I’ve had some amazing Indian… admittedly not in India, but in California (next best thing). The best Indian is always so addicting I crave it weekly… the problem being that Detroit area Indian just isn’t quite as good. I was relieved and happy to find Rangoli Indian Grill Express in Sterling Heights. I passed by it several times without going in- it’s in a strip mall by the AMC Forum 30 movie theatre and looks less than appetizing from the outside. But one day I had a craving and entered, and now “Indian and a movie” is a coined phrase in my lexicon. My first order became my “every time” order. My movie buddy and I order the lamb wrap (with both spicy sauce and mint sauce, wrapped in a freshly baked naan-like bread!) and the chicken kadai, my usual Indian standby. My favorite part of their chicken kadai is the fact that they don’t give me the “American version” of spicy. There’s a real kick to both of these dishes, which have so many more flavors than just “hot” going on. It’s my new favorite since Ashoka changed owners a while back. Don’t let the looks fool you. It looks like fast food and claims to be ‘express,’ but in reality it’s slow the way a sit down restaurant is. Don’t go for atmosphere, go because once you taste it you’ll have it on your list of places to return. Important note: don't get your hopes up on a Monday because they are closed. Those heartbreakers. :)
