Large choice of food. Ordered sheek kebab starter which wasn't the best, but the main course was very enjoyable. Thought the starters were a little expensive but otherwise pretty good

Tried this by recommendation and could not fault it, lovely food and very good service in which they could not do enough for you. I would go back as they have a variation of meals that I not heard of before and would love to try. I could imagine that it would get rather busy at the weekend so would... More

The service was very slow and the staff seemed inconvenienced by our requests for food/drinks. The food was great, however we wouldn't return due to the uncomfortable atmosphere.

Unusual selection of dishes from the subcontinent... everything has a fresh taste, generous use of spices, moist and tender chicken... staff appear on the lazy side rather than attentive, but I don't mind that. The important thing is the food was first class. Slightly pricier than your average indian restaurant, but worth the extra

Waited 2 hours for our food. Table next to use came in after and had finished their starter before our drinks order was even taken! We were repeatedly ignored by staff all night. When food finally arrived it was not good quality, majority was over cooked and bland! Very long, expensive night, memorable but not in the good way!!

We had a very enjoyable meal last Saturday evening at Rani. The decor and ambience is lovely and the service good. We enjoyed the mixed meat platter and onion bhajees and our main course of four chicken dishes, rices and naan breads were flavoursome and tasty. Would recommend this restaurant which is very near the Quayside.

This isn't a particularly cheap establishment however the food most certainly doesn't live up to the price tag. The service was average although they did fit us in with a table for two without booking on a Saturday evening. There are far better options in the area.
