very friendly and helpful staff. a light restaurant with modern decorating. The food was exquisite, really of very good quality. The rice for example was just delicious on its own. We had five different mains amongst us and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Naan, poppadums etc good too. Staff friendly and I hope I'll be in the area again as I'll... More

Researched several menu's of Indian restuarants in Gateshead/Newcastle and this looked good. We weren't dissappointed. The fairly restricted menu still gave me a problem in choosing my main course. I was split between three - when do you ever see lobster or scallops on the menu? I normally give the mild options a miss, but stuck with my love of... More

Lovely restaurant with authentic indian cuisine, reminded me of being back in India, the waiters were lovely and friendly and seemed genuinely interested in ensuring we had a good time. Loved the unusual pickles that came with the poppadoms and the Indian salad that was served with the starters. It's a little bit pricey but definitely worth it.

We visited here as a family on a Saturday evening. The service was exceptional, very friendly and regular checks to see if everything was going ok. The food was very well presented which added to making it something special. The menu is not atypical of an Indian restaurant and was a good opportunity to try something new. The four piece... More

As a frequent visitor to The Sage, we have passed and parked next to this restaurant many times without going in. On Saturday, my mother-in-law and I decided to visit before a show to sample the early evening 2 course menu. We are so pleased we did. The service we received was exemplary, the food fresh and delicious, and the... More

We went to Raval for a Father's Day meal, the first thing to mention is the car parking - we managed to park right outside the restaurant - there are plenty of parking spaces and it's free to park too, which for a city centre location is brilliant! From the moment we entered the restaurant we were treated like VIPs... More

This was our first visit to Raval. Everything about the place is stylish. The service was first class and the food was outstanding. I'm looking forward to our next visit. Definitely the best Indian meal I've ever had.

I have reviewed Raval previously but they have recently introduced a new early evening Tapas menu so we popped along with friends last night to try it out. Our friends were driving up from York so imagine our disappointment when hubby and I arrived first and were advised Tapas was not on that night. Disappointment was short lived though because...

My family visited this restaurant on Friday evening 12th June. From start to finish the staff couldn't do enough for us, the starters and mains were amazing and the owner actually made a chicken dish for our little diner! Look forward to going back soon.

Stylish restaurant in prime position. Delicious cocktails, pappadums with fresh relishes and the early bird menu is perfect for having a meal before a Sage performance. All freshly cooked and stunning flavours. Staff are extremely attentive. Best curries in Gateshead/Newcastle.
