Rama or Ram, also known as Ramachandra, is a deity in Hinduism. He is the seventh avatar of the god Vishnu, wise and kind ruler. He is associated with the Supreme being. In Hare Krishna center Rama restaurant, the food is what’s supreme, without a doubt. Being the first vegetarian-only restaurant in Riga, and following their own philosophy and religion, Rāma offers the best vegetarian menu in the city, as far as I know.
The Indian atmosphere with the smell of incense, the paintings made in Indian technique on silk, the sacred animal and the TV screen informing clients about vegetarians in cinema, sports and media, is inspiring, considering we are in the middle of Riga. The main attraction is the food that has grown more creative over the years of consuming limited products. Some of the dishes are constantly available as ultimate classics, but most of the menu changes daily. If you are lover of exotic sweets, this is the place to visit.
The metal trails where the food is served suits the place and drive the imagination. If you come in and all the tables seem to be occupied, don’t loose hope; Rama has a second floor where there’s another TV screen for the full Rama experience.
So as not to waste food, at the end of the day Rāma offers happy hours with generous discounts of 25% and 50% during their last working hour. The selection isn’t so wide, but the food is as delicious as always.
