Rasa N16 Restaurant Review

: This is the Stoke Newington branch of chef-owner Das Sreedharan's group, decorated like all of them in that instantly recognizable bright pink. The restaurant specializes in the Nair cooking of Kerala and gives even the most hardened carnivore an insight into the delights and delicacies of vegetarian cooking. The set meal is the one to go for if you’re unfamiliar with the style; otherwise, from the many starters try the rice and lentil pancake stuffed with vegetables, and potato balls spiced with ginger, coriander and mustard seeds. Move on to any of the terrific curries or dosas (pancakes). And don't miss the crunchy pappadum accompanied by their own pickles and chutneys. The selection of wines lives up to the menu. Set 4-course meal £16.
