What was supposed to be an example of fine dining and delightful cuisine wound up being a monstrosity and frankly, we are so overwhelmingly disappointed that for the first time ever we have been forced to leave a review. Rivaaz has been visited by my sister on numerous occasions where she and her husband have each dined during weekends and... More

Dear Customer, I am totally and utterly shocked to read your review of Rivaaz Lymington. What you write does not make sense or sound like the service you would receive if you were a genuine diner. I shall list my reasons why I believe you did not dine at our buffet on a Sunday: - we do not close at... More

Greeted with a welcoming smile was able to sit & study menu without being pressured. The special laziz curry I can highly recommend. A great menu & reasonably priced also very pleasant to see a Indian restaurant employ white British. I would highly recommend rivaaz

Listen up people! The ones moaning about this place being expensive are talking rubbish! I've been eating at Rivaaz for a good number of years now and don't live anywhere near it, I travel to dine at this fine establishment, often driving past many other Indian restaurants to get here! I have entertained clients here, celebrated my daughters 18th birthday... More

Dear Sir, I have responded to a review from your group previously. To write two negative reviews regarding one meal about a business that works hard in these tough economic climates is uncalled for based on the fact that I was never made aware of your dislike to the service that you received on Saturday night. If you would like... More

We've been dining at Rivaaz since it opened about 7/8 years ago! It never fails to impress. Shah and his staff really do go out of their way to help make your dining experience a memorable one. Since the refurbishment last year the menu has changed and it is consistently current! Dishes such as Dom Pukta and Tava remain firm... More

We have eaten at a number of restaurants that specialise in indian cuisine in our local area and none compare to Rivaaz. We drive from Southampton just to eat here. Excellent food, fantastic atmosphere, lovely hospitality. Our favourite place to eat by far. Highly recommended to everybody.

On visiting Lymington for the weekend, a group of 10 of us decided to try the Rivaaz for my husband's birthday. The waiter took our drinks order without writing it down and after about 10 minutes came back with a pen to take the order again. Part of our main course arrived and the rest of the order 5 minutes... More

We have been to the Rivaaz a number of times over the last few years and have always enjoyed the food, though it is never served at a high enough temperature for our liking.
