Rama’s Fiji Indian Restaurant has been operating for over 25 years in the quiet suburb of Pearce in Canberra. After having two previous owners, Rama’s was established in 1991 under the ownership of Mini, Manni & Parsu and their family. This family-run restaurant is amongst the longest standing restaurants in Canberra and credits its vast menu and friendly service for its duration in the Canberra food scene.

Whilst offering the classic Indian favourites such as the Vindaloo’s and Korma’s, Rama’s is influenced by the Fiji style of Indian food in which the owners cooked and enjoyed back home in Fiji many years ago, making the Rama’s cuisine a slightly different approach to traditional Indian cuisine. Rama’s offers many vegan and gluten-free options and can cater for most dietary requests.
Although quite small and cosy upon first glance, Rama’s can seat up to 70 patrons inside with outdoor dining being offered in the warmer weather, which can see up to 80 patrons. Whether it be for a quick dinner before the movies or to celebrate a special birthday, Rama’s is the perfect location for customers to enjoy a satisfying dinner with their families, friends and loved ones.
Parsu Ram // Chef and owner
Guests are welcomed to bring their own alcohol, free of corkage, and wheelchair access is tight but doable. Rama’s has relied upon the support of their family and hardworking team of staff to consistently provide its customers with quality food and service. The chefs have seen well-over 1 million curries leave the kitchen over the years and will continue to deliver these satisfying dishes to our long list of loyal customers. Rama’s would like to thank its valued customers for all their support over the years.
