The Cuisine

Razmataz was the first ever Tandoori and curry house in Saint Lucia. The menu is traditional and authentic East Indian and Nepalese cuisine. Every dish is cooked individually using fresh, local vegetables, herbs, fish and seafood plus special imported spices and quality meat. The pride of the kitchen is a genuine Tandoori charcoal oven in which Chef Dipendra creates magic!

Meet the Chef

When you dine at Razmataz, more than likely you will meet Chef Dipendra. Every evening, he makes the rounds to greet patrons and ensure that they are enjoying the meals he has conjured up for their delight.

Chef Dipendra is from Nepal. That’s why the dishes he prepares are true to his origins; he grew up with these intense flavours and cooking styles. For him, it’s a labour of love to spend his days in the meticulous preparation of ingredients, his reward being the satisfaction of diners and the accolade of reviews in publications including The New York Times and the UK Observer.

Dipendra with his wife Pabita, daughter Sabina and son Paras

Dipendra’s chief assistant in the kitchen is his wife, Pabita. She is also from Nepal although the couple are now both citizens of Saint Lucia, as are their 15-year-old son, Paras, and 11-year-old daughter, Sabina, both of whom were born here on the island. Dipendra used to visit his family in Nepal every year but in 2018 his parents, both in their seventies, made the long trek to see the country that their son now calls home. His mother’s reaction: “Saint Lucia is heaven!”

Celebrity Choices

Whenever there is an international cricket match played in Saint Lucia, the visiting teams always dine at Razmataz. Chef Dipendra recalled for TT some dishes that celebrity guests have ordered, often repeatedly:

Brian Lara- Chicken Vindaloo

Richard Branson-Chicken Tikka Marsala

Paul Simon-Korma

Roger Taylor (of Queen)- Seafood Curry

Sir Derek Walcott-Lamb Cutlets and Sag Aloo.

These greats all had one thing in common — their appreciation of the excellent food and the agreeable ambiance that define Razmataz.
