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!
Very good and lovely food. Would love to go back there very soon with family and friends the service was very good and the were lovely 😊
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.
