Rangoli India Restaurant, in the heart of San Jose, offers sophisticated Indian cuisine in an upscale, elegant atmosphere. Come taste our delicious Indian cuisine and see why we are a 2013 Michelin Guide Recommended restaurant . We’ve won countless awards since opening in 2006, including Talk of the Town, Best of San Jose and South Bay Accent’s 200 Top Dining Spots.
When opening Rangoli, we set out to create an elegant Indian restaurant that offered artistic, creative versions of Northern and coastal Indian dishes. Our name, “Rangoli,” is drawn from a popular Indian style of art featuring patterns and designs in rich, jewel-like colors. Our restaurant is decorated in these vibrant hues, with Sanskrit script gracing the walls. Our interior welcomes you with private dining alcoves and fresh orchids on each table. Our attentive, gracious service invites you to linger and enjoy your dining experience.
Our food is unusual and high quality, served in generous portions at budget-friendly prices. Start with our small plates, which give you the chance to sample our unique style. Try the Gulab-Mary Naan, almond pesto with rosemary and asiago cheese, on tandoori naan, or the Honey Cauliflower, crisp-fried cauliflower coated with sweet Indo-Chinese sauce. We promise a rounded experience at our restaurant. Rangoli’s exceptional wine list features wines selected by our sommelier, Sonu Singh, to pair especially well with Indian food.
For your entrée, customers rave about our chicken tikka masala, tender grilled chicken in creamy, brightly flavorful sauce. We specialize in seafood, including lobster korma, lobster tails in a rich, béchamel-style sauce, and prawn saag, tiger prawns cooked with baby spinach, ginger and garlic. Vegetarians are not left out, with many vegetarian options to choose from. Try the baingan bhartha, tandoori-smoked eggplant and green pea curry, with one of our fresh-baked naan breads. Whatever you choose, you will experience the best Indian food and most beautiful ambience San Jose has to offer.
Be sure to visit us at lunchtime for our lunch buffet, an impressive array of vegetarian and meat curries, naan, rice dishes, salads and desserts. We are open every day for dinner and on Monday through Friday for lunch. On Sundays, we offer a sumptuous brunch buffet with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine.
