From the moment I tasted the dips I knew I was in for a treat. I was munching away at the poppodums and tried the mint yoghurt, it was made with fresh mint! Very few places do that these days, and the other dip was tamarind not the usual store bought mango chutney.
For my starter I had grilled lamb tandoori. Again all fresh herbs and the dish generally had a very clean and fresh flavour.
For the main course I went for the old favourite, chicken tikka masala, and I wasn`t disappointed, very tasty and not too sweet.
I didn`t have dessert but before leaving I did talk to the owner, he was a genuinely friendly guy with a great sense of humour.
If your in the area and looking for a great, fresh, clean tasting curry then RaRa is the place to go.
Great Nepalese food, which is similar to Indian, however I find that the individual spices come through much better in the flavour. Think of it as Indian food - refined. At least that is the case at Rara.
Great selection of dishes, along with a full menu page of spicy dishes titled 'Some like it hot'! Well I certainly do, so that was a big plus point for me.
Some recommended dishes:
Chilli chicken starter
Jhalfrezi chicken main (not your average Jhalfrezi)
All outstanding and tasty, we finished everything!
