Almost as good as curry in Brum!

Being from Birmingham, testing out the local curry has become a bit of a habit for me and my group of friends whenever we go away, so when we spotted Rani just around the corner from our hotel we had to give it a try.

My Husband and I visited Rani Restaurant on Friday 15th May for my birthday. We had looked at several reviews and glad we chose this one. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful in view of the restaurant being very busy. We had virtually no time to wait before being shown to our table. We ordered Prawn Puri and Sheek... More

Was in the 'toon' for the weekend. Decided to go for a curry fairly late (11'ish) but we're met with friendly attentive staff and prompt service. Coming from Birmingham I'm a bit spoilt when it comes to balti's but this was lovely. Sizzling and flavoursome. Would definitely go back next time up.

Went with friends after drinks on Wed night. I'm not very big fun of spicy food so waiter was polite enough to explain my choices. I must admit I did enjoy every single recommendation and found the value for money excellent. Next table was a group of drunk people but still waiter was very polite even if he had to... More

My husband and I turned up around 11pm on a Saturday, without having booked a table, and we were received with a smile and promptly seated. Service was attentive but not too much on your face. Food was served quickly and it was overall very tasty. Price was adequate to the food quality. We would definitely come back if we... More

Arrived I'm Newcastle at 11pm (on a Wednesday) after a long drive. Most places we came across where either shut or on the verge, until we came across Rani. The waiter was friendly and attentive, explaining all the dishes and matching them to our western palettes. The place had just one other table of guests and they at no point... More
