Rasa, Stoke Newington

I rocked into here last night. It may have been a Tuesday night but it was still busy and the smell when walking in was delicious.
They have a thing on the menu that they call a feast (for Â£16 per person at time of writing). I ordered this thinking I would get a thali. I liked that I was invited to ask if I had any favourites that I would like included.
The starter was a potato bonda, a kathrika (aubergine) and while I don't the name, it was like a banana fritter.
Next was a bunch of nibbles of crisps, poppadoms and other things like that followed by the main course. There were 3 dishes and immediately it was obvious I had over ordered. This was far to much for one person and I was wondering if they felt I was so thin that I needed feeding up or the like. I had a go at it but with there being bread and rice included, I ended up leaving more than I ate. It seems a but of a waste to say the least as I was given enough food to comfortably feed 3 people.
I liked the fact that when I asked for vegan friendly food the waiter was clearly knowledgeable. Indeed the service was fine and my only regret was that I ordered so much, I wasn't able to appreciate the food properly.
I'd be more than happy to try here again.
Vegan vego friendly, Nice atmo & service
Feast for 1 is too big
