Overview

Rara, found in Sandycombe Road in Kew, is the rare kind of restaurant that cynical Londoners will cross a river for. Baz, the enthusiastic and welcoming owner, is worth the trip on his own; his passion for traditional Nepalese cuisine is infectious. Rara’s minimalist dining room – with cream leather banquettes and beautiful fresh flowers - belies the sensational flavours and exquisite presentation of the food. Cooked without Ghee butter, and made using spices freshly ground in the kitchen, the dishes here are superb. Our favourites include the master chef’s King Prawn Jhalfrezi with lemon rice, the Rara Special Mix – chicken tikka, sautéed mushrooms and samosas, and the Gurkhali Lamb – a spicy Nepalese village-style lamb curry.

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.

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.
