“Nice atmosphere but poor food taste!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I am from Pakistan and you can say that Indian/Pakistani is my home cuisine. After reading so many good reviews we decided to go there at the Friday Brunch. We were utterly disappointed!! The food taste was just really really poor! Except for the appetizers the food is not even near the authentic Indian taste! We ordered Chicken biryani which was tasteless, Lamb Bhunna which was too sweet and the lamb was stiff, one shrimp one (dont remember the name) and it tasted awful! For dessert we ordered Ras Malai which is my favorite and I was shocked to find it really chewy and rubber like! Thats not Ras Malai at all..!!!
To be honest a dhabba (street restaurent) has much better food taste than this one! We will definitely NOT recommend this to our friends! :(

“A la cart buffet - makes the buffet experience a first class experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

On a bored afternoon i bought some group vouchers for places nearby our new home - not thinking much about the actual place BUT then i went to Rangoli - and it was such an awesome experience

The maitre d takes you to your reserved seat (with group on you had to pre book), where you are given menus - the choice is not as huge as a typical buffet but i felt the aim was quality over quantity
]the kitchen made each order as it arrived so not batch cooking which meant each dish was purposely flavourful

the food portions that arrive at your table where enough for one so you could happily order the whole menu or re-order something you enjoyed

each dish was unique and tasty
and i loved the option of ordering whatever you wanted -yet still knowing large amounts of food won't go to waste at this buffet

“Food, Ambiance & Service- Simply Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

It was my first visit to Rangoli and I must say I would definitely wish to visit there again. I went there with my parents and found the place and ambiance perfect for a dinner. The food scores a complete 10 in terms of taste and presentation... I relished the starters and main course served as it had the perfect Indian flavor. My recommendation would be Veg. biryani, achari paneer and carrot brownie, that i simply loved. A special thanks to Chef Raheja for offering mouth-watering food and Sanjeetha for being a lovely hostess..... :)
A Delightful experience indeed!!
