We visited in 2011 with a group of friends. The restaurant is very busy and be prepared to wait for a long time. Our food was very average and tempered down to more of a fusion taste.

Went to Rangoli because there was along line up at Vij. We had a table on the patio. The food was good and service was good, however our night did not end well. We had just finished our dinner and were about to order dessert when two mice came out of the far wall of the patio where some flower... More

Continues to be Vij's little brother restaurant. This is our go-to location when we are hankering for Vij's but the lineup may be too long. The menu is simpler and more comfort food style. Pricing would also be about 2/3 the price of its fancier older brother. But you can't go wrong with the food from top to bottom of... More

So flavourful! Even though there were several 'warnings' that the spice level would be high, this was not the case - unless you find a sprinkling of black pepper 'hot', there is nothing that would be a source of pain. We had lunch two days in a row, sitting outside on the small patio was quiet despite being so close... More

Great food! Wanted to try vij's but Rangoli had some open tables and had dinner there. Good service and great menu choice bit pricey though.

Had kebabs lamb curry pulled pork All delicious. There was a 1.5 hr wait next door at vij's so we walked in here (apparently same chef) I can whole heartedly recommend it. Local Indians rave about it!

We came for a late lunch. We had the patio almost to ourselves. We let the waitress know I am celiac and she steered us readily thru the menu. Every dish was excellent. The service was quick and friendly. We bought the cookbook and some garam masala and some prepackaged food to go, and enjoyed that another night.

As expected, awesome food. The staff was great too. Very helpful in suggestions of what to try but not pushy. Very accommodating for our kids as well. The food is so creative and subtly flavoured. We had the tamarind chicken, paneer samosas, kebabs and mogo fries. All were wonderful. The kebabs were spicy but still oozing with flavour. The tamarind... More

We ate outside on the patio one warm evening in June. We had never eaten Indian food before and decided to try it at this famous restaurant. We were not disappointed. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and very patient. He described the various dishes and offered suggestions on which ones to try. Our appetiizers and entrees were delicious! Vij came... More
