Description: Facing the sea, Rangoli shares with its older brother - indian restaurant Bembì - the same concept of Indian food. Besides gathering all the virtues of his predecessor, Rangoli has a number of distinctive features: new and unique dishes, attractive decoration full of carefully chosen decorative pieces from India, a bar area where one can sip on a drink and, to top it all - a terrace with the Mediterranean view. Rangoli is the most ancient traditional decorative folk art of India and a symbol of religious and cultural beliefs. It is considered an important part of our spiritual tradition. Rangoli figures and patterns are colourful decorative designs on courtyards during Hindu festivals and is meant as a sacred welcoming area for the gods and guests. These ancient rituals have been passed on through the ages, from one generation to the next, thus keeping both the art form and the tradition alive. The purpose of rangolis is to bring good luck. We in Rangoli strive to present to you the culinary art of India which is as vibrant, traditional and colourful as a Rangoli and bring to you recipes which have transcended through generations. We welcome you to try the Rangoli experience!

Rangoli is a very comfortable and relaxed restaurant. We had the tasting menu and a bottle of wine plus som water and payed 75 €, very reasonable prised. The food was a bit spice, but very good and there was a lot of it! Nice nan, different sauces and lovely starters. We got a table imidiately without reservations.

“Excellent Food with a 5 star hospitality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Rangoli is the best restaurant in terms of food and hospitality. The owner Mr Anand was a very warm and friendly person. Helped us in chosing the signature dishes which was to our palate. We ordered Ragda pattice and Lasuni Jhinga for starters which was absolutely perfect. For Main course we asked him n to his suggestion we ordered Zafrani chicken briyani and Malabari Prawns curry. The curry was just awesome. Never had this type of authentic curry even in India. The Zafrani Biryani too was par excellence. We were there to celebrate my husband Kamal's Birthday on May 10th and were very happy that we chose to come to Rangoli to dine which has a perfect ambience, located just across the Barcelona Beach. When he heard that we were there to celebrate his birthday we had a surprise waiting at the end of our meal, when he brought us a beautiful icecream cake with a candle for him to cut and celebrate his brithday, also took snaps for us. Will always remeber this kind gesture Mr Anand. Thank you for ur kind hospitality and making this occasion so special for us.
We also wish you could open a restaurant in London too for us to have some great food.

“Elegant Restaurant - great curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Very near the beach, this is a modern, well-designed restaurant with staff who are friendly, know their business (and speak very good English). But, more to the point, the food was very good - they produce something which we British would recognise as curry which, after a week of Barcelona's delightful but hardly heavily spiced food, was just what we needed.
The staff are really willing to help - they were quite happy to make sure our starter of selected samosas etc to share was vegetarian, and when ordering our mains they made sure they knew how hot we wanted the dishes.
My prawn curry was just right - an interesting sauce, a little thicker than you might find in Britain, was subtly different from the straight tomato / curry fish sauce I've had before but really worked - and the prawns were plentiful - one prawn provided three mouthfuls and the dish was packed with them. My wife said her dahl stew was perfectly spiced. Put alongside this perfectly cooked naan, and a few bottles of cobra beer and it was a very satisfying meal - authentically 'Indian'.
The place isn't cheap - all of this came to 80 euros - but we were happy to pay it, and will certainly return next time we're in Barcelona.

“Nice restaurant in a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

We googled the restaurant before visiting as there were a few to choose from but we liked the reviews on this and we really enjoyed the food, good quality chicken but not a huge amount of it which was a shame. Staff were friendly and prices were quite good. I had a tikka which was spicer than at home so swapped it with my boyfriend and had a butter chicken which was also nice. Location was good as by the beach and marina,easy enough to reach on the metro and just a short walk down towards the beach opposite a spar.Have recommended it to my mum when she visits and would go back if I was to return.
