The menu here consists of Italian, Mediterranean and Indian dishes. The wood-fried pizzas are something that shouldn’t be skipped. For all the cheese lovers, Raasta Café has a melting pot of cheese fondue with bread croutons. Keeping aside the regular assortment of pasta, the Kheema Pao and a variety of chicken and lamb kebabs surely do deserve the attention of your taste buds.
If you are sitting on the high chairs on the side then you are blessed with the view of an entire city along with the setting sun. The walls are painted with some colourful and interesting art. With this restaurant, there is a unique feature of having cabanas to enjoy the place and have some privacy. There is also an occasional musician playing live music to enhance the experience of being at this café.
Be it cocktails or mocktails, there is a perfect concoction for everyone. There is a wide selection of spirits mixed to make some of the most exotic martinis, daiquiris, margaritas and shooters. The Orange Basil Mojito is one drink that should be savoured on. There is also a long list of shakes and smoothies to try. The honey and fig shake is a great blend to if you’re in for a creamy surprise.
The best way to round up a great meal is to end it with sumptuous desserts. The New York style baked cheesecake with fresh berries is a delight in every bite. This can be followed up with the special choco-walnut sizzling brownie or the red velvet jar. This café is one place where you can go just to enjoy the desserts and marvel on the rich texture.
