This isn't a restaurant and it's a shame some of the reviewers had those expectations. Ragga's is a small room, a bit shabby with basic furniture and a fridge for cans of drinks. The menus have a decent range of food but we tend to find they sell out of food very quickly and there have been visits where we've not been able to have a starter or a dessert. I can highly recommend some dishes - the curried goat is out of this world, lamb almost as good. Tilapia was good too, popular with some of the people coming out of the gym nearby. Jerk chicken and prawns recommended too, and the desserts they have, which change on a regular basis are good too. And the coleslaw is the best in the world, incredibly creamy and tangy. The service is friendly but basic, just like the decor. We've been there when it's empty and been there when you have to wait an hour for a free table. Last visit my friend and I shared 3 starters, 2 main courses and a dessert each and our bill was less than £25. Bargain. It's a favourite with us and we happily travel 30-40 minutes to have dinner there on a regular basis.

I wouldn't really recommend Ragga's for a sit-down meal, as the atmosphere is a bit grim. The food, though, is really nice. The brown stew tilapia is out of this world and the rice and peas very good as well. Perfect for takeaway, I'd say!

Our third visit to this restaurant and we are not disappointed. 4 different main courses and we all rated them highly. Lack of licence did not spoil the experience as fruit punches and ginger beer kept pace with our thirsts. Fast efficient service and well-presented food. Plantains and dumplings rated excellent and jerk chicken, vegetable curry and beef stew were very good indeed. Raggas is a valuable addition to Lark Lane's burgeoning cafe/restaurant life.
