A cut above your normal Indian restaurant

We turned up without a booking on a Saturday night (around 7pm) and while the place was reasonably busy, we were able to get a table (for two). We have been here before - though probably not for about a year - and the food is just as good as every other time. What makes this place special is not... read more

This place was amazing! It was packed when we arrived but they found us a table with ease. Service was so prompt and attentive. The food was fabulous. We liked that the menu was so excited (lots of exclamation points)! The whole feel of the place was great. Loved it. The whole package!!

Really enjoyed our dinner and appreciated how accomodating they were for us. I'm vegan and they adapted a few dishes for me. Food was really tasty and service was great. Will definitely be back!

The owners are so humble and so warm it feels like home. Everyone who works there is very welcoming and accommodating. The food is just beautiful - gorgeous flavours, distinct - yet not over powering filling but not heavy. We did 5 weeks in India - the food at Raavi's is defiantly the best that Sydney has to offer! Amazing... More

I searched TA for a restaurant in Crows Nest to accomodate our family. The reviews attracted me. I can confirm them to be correct. The food is fresh and the meat dishes the best we have found in Sydney for texture and flavour. It is obviously run with pride.

The people that run this restaurant are lovely and the food is delicious. The flavours of each dish are distinctive and you walk away feeling full and that you have really had a true taste experience! A great meal for a group who like to share and taste different dishes!

I have been to this restaurant twice and it was good. Love the different gravy for all their curries. It is one of the better Indian restaurant I have eaten in a long time. Nice food and good ambience overall.

The food is really very very good. Everything we have tried has always been fresh and super yum. When it says it's hot, it's hot. And you can always be rest assured that you will leave very satisfied both with the food and the price. Staff are friendly and the room itself isn't very modern, but is nice and comfortable....

Having been coming here for years and is consistently good food at reasonable prices with good portions. Their Tandoori Chicken & Onion Bhaji are great starters and their butter chicken is best i have had very rich tasty sauce and fish curry has amazing flavours. Would give 5 stars but believe they need to add specials to their menu monthly... More
