“Excellent food, great restaurant, warm atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

The best Indian restaurant in Boston. We come for dinner or lunch at least once a month for 16 years. The food is absolutely delicious and service is superb. Highly recommend!

“Pricy for Ok Indian Food”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

Two couples dined here before going to NT Live at the Cooledge Corner Theater. The food was ok, small servings, expensive for what you get. The only memorable item was their Mango Lassi.

The staff was helpful and the ambience was very nice.

“Very flavorful Indian cuisine in pleasant atmosphere”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

The Rani platter of four different appetizers was surprisingly varied and tasty, as were the fresh-tasting coriander and onion chutneys. Excellent saag paneer with large hunks of cheese, perfectly cooked jasmine rice, and a better than average glass of house Chardonnay completed a very good meal at a decent price. The staff was welcoming and efficient. Nicely done minimalist decor.

“Surprise gem at Coolidge Corner”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Rani was very surprising for me as I didn't expect it to be as good as it was! The food was outstanding and fresh. Also, the flavors are different and superior to a lot of other Indian restaurants in Boston. The restaurant itself is beautiful and well decorated. Prices are very middle of the road for excellent food, this place is my new favorite!

“Good dosa”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

This place does a great job with South Indian specialties - enjoyed the masala dosa today. Quick service, reasonably priced.
