An interesting mix of Southern and Northern Indian food. Very well cooked with each dish tasting of its individual mix of spices. Friendly, welcoming staff and very reasonably priced.

Very good food if u can put up with the bad service, atmosphere

I really enjoy the food here, their veg set lunches are very tasty and good value and their south Indian dishes are very authentic, however the service can either be utterly non existent to slightly over bearing. Even though it is rarely busy the food seems to take forever to arrive. And the decor... read more

if your in Watford & fancy a great tasting Indian style meal, take a walk away from the high street & walk to the very end of Market street to Merton road, it will be worth it. Directly opposite is hidden gem of a restaurant where the food is beautiful, great value & we have found served by friendly &... More

Since 3 months Rathiga is sold to new Nepalese people and name of restaurant is namaste katmandu restaurant and bar... We have been visiting this place since 3 months and new people are doing very well... Perfect pan-Asian cuisine with peaceful environment... Hope all of you visit the place again and enjoy...

We are a regular visitor to Rathiga in Edgware, this time went to Rathiga Watford. What a mistake we did. The restaurant was not at all buzy on Sunday afternoon. Ordered our food and asked the waiting time, was advised it to be 10 minutes, waited, waited and waited for 30 minutes for the first dish too arrive and that... More

In the past this restaurant has been outstanding with their food. We have taken family and friends here and the food does not disappoint. Last week we took 2 friends who had not been to this restaurant before. What an utter let down and the food did not taste the same as before. Our orders were taken and drinks arrived... More

If you want to encounter the worst service in London, go to their Edgware branch. I have been to many restaurants and this place is just terrible. Worst waiter ever was encountered. 1) My mum went to restaurant a couple of days before we went. She was allowed to make a substitution with one of the dishes on the Tali.... More

Read the reviews of this restaurant carefully - they tell you the truth. We found the place pretty much empty at 8pm on a Saturday evening, which was the first clue. The interior is basic but clean, but there is a distinct lack of atmosphere amidst the friendly but slow service. But all of this could be forgiven if the... More
