Friendly Service but food wasn't great

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... read 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

Went here on Valentine's Day and it was as busy as expected but we only waited 45 or so and the staff were very welcoming. The food was excellent and service quick. We had a lamb curry and pakoras.

We were a group of 4, me, my husband, my friend and her husband. After hearing a lot of appreciation for Vij's restaurant, we went there to have a good dinner. We knew that they did not take reservations and went directly to the restaurant at around 7PM. But we were told it would take a minimum of 1 and... More

I always have a great meal when I come to this restaurant. The food is consistent and delicious, the service is great, and the chai tea, so good! The only thing is space is limited and it can get a little cramped. I tried a few dishes and they are all good. I went with a few friends for dinner... More

In the past we have enjoyed this restaurant as well as Vij's, however our last visit may very well be our last! Even though the food was very good, the usually average service was well below expectations and a sour disappointment.

Located right next door, Rangoli also serves up delicious food, with next to no wait. Much more casual, eat in or grab some curry packages to take home with you.
