Very tasty and fresh indian cuisine in a friendly atmosphere

The decor is modern and clean, the staff were friendly, and the food arrived fairly quickly. Great flavours, cooked fresh to order! I recommend the Lamb in Coconut and... read more

Took my husband there for a birthday lunch, he had been wanting to go for a while. It sure didn't disappoint. We started with the pakora and mint/mango sauce, it was crispy and the vegetables were chunky. The chutney is amazing, with a kick! We bought some on the way out. Our lunches were delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Did not have to wait too long which was good. Service seemed rushed and sporadic. The waitresses were pleasant but the host was grumpy. Pakoras were good, liked the chickpea dip. Pulled pork was a little tough but the quantity was large. We ran out of naan fast but we're not offered more until our meal was finished. Guess it... More

I've been here with my husband, but I love coming here with my girlfriends. Awesome food and always really good service! If you don't know what to order, the servers are always helpful in giving you good recommendations. Everything I've tried there is delicious but still haven't tried everything on their menu, so just means I'll have to come back... More

I went to Rangoli for lunch and I don't think I will be returning. The employees didn't seem very cheery (slightly rude actually), the food was average, and prices were decent. I will say, however, that the chai was delicious - I had three cups.

I may be spoiled by living in London and the quality and variety of Indian / Pakistani food available, but I didnt feel the food here was particularly good. I may be wrong but the kebabs seemed like they were the frozen and heated variety. Plus they were very very salty. We also had the chaat and barring the green... More

We ahd a late (1:30 p.m.) lunch at Rangoli and again, had an excellent meal. Three of us tried 3 dishes, shared them around and all 3 were excellent. The new additions to the menu are lovely and we tried a new sauvignon blanc, Norton's from Argentina which was very nice. The three dishes were almost more than we needed... More

Have been to Vij's next door many times. Vij's Rangoli is much more informal with a great menu! The service is fabulous. The curry was amazing. My husband had the grilled Talapia and I the pulled pork on sautéed greens and we were not disappointed. Also the best naan and chai in town!

The food here is authentic Indian and it was the best Indian food I have ever eaten. We went to Rangolis which is a daytime version of Vij's. It was crowded because of the tourist season. But we got a table quickly, The maitre d' rushed us through the meal, but then again, there were people waiting, it's small and... More
