Rashnaa Restaurant

Rashnaa is a cozy restaurant specializing in South Indian and Sri Lankan food in a converted house at 307 Wellesley St East at Parliament. 

Having had some great Sri Lankan food at Hopper's Hut in Scarborough, I was thinking this would be similar, but I was in for a surprise. The eggs kothu roti is made from chopped, sauteed pieces of naan bread with veggies. It didn't rival Hopper's Hut's, but was still very good.

The string hopper kothu is similar, but it's made from chopped rice flour noodles. 

This fast-moving lassi was a hit.
We ordered from the Sri Lankan section of the menu. This is the eggs kothu rotty combo, with vegetables and chicken. The chicken was tender with a nice curry sauce. 

This is the string hopper kothu combo (veg and beef).The beef was very chewy but came in a marvelous spicy curry sauce. The veggie dish that accompanied was also quite good.
