This restaurant is relatively local to us and we selected it by personal recommendation and trip advisor reviews. Based on our experience, I cannot go with the majority of reviews. We were well received, seated in the bar area with poppadum's and sauces, while we had our first drink and looked at the menu - that was a nice touch,... More

We chose this restaurant as a place to eat after attending a concert at the Sage on a Friday evening. It seems, however, that most people eat prior to the concert and, as a result, only one other table was occupied. I cannot, therefore, comment on the atmosphere. Despite this, the food was excellent and we did not feel rushed.... More

A lovely first impression when we were seated in the reception area and given menus, nibbles and our drinks whilst having a first look at the menu. The food was delicious and contemporary and the wine excellent. Friendly service and a lovely experience. Will return.

Decided to eat here prior to visiting the sage, very close by and after reading reviews we certainly weren't disappointed. Friendly staff, food was excellent, we decided on the early evening menu, 2 courses for £14.95, well worth the money. Would recommend the Lamb and spinach dish, delicious

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

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.
