality.

Our promise is that every guest on every occasion at Rasam will enjoy the best choice of dishes, the appropriate wines and a memorable restaurant experience with a unique and warm ambience.

We take immense pride in our spices, created to accentuate and compliment our range of dishes. We mix, roast and grind spices and herbs daily to create the diverse flavours that our patrons love to enjoy. We are committed to the use of the freshest ingredients down to our lemons that are freshly squeezed daily for maximum flavour.

We at Rasam are committed to maintaining and showcasing the wonderful authenticity of Indian cooking. If you would like to know a little bit more about us, visit any evening as we are open Monday to Saturday from 5:30 pm to 11:30 pm and Sundays from 5:00 pm until 10:30 pm.

Rasam is such a special gem of a restaurant, offering traditional Indian cuisine, in a relaxed atmosphere. Nisheeth and his crew always offers a warm welcome. It's such an asset to Glasthule. 5 Star for service, quality of food and attention to detail. It's worth a trip out, with the Dart train connection only 2 minutes away.

I dined in Rasam and it completely surpassed my expectations. The food was superb. The sharing platter starter was a great way to taste a few things. The butter chicken and the garlic naan were delicious. The staff were so lovely and perfectly attentive. Would highly recommend.
