We stayed in Kerala a few years ago and adored the food. The Ragam did not disappoint by any means in that regard. A wonderful small restaurant with a big heart. Service was attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Some other reviews have mentioned that portions served here are small. Not so! We foolishly followed that and over-ordered. Dhosa are a must, and try the Lamb cooked in an interesting way. You will taste every spice used in the dish. We'll be back!

We have been enjoying Ragam delicious food since we moved to London in the 1980’s having moved from Leicester (one of the best cities for Indian food) The Ragam was one of the only Resturants to be able to match the delicate flavours of Indian food we had become used to. Absolutely the best.

Best and authentic Indian food in central london. Friendly staff, properly cooked dishes. Consistently delivers amazing food we normally pick up and enjoy at home with friends or family. Highly recommended! On line ordering system very convenient and easy to use.

Been to Ragam on a few occasions(not as often as I'd like as I live in Herfordshire)and the food and service are always excellent . I am back again on Saturday to introduce my daughter to the wonderful food on offer(The Dosa are fabulous).

Food is always terrific. It's my always my first place to visit whenever I'm in London

Consistently top quality Kerala food, I particularly like the Rasam, fiery and full of flavour. The Sambar is good, and the coconut chutneys with the Iddly and dosais are fresh and tasty. The plain dosai (which you have to ask for, it's not on the menu), is perfect, and in my view preferable to the stuffed masala or mushroom versions. It's a wide menu with some concessions to North Indian tastes with tandoori and rice dishes, and plenty of variety for vegetarians and fish and meat eaters alike.

Too far for a takeaway, sadly (probably a good job or I'd be ordering every day!). Regularly visit on special occasions and to meet friends and food is always outstanding.

Unlike most "Indian " restaurants, the food at Ragam's is not only delicious but everything is distinctively different. Flavour is the order of the day and I have yet to have a disappointing dish.

Excellent food. True and best South Indian taste in London

Been coming here since 1992. A friend's recommendation and it has never failed in the freshness of the food and the authenticity of the spices. The cooking takes time but the wait is always worthwhile.

I went to this restaurant last night with five friends and we loved it. The food was fantastic. The staff are very friendly and efficient and it was very cheap. We walked a long way to go here and we were not disappointed. Great place to go with a group of people.

My wife and I have been coming to this restaurant for three years. Food is delicious. Very delicate and efficient service. The environment is not glittering but you would feel just like at home. Our favourites lentil and spinach and chicken korma curries.

Not a run of the mill Indian restaurant, Ragam offers a good choice of dishes including lots not seen in other restaurants. This is not a fancy place (not for a first date!) but offers good cooking at a very reasonable price with friendly and helpful service.

I started going to go this restaurant in 1989, when my university accomodation was round the corner and it was a treat to go and eat some real home made curries and south indian dishes such as dosas, idlis etc.I went back there this afternoon for lunch as coincidentally i work round the corner!it is still as good and fresh as before.

We eat here all the time and are so happy that it is our local. The food is totally authentic and a far cry from the bleached and dye-ridden curries that you see so many of in London. <br><br> You can always tell a good chef by their dahl - and it is fab here. The chicken masala and veg biriyani are also good, as is the set menu (the staff are brilliant with group bookings).

I live in Canada and spend a lot of time in London. I am an Indian food lover and understand the British and their relationship with curry is a deep and complex one. That said, I am frequently disappointed with Indian food in the UK. In my opinion some of the more recent N American interpretations of Indian food are better than the British ones. <br><br> However the Ragam doesn't disappoint. The dosa's, dhal, and even non-vegetarian dishes are superb, authentic, reasonably priced (in fact too cheap!) and although the restaurant is basic, it is clean and the service is first class. <br><br> One word of warning. Make a reservation first!

Rating: 9/10 This is a magnificent little restaurant, impervious to the march of the high-street tandoori and the trend for posh Indians serving garbage in all-purpose curry sauce. It prefers instead to provide fabulous regional cooking at prices that beggar belief, just as it has done for almost 30 years. Ragam is an absolute, 24-carat gem.
