Rāma is the only strictly vegetarian restaurant in Riga. The food is served on metal trays instead of plates which gives Rāma an atmosphere of a busy canteen. Here you will find the widest range of Indian cuisine – both the first and second meals as well as snacks are made only with vegetables, soy and dairy products. One of the specialties here is the locally made fried bread without yeast.
The restaurant is quite small – there are only 32 seats. In the morning there are fewer people but during the day you might find queues leading up to the door – this is due to regular customers who come here every day for lunch. The Indian atmosphere is created by music, perfume, classical Indian pictures which are painted on silk and of course the unique food choice.
In the basement there is a small shop Hanuman, where one can find a wide variety of things from household goods (ecological washing and cleaning products), natural cosmetics (hair color, body oils, rose water etc.), tea and spices, to Indian style interior stuff, silk scarves, perfume buds, rich collection of music CDs, books and vegetarian food products (soy sausages, cereals, cakes etc.)
It is a nice place for lunch accompanied with light and warm Indian rhythms and unusual taste varieties of vegetarian dishes. During happy hour (19:00-20:00) hot meals have a 25% discount.
