While staying in Gateshead found this restaurant through an internet search looking for an Indian Restaurant nearby. The Raval came up and was a great find. The food was some of the best Indian food I have ever eaten and I have been eating curries for over 40 years now! The quality of both cooking and presentation was superb. I... More

Lovely modern clean restaurant with friendly staff. Food was gorgeous. We had the early bird special at £14.95 with a 10% special offer discount. For starters I had the potato cake which was delicious and spicy but not hot. For mains the lamb and spinach which was sublime. Within the price you also get rice or nan bread so we... More

I visit Newcastle occasionally, and nowadays I make sure I stay at the Hilton so I can easily hit the Raval for dinner.. It's more than a curry house- it's glitzy and fresh, it's got the owner with banter, but best of all an amazing menu. I had a chicken dish that was unlike anything I'd ever had before, it... More

For my husbands 40th birthday we wanted to take 14 of our friends for a special meal. We chose Raval because of its reviews. We booked a table for 10pm on Saturday evening. When we arrived there was no one else in the restaurant which was the same for the whole of our stay . We were asked to sit... More

A couple of us went along one Saturday evening - we'd heard that the food was good. what we found was an excellent, and slightly unusual (compared to the run of the mill Indian type restaurants) menu, very well executed, with great service in upmarket surroundings. We were surprised that the restaurant wasn't full to the gills! Excellent lamb chops... More

We have been to Rivals previously as it's in a parade of buildings just along the way from one of my favourite Newcastle/Gateshead pubs with the name something like The Central. Last time we had little choice as we were amidst a summer storm, but this time having enjoyed our last experience went willingly. We hadn't booked so went rely.... More

My wife and went here before a concert at The Sage. As the concert started at 7.00pm we went early and took advantage of the early menu offer at £14.95 each, and one drink each. The food was excellent, but the service was a bit slow as it took ages for our drinks to arrive. The bill was £35.40, which... More

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.
