The owner met and seated us, took time to chat even though the restaurant was full, took our orders promptly - checking how hot/mild we wanted each dish - making suggestions along the way. Within moments we had poppadoms and accompanying sauces. We shared starters of pakora and samosa - both good and hot - only slight comment would be... More

The food was ok but not as good as many other restaurants in Canberra. The owner was rude and service was patchy. Overall not a great experience.

Rama's is a family favourite for us. My eldest started going there at 2 yrs old and loved it (he was unusually open to different flavours); it is still his favourite place 8 years later. Our other kids also enjoy going there now they are older. Mini, the owner, always takes time to stop and chat with the regulars and... More

On a Saturday night, with all tables inside and outside taken, one would expect the best of chefs working the kitchen - even in a suburbian location. Whatever drove previous reviews, we were very disappointed: the starters neither looked inviting, nor did the fish cakes taste anything but rubbery, the lentil cakes totally lacked any taste. The "medium hot" lamb... More

The only explanation that could be is that we visited a different Ramas to the one reviewed in TA. 145 people said 5/5. Truly? The food here is poor, full stop. This is in no way interesting our even tasty Indian food. It is poorly executed. The dishes lack taste. The ingredients are poor. The condiments are poor. We started... More

What can I say about Ramas that hasn't been said?! This is, hands down, one of the best Fijian/Indian restaurants in Canberra, if not Australia. Minnie, Daya and Parsu create homemade curries that we feel lucky to be able to eat in such a welcoming atmosphere. There's a dish for everyone - beautiful vegetarian as well as meat and fish...

Had a fabulous dinner at Ramas Fijian Indian Restaurant. The menu was traditional curries we all know and love, generous servings and catered to all tastes - ie mild, medium or hot. No request was too hard. The lovely owner worked the room and was attentive to all tables whilst she managed a full house. Complimentary starters and free corkage.... More

Loved it! We reqlly enjoyed our meal, cannot wait to go back. We are both vegetarian and there was plenty of options for us both. It got quiet busy. Our only complaint is we don't live closer so we could have it once a week!

I have been visiting ramas for twenty five years. In the early days I would order take away at least one a week. Times have changed and I do not indulge so much in take away food. However ramas is still the best and most consistent Indian food I have eaten. I have eaten Indian cuisine all over Australia and... More

The food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Remember to book as it is very popular. It is not licensed, so BYO is the way to go.
