One of a kind, fine dining Nepali restaurant in all (likely) of SF bay area.Focus is on Nepali cuisine and not a fusion of Indian, Nepali and Chinese dishes.Food is great and the staff are friendly!

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Rara and I must say, it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. As a fan of Nepalese cuisine, I was eager to try this restaurant, and it did not disappoint.The ambiance of the restaurant is warm and inviting, with traditional Nepalese decor that immediately transported me to the heart of Nepal. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive, providing excellent service throughout the evening.Now, onto the most important part—the food. The menu offered a wide variety of authentic Nepalese dishes, and each dish we tried was bursting with flavor and made with the freshest ingredients. From the mouthwatering momos to the aromatic curries, every bite was a delight for the senses. I highly recommend trying the non veg and vegetarian thali as they were both absolutely delicious.In addition to the fantastic food and atmosphere, the restaurant also offers a great selection of beverages, including refreshing lassi and traditional Nepalese teas that perfectly complemented the meal. The wine and beer menu is amazing ! Staff was superb !

Everything was suburb. The ambience peaceful and calming, the service friendly, and the food spectacular. I loved the charred paneer and charred lamb chops (I’m picky with lamb because of the scent of the meat and this one was perfect). The buffalo momos were also amazing, the sauce was very fresh. The portions were perfect. The shikarni dessert was simple and delicious. Honestly I’m super content to have tried this gem, it exceeded my expectations.

We happened across this new Nepalese restaurant on Cal Ave, and had a really wonderful dining experience there. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. All the dishes we ordered were impeccably spiced and delicious. We especially enjoyed the jackfruit potato curry!
