Best all around meal we’ve had in recent memory. Excellent Indian cuisine. By far the best we’ve ever eaten. The experience was made even better by Chef GG making several appearances at the table to assist us with selections on and off of the menu. He’s clearly passionate about the food he prepares. Thanks for a spectacular experience.

We went to Raas to celebrate my husband’s birthday and it was a perfect evening out. The chef came by to discuss the menu and offer suggestions, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was relaxing. Looking forward to our next visit!

We had a wonderful ladies night out. Every staff member we encountered was fantastic from the hostess to the waiter and the owner who came out to check on our table. Food was delicious, and they were helpful and accommodating to individuals who were gluten free and new to Indian cuisine. I highly recommend and hope to go again soon with my family.

This was our first visit and it was wonderful that chef GG came to the table to walk us through his menu. Tried 3 small plates and 3 entrees along with Garlic Naan. Standouts were Tempura Shrimp and Tandoori Salmon. Lamb shank might have braised a little longer and pork tenderloin was a little chewy for my elder father. Got to sample both Chicken Tika Masala and Dal and both were delicious. Looking forward to a return visit for some Thai options. Definitely happy that restaurant is now open.

Special Valentine dining experience. Service was slow to the point after 20 minutes we had to ask for service. Food was inconsistently delivered with a table next to us who entered late was served appetizers before our delivery. One fish course was inconsistently prepared with one of three items overcooked. Chicken chorus all pieces were over cooked try and dry as a result. Spicy cauliflower should have had yogurt on the side of something. Traditional Indian naan bread would have been an additional cost for an already $75 per person plating. Then you was largely without explanation. Dessert was okay. Would not recommend

We look forward to the next time we are able to dine at RAAS! The food was delicious. How does Chef GG make cauliflower taste so marvelous! The spices he uses and the flavors he creates are amazing. My husband had his favorite meal Rogan Josh....and he was delighted. We appreciate the attention Chef GG and his lovely wife gave to us. They made us feel so special and honored. It was probably the very best dining experience we have ever had!

A stylish renovation of a Victorian house is a charming venue for this newcomer to the Lewes dining scene. The open layout of the dining room and bar is a welcome change to the small rooms usually found in similar structures. The menu has a variety of traditional Indian and Asian staples along with a few specialties of the house. Our appetizers and main courses were well portioned and spiced just right for an American palate. Prices are moderately high compared with similar venues.

This was our initial trip to Raas, as it just recently opened. The food and service were both excellent. The house that the restaurant is in was renovated prior to the opening, and they did a wonderful job. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner - the spicy shrimp appetizer and the pork entree. The rose petal ice cream was so good. I will be returning to try both the lunch and happy hour menus.

First time diners... Lucas was our server and seemed very knowledgable about the menu. We took his suggestions for items on the menu and all were great! The Kurkuri Bhindi was delicious, along with GG's Dum Biryani (Chicken) and a Tikka Beef small plate that was so flavorful! All of our dishes were full of flavor and just the right amount of spice! The cocktails were also extremely tasty and varied- nice selection and different from the usual! Dessert did not disappoint either- with Rose Petal ice cream and strawberry cheesecake topping our list! While Indian food has not been a staple of our dining experiences, we will definitely come back to RAAS. Great experience!

The food was excellent. Had the garlic naan (to die for) and the crispy okra for the table. Lamb rogan josh, chicken biryani and duck breast (an special that night) were all very good. Only issue was the 10- 15 minute wait between ordering our cocktails--a scotch on the rocks and 2 martinis--and getting them. The issue may have been the 6 person table next to us who appeared to have ordered speciality drinks that took a lot of preparation but the bartender (sole bartender) should have prioritized the simpler drinks over those taking a lot of preparation time. But I would definitely eat there again.

Food was amazing. The flavors, the lighter touch, the spice. Even the portion size was great. By far, the best Indian food in Delaware. The atmosphere was very good. Love the modern, open design and decor. A bit noisy but expected for a completely full restaurant. A bit pricey but happy to pay it for the quality. The waiter: he’s got to go! Brusque-antsy-rushed personality does not make for an enjoyable experience
