Have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions now. Have always found the staff to be friendly, and the food to be brilliant. Have tried a number of dishes and found they have a perfect balance between taste and spice, which I find is difficult to come by with some Indian restaurants. Would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant... More

Delicious food - we had the Thali and each dish was great. Probably the best poppadoms ever! Good service too and a very reasonable price

Unlike a lot of the pretentious and overpriced 'nouveau cuisine' curry houses in the area, Rani serves up old school classics that are absolutely delicious and taste home made (the chicken Balti with extra coriander is particularly good). The staff take pride in the place, are smartly dressed and always go out of their way to help. On my third... More

Offering both dine in and take out, the menu is wide ranging and food is excellent. The staff are very friendly and attentive and always happy to help. No matter how busy, they always make the...

After some online deliberation (the website is not great) we decided to go and try Rani out after its promise of a traditional Bangladeshi/Indian experience. The place feels a little run down in terms of decor. Almost as if they have moved in after someone else has moved out, then given the place a token lick of paint. Anyhow the... More

Have visited this restaurant now numerous times. Never fails to deliver. Curries are spiced perfectly, and have good taste. Starters are equally as nice. Staff are very polite and always friendly. Would recommend this place to anyone, and perfectly placed for anyone wanting to roll on to a few bars afterwards!
