We decided to order a takeaway from the restaurant, as it was said on the online menu they deliver for free. Once we rang, they said its only a pick up. Maybe cos they were busy tonight.
Then we waited for about 50 minutes to get them to call back once the food is ready.
Food was nice, delicious, portions are quite small though. If you take a regular rectangle metal takeaway curry dish, that was halfway full only, and thats when I ordered my curry as a main. Usualy in other takeaway places they do load up that box full.
We did enjoy the food though and it was tasty and nice, especially I recommend naan bread filled with nut paste and mushroom and peas curry.
Pricewise as well quite reasonably prices.
I would just have been more happy if the wood was more and the time of waiting would be a bit less.
I do recommend the place.

I appreciate this is not a review of this restaurant, but surely a post has to be made when a party of four people looking to have a celebratory dinner, where the booking was taken for tonight 9 April, and where a contact telephone number was taken, THE RESTAURANT WAS CLOSED WHEN WE ARRIVED AT 8PM AS BOOKED. Not a phone call to offer apologies or anything. So whether past reviews maybe gave their opinions, mine is equally important. Don't bother. Totally spoiled our night, that's for sure.

We discovered this restaurant about a year ago and just keep going back for more. It is superb. The food is different from any other In Indian restaurant we have ever been to. Quite unique. And the flavours really come through and delight your taste buds. Not only that, it's not expensive with an option to BYOB even though they are licensed. And their own wine is good and with inexpensive brands too. I also love the fcat that nothing is too much trouble. We have started to take our fiends and family their on special nights out and no-one yet has been disappointed. It's an out-of-the-way gem.

This is the second eat-in meal we have had at the Rivage.

We did find the restaurant a bit cold, and the chairs are still very hard. Please, please, please upgrade the menu to something nicer as they are really awful. They do not do the restaurant justice - as does the lack of a website and online booking.

The food was good, reasonably priced, lots of flavour and we all really enjoyed it.

Service is not the best but an improvement on the last visit.

Will definitely be back.
