Modern Indian food

A very pleasant surprise - Raval is tucked away on the Gateshead side of the river but once you have discovered it you will be itching to return for more. Considering the quality and originality of the food, the pricing is very reasonable. The sea bass was delicately spiced, naan bread a real experience (very different from the stodge often served elsewhere) and we enjoyed cocktails in the atmospheric bar area before being shown to our tables. A real experience and perfect for a treat.

Rip off!

Visited Raval on Saturday night, we were a party of 5. Seemed very nice when we arrived the staff were all over us like a rash. The food was quite good but I've had better indian meals.(Not least the ones we make ourselves at home). We had a starter and a main course each, 1 bottle of wine, 2 large bottles of Cobra, and 1 cocktail (£5.50 - quite reasonable for a cocktail we thought). Our bill was £170.00 !!! This included a 10% service charge already added, although in their advert they say this is only obligatory if the party is over 6 people.
They abandoned us after serving the main course. Didn't bother to come back to see if we wanted coffee let alone dessert. In the end we just grabbed a passing waiter and asked for the bill.
There were 4 different occasions of glasses being dropped and smashed.
It was an enjoyable enough meal that was absolutely destroyed when we got the bill.
This was a ridiculous amount of money for an indian meal. Just the rice alone cost almost £20.00 !!!
I'll be going to the Golden Bengal next time, where I know the food is excellent and the atmosphere authentic.
Won't be going back.
One to be avoided unless you enjoy being ripped off.

Raval new modern contempoary restaurant

Raval is based on Gateshead Quays near the Hilton Hotel, Baltic, Sage and Tyne Bridge.

Raval is a luxurious Indian restaurant and has a contemporary feel. The room is split up in to a lounge bar and restaurant and is very spacious. In some Indian restaurants you sometimes feel cramped especially when tables are so near to each over, but not in Raval.

The Bar has a large selection of wines and even serves cocktails. Before dining my artner and I ordered a glass of Groot Constantia Merlot. The wine was priced accordingly and was poured out by the waiters.

We then proceeded to the main seating area. For starter i ordered the Marchi Awaini, fresh wild salmon marinated in Punjabi herbs & light spices, smoked in tandoor. The cost was £6.95 and was worth every penny. The Fish was tender without a bone to be seen and the spices complemented the meat, it was fantastic.

The manager of the restaurant personally came over to ask how the food was, what kind of dishes we liked and how spicy we liked our food and recommended some dishes for the main meal.

For the main meal I went with the Gosht Khada Masala, Lamb cooked in a Punjabi spicy sauce with onion, tomato, mixed peppers & whole spices, the cost was £9.95. For that price I thought the meal was very reasonable for such quality food. I have never experienced lamb so tender and again the spices complimented the dish. In some Indian Restaurants they overpower the cooking with spices, but i could taste the flavour of the succulent lamb and the rich Indian spices for a mouth watering flavour, every bite was like a piece of heaven. With the lamb dish i ordered Basmati Rice £2.95 that i shared between my partner as you get a generous helping and also a Peshawari Naan 3.95 Stuffed with ground almonds, cashew nuts and sultanas.

After the main meal I would have loved to order desert but I was happily full and content.

I recently checked their web sites and it said they were bringing out a new Indian Tapas menu. I hope it will be as good as the meal i had, cant wait to try it out.
