The moment we stepped in, the bright colored ethnic decor set us in the right mood for a lavish Indian dinner. We were seated at a nice table but unfortunately the glaring lights from the construction site across the building were too much to bear. The hostess quickly re-seated us and all was fine after. We ordered the tasting menu... More

The food at Rang Mahal is really very good. I was super impressed by the starters and these showed how good the chef is. we have the softshell crab and scallops, both dishes excellent. Mains were great too, but not as special as the starters. The restaurant is expensive

This was one of my best meals in a restaurant ever! Traveling solo for business is not always conducive to enjoying a good meal. After all having good company is synonymous with good wine and good food! Wow was I surprised this evening when I chose to try this restaurant!

Great variety of food with great vegetarian options and non veg. Spice levels varied and we great for my palate and parents who typically would want a bit more. Flavors and presentations were an great upgrade and take on traditional food. I had macchli tikka which was slightly spicy but strangely moderated by the citrus reductions presented on the plate....

I make no apology for writing yet another rave review of this fantastic restaurant. It is the best Indian food you will get anywhere - the lady on the next table told my wife that she doesn't usually like Indian food but just couldn't believe how good it was - unlike anything she had experience before. So don't just take... More

What a stunning restaurant. Indian restaurants don't normally pull off the design element but this one has. Extremely reasonable pricing. The food is great. The choice is vast, well executed and perfectly presented. The desserts are excellent. Highly recommend anytime.
