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 but very quiet

Spice balance was delectable. Wine list was good as was the serve. Restaurant was very quiet and with the quality it should not be!

We have been coming here for over 6 years. It is my favourite restaurant, and my partner and I come here regularly. I do not normally write reviews but I make an exception for Ravals. Tonight I had the sea bass off the new menu with rice and salad. It was something special and probably unique outside of the top... More

A lovely setting, friendly staff and good service all complement the most delicious authentic Indian food. The menu is different but very interesting and everyone in our group was really happy with what they ordered.

New Years Eve like many people we wanted to plan ahead and order a take away as we had friends coming over. We ordered our takeaway 4 hours before we wanted to pick it up so we were not rushing around later on. As it’s a bit of a drive I always go early and have a drink in the... More

Visited Saturday night with my husband for the first time found the setting lovely and relaxing and plenty of space between tables so could easily chat to each other without anyone listening to your conversation. We were greeted by friendly staff and shown to the bar area for a pre dinner drink and shown the menu. Food was delicious and... More

Didn't have time to have a meal out, so we logged onto the take away web site, works well, chose our food and got an email to say that the order was on the way to the kitchen. Ordered a fish starter, and it was full of flavour, the only issue was it was full of bones. Shame we never... More
