The Queen Anne Victorian at 210 Savannah Road in Lewes, DE has stood tall for over 100 years. Built in 1899, Captain W. “Diver” Johnston at the age of 52 collaborated with his business partner (William H. Virden) to build a beautiful new house for him and his wife, Isabella. Records indicate that he paid $400 for the entire lot, one of the most prominent sites in downtown Lewes.Over the next 100 years, the Victorian structure built in the style of Eastlake, an English architect, served as a home for many families, including longtime Lewes Mayor, Otis Smith.

The team at Raas is proud to continue the story of the Queen Anne Victorian. Each chapter of the building’s history has added to its charm and we at Raas are excited for its next chapter.

CELEBRATION OF FOOD & CULTURE

Our team’s interpretation of the word "Raas" is a celebration of food and culture while showcasing the medicinal value of Indian cuisine.

    This was our first time at Raas. We were curious; the two of us have eaten at other Indian-cuisine restaurants and wanted to be more familiar with similar enterprises in our area. The ambiance is modernized Victorian, with occasional pieces of wall art featuring Asian themes. Service was excellent; the owner/chef also spoke with us and assisted us in our selections. All this was very gracious and professional. The food is overall excellent and worth trying. If you are looking for the "traditional" flavors and styles one would find in US-based Indian restaurants, you would likely not be fully satisfied, as there are little twists here and there and sometimes rather major breaks from this tradition. Again, however, overall the food is expertly prepared. My partner found her main dish not quite as fully cooked as she would have liked; for me it was fine. Vegetable samosas were agreeable but not notable. We also experienced the thali plate, which featured samples of several items. Rogan Josh was excellent, as was the swordfish. The paneer in the spinach dish was nicely pre-fried for a pleasant coating. The major qualifier is the cost. Ours was a quiet ambitious meal, but I'm generally not accustomed to paying at this level for Indian food.

    This was our third time at Raas. It was quiet there tonight. We had the honor of spending time chatting with the Chef/Owner “GG”. What a great person! So interesting. So accommodating. So caring. He took special care of a couple at another table. Tailoring the food to their likings. He took time to chat with us & then treated us to a trio of desserts! We were very impressed.

    Food is delicious, service is great. Good vegan or vegetarian options, and good options for meat eaters too. Food is so good we get an extra entree to take home for the next day every time we go. My kid devoured his butter chicken and did a little dance when our naan arrived.

    We had a fabulous meal at Rass! The menu is so interesting with so many novel choices. As a vegetarian, I was particularly pleased with having 5-6 options both in the appetizer and main sections of the menu. This just never happens. My husband is not a vegetarian, and he also had trouble selecting what to order from among so many interesting choices. Both of our dishes were plentiful, filled with flavor, and cooked to perfection. The side of naan came was toasty with just the right amount of crispy and also very flavorful. It was my husband's birthday and dessert arrived with a small candle. I had not requested this; they just noticed our small celebration on the Open Table website. In addition, we were given a gratis pour of a lovey Spanish wine that paired beautifully with the dessert mousse. We required a special accommodation to eat outside as my husband is immunocompromised. When the weather turned cold and windy, I was concerned that outdoor eating would be unavailable. Despite the conditions, the staff at Naan was prepared to wait on us outside, but they also offered us seating in an inside side room and promised to seat all other tables in the main area. It was not a bustling night, so it was not injurious to their business to offer this accommodation, but it was more difficult for the staff to keep track of us which they did so sublimely. We have not been able to eat at a restaurant since about October of last year due chilly weather, and this was our first indoor dining experience in 4 years. Having the room to ourselves felt safe and extra romantic. During our meal, the staff had no idea what a special event this was for us, but I am hoping that they read this and learn how meaningful this wonderful accommodation was for us. It was a 5 star evening!

    This is an amazing restaurant for dinner. Worth the price for some of the best cuisine around, never mind simply “Indian food.” However, on this occasion we tried their afternoon tea, which we found uninspiring. Perhaps this is a relatively new thing for the restaurant and they’re still getting their footing, fine. But I was disappointed with both the lack of tea selection for a high tea and the food, especially for the high price point. Only one “herbal” tea, their Chai (which was good) and coffee items. Some of the items on the tower were far better than others (most of the veggie tier for instance were quite good, but the fried hard boiled egg needs some rethinking or an appropriate sauce, for instance). There was a surprising amount of fried foods for this too. But the big disappointment was the top of the tier, the desserts. For a place that does wonderful desserts for after dinner (both the traditional Indian ones and their creative ones like their delicious take on bread pudding), this was extremely disappointing: an array of (at best) Costco or grocery store mini desserts. If you’re not going to go through the effort of making the petite-fours etc, then it would be better to perhaps just present one of your regular desserts at the top tier. I will certainly be back for dinner. Afternoon tea? It may be a while.

Grateful to have such wonderful Indian food in our local community. The hardest part will be waiting through their winter break to enjoy their delectable garlic & cheese naan again.

    We thought the food was incredible. The server answered all of our questions about the level of spiciness we had. She did take a while to refill our water glasses which we needed with spicy food. The room was very noisy. We had to almost shout to hear each other. We would go back but would ask to sit in the front room which looked less crowded and noisy.

    Our server, Curtis, did a great job. He was very patient explaining to the guests at our table the drink menu, and the food menu, regarding the different sauces and spice nuances. The kitchen is quick to accommodate your spice level, like/dislike of cilantro, etc. Overall another wonderful dining experience at Raas. The various kinds of Naan are the best we’ve had anywhere, and we moved here from the DC Metro area, so we have had lots of Indian food. Raas’ korma sauce is the bomb! Big surprise on the water chestnut appetizer. If you like spicy food, don’t miss it. (Yes. I know you are thinking why would anyone order water chestnuts. After you order them once at Raas, you will know!)
