Vancouver: Located at the corner of Granville Street and 11th Avenue in Vancouver is Rangoli restaurant.  Rangoli meaning painted prayers of India.  This establishment reflect the characteristics of the ultimate in luxury and sophistication eatery.  Service is first class.  The physical attributes and design elements are extraordinary in every manner.  This is not your typical Indian restaurant or a typical Indian meal.

The fundamental hallmarks of this level are to meticulously serve and exceed all customers expectation while maintaining an impeccable standard of excellence Many personalized services enhance an unmatched level of comfort in dinning, and for the same reason the line-up outside this restaurant gets bigger and bigger every time one plans to go out and dine, tell me honestly how many Indian restaurants you know that have to wait up to two hours to even get seated?

All the spices, all the bean salads are sprouted daily in their kitchen on daily basis.  The owner Vikram Vij who was born in Punjab and raised in Bombay has started working at two well known restaurants which is Bishops and Raincity Grill, before starting his own business in 1994.  Since him and his wife Meenu got into this business they never looked back.  They owned the Vijs and next to Vijs is Rangoli, which is only open for lunch and appetizers.
