“Fabulous meal in a cosy venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

We had a lovely meal the food out of this world. The waiter was very helpful and advised on dishes which were superbly presented. Taking your own drinks without corkage a bonus. If you like Indian food a visit to Mivesi is a must. We will be going again very soon. The bill was a lovely surprise too!! Great value for money.

“A great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We were slightly apprehensive about eating there - English cafe by day serving cakes, Indian restaurant by night - however, there was no need to be. What a find! The food was incredible, the atmosphere was relaxed and the staff very helpful. Food is prepared using local ingredients (amazing delicately spiced crab for starter), and is of the highest quality. Added benefit of bringing your own alcohol with no corkage charge.

“Another top class meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Visiting Mivesi again proved to be a very wise choice to put it simply you must try it! The staff are very friendly and welcoming and explained that all of the food is freshly prepared so there would be a little wait. Some people seem to have a problem with this but when you get food of this quality it's really not an issue and the wait is very comfortable, not being rushed but having enough time to enjoy your company and the surroundings. I loved my tandoori mixed grill and my partner really enjoyed her madras. The bill was also pleasing as we took are own alcohol so had no drinks to pay for and there was no corkage charge! All in all a top notch restaurant with food to suit try it yourself you WON'T be disappointed

“Wonderfully quirky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

I can't say I've ever eaten at a venue that provides a full English with luxury sausages and black pudding in the morning, and fabulous curries in the evening. Not to be missed, staff are wonderfully helpful, and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. You bring your own alcohol, they will chill it for you, and there's no corkage charge. Highly recommended.

“Good Indian ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

My husband and I were staying in Alnwick and checked trip advisor for local Indian restaurants. When we arrived we were told that they didn't serve alcohol but that we could bring our own. My husband went to the local morrisons while I checked the menu. We both went off the specials menu for mains and they were lovely. The only downside I saw was a couple came in while we were eating and they didn't seem to get served. I would go again.
