Good food

Music was bistro style and welcome. Maybe they could remove a couple of tables to allow more room. It was quiet when we visited but if it had been busy you would not have held a conversation without shouting due to proximity of tables. Madras was spicy hot and flavoursome.

I went to Rivaaz for the Sunday Lunch Buffet, and as always it was absolutely excellent. I am a big lover of Indian food and have sampled a fair few of the local restaurants, but Rivaaz always comes out on top for me. The flavours of the curries are great, and the meat is always so tender and juicy, the... More

Our first time to dine here, and it was a faultless experience. Absolutely fantastic service and excellent food. The chicken was good quality, melted in the mouth it was so tender! Very friendly staff members that were happy to help everyone, also a lovely touch to have a single red rose on every table to take away. Highly recommend if... More

Went with friends couple of nights ago. Decided to try it after receiving one of those menu flyers through the post and then seeing other TA reviews. This restaurant offers the usual starters and mains found in every Indian restaurant. But it also has a large selection of dishes that I have never seen before. Trying new food is something... More

I came here on 4/1/15 while out on a child free day trip to Lymington with my husband. We needed lunch and being vegetarian you can't often go wrong with Indian food. We had the lunchtime buffet and had a choice of rice, saag Aloo, Tarka Dhal, Onion Barjhis and naan bread. We were not disappointed, The main dishes were... More
