“Best Indian food I've ever had!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We were camping near Lymington and decided to visit here on our last night. I can safely say this is the best food I've ever tasted in an Indian restaurant. We had starters and then mains. We both tried one of the speciality dishes and they were amazingly tasty. We rounded off our meal with ginger, and salted caramel ice cream. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely visit again when we return on holiday to Lymington

“Gorgeous food, beautiful atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Rivaaz is a lovely place to have dinner with friends or a date. The food was delicious. The waiters were very efficient, and after a bottle of wine, a lovely curry, and good company I had a brilliant night!

“Buzzing atmosphere & great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

My friends and I had a wonderful time at Rivaaz - the staff were friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was buzzing and fun (clearly a favourite amongst the locals!) and the food was great. The value for money was brilliant, we only ordered 4 dishes to share between us and we could barely finish!

“Outstanding food and service, highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We have eaten at Rivaaz a number of times now and every time has been the same.

Good service and fantastic food.

Tastes of the dishes far surpasses the average Indian restaurant. Not focused on "hot" food, but truly tasty food. The coconut chutney given with the poppadoms is fabulous!

We travel 30 minutes from Bournemouth to Lymington just for Rivaaz - well worth it.
