    Fantastic buffet with a great chioce of vegetarian Indian food. Interesting choice of the addition of an ice cream machine! My only 'complaint' is that the buffet is so good that we rarely experienced the main menu. Saw a dosa coming out though and it looked amazing!

    Think is the tastiest food we have ever eaten out, so nice . The food is different from the usual currys we have out, the tikka paneer was a revelation. The dip was with the mixed bhaji starter was really moorish, ended up finishing it with a spoonful straight in the mouth. Really nice that everything on menu was vegetarian. Chilli garlic mushrooms were also a great taste. Only problem was our eyes were bigger than our bellies. Can't wait to go back again.

    Food was cold, starters and main brought out together. Bhaji was dry. No yoghurt suggested or offered with paratha . Place smelt of bleach as we entered.

    The restaurant was packed with diners enjoying themselves. There's such a huge variety of dishes on the buffet menu to suit everyones pallette and at a reasonable price too. I highly recommend you try this place once and you'll want to go back for more. Make sure you book in advance for festive days it gets booked up very quickly. Thank you Rani restaurant for making our Diwali lunch so very enjoyable 😋

    Buffet at Rani is always enjoyable but the currys this time were very similar in taste and intensity. Ingredients were different but taste was the same. Noise level was very high but explained by the fact that it was Diwali so several large family groups

    Overpriced, reheated, burned food. Not fresh. Not tasty. Minimal service. All food here is served to make it easy for THEM. Eg it’s obvious that they buy frozen samosas, parathas etc and then just reheat. The naan is quite hard/stale because it is ready bought. The dosas are filled with heavy food and not at all crisp. They may as well be wraps. But they do have the nerve to add a SERVICE charge. There are better places to eat lunch even ten doors away eg Mahavir.

    I booked a table for 4 and even then I was asked to wait until a table was available. I didn’t mind waiting for 5-10 mins. But this took longer. I asked the owner to give me a table that was available for 5 people. He refused bluntly. My kids were starving. My husband tried talking to him but he would not budge. In the end we walked out without eating. Very poor

    We had the buffet as we were a large group and thought more practical then a la carte. Food was luke warm in and the undhiyu was bland and watery as was the potato and aubergine shaak. The flavours similar with a watery tomato base. Not authentic. Similarly the samosa stuffing was bland and pastry looked shop bought. I would expect better in an authentic Gujarati restaurant. Staff very attentive and cleared plates regularly. In summary - a disappointing visit after a long journey. Unlikely to return

    Revisited after having moved away from London almost 20 years ago and glad to say the food was as good as I remember it when we used to go regularly. It was a bit quiet, I assume from people being cautious about COVID, but deserves to be busy every night! I wish it was nearer so I could visit regularly but will have to content myself by visiting when I can.
