My Birthday Lunch at Rangoli

Written By: Robert Cox

I love Indian food and am happy to report that New Rochelle has two first rate Indian restaurants downtown. We parked a half block away so getting here was no problem. The lunch buffet is well stocked with lamb curry, chicken tikka masala, vegetable curry, aloosag, a spicy tomato soup. Cool. As i was writing this they brought a sizzling plate of chicken tandoori.

Service was excellent.

Our waiter Joe tells me that the lunch buffets is weekends only — during the week they have a lunch menu and, of course, in the evenings they have a full menu. The lunch buffet is a prix fixe of $12.95. Kids age 5 – 9 are half-price which means parents looking for an upscale dining experience can get a great lunch for about 2 bucks more than a McDonald’s Happy Meal. Given the quality of the food, that makes Ragnoli’s weekend lunch buffet a hidden gem for budget conscious parents.
