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!

We booked a table for three on Saturday night at 7pm. The restaurant is easy to find, on the corner, down in the Quayside area, about 10 mins walk from the train station. It was quiet when we arrived but soon got busy, so we're glad we booked. The service was friendly and attentive when we arrived, but tailed off... More

First time here we had not booked it was around 9pm. Asked for a table for 4 they told us to wait at bar, we waited around 5 minutes then we were led to a table. However the table was not set and rather a tight squeeze to get in. We then ordered drinks the wine came but no glasses.... More

first visit to Newcastle in decades. wandering around on a summer evening & spotted Rani. Fisrt customer in so quiet. Had the Mirchi Piaza with pilau rice and a chapatti. All delicious and thoroughly enjoyed. Quiet, polite service. Now on my list of curry houses - well worth the walk from the Gateshead side of the Tyne.

Food was quite good. Service a little slow. The draft soft drinks are poor. Also, the waiter tried to take our card away due to no signal for payment machine. That wasn't happening, so beware.
