We had a fantastic experience at Rangoli. I already knew that the food is good, and this time wasn't an exception. The service was superb. We learned that all the beautiful lamps are hand made and imported from India. This detail clearly demonstrates the passion of the owner for their work that is transferred to the food, the drinks, and the ambience. I certainly recommend Rangoli highly. I'm sure you won't regret it.

Excellent food and excellent service. The food is very authentic and is made to meet your needs and wishes. Portions are substantial. The owner is always there and always concerned that you have a very positive dining experience. He will gladly explain how the food is prepared and will make sure that your dietary needs are met. Rangoli is a dependable, enjoyable place to dine and I look forward to my next visit.

It's nice to have authentic Indian food north of Curry Hill. A great place for delicious, flavorful Indian dishes with a much broader menu than most places down town. Waiters and staff are very friendly.

The food at Rangoli goes above and beyond what you’d expect from Indian cuisine in a veritable hole-in-the-wall to something innovative and unexpected. From handling classics such as chicken makhani to forays into dishes with homemade peanut sauce, Rangoli delivers on many levels.

My only negative comment about Rangoli is that we were never offered tea or coffee before the check was brought to the table. This has happened several times and so perhaps tea/coffee is simply not available.

Otherwise, the food is delicious, the service is impeccable and the restaurant is very quiet, making conversation a pleasure.

The food was very tasty and the service quite attentive. This was the first time we actually dined there as we typically order for pick-up. The food is even better.

We had an early dinner reservation and were seated promptly. Overall the food was very good, starting with the vegetable samosa and main courses of chicken tikka masala, lamb and duck curry specials. Sauces were all tasty and they provided a large portion of naan along with rice. Service was timely and they never made us feel rushed even after clearing our table. This is a very good neighborhood spot to have and I would go back.

My mom and I dined here on our annual December trip to NYC. This place is excellent and the food is truly exquisite. It’s definitely some of the best vegetarian Indian cuisine we’ve ever had in the city, which is saying a lot considering we’ve tried a new Indian restaurant nearly every year in the past 15+ years we’ve been visiting Manhattan. I think it’s safe to say we will not hesitate to return here again, especially with the fantastic service, staff and management!

Very nice experience. Owner introduced himself and obviously takes pride in his restaurant . Food was hot, fresh and delicious. Very good prices. Service was friendly and good. A bit surprised that there was no papadum bread; most Indian restaurant give you this to snack on. We would definitely return.

The worst service ever. They had just 2 persons waiting on all the tables (>20 tables). We had to leave the meal in middle. And the food was also not great. They served samosas without chutney and had to wait for 15 minutes to get it. Don't recommend the place and would never ever visit the place again.

Good food, service was at times a bit slow.
Appetizers were especially tasty - samosa and spicy gobi
Food was fresh, asked for food to be mild, but perhaps very mild as indicated on check was too mild.
Portions were generous and naan was well made.
