I arrived in Gateshead late on a Monday evening. I went to Raval and asked if they were serving still, or could they give me a take-away. They couldn't have been nicer or made me feel more welcome! I was the ONLY one in the restaurant and they made me relax and order whatever I wanted. A chef stayed late,... More

I could not fault this restaurant at all. I am very fussy when it comes to eating out, food and hygiene is imperative to me. The food, hygiene, service and the decor was above and beyond! On arrival I was greeted by staff who were very friendly. The atmosphere was lovely, so much so that we stayed for drinks for... More

Last year, when visiting for the English Schools Track & Field championships, for the first time ever, I was moved to write a review. The Championships returned this July and I made sure Raval was in our plans. I was not dissappointed. Neither were the other three in our party, including a visiting Coach from a US college. Not being... More

We had a great time, food was lovely and staff and manager were very friendly ! Very clean and welcoming. Maybe more expensive than I'd usually pay but food was delicious. I will certainly go again.

My son's girlfriend and I were taken here to celebrate our Birthdays (11th July 16), it was a surprise and we had no idea what to expect. We were very impressed at being able to park outside without a problem. The decor and staff were first class and all who served us were attentive, polite and helpful. The service was... More

Raval is a great place to go for an Indian meal in Newcastle. You are made to feel very welcome by the staff and the atmosphere is very relaxed. You can take your time and not be rushed through your courses. The food is fantastic. I had lamb & coconut curry, and the mixture of flavours was amazing. I recommend... More

My colleague had Assam Dhaniya Chicken and I had Pukka Chicken Kadai. Both, along with House Pillau and Gwalior nan were superb. Generously sized portions and excellent hospitality as usual.

Where do I start, I booked this requesting a quite corner, on arrival we were greeted by the manager, who took us to our table, right in the middle of the restaurant. Wine lists were printed on paper which were dirty, handled by too many people not refreshed. Looking at the list, the wine averaged £20 to £25 a bottle... More

From Raval's sophisticated and award-winning restaurant overlooking the spectacular Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead cityscape, our team of world class chefs deliver the very best in contemporary Indian fusion food.

Our tantalising cuisine, indisputable knowledge, charming staff, modern and inviting atmosphere and unrivalled location, next to the Hilton Hotel and Sage Gateshead, ensure that our guests keep coming back for more.

We have a team of world class chefs delivering the very best in contemporary Indian fusion food right here in Newcastle upon Tyne. Indian food served in the UK is often anglicized and high fat, high calorie and unauthentic, Raval Restaurant seeks to move away from this by serving cuisine with real Indian spices and flavour.
