After a hot day at a nearby beach we fancied a pint and a nice curry. From the Tripadvisor reviews Rivaaz seemed to fit the bill. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Coming from the curry-rich Midlands we are used to eating the Indian food that the local Asians eat everyday. What's more, we have an Asian daughter-in-law who regularly cooks for... More

This restaurant is very conveniently located close to a large (free for an hour) car park so ideal for collecting takeaways. The menu has some original Items, two of which we tried. We had to wait half an hour but there was a convenient table to sit and have a drink while we waited. All the food was excellent and... More

Managed to get a last minute table which was good. Food was lovely although we found a little more expensive than other Indian Restaurants in the surrounding areas. Lovely atmosphere was busy for a Friday night. Front of house was very attentive & friendly. Easy parking as near to M&S. Had a lovely evening.

we called in by chance and ended up being very pleasantly surprised. the tapas idea is very good, just a shame that it's only available on a fixed menu. specials are very nice and some unusual ingredients. portions generous enough that although we didn't have starters we couldn't finish our mains. thanks and we will be back.

Nice atmosphere, warm welcome, interesting talk with the owner and most of all beautiful food. What more do you want!! It is a touch expensive which is my only gripe but you pay for what you get!

A very warm welcome when we arrived. We were early and the restaurant was empty but still had a nice atmosphere and it soon filled up. The owner talked my husband into trying a different curry for a change which he enjoyed. Our mixed starter had tender chicken and lamb. My Danask was very tasty and the rice perfectly cooked....

We were on a short break in Lymington with the (young) kids and looking for a decent take away to add a little something to the evening in. We found so much more. Ordering off the specials menu made it an experience more than a meal; dishes we had not tried before, cooked with subtlety and deft spicing. The meat... More
