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.

We booked this restaurant expecting good food particularly as they won the North East Curry Awards last year however we were bitterly disappointed with our two curry dishes and side dish which although flavoursome were swimming in oil. The popodum starter was good but all else very poor. Very disappointed particularly as the curry was pricey.

We visit ravals at least once a fortnight,and have done for about 6 years. It is our favourite restaurant. Very relaxing and food is gorgeous. The staff are charming. and we see the same ones every week. Can't fault it.

Upon arriving at the restaurant we were greeted by a very welcoming waitress. We were taken to the lounge area for drinks and popads (delicious). We were escorted to our seats in the dining area which was nicely lit with elegant music in the background. I ordered the chicken which was amazing and my partner ordered the lamb which fell... More

Some good reviews on Tripadvisor but from my experience I can't see why. Food was okay but I've had better on a Thursday night special Indian in Whitley Bay. We were a large party and the staff were insistent that we all go for the £34.95. 'Special Buffet', the majority wanted to go a'la carte which the staff eventually agreed... More

We visited our favourite Indian restaurant again the night before heading off on holiday. This is no ordinary Indian restaurant, the dishes are, IMHO, worthy of a Michelin star. The service was as good as always. If you are near Gateshead/Newcastle make sure and book a table!

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
