Rangoli is an East Indian restaurant owned by famed Vancouver chef Vikram Vij. Mr. Vij started out with his fine-dining restaurant Vij’s in 1994. Ten years later, due to the fanatic popularity of Vij’s, he opened up Rangoli right next door. Rangoli serves a simpler, cheaper menu than its neighbor, and also serves as a market where you can purchase packaged meals and authentic spices.

Here’s what we ate:

Black Chickpea and Onion Cakes in Coconut Curry
With rice Pilaf

Lamb, Chickpeas and Potatoes in Yogurt-Date Curry
with Naan Bread

I really like this place. The food is tasty, the prices are reasonable, and most importantly, you don’t have to wait for an hour to get a table.
