Tasty food to be had here. Good selection of dishes with intriguing spice combinations and a great lime pickle! In my top ten of curry houses. Owner is a very amicable chap too.

Quite simply the best Indian I have ever had -luckily my girl friend booked as it was packed with people and while we were eating we saw about 4 couples turned away as there were no free tables. The food is of a very high standard and beautifully cooked. The decor and ambience is excellent - though busy for us... More

Very glad we opted to eat here as the food was good and the service excellent. We had the "special" which was a sample of 4 curries and rice. Was impressed that they rattled up a lassi, even though it wasn't on the menu- not many places would bother with that level of service. noticed when we arrived that most... More

What can I say about this place apart from the fact that every time we have dined at this establishment it has always been sublime. I'm not one to write a review usually but last Saturday my wife and dined here and despite being very busy the food was extraordinarily good so a review to rave about this place is... More

Called in without booking on Thursday evening. Around 8pm. Restaurant full. However we were accommodated immediately. Service and food as always faultless. As you may read from my previous reviews this restaurant consistently delivers a high standard of food and service. We had another excellent meal and excellent service. I will match their consistency with that of my own in... More

Rivaaz never fails to impress. The service from the minute you walk in is so personal and friendly. It is obvious that the owner takes extreme pride in the way he runs this place, he always comes to the table to have a chat make sure all is ok, even when they're full to the brim. The food is simply... More

Visited last night whilst on holiday in Lymington. Booked a table and arrived just before 7pm. Restaurant was empty except for one table with two customers. We were put to sit right next to that table almost touching each other. Expected an excellent meal but apart from one curry dish everything was cold. We complained about the cold dishes and... More

Visited here tonight whilst on holiday for a change from pub grub and Italian. The food was very good admittedly however the service was very slow (we waited 20 minutes for our starter plates to be cleared). The waitress got our drinks order wrong and then spilled food on the table so not a great start. The reason for the... More
