Great poppadums, starters, unusual mains. A bit pricey and i prefer the usual mains as am always disappointed when i decide to be adventurous. Nice staff and nice atmosphere. Worth a visit.

The menu is a bit 'designer. for my initial taste but the butter chicken is very pleasant indeed. I had this with a starter portion of chilli lamb on the side and through sheer greed I has a Lamb vindaloo (not on menu) and a Keema nan.

I also sampled the lamb chops . They were a little small but good enough to dunk in my vindaloo and butter chicken .

I am generally loyal to a rival cutty house but nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition and distribution of custom

I shall return !

The only downside of being a regular customer at Rara is that nothing can compare and I'm always disappointed by other Indian meals!

Lighter and fresher than the usual Indian meal, lots more citrus flavours and not so many sauces to be found.

Try the lamb chops angari - delicious!

This is one of our neighborhood restaurants and we've been there a couple of times, always satisfied.The (mostly) young personnel are very helpful, friendly and they do give recommendations. We don't really know nepalese cooking so it's good to get some pointers from them.

Just the best curry place I have ever been to. The Lamb Chetinad is incredible. The rice is outrageous. The Popadoms are homemade and delicious. Everything is incredible.
