Location and contact

Rangoli is a lifestyle restaurant serving North and South Indian cuisine in a contemporary setting, complemented with a modern presentation and an extensive wine and beverage list. Mingled with the tinkling and jingling of chic tableware, the freshly cooked dishes from the Tandoor and the aroma from the Show Kitchen will transform you to a faraway location. Rangoli's perfect combination of luxury and simplicity will leave you a feeling of warmth, underlined by the use of earthy colours typical and characteristic of this exotic destination.

Nouvelle Indian cuisine - beautifully presented and compared with other dining options within AED not too overpriced. The seating was confortable and the ambiance good, if a little dark. Overall - a good dining option.More

After being let down by the quality of food offered at our hotel, we stumbled upon the Rangoli restaurant after hearing some good reviews online. Sadly, we were mistaken. The restaurant has a quiet ambience with dim lighting (a little too dim in my opinion)....More

A small menu yet again proves a great indicator of quality. Seafood pakora is excellent, and the rest of our meal matched that. Great service, just the usual complaint that the lighting is too subdued! Not cheap, but definitely worth it.More

First of all, I must admit that I love Rotana Yas Hotel. It's cosy lobby, tasty sweet, Speedy WiFi and all its restaurant. But, Rangoli is perfect in term of food, view, service, atmosphere..... I feel the menu needs more options.
