We have been to Rani's on a number of occasions, the staff are all lovely and the service levels are good. The menu is really varied and when I have requested something not on the menu they have always been happy to oblige. The food is great and I particularly like their Tarka Dhal and Parthas.

The service here was good and the place is clean, however I was a little disappointed with the food. There seemed to be a lot of colouring in the majority of the dishes and little to distinguish what was what in taste.

My first impression was that it seemed ok albeit I do not understand why restaurants make you wait in the reception area when the restaurant is barely half full. To say the service is pedestrian is an understatement. Me and my colleague had been in the restaurant an hour and were still waiting for our first course. (The poppadoms had... More

Though the interiors aren't that good but this place is worth visiting for the money they charge. Good customer service, special care was taken to cook to our taste. Great flavour and freashly cooked. Worth visiting again.

My partner and I visit the Rani quite often though it is often a mixed bag. In terms of the food I cant recall ever having a bad meal and I would say the price is fair. I wouldn't describe it as outstanding or cutting edge Indian cuisine, more a safe option for consistently decent traditional Indian food. What I... More

The restaurant itself isn't all that appealing to the eye but don't let this put you off as the food is fantastic.I had the best onion bargie i've ever eaten for starter & the Pathia for main which...

Having had a lovely meal here last year with some friends I decided to ask my wife and a couple of other friends to go here for their first time. We were not disappointed. The 4 meals we had were all delicious. Each one was tasty and fresh with extremely well prepared meat. Flavours were excellent a credit to the... More
