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 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

We usually visit on a Friday evening and the restaurant gets busier as the evening progresses. We've never had to book before but if you are eating... More

I use to have dinner in this restaurant when I'm in Newcastle: the restaurant is nice and clean and the food is definitely good! When you go during the week you don't need to book. You can ask the personnel for advice and they are also available in adapting plates to your needs. Very good!
