“Best Local Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We have been eating at Rangoli for many years now and love its authenticity, it is always well patronized by the local Indian community. They have a mix of Indian dishes and chinese indian dishes. The staff are very helpful and always happy to make suggestions for your selection. Great for big groups or couples dinner. Its family friendly and well priced for a night out.

“Very nice food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This place is really very good. I am from mumbai so maybe have a soft corner for this as they specialise in mumbai curries. The taste is very authentic. If you are looking for curries that have REAL taste and not have only cream in them then you should try this place. Maybe they need to manage the timing for each table and not have people if they cannot put food in front of the customers. So choose a weeks day i guess haha.

“Not the best”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Now I can't say I'm an expert, but I can say I am a curry adict (as are many poms!). I love my curries - and eat out at least once a week. So when a frind invited us to drive down to Ti Rakau Drive and try a new restaurant, we obviously jumped at the opportunity.
Now its quite a way out of central Auckland - so to drive there is an effort. Is it worth it? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm
Though its fairly easy to find, you have to make a u-turn (and like us get lost at least once) to get into the car park. The restaurant itself is big and bright - so ambiance is a possible 2 out of 10 only. There were a few Indians eating there, so that was a good sign.
But service - the local tortoise zoomed past the waiter...... Slow was not the word. I actually had to get up and go to the bar to order my drink as the waitress wa chatting with the barman...... We ordered a nan bread as a starter - 20 minutes later we were told it would come with the main meal. So we had to hold the mains to eat what we wanted to start with. As to the mains - well, flavour was OK to two of the four ordered - but the other two were actually tragic.

Would we go back? Never.........
