About Rara

Rara is a Nepalese and Indian restaurant with a difference. Here, right in the heart of London’s Kew, every dish is cooked fresh to order every time and is made with only 100% natural ingredients. As such, Rara is absolutely loved by locals and is certainly a restaurant for which many Londoners are willing to travel to enjoy. The Nepalese and Indian food here won’t leave you feeling overfull and bloated either, thanks to no preservatives, artificial flavours or colours and a minimal use of oil. On Sandycombe Road, Rara London is a short walk from Kew Gardens train station, immensely popular and therefore absolutely worth a reservation in advance.

My friend from Hong Kong had never had Indian food this good. Great service and atmosphere. If you aren’t sure what to order the staff recommendations will be spot on. Best in the area.
