“One of the best restaurants in Canberra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

My husband and I have enjoyed many meals at Ramas over the years we have lived in Canberra. The style is Fijian Indian, so it offers a different take on Indian cuisine. Reservations are well advised, as its a small popular restuarant. Enjoy!

“A culinery experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Great food - friendly, excellent service - a well kept secret. Minnie the owner is a hostest with the mostest and goes out of her way to ensure you have an experience to remember. The restaurant is generally busy and crowded and you will need to book particularly on weekends. It is BYO but there is a liquor shop next door (not sure what time it shuts). The Fjij Indian menu has something for everyone even those who do not enjoy spicy food. There are usually a few tables outside in Summer time but you will need to book those early as they are very popular. A surburban gem!

“Great, tasty food and service with a smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

I've been going to Ramas for many years and it's my favourite Indian restaurant in Canberra. Minnie and staff are always very welcoming and service is friendly and efficient. Over the years, I've tried most of the menu and my favourites are the potato roti parcels for the entree and either lamb rogen josh, beef vindaloo, jhinga nariel (prawn) for the main... all really deelicious! They also deliver to the local area for free (as long as your order is >$35) and I am lucky enough to be included, they will deliver wider afield for a $6 surcharge. Regarding atmosphere, this is not really a place for a quiet, romantic dinner. The tables are close together and it can get pretty noisy at the height of the feeding frenzy... but that adds to the charm.

“Awesome food - wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Ramas is easily my favourite Indian restaurant. I have been going to Ramas for years and the owner Minnie is fantastic and so welcoming every time. The food is delicious and generous. If you order a banquet for a group , Minnie will offer you more dishes at no extra cost, she just wants you to be satisfied:-)
One of my favourite dishes is the pumpkin rotis for a starter. You do need to book though as is full every night. Also no BYO cost - can you believe that! Also a shop next door that sells wine, too easy. Great atmosphere too.
Also you never are rushed out at the end of the night, Minne tells you to take your time. I love the place.

“Reliable, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

This little Fiji Indian restaurant in Pearce serves quality curries every day. I have dined here for over 20 years and bought take aways regularly, it has never failed me. Good fresh food, great flavours and efficient service. And it is very reasonably priced. Book well ahead if you want to dine in, the locals know how good it is.
