My wife an I ate here in September. We waited only 15 minutes to be seated and were pleasantly surprised with the experience. 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 Mustard Seed Curry and Curried Spinach and Paneer

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

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.
