About Rani

While there are Indian restaurants in London that cater for all types and stripes, one can sometimes be bewildered by the sheer scope of the options on the table when picking between them before a night out. The Bangla cafes of Brick Lane are always a draw, as are the South Indian specialists of Southall, while the Pakistani tandoori grills are never a bad choice though. If you’re looking for an Indian restaurant in North London that truly reflects the authentic taste of one area, look no further than Rani on Long Lane in Finchley. They are the longest established (and probably the best) Gujarati curry house in the city, and their menu is packed with exactly the sort of regional delicacy that you’re looking for. Try their banana methi, with plenty of fenugreek, or the lilotri sak, with aubergines and broad beans. Even better, Rani is 100% meat free, making them not only a great Gujarati eatery, but also one of the best Indian vegetarian restaurant in North London. Book a table now.

The food and service at Rani's are always excellent. The buffet has a good selection of cold starters, including excellent onion bhajis, and hot mains - lovely pilau rice with cashews and a delicious aubergine and potato curry, among several other delicious curries and lots of chutneys (I love the coriander chutney). Price for the buffet is very reasonable. I really love that they have such clear labelling for food allergies/intolerances. It makes things so much easier. And there's plenty to satisfy the gluten free, vegans in our family. (One thing I wonder though, is why there are no poppadoms on the buffet? - but there are poppadoms on the menu) Rani's is a family favourite of ours!

The restaurant is spacious and comfortable. The staff were attentive and helpful. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. We had the buffet lunch with Masala Dosas that were cooked fresh and brought to the table. We will all certainly return.

We like Rani's a lot. Have been there several times. My sister, who has many Indian friends, says it is not a good as home cooked Indian food but that is to be expected. The staff are efficient and kind and the price is reasonable. The atmosphere is relaxed. The place looks nice. I am happy with the food and there is a good range between very spicy and very mild. And there are plenty of vegan options.

Fabulous choice of fresh delicious food. So nice to get the all-you-can-eat buffet - loads of starters, dal, main courses, lovely fresh fruit salad all for £15. Friendly, helpful staff. There were a couple of large parties making it very noisy and a long queue for food - but can't blame the restaurant for being popular! And the waitress was thoughtful enough to commiserate with us on the noise. Easy to park - even on a Saturday night. Loved it.

What a wonderful experience. we partook in the Sunday Buffet and one of the diners had religious restrictions. Very attentive staff and they were willing to go out of their way to accommodate our requests. Very authentic food. Good service. Will definitely dine here again.

Good ambiance and a warm greeting from the staff although we arrived n an icy snowy day. Very attentive waitress, perhaps too much. Food pleasant but not startling but a good combination of soft and crispy dishes. ood not exckting. We were a large group of vegans, vegetarians and carnivores and there were sufficient dishes to give everyone a good choice

Food was hot, tasty and a fair amount of choices. Clean place with friendly staff but it was very quiet on this occasion. Usually it is fairly busy. Price is middle range.

The food was good the waiter was wonderful but I think for vegetarian food this was a bit on the expensive side which was a bit disappointing. I've been to other Indian cuisine restaurants which really give value for money.
