“One of the best indians in the Wigan area”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The food and service at the Rivaj is second to none. I have never had a bad meal at the restaurant and never had a bad takeaway either. The restaurant itself is very tastefully decorated inside and very warm and welcoming. The food choices on the menu are not the usual run of the mill curry's you find in most Indians, although they do have all the usual dishes, they also have a wide range of specialty dishes to try and I like that. I like to try new things and be pleasantly surprised and the Rivaj delivers.

“Fresh, high quality indian”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Consistently good quality, fresh food. Chef's specialities are good. Sometimes have to wait, but I find that reassuring - means it's not all microwaved! Staff are helpful and efficient. Very good for take-away too

“Excellent value and delicious indian food - definately recommend!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We tried this restaurant after several people had recommended it to me. It was a saturday night and the special menu of 3 courses for £8.95 pp was available until 7pm. This was excellent value for money and the food was delicious. This consisted of popadoms, starters, main with a side. We both really enjoyed the fresh high quality food and will definately be going back! Cant understand why it wasn't busier on a Saturday night, I think as the place was previously a pub some may not realise it has changed hands and it now one of the best indians in the area. They also do takeaways which we had previously tried a few weeks before and again was delicious.

“Yet another wonderful visit!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We have now become regular visitors to Rivaj with family and friends. You cannot fault it in anyway. The have fantastic menu choice, the staff are pleasant, welcoming and polite. The service is very efficient and they provide wonderful food. This is all served in very attractive surroundings. We use to venture all the way to Manchester for a really good indian. We do not need to now; we can stay local were the experience from start to finish is very enjoyable.

They do a buffet menu, takeaway and a la carte menu all of which are gorgeous. Would highly recommend Rivaj at Wrightington.
