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

I am not sure why there is such a plethora of bad reviews (maybe something has changed) but when we were there in early 2013 it was very good. I thought the name was familiar and when we looked at the menu, we saw why Raviz has several locations in Auckland. We had butter chicken and mango chicken and both... 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 :(

We stopped in to take a break from the standard island fare. Raviz was surprisingly decent Indian food. Price was OK, quantities very good and the food quite tasty. One dish was saltier than I would have liked, and none of them had any real spicey heat to them, but the quality of the meat was good. The naan was... More
