Rani Indian Restaurant and Bar: An Authentic Indian Cuisine Experience

I never thought that my first authentic Indian cuisine experience will be in Kanagawa, Japan. There are lots of Indian Restaurant in the Philippines but I haven’t tried eating there once.

Me at Rani Indian Restaurant

On my second day in Japan, my fiancé brought me in Rani, an Indian Restaurant and Bar situated in Yamato City, Kanagawa. Upon entering, we were greeted by the staffs and settled ourselves near the television which played a very weird and creepy cartoon series, seriously, kids cannot watch it. I wonder why they had that kind of cartoon there; my fiancé seemed to be entertained though.

There were few people eating that time. We ordered curry which I forgot the name as they all looked the same; I think I ordered a seafood curry with level 1 spiciness. While waiting for the food to be served, I was curious about the naan bread so I went near the kitchen and watched these two men as they make it.

It smelled so good.

Later they served the curry and the garlic and cheese Naan breads which taste terrific!!

To eat, just tear the bread and dip into the curry – same goes when you eat Skyflakes dip in a cup of coffee.

Later on, I couldn’t consume my curry anymore because of the big serving and there were no more naan. I was disappointed with myself when I realized that my curry was ¥ 1,050 or $13 per servings and I couldn’t consume it. Expensive.

After eating, I explored the restaurant and found some nice stuff for girls. I always adore Indian pants, soon I will buy them when traveling to India or Nepal.

They also sell some lady stuff like scarfs and Indian pants

We actually came back at Rani when his mom arrived and she loved it too, though like me, she wasn’t able to consume the curry as well. It tasted so good, only that the servings were big enough to fit our stomach.

    Yes there are lot more! The thing that I love about restaurants in Japan is that you dont get to choose where to eat, just enter and eat! All of them are good.
