Consistently good even for a fussy curry fan who has lived not far from Brick Lane if a little on the expensive side. Try Lamb Sag and Tarka Dhal. Staff friendly. Restaurant modern and inviting. Always busy.

Not for the first time we once again enjoyed the Sunday Lunch from the Rivaaz. As usual the food was very good and the staff very professional and excellent. If you like good curry you will enjoy the Rivaaz.

The food here is spectacular, but the only reason I'd give it 4 stars and not 5 is because the prices are a little too high. The atmosphere is great and the service is very good, with friendly staff always there to help you choose the right meal!

I have been eating at this amazing restaurant for 10 years, I visited on New Years Eve and despite being extremely busy the food and the service was outstanding as always. The best thing about this restaurant is the consistency, I must have visited hundreds of time and the whole experience has always been without fault.

After a heavy night celebrating the start of of the new year we obviously needed a curry to cure what was probably one of the strongest hangovers I've had since my younger days and so where else would we go but Rivaaz!! It was busy and buzzy which was great to see as so many others that we passed on... More

Our favourite takeaway choice in town. I LOVE indian food and the Rivaz never disappoints. Luckily I live very nearby so it's our regular local for Saturday night takeaway - always ordering extra for the next day! I cannot rate this highly enough

Eaten here several times and very much enjoyed the food and atmosphere. However had a meal boxing day evening and the food was below par. The tandoori mix was rather tough and dry, other dishes were very good. I think they all left their smiles behind. Only a few serving compared to normal amount of people and all so miserable....
