Wonderful food...poor wine pouring

Coconut chick pea onion balls and the grilled tamarind chicken were wonderful. The rice pudding with almond dessert was really excellent. We had a nice BC red wine but our server kept pouring it on the outside of our glasses. And NOT wiping it off so we had to do it ourselves or drip on our... read 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

Loved the food at Rangoli. We had the lamb curry, tamarind chicken and Portobello mushroom dish. Everything was tasty, flavourful and beautifully presented. The only thing we didn't like was the naan (too thin and crispy). the drinks (lassies, lemon and ginger drink) were all delicious.

We had a nice BC red wine but our server kept pouring it on the outside of our glasses. And NOT wiping it off so we had to do it ourselves or drip on our clothes.

If you love Indian food you need to try Rangoli. I remembered the location from a 2010 visit to Vancouver and I was excited to see that it was still in business. The entrees are not big enough to share but we did anyways. We ordered the samosas with lentils, chickpeas and paneer. They were a tiny bit dry but... More

Next to Vij, a more informal bistro like setting with patio. Service was attentive, no waits, good advice on the menu. We had crispy cauliflower, potato, spinach, onion, pakoras with dal and a delicious minty mango salsa. Then lamb in coconut and mustard seed curry, with juicy lean meat and a unique flavour from the mustard. Chickpeas in Fenugreek on... More
