On Friday evening after a pretty busy week Bron and I enjoyed a night out at Rama’s Fijian Indian Restaurant in Pearce.
Bron and I have dined there a few times before
It’s been a little while since we last ate there and after a long week we were pretty keen to enjoy a reasonably filling meal, not gluttonous but filling. Rama’s doesn’t disappoint in terms of flavour and variety. I do need to explore other restaurants in Canberra that serve Indian food, but I will happily keep coming back to Rama’s.
Deep fried crispy bread 4 for $3.00 but these were complimentary before the starter 🙂
Vegetable Samosas (2 of), Fish Pakoras (2 of), Bhajia (2 of) serves 2. [$22.00]
The Bhajia was really nice. The pastry of the samosa was really good and Bron rated this really highly.
Chicken Dhai Wala
Boneless chicken pieces cooked in a spiced yoghurt sauce. [$22.00]
This was a spicy dish but not really hot. You certainly got a sense of heat but the spiciness was lovely.
Ground meat balls cooked in a rich creamy sauce and topped with blanched almonds. [$22.00]
The sauce with this dish was creamy and smooth. It was wonderful soaked up in the rice. Four meatballs though was a little light on, although we were full, for $22 a dish mainly of sauce was a little too expensive. Perhaps a smaller serving dish and less sauce.
Grated cucumber in spiced yoghurt. Ideal for cooling the palate. [$5.00]
This was lovely and refreshing although it could have had a little more cucumber.
All curries are served with unlimited rice at a charge of $2.50 per person.
Wholemeal pan fried bread.(g) 1 for $2.50
Who can say no to fried bread, even if it is wholemeal. It sopped up the sauces nicely and coated the chicken in a jacket of happiness.
For dessert Bron brought me some of her cookies and cream cheesecake. YUMMY!!! This was truly amazing.
The food at Rama’s is really nice, spicy, tasty and served with a genuine friendliness. The restaurant itself is a little cramped. As a non-drinker I don’t care that it is BYO only but you should know they do NOT charge corkage and will happily provide a cooler for the bottle.
The takeaway service is also very popular and they deliver. In my opinion, a mark of a really good suburban restaurant is their takeaway service and I’ve been told by many friends that the Rama’s takeaway is very good.
Now for the all important non-food ratings. I’ve uploaded a page to help readers make sense of what I’m on about. You can find it at http://yummylummy.com/restaurant-non-food-ratings/ That’s where the Rama’s rating will be too.
We will eat again at Rama’s. It’s a friendly and cheery place with very nice food.
