visiting family in Newcastle, we were recommended the Rani Indian restaurant and were not disappointed: the food is very good - ample portions, tasty, not as heavy as some Indian meals, and the prices are reasonable. Only complaint - voiced by some other reviewers - is that service is very leisurely: we had a table booked for 8.30, arrived on the dot, waited a good 20 minutes for our table (no order taken meanwhile, no drinks offered); we then waited another 10-15 minutes before the full order was taken; and the food took another 20-25 minutes (so, we started serious eating a good 45-50 minutes after arriving. True, it was a Saturday night, but the restaurant is not that large and did not seemed crammed to the gunnels). We were in no rush; and the service was, if leisurely, amiable; so this was no big deal. But if you are pressed for time, be warned.

Visited on Saturday the 3rd of November, arrived at the restaurant at about 10-15 pm, we were seated more or less straight away, the restaurant inside is really nice,service so so, the food itself though is pretty average, poppadoms and chutneys ok, main courses ok but thats about it. The Rani is not a patch on some of the other indian restaurants in newcastle, i wouldn't go back again as there are much better eating places on the quayside and around the city itself.

We asked if they had a table for 10, the manager said yes but it will be 10 Mins. Ok no problem, we ordered drinks, waited a good while for those, then was shown to a table that we would have had to sit on each others lap. Asked for another table and they said it would be 10 Mins. Ok again waited and waited and waited. 40 mins later asked for drinks bill and was glad to get out.
Don't go there service is crap.

We walke in to the restaurant. The staff were very rude. Since we had already walked in, we ordered two lagers. We were not comfortable to walk out. We had couple of sips of the lager and could not stand the rude attitude of the manager any more. we asked for the bill, he threw it on us. We paid the bill for beers which we did not drink and walked out, Never again will i get into an indian restaurant( It is not an indian restaurant any how, the claim to be indian)
