The food here is fabulous. We've been coming to Ragam for 10 years bringing guests of all nationalities and can honestly say we've never been disappointed. Each dish is differently spiced and there is so much variety that even hardened carnivores find themselves choosing vegetarian dishes to try out something new. If you're not sure what to choose the friendly staff will advise. You can't go wrong with potato dosai, coconut rice, chickpea curry, ginger chicken, cauliflower and peas and a yoghurt based lassi to wash it all down. And make sure you get some tasty pickles. A review in a national newspaper was a bit sniffy about the decor. Let's just say it's unpretentious - like a favourite, slightly faded Aunty's front room - and the toilets aren't the most modern. But anyone who values good food above image will be blown away.

Don't be fooled by the, er, basic decor. This place is a gem. Order a Dosai pancake, and a coconut paratha. They are among the tastiest food I've ever had. Be a little adventurous and you will be well rewarded. Alternatively, even dishes that are normally really boring taste incredible here. We once ordered a korma when dining with a pesky "I don't like spicy food" friend, and it was divine. Go!

We always try to go here on a night out, with some friends. Small compact single room - fits about 20 people. Best to book to get in, as I've never seen it less than full.
Great food, each dish I've tried is always unique - no generic 'orange-tika-like sauces' here ! About £20 per head for beer, shared starter, one main, veg, shared rice and shared bread dish. Good value for London - keep away from the Brick Lane restaurents.

Read a good review on ragam in a dutch mag... So on our visit to London we booked a table for 12 to 15 people, the manager sent us a few set dinner option and let me tell you the food was out of this world. My family and even friends from London were blown away with the flavors especially the cauliflower (cheeky) dish.. and the kulfi was not on our menu but I thought it was very nice.... Will definitely be back on our next trip.. can't wait.

Whilst offering many of the regular items you'd expect from a london curry house, Ragam stands out for its selection of south indian food such as its Masala Dosas. Would recommend giving it a try.
