Authentic Indian food prepared with quality ingredients - the cuts of lamb are excellent - and with nice, personal service.

The food at RaRa is exceptional - this is not your run-of-the-mill Indian, the presentation of the dishes is sensational, the food is light and full of flavour and the owner is often there to personally welcome you. Iʼll be back!
We started with the Tandoori lamb chops which were truly wonderful and a Prawn Puri which was also excellent. However, it all went a bit downhill from there. Both sauces with the main courses (fish and king prawn dishes) tasted a bit thick and glutinous (particularly the fish one), which is something I've never experienced with Indian cooking. Even the dhal tasted a bit gluey. Perhaps it was the type of cooking oil. However, the house wine (red) was very good. The service was pleasant but not exceptional and the decor quite stylish. If you decide to go, have the lamb chops!
Last Thursday evening was great from start to finish - I visited Rara with a few friends. We were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome from Baz and then seated. Being my first time at the restaurant I was very impressed with the contemporary and modern decor, not what you would normally expect at an Indian restaurant.
Baz was very helpful when we were deciding on our wine and meal, having the extra choice of a Nepalese menu I wanted to try something different.
The meal was fantastic and the helpings were very generous, we each tried each others meals and were all agreed that they all tasted fantastic! I just wish I could have eaten all of it.
I will certainly be visiting Rara in the future, not only for the great staff, elegant decor and amazing food but also because it was value for money. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
I was lucky enough to be invited to an event organised by Suzy Elliott Marketing at RaRa. It was a fabulous evening and the team at RaRa were exceptional. The welcome was genuine and the food was fabulous - truly delicious and unique. The atmosphere was great and the decor and lighting added to the evening perfectly. I would highly recommend RaRa for an intimate evening out - or an office party.
