About Rara

Located in the Victoria Road, South Ruislip, Rara is an elegant restaurant acclaimed for its innovate modern Nepalese and north Indian cuisine. The team at Rara follow a philosophy of using fresh, high-quality ingredients and lashings of inventive flair. Named after the largest lake in the Himalayan Mountains, the restaurant has a serene ambience. Each dish boasts delicate, home-style flavours and the chefs are skilled at blending spices perfectly for each creation. The menu is superb, and we love the Crab Kofta Curry with crab meat, potatoes and dry fruits; Mint Chicken Tikka - chicken marinated with yoghurt and mint grilled in a clay oven and finished with lemon juice; and the delicious Nepalese Momos - dumplings served with chutneys.
