We had dinner here last week and loved the food. The price of $25 a head for the banquet and is very reasonable considering the high price of food in Rarotonga. The entree was delicious samosas, onion rings, and lamb kebabs with dipping sauces. Not too spicy. We asked for the main to be mild butter chicken and spicy beef... More

Going all the way to Rarotonga for the best Indian dishes I've tasted. Family get together allowed us to sample 6 dishes each. Amazingly priced, friendly staff and flawless food.

We have eaten here a couple of times now on our annual trips to Rarotonga and both times the meals were yummy. We are a family with one fussy eater, two garbage guts, and an armchair food critic but we all found something we liked. The garlic naan bread could do with a little work, as it wasn't very garlicy... More

We absolutely love Indian food and were looking forward to eating at Raviz. We ordered four different vegetarian curries, which all looked and tasted the same. They were all brown, too salty and really seemed to be made from packet gravy. The staff was nice but very busy and service was slow. We really wanted to like the restaurant but... More

Had four types of curry at dinner, 2 vegetarian, chicken, and lamb. All were obviously from the same base and incredibly sweet it was. We tried to complain but the distracted waitress thought we were complimenting her when we said it was too sweet. We had also orded 'hot' and all the dishes were decidedly mild. The garlic nan and...

We enjoyed this restaurant, just about everything on the buffet was quite tasty. Service was unobtrusive.

We stopped by Raviz because we are nuts about Indian food. The service by Ravi himself and a kind waitress was prompt, very friendly, and efficient. The mango lassi was excellent. We then shared butter chicken and saag paneer and both dishes came with rice. The butter chicken was very good, not the best I'd ever had, but definitely surprisingly... More

The worst curry I have ever had, we went on the buffet night but wasn't informed that they would be no spice and they would all be very mild! We didn't eat any of it and begrudgingly paid for it and left very unhappy :(
