Great service and even better food. Already went there twice in the last 5 days, the masala kulcha is to die for. Say hello to Mr.Senthil and Mr.Ajeesh who will greet you with a smile and will help you choose from the extensive menu.

I visited Ras twice in my recent stay in Singapore. The service was excellent particularly Mr Ajesh who remembered what I had in their restaurant in my earlier visit. The food was good. Would surely recommend this placeMore

I agree with other reviewers. The food is good, but very expensive. I was also overcharged: S$52 for drinks we did not order or receive. I have emailed the restauarant, but no response yet.
