What an amazing experience! Rivaaz is definitely worthy of its reputation as the best Indian restaurant, not only in Lymington, but the entirety of the New Forest. The specials we had from a separate specials menu are truly delicious! Cannot recommend highly enough!

We love our curry, and did our research to find this restaurant. The glowing reviews were borne out, from the home-made paneer to the unique dishes on the menu. Also, great decor and fine service.

Can not recommend this restaurant enough. Been a number of times and always amazing. LOVE the Dom Pukta - enough reason to travel from Bournemouth to have it. We've tried the Sunday Buffet. Unlike many Indian buffet deals all the food is fresh and top quality dishes from its menu. Looking forward to my Mother's Day buffet on Sunday! Best... More

Staying in Lymington last weekend, wanted a "Good" Indian experience so booked here for my wife and i together with her father for Saturday night. Arrived at 7.55, it was virtually full, shown to our table, very courteous service, the owner Shah, oversees everything as well as being full hands on, he clearly knows whats going on at any given...

It was a cold wet Sunday at the end of January, it was also my husband's 70th birthday. We had chosen to celebrate with 33 family and friends at Rivaaz in Lymington and what a good choice it was! Inside it was warm and very welcoming. We all enjoyed a glass of bubbly on arrival and went on to enjoy... More
