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.

Great food

Great ambience and a soul refreshing lassi did some serious justice to the system. Enjoyed the food. Fried rice is proper home-made style pilau rice as opposed to the coloured rice offered in most restaurants.

The result was an excellent meal excellent service and I couldn't believe how tasty the food was (not the usual food I... More

Raval is different to other Indian restaurants. I've dined there a few times and always been delighted. Great choice across the menus, from fish, chicken and lamb dishes to vegetarian options. The Manjal Tikka was the most perfectly cooked chicken I've had. The Chicken Patiala was nicely spiced and the coconut curry is perfect for those who like their curry... More

While we waited for our table no pre dinner drinks were offered and when we were shown to the table we wondered if it was our waiter's first night; he was slow could not cope... More

I visited this place as it was voted one of the best Indian restaurants in the area. I agree that it is certainly the best decorated, and it does have a great atmosphere and friendly staff. The presentation of the food is certainly one of the best I have seen in an Indian restaurant, however, the food did not live... More
