Celebrity Chef Reviews
"Raval is a contemporary Indian restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. As for the food itself, the freshness and flavours take it way beyond what you would expect at most Indian restaurants. There is real technique and skill involved in the way Raval’s chefs combine complex spices to create dishes that are authentic but not overpowering."
–PAUL GAYLOR, Executive Chef at Knightsbridge London's 5 Star Lanesborough Hotel
"My first meal at Raval certainly exceeded all expectations. It’s the sort of food I’ve been fighting to see served in the UK’s Indian restaurants for the past 20 years. Normally, I steer clear of recommending restaurants but I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Raval. It’s a shining example of the Asian restaurant sector."
–CYRUS TODIWALA O.B.E. Executive Chef at London's Cafe Spice
"Raval is genuinely stylish – the sort of place you’re happy to be seen in. It couldn’t be further removed from a run-of-the-mill curry house. It uses spices to create real Indian food that’s packed with flavour and beautifully presented. Eating there is a rewarding experience, made even more enjoyable by the attentive staff."
–PAUL BATES, Executive Chef at London's 5 Star Intercontinental Hotel
"I have always taken people to Raval, including other chefs, and you have to have confidence in a restaurant to do that. The food is fragrant and correctly balanced . . . there’s real passion on every plate."
–DOUGLAS JORDAN, Chef & Chairman N.E.C.T.A.
"I’ve been to Raval many times. It’s Mumbai meets fine dining; quality Indian cuisine with a stamp of authenticity."
–NIGEL CRANE, Former Executive Chef at London's 5 Star Dorchester
