This was our first time here but not our last- everything was exceptional. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 30th anniversary- the cocktails had a unique twist, we wish we had room to try everything on the menu but we split the catfish and steak both were prepared to perfection, topping off the meal with an amazing cheesecake!

My family of four ate there last evening. Meal was wonderful and our server, Jessie, was top notch. Very clean bathrooms and overall service was excellent. Only small complaint is not much of a kids menu, but the two items—cheeseburger and chicken fingers, were fine for my kids tastes. We’ll definitely be adding this to our annual repeat restaurant list!

About the restaurant
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.

I’ve been here several times and it has never disappointed. The food is always amazing and the service is always fantastic (Aaron was our waiter last night). I and a friend went last night. She has never been there before; she went away full and very happy she went. She had the chicken tikka masala and I tried the goat dish they have. Both were outstanding. I recommend Raas to every friend of mine who loves Indian food.

An outstanding experience start to finish, from the welcome (Mark) to the service (Alexis), caviar pancakes, tuna tartare, halibut, and a perfect espresso martini. We can’t wait to go back.
