My husband and I are on a short stay in Lymington and just came across this small fronted restaurant. The menu looked good and so we made a reservation. We were pleased we had as all the tables were taken and the restaurant was full of happy chattering people. The service was prompt and welcoming. We had delicious sharing starters... More

We've never eaten in the restaurant itself, because our 9-year-old daughter hasn't yet warmed to the attractions of spicy food, but my wife and I regularly get takeaway meals from Rivaaz, and they're always superb. Of course we have our favourites, but we've never been disappointed with any of our selections. I'd particularly recommend selecting from the "Rivaaz Specialities" section... More

Went to Rivaaz with my teenage grandsons and family. The grandsons love the food and think it the best Indian they have been to. I can only agree. Tried the new specials which were delicious and full of flavour. If you are looking for a first class Indian meal, well served by friendly staff then you must try Rivaaz..

I have been to Rivaaz numerous times - for birthdays, celebratory meals and even just catching up with old friends. I can say with confidence (in how much my stomach has grown the past few years) that Rivaaz is the best Indian restaurant of the many that I have visited in terms of food quality, service, value for money, and...

Walked in on busy Friday night without a reservation but the friendly manager squeezed us in. The meal was unbelievable, very very good, so much flavour and the squid exactly right. Will definitely come back again. Friendly staff also and very reasonably priced.

My boyfriend and I decided to try this restaurant after reading the positive trip advisor reviews. The style of the restaurant was contemporary and similar to some of the others we have been to before. The food was generally good quality, notably the meat which was tasty and tender in my boyfriends slow cooked curry. Though I would say the... More

Not much to look at from outside, but it is very nice inside. The food was great. We are at both Indian restaurants in lymington this week, and although both were good, this one had the edge. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and huge quantities; great service. One minor quibble, some food is described as sweet - for our taste it was too sweet but that wouldn't put us off going there again. Excellent value
