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.

The minute you step into the restaurant, you can immediately feel the 'fine dining' atmosphere. You will be directed to a seating area, where you will be seated until your dining table is ready. And that's when you will make your order, alongside with endless refill of papadum (Indian crackers). We actually had 3 full bowls of this, because it... More

This restaurant was recommended to me, and the food was absolutely first class. Modern, fresh, superb quality, delicious. Clean and contemporary surroundings, excellent service, a highly enjoyable dining experience. Not sure why it wasn't full on a Saturday night

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

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.
