“Food, Ambiance & Service- Simply Fabulous!”
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!!

“More than excelent service and food”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I have visited so many Indian Authentic restaurant in town which include Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ras al khaima, but Rangoli is one of the awesome Indian restaurant in term of their friendly services, excellent food quality, pleasant ambiance. The staff in Rangoli is well trained for providing memorable dinning experience and the choices of dishes in menu is really a mouth watering. If we look value for money which is beyond my expectation. Food quality is far batter than some of well known Indian restaurant and prices are very pocket saving. I will visit Rangoli upon every visit to Abu Dhabi and will recommend to all my friend.

“Phenomenal, incredible and just simply sensational.”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Words cannot describe how incredible my experience was at this restaurant... But I will try anyway!
We went for the Friday buffet which is based on an 'a la carte' menu thus ensuring that the dishes were always served hot and fresh.
We particularly enjoyed the butter chicken and the seafood broth though everything we ordered was finely prepared and delicious.
We loved the extremely friendly staff who went out of their way to make sure our dining experience was of the highest quality considering it was our first time at the restaurant.
A special mention goes to Maneesh who has to be one of the nicest and friendliest restaurant managers we have ever met!!
Would definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone!!!!
