Cliches are best left untouched. A Caribbean lounge that pledges allegiance to the likes of Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix and Jimmy Cliff is invariably setting itself up for high expectations. Run by the same people as the fabulous Tarami next door, a walk through Raasta leaves you puzzled. Sure, the brightly coloured walls, the attempted witty signage and the Bob Marley poster OD are all there, but there's a vital ingredient of the Rastafarian movement missing and that's soul. The outdoor patio is pleasant enough and is often engulfed in the haze of sheesha. Their much recommend Caipiroska is liberal with the vodka and largely forgettable, while the Kiwi Margarita that looks promising from afar is nothing but kiwi mush. The multi-cuisine platters betray the theme too and the Fried Calamari was left almost untouched with only the reggae playlist turning out to be a saving grace.
