About Rana's Restaurant

Proprietor Gopi Singh knows his way around an Indian kitchen, and this nous is proudly on show at what you could very comfortably call his Stirling restaurant, Rana’s. Recently refurbished, Rana’s Friars Street address is all the more the ideal location for a cosy dinner date or a large gathering of friends, family or colleagues. Located in the city centre just minutes from Stirling railway station, the castle and the Thistle Centre shopping mall, it’s frequented by locals and visitors alike – bookings are advised, especially for large groups. Covering many a South Asian culinary base, Rana’s menu is clearly laid out chaat, lasan, poori pancakes and mixed platters to start through to specialty curries that takes their cues from recipes culled from the Punjab to the Goan coast.

Had a lovely meal, staff very friendly and didn’t have to wait too long to be served. The restaurant was busy which is always a good sign. If up in Stirling again would def go back

Decided to go to Rana's on recommendation of a friend. It was a lovely meal and lovely surroundings. I think it has recently had a refit and everything looks very new. Sometimes I feel the decor in restaurants lets them down but Rana's is very nice. Excellent menu and everyone, there were 5 of us, enjoyed their meal and said they would want to go again. I would highly recommend Rana's as the food, staff and surroundings were excellent.

Great location as close to the railway station. Greeted warmly on arrival. Good choice of menu. Asked for Goan fish for a starter and they accommodated us. Good menu choice and waiter very attentive. Would highly recommend. Had a delicious meal and followed by large portion of Galub Jamin.Would definitely go again.

Superb food and great staff, it is always a pleasure to dine at Ranas. Try the house specials, they are tastey and the garlic nans are the best I have had anywhere
