We've never been to Rangoli or to Vij's and didn't want to wait in line. We really enjoyed the casual atmosphere of Rangoli. We sat in the covered outdoor seating (beware of the uneven pavement surface). Samosas - delicious! The filling was different than we're used to as the base is lentils. The sauces were a great compliment. Chickpeas in... More

Delicious place to enjoy a quick lunch. Vij's next door is always busy (for dinner), but if you want to satisfy a craving for delicious Indian food without breaking the bank Rangoli is a great place to try!

We were pining for some Indian food and we were recommended by the owner of another restaurant "The Eatery" to visit this restaurant. We walked in and were seated within a few minutes. The service was wonderful and the drinks arrived in a jiffy. We tried a few of the local craft beers which seem to work wonderfully well with... More

We have been hearing rave reviews about this establishment for many years now and had to try for ourselves. Vikram Vij is famous for his exquisite flavours at his many restaurants. Vij's Rangoli does not accept reservations. They are open between 1100 and 2200 hours, we attended about 1600 hours on Sunday and ample seating was available. The décor is... More

Why wait forever at Vj's next door when you can have equally good food at his "low brow" sister restaurant ...... Rangoli. The Kebabs are to die for. The lamb curries are excellent. The dishes look small but you will leave stuffed

My family and I had planned to go to Vij's but decided that Rangoli had a very interesting selection of food, and we would be able to eat much sooner and therefore enjoy sitting outside in the sun. I think we definitely made the right decision. We have been to Vij's before and really like it, but this was almost... More

Being a desi individual, judging north Americanized Indian food can be tricky. Personally, the food was decent and delicious. It has a different flare which can be interpreted in two ways. The way I look at it: don't judge it with traditional Indian food. Overall pretty good. Maybe a little over spiced on the kebabs but good

I'm Indian so I do have a certain level of expectation of Indian food. And I was super excited to come to Vancouver to eat at Vij's. This sucked. Every single dish lacked that 'umph'. I bet it's 100 x better next door but Rangoli failed. The chaat had no flavour, the chicken was unpalatable. Unfortunately, we arrived late &... More

We came into town to visit Vancouver. After reading all the reviews, we decided to stop by Rangoli and try it. All four members of my family were of the same opinion. Way overrated, overpriced, and food was so-so. The service was nice, but the food taste was nothing special. We have been to Indian restaurants all over and i... More
