It was a free onion bhaji sample that got me through the front door of Rangrez; an Indian restaurant like any other in a line of unassuming shop fronts. But one steaming hot, tasty and perfectly fried bhaji was all it took to have me thinking I may have found my new favourite Indian local. The chicken tikka sealed the deal - truly the best I've ever eaten - while a crispy and light naan proved the team at Rangrez know a thing or two about fine Indian cuisine. My waiter tells me the recipes are what you'd find in a five star restaurant in his homeland and still he's keen to know what I think of each one. While the menu features all the traditional fare it's made with the chef's own twist, particularly a great use of fresh herbs to add a wonderful zing. This isn't stodgy Indian, thick naan and mountains of boiled rice that you might find elsewhere in London - the dishes are light, carefully presented and served with serious pride. Rangrez is a family affair and you're truly made welcome the moment you enter. Having opened in November 2013, Rangrez is slowly drawing in some of the hoards of Hammersmith residents who dash by each day on this heavy pedestrian strip. Yet there remain plenty of empty tables behind its frosted glass windows. That's lucky for me, I can always get a seat, though soon enough I expect Rangrez won't be needing free bhaji samples to lure customers.
Hate to be rude - but it was the worst curry I have ever eaten. Not only did I think that, but the other for people I was dining with also thought that. I had a chicken sag and the other four had Kormas. It was as if they used some sort of weird thick paste that tastes unbelievably cheap. The rice tasted / looked like a boil in the bag - not quite cooked properly sort of rice. THey are nice people, service was OK - the toilets are rubbish and as you walk out you can see all of there pre-made curry sources sitting on a shelf which isn't even in the kitchen, let alone a fridge... Really really, the worst curry I have ever eaten. Sorry.
