Beautiful food, lovely restaurant!!!

I came here a few days ago with some friends of mine, we were greeted at the door warmly by a staff member, then asked if we had booked which we hadn't, there were only four of us, and it was a last minute decision to go, but we were seated as if it were no trouble which was amazing!!... read more

I am a massive fan of Indian food eating it up and down the country as I travel with work and I can safely say that Rivaaz did not fail to impress me! The menu was varied offering a full range of traditional Indian and Bangladeshi dishes as well as some particularly lovely specialty dishes. The food tasted divine and... More

lymington is a nice town on the south coast, centred round what was originally im sure a quaint harbour reached by a cobbled street. The indian restaurant Rivaaz, is at the top end of the high street into st Thomas street away from the harbour and railway station, and unlikely to be seen by tourists. believe me, its worth the...

Upon looking at the menu we were astonished by the prices! I know you... More

Indian restaurant. Clean and tidy but lacking some atmosphere. Service adequate. A big variety of menu items. Food tasty but not unique

The service was as usual to a high standard we eat here frequently. food was excellent not a typical curry restaurant. The only aspect I do not like is the corridor effect

Having been let down by another Lymington restaurant we went to Rivaaz on a friend's recommendation. Well...I'm now passing on the recommendation to everyone I know! The restaurant was almost full on a Wednesday which for me, tells one everything they need to know!!

My wife and I stumbled into the Rivaaz restaurant without looking on TripAdvisor. Having now eaten there, I was surprised when I went to go and review the place to find it with such good ratings. The menu is good, with a large selection of dishes, including the classics, but also including a large selection of more unusual dishes. We... More

A very good Indian restaurant with a very friendly and welcoming service. The restaurant was recommended to us by work colleagues and we would not be disappointed. Although we had not booked still found space for us. The food was excellent, can recommend the shared tandoori platter along with chicken harali and prawn achari which had a kick, accompanied by...
