Given the popularity of Indian restaurants, you sometimes have to go far to find an exceptional one. Well, you’re in luck in Saint Lucia! The long haul here is worth it for the warm welcome (back) to Razmataz.

The Restaurant

Razmataz – even the name evokes colour and fun!  The restaurant has been going strong since 1994, at the same venue along the Rodney Bay strip, and with the same chef. The patrons are a mix of regulars who drop by weekly, and tourists there for the first (second, third . . . ) time, all in agreement that the food and atmosphere are a joy to the senses. This is a place where the decor, furnishings, background music and aromas transport your mind to the East and prepare you for authentic East Indian and Nepalese cuisine.

The Cuisine

The kitchen houses a genuine Tandoori charcoal oven that is fired up 24 hours a day. Every dish is cooked individually using a combination of fresh, local vegetables, herbs, fish and seafood plus special imported spices and quality meat. The menu is traditional and authentic East Indian and Nepalese dishes. Choose from an extensive array of small dishes for appetizers and then indulge in a Balti or Chef’s special, Tandoori delight or Nepalese sizzler. There is an excellent choice for vegetarians. First-timers should note that Razmataz is renowned for its generous food portions.

The Chef

The authenticity of the menu is guaranteed because the chef, Dipendra Bahadur K.C. hails from Nepal. Cooking his native dishes is his passion! He takes immense pride in the intense preparation of ingredients, and cooking in his Tandoori oven, to ensure that when you eat his creations, you experience all the flavours of his home region.

Making it even better

Whether straight from an afternoon on the beach or as a start to your evening, you should visit Razmataz for happy hour, from 5 til 7 pm and enjoy some tasty bar snacks with your drinks. Takeaway is available, at 10% off the in-dining menu prices. Children are welcome and, instead of ordering from the menu, can munch on freshly-made chicken nuggets.
