We love it!

Abi Ruchi offers authentic South Indian cuisine, not to be confused with Bangladesh Indian and reflects the food I loved while traveling in Kerala. We love it!

wonderful meal

Just had a wonderful meal for 6, perfect service and great value. The range of starters in the set menu for 2 was good and every dish was distinctly spiced and authentically flavoured.

We used Abi Ruchi's catering service for my wife's birthday party. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the price was great. I thoroughly recommend it!

Crucial for our wedding day

Mujeeb and his team did an amazing job catering for our wedding at Stoke Newington Town Hall. Every dish was utterly delicious and all 300 guests agreed. The staff were very friendly and the buffet service efficient and well-organised. We would not hesitate in recommending them for catering large events. Abi Ruchi were crucial in making our wedding day go so well - thank you!

wonderful food

I always look forward to a visit to Abi Ruchi: the wonderful food and delightful staff are a joy. Today's Onam Sadya (feast) was really excellent, a great collection of dishes and tastes served on banana leaves and eaten with the fingers. Thank you as always Abi Ruchi - Happy Onam and see you very soon!

Stokey's best kept secret.

Amazing special set menu. at least as good as the fantastic regular selection. The joy of unlearning that you can eat with your hands at what is easily the best Indian restaurant in London. Stokey's best kept secret.

won't be disappointed!

We love this place and come back time and time again for delicious, amazing Kerelan food. So different from the average Indian curry - very fragrant and expertly spiced. Super value too, and excellent friendly customer service. Try this place, you won't be disappointed!

I can't wait for my next visit.

Going into Abi Ruchi is like going into a friend's home. You're sure of an exceptionally warm welcome. The food is awesome - fresh, authentic Kerala cuisine, always delicious, always impeccably prepared. Love the mango lassi. I can't wait for my next visit.

The food we ordered yesterday was excellent and wonderful. What a taste!!

Best Indian Restaurant

This is the best Indian restaurant in our neighbourhood, better than more famous South Indian competitors. The food has been uniformly excellent over years, the service friendly and welcoming.

Amazing Food

The last order was the most amazing food!! The delivery driver got very lost though, the poor fella! The SatNav took him the wrong side of the road. Thankfully the food was still a good temperature and worth the wait. Thankyou..

Fresh, Tasty, Friendly

I travel back to Stoke Newington from southwest London just for this restaurant! Even with great south Indian cuisine on my doorstep (Tooting)... It is fresh, tasty, friendly and excellent value. A great mix of south Indian classics; peppery lamb fry, warming crab curry, light dosas and the best chicken vada. An absolute favourite!

Cuts No Corners

Abi Ruchi cuts no corners when it comes to bringing subtle Keralan cuisine to the capital. All the details are handled properly: from the popadoms (accompanied by small bowls of artfully spiced dips) to the breads (spongy, slightly sweet nadan dosa) and vegetable sides (gorgeously garlicky spinach fried with onions).

We enjoyed a starter of steamed squid stuffed with pur

High Standard

Abi Ruchi has been in Stoke Newington church street for 10 years, yet I had never tried it before. On first impressions, the restaurant looked modern and comfortable and tidy to a high standard.

The toilet was very tidy and nice. The menu is very varied, and offers a huge range of Southern Indian dishes and biriyanies. Although we go to a lot of Indian restaurants, being fairly new to this Southern cuisine, we chose from seafood dishes, as this is what we know Southern Indian cuisine are renowned for.

Great food! Martin N16

Food is Wonderful

New indian restaurants spring up everywhere, but Ruchi is still the best by far. we can't recommend it highly enough. Miles better than rasa!

Food is wonderful for quality and variety (esp fish & vegetarian). Smoked tamarind kingfish curry and creamy aubergine cashew curry among highlights.

We've had romantic meals, family meals with our rowdy toddler, and big party meals for 20+ friends there, and the staff are unflappably cheerful and helpful.

We've introduced lots of people to it - all of whom have become faithful customers. Every time the bill comes we're surprised how low it is.

A Great Restaurant

A good selection of veggie options but lots of meat for the carnivores too. A bit different from the usual Indian menu and really yummy! Friendly, efficient service and nice atmosphere too. Loved it!

Abi Ruchi is one of ma favorite resturants!

I've been there 3 times now and have enjoyed the tasty exotic food and warm service provided by the staff. Quiet and peaceful the mellow music in the back ground is relaxing and allows you to enjoy the atosmphere.

Price range is very reasonable with main course meals starting from

Lovely Indian Restaurant

Abiruchi is a lovely Indian restaurant serving signature dishes from Kerala in South India. The taste of South India is quite different from what most people associate with Indian food. the dishes have

The menu is great and there is a really good choice of fish and seafood dishes, not often found in indian restaurants. The wine list is reasonable both in choice and price and they have kingfisher on draught. The staff were really friendly, helpful and attentive. They were happy to explain some of the more strange dishes.

The food is similar to that of Rasa very close by and my choice was equally tasty. I think this place is often overlooked as Rasa keeps getting good reviews in different London guides, but it is definitely worth a visit.

Bodilklarskov - Sunday 1 Aug 10 22.56pm

I love this place

Its very close to both Rasa's that are by far the most famous Kerala restaurants in London but this place for me is just as good on food and cheaper.

If you are looking for a good value meat/fish/vege restaurant then look no further than here. They also do take away.

Absoulutely fantastic!!!

I go there all the time, wonderfull simple cooking! P.S. Have the Ruchi Sangaman

Gabriel Harding - Sunday 1 Aug 10 22.56pm

Highly Recommended

Abi Ruchi is one of my favourite Indians in London. The food is very similar to nearby Rasa (South Indian) and there is a great choice of veg and meat food here.

The service is always excellent they are really friendly people. Paneer & Peas on the Special menu is outstanding as is the Lassi.
