Affordable indian food

This is the only place on the island to find decent indian food. The dishes are pretty average, but overall tasty. Portions are good, and the food is affordable. Staff is not too friendly. I'd recommend sitting outside; the atmosphere inside the restaurant is pretty bad in general. The lunch... read more

All you can eat indian food is always a winner. All of the usual curries and they were average, but not bad. Being this is the onlky indian restaurant and takeaway on Rarotonga you really don't get a choice.

Well, it is a difficult one really as for one it was not that bad. I ordered the Chicken Tikka and the Butter chicken and both dishes were ok. I have had worst in NZ. I did enjoy the Naan bread, had the cheese Naan it was hot and you can tell it just came out of the Tandoor oven.... More

The food at Raviz is well balanced, with quite a varied menu. There is little to no atmosphere. It would be nice to have suitable background music and more lighting in the outside area. Hopefully under it's new management this can be achieved.

I visit Raviz often for Indian foods. The staffs were very attentive, courteous. They serve North Indian foods a gift to the island. The island has no restaurant where we can taste authentic Indian foods. They host budget dinner buffet every Friday. Also budget takeaways are also available. I love Panner Gravy, Cheese Naan, they are my favorites.

We did a take away of 3 meals. We requested hot Indian curry but it totally lacked the taste. This is the only Indian restaurant on the Island, but it lacks being a true Indian experience.

My son and I had a nice dinner out on the veranda, We had genuine Indian food, I did not find all the usual goodies like popadums and naan on the menu, but I just asked for it and sure they had it and we got it. We had a great filling meal with some starters, a main dish each... More

You need to come to NZ and taste the curries over here. Because i was not impressed at all. I had one mouthful of mine and stopped there!

Contrary to the rather harsh reviews below, I found the service to be attentive and warm. The food is pretty good, similar to the Raviz restaurants in Auckland. The breads are freshly made, and the curries, while not the world's best, are very good. Yes, it's not by the ocean, but it is a totally credible choice for when you're... More
