Description: From Raval's sophisticated and award-winning restaurant overlooking the spectacular Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead cityscape, our team of world class chefs deliver the very best in contemporary Indian fusion food. Our tantalising cuisine, indisputable knowledge, charming staff, modern and inviting atmosphere and unrivalled location, next to the Hilton Hotel and Sage Gateshead, ensure that our guests keep coming back for more. We have a team of world class chefs delivering the very best in contemporary Indian fusion food right here in Newcastle upon Tyne. Indian food served in the UK is often anglicized and high fat, high calorie and unauthentic, Raval Restaurant seeks to move away from this by serving cuisine with real Indian spices and flavour.

The title says it all. We arrived on time for our reservation. The restaurent was quiet. We sat in the waiting area for 15 minutes before anyone took a drinks order and after 45 minutes I had to ask if someone was going to take the order, 20 minutes later the manager arrived to take the order. Some 30 minutes... More

Had a family meal here for four of us. Spectacular food with Curry Restaurant of the year trophy on the bar. Unusual styling for an Indian restaurant more like Italian designer. No Indian music and no smell of anything! A big glass partition sees straight into the kitchen - always a good sign! Sea food was especially nice and the... More

Been there a few times and have basically tried most of the items on the menu. My girlfriend and I have not been disappointed! Make sure to ask the waiters about the dishes. They are very attentive and willing to explain. The mixed drinks are good and the appetizers are our favourites. Highly recommend the lamb chop and the prawn... More

Raval was recommended to us by the host at Hilton hotel, we had dined there the night before, and told him that the food was amazing and we would be back the following night. He made a surprise recommendation, and recommended another restaurant, since we were only in town for one more night. The recommendation was Raval, he mentioned that... More

I'm not sure there is anything I can say about Raval that will add to the conversation, but I figured they could use another five star rating. I've been here three times, including once for restaurant week, and it is consistently inventive, delicious, and satisfying. Even some of my favourite’s restaurants seem to dip a little during restaurant week, not... More

Best south indian food I have ever had! Great customer service – We finally had a chance to dine at Raval last night and I have to say that they have the best karala curry in the world! A perfect blend of sweet and spice with the most tender strips of chicken - this dish is amazing. We also had... More

our favourite spot after the play/concert/shopping...anytime – I have yet to visit Raval and have an unsatisfactory experience in dining or service. I have dined here at least 1/2 dozen times and I feel like we have 2 or 3 individuals waiting on us every time we come. The managers are always smiling, friendly and happy. I feel take care of and...

Went to the Raval for a birthday treat having been several times before. Usually been good food but slow service. This was the same except the service was hopeless. We had been seated for 15 minutes before we were approached about ordering drinks. The restaurant wasn't busy but the reception area had several groups, all looking fractious. When our drinks...

We were really looking forward to a great evening out. We arrived at Raval early to sit in the bar area and look over the menu. We ordered some drinks, popadoms and dips which arrived without any side plates (but we could cope with this). Shortly after looking through the menu we realised it was extremely expensive (starters ranging from... More
