New Fancy Indian Restaurant In Kuwait

The name is Rangoli, located in the Radisson SAS hotel.

We went to Rangoli just over a week ago, last thursday to be specific. we went only days after the restaurant’s opening, thats what we were told.

I liked the restaurant, the place was well designed and the amount of spending was evident once you look around at the decorations and the overall feel of the place. I liked how they built the restaurant just under the “alboom” restaurant (alboom means big ship), it was VERY smart of them to use the boom’s lower structure to divide the restaurant in half.. so when you’re in Rangoli you’ll notice the base of a ship splitting the dining area in half. (shown below)

Now the food. I don’t think you can go wrong with this place, we ordered many things from appetizers to main courses and we were all happy with our orders (or at least thats the vibe i got from the others πŸ˜› ). I’m gonna speak for myself now, I ate some battered chicken for starters, i don’t know its name, but it was goooood! and so was the kebab and some other stuff i forgot, they were all delicious. I didn’t know what to order for the main course so i went with the safest dish.. the lamb baryany. the baryany was great as well. their baryany is one of the best i’ve ever tried, for me it ranks 2nd place (1st place goes to Dubai’s Asha’s).

Now the only thing that really bothered us was the service. it was extremely slow. we waited a lot for the food to arrive, the appetizers and the main courses were too far apart. We complained to the waiter and he said that its their first “real” week, and they weren’t expecting so many customers (it was almost a full house) and that the kitchen was facing problems keeping up.. he also promised to do his best to not keep us waiting. (it would’ve been nicer/professional to bring us some drinks or things on the house while they kept us waiting, imo, but they didn’t).

Anyway, overall, I liked the place and I would definitely go back there soon and also would highly recommend it to my friends and family.

Talal feta7 wa7id isma noodle factory in the avenues, but nothing compares to The Noodle House! nothing! πŸ˜›

Shadi I had one horrible experience with the food in Asha’s. I always keep comparing it to Dubai’s. There its something else! their food is amazing, but i can’t say the same about Kuwait’s Asha’s. But you know, I went only once when it first opened, maybe i should give another chance πŸ™‚ welcome to the blog and thanks for the recommendation πŸ™‚
