Who would have thought that tucked away in the King's Cross Holiday Inn was such a wonderful find. The food hails from Kerala and is a far cry from your usual Indian restaurant, a taste that I am more used to. I have now eaten here four or five times, having worked late around the corner, and rate it as one of the best Indian restaurants I have experienced. The menu is small but that's a good thing from what I have seen as the flavours are distinctive and delicious, and the Keralan house speciality chicken curry is superb (I can't spell it but it's something like Varuthatha...). From the authentic snacks, to the starters, of which I have tasted most (potato balls are best yet - Mysore Bonda) to the delicious curries which really are different and should be tried! If you have room (and you probably wont) try a banana Dosa or fresh tasting mango sorbet to finish off your meal. Don't let the fact that it is nestled under a Holiday Inn put you off as the staff are attentive and friendly and guided me through the menu first time around as I had not seen many of the dishes before.
I would thoroughly recommend Rasa Maricham if you want a quality curry in a nice environment that differs from the standard curry flavour that you will know from your high street curry houses. Price-wise its comparable to many of the Indian restaurants I've visited over the last year or two, but as the food is so good, this makes it great value in my book. It's a fantastic restaurant serving delicious food and makes working late worthwhile, I've even started to find excuses to work late! Enjoy, I know you will!
