We have a team of world class chefs delivering the very best in contemporary Indian fusion food right here in Newcastle upon Tyne.

A ‘Living Social’ deal – very good! Starter & Platter with side dishes for two. Plus points – Good food, plenty staff (it got busy, later) Good reception/waiting area and a bar that you can sit at. Pleasant, chic, modern surroundings, excellent décor, nice pictures/photographs. Groung floor, split level building but easy-ish access. Simple table settings but lots of tea-light... More

This is easily one of the best Indian meals I've had in a long time. Everything about the restaurant impressed me - the ambience, service and most imprtantly the food. We had the mixed thali platter for starters and had the slow cooked spicy lamb for our main course. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the owner informed us... More

Our first visit but certainly not our last. The whole experience, food, venue, decor and service were of the highest quality and well worth a visit for anyone who enjoys good food. Indian food served and presented beautifully with such delicate rounded flavours. We tried the tasting menu and found everything to our taste,however the huge amount of food was... More

When our food was ready we were escorted by a waiter who took our drinks. We were having a 7 course taster experience. The food was beautifully presented. The waiter explained what each... More

Got a deal on Living Social. Got here a bit early and was greeted warmly by staff. We got a couple of drinks and where quickly shown to our table. The food we got was exceptional, really lovely. Probably the best Indian food I have had in a long time. Full price menu is pricey but I would happily pay... More

There were lovely paintings around the restaurant and plenty of space between the tables. The staff were very friendly and the food was served at a good pace allowing us to rest between courses..

We decided to give Raval's 7 course taster offer a try. Were were a party of four. On entering the establishment we first noticed the decor was stylish, clean, tasteful and all staff were impeccably turned out. The smell of the food wafting into the bar area was extremely welcoming and tempting. After initial drinks we were shown to our... More

After enjoying many indian meals I visited Raval, and what a totally different experience. As others have mentioned the seating and decor are exquisite, the service is attentive but unobtrusive and the food is served quickly but well paced. The food is different to any indian meal I have ever experienced, it was delicious and servings were ample. If you... More
