I have read hellyeah81, N sghandi posts and must say that I disagree wholeheartedly! I decided to try both Rang and Ambassador restaurant before writing this review. I've lived in Boston all my life, and consider myself a conissieur of Indian cuisine. I have been to Rang and Ambassdor several times, to give it a fair trial. while I don?t live near Rang, is a few miles away, I would drive to Rang in a heartbeat. Funny you say the papad came burn, b/c there is no way to burn papad, every time I go to Rang, the papad is fresh and tasty and the chutneys did not come at an extra cost; and who in their right mind eats sliced onions with papad, I eat slice onions with my food, specially chole bature, which is finger licking good at RANG!!! And yes, anything extra should be charged.. At Rang I was charged around $1.50. At ambassador, I got charged almost $4.00!! now, that is a rip off!!! At Rang, I ordered the Saag Panneer, and my friend ordered their lamb special. The lamb was well cooked, moist, savory with all of its juices, and just delicious!!! My saag was amazing, it had a nice consistency, and the panneer, was not undercooked- how can you screw up paneer, its like messing up mozzarella cheese when you make bruschetta! I love lassis! Period, and I have yet to find a place that makes it like rang. All in all, I love the crowd at Rang, the service is prompt, and the wait staff knows me on a first name basis. They know what I like to eat and always make feel unique by giving me the attention necessary for a pleasant dining experience. This service is unique to Rang. This is much more than I ever got at ambassador whose saag paneer was creamy and watery! I will never go back to Ambassador, but Rang, is my favorite Indian restaurant in all of boston! Nothing comes close to their service, food and ambiance! I just love it. Most importantly, they have very reasonable prices considering the economic turmoils we are facing. Great food on a budget!!
Pros: Ambience, parking, service, location
