An Indian jewel for family feasting

Arriving on a dark wet windy Friday night, this refuge was warm, welcoming and smart. It had a buzz and most tables were already booked! Instant attention for drinks etc was appreciated but perhaps for us, who are not regular `Indiefeasters`, a little more time for odering was needed. An extensive... read more

Tonight was our monthly boys night out. Myself and my fellow escapees snuck out under cover of darkness and headed out. We again chose Rivaaz. As regulars to this restaurant we were looking forward to our evening. They did not disappoint. On arrival we were warmly greated as old friends, handshakes, general enquiries about work family etc and shown to... More

Lovely service - very attentive and helpful. Food is great, my husband is the curry man and he says it's the best curry house in the area (he's been there a number of times and tried out others locally). I'm more of a korma girl myself and that was very tasty too! They fitted us in on a busy Saturday... More

We were in Lymington for a few days and had asked about a good local restaurant. Rivaaz was recommended. It was a Wednesday so quiet. We love Indian food and wondered how this would compare against our favourites. It was superb, well cooked, well presented. The restaurant is quite intimate, the staff very friendly and made us feel welcome. We... More

We visited Rivaaz last week and when unable to make up our minds as to what to order despite the very patient and knowledgeable owner talking us through most of the menu he offered us the chance to try a couple of dishes from the soon to be new menu as a trial. The meal arrived quickly despite the restaurant... More

Popped in tonight fairly early for takeaway. Restaurant full. As always very warmly greated by all staff including the owner. Waiting time for my food was about ten minutes, just enough time to joke about me doing the dry January challenge and look longingly at all the cold Cobra being served ! Still the lemonade was most refreshing ! Food... More

We were staying at a hotel and feeling lazy so ordered a take-away. We ordered 1 starter, 3 veg side dishes, a main and some rice and it only came to twenty four pounds! The veggie side dishes were huge and just as tasty as a main, and the main was lovely. We asked for something vegetarian but unusual and... More
