I ordered a mango lassi. The mango lassi I got was tainted with an unusual taste not usually in a mango lassi drink. This was possibly due to the blender used to make the drink having previously been used for something else but was not cleaned before making my order. Surprisingly she was not keen to give me a refund or replace my order. I approached the cashier and she agreed that the blender used was probably not cleaned. Also the area near the kitchen had an unusual smell. The smell was not a nice smell.
We visited for the first time last week. Though the service was a little slow the staff were very friendly. The meal was really tasty and we got exactly what we ordered. Great value for money, we will definitely be going back !!!!!
Food is fantastic. Their curries are bursting with flavors. Going with 4 stars due to long wait. Staff was friendly.
yummmieee is the word, it’s without a doubt my favorite Indian restaurant in Auckland. I only wish the ambience was a lil more classy because people would love to dine in more, I always order garlic and cheese nan and paneer makhani with vegetable jalfraze and it’s just heaven. For all those who have no idea what ind-Chinese tastes like, this is the place where you would love to try some delicious hakka noodles with paneer chilly dry and vegetable machurian witj garvy order some friedrice too. Went there with a few French friends and they absolutely loved hakka veg noodles, also don’t forget to ask for some extra soy, chilli and vinegar sauce – add it to your noodles and friend rice it just makes it even more delicious. How can you not order starters? yummy paneer pakora with some awesome somasas, bhaji (fried onion and potatoes dipped in gramflour batter) with some green and red dates chutney. It’s a must have, I’d suggest go with a big group to enjoy the whole menu haha.. I can’t wait to go back to Raviz again. Vegetarians this is a great place for yummy food I promise you.
I had a beautiful curry here for $10 today, for their Wednesday lunch special. I chose the “Vegetable Jalfrezie” which included lots of different veg incl capsicum, tomatoes & onion. It came with perfectly cooked rice. The medium temperature of the curry was perfect for me, and I really enjoyed the spicy flavours.
The only thing I would critique about my experience at Raviz in Ellerslie today, was a bit of a musty damp-carpet smell near the back of the restaurant. Maybe a new leak has sprung up with the latest heavy rains? Might need some carpets purged to relieve the scent
Other than that, it was a great value and extremely tasty lunch, and the efficient staff were good. Plus the meal was served in well less than 10 mins, which I was really pleased with (as I was on a short lunch break).
I noticed there’s super-easy parking on the forecourt too, which I would use next time.
The curry was one of the worst I’ve ever had (worst I’ve ever paid for). I pre-ordered for pickup and when I got there they hadn’t started making it so I had to wait another 15 minutes. The curry was very watery (chicken korma, chicken sagwala) and they had put pieces of butter chicken chicken in the sagwala sauce which meant it tasted weird. Would recommend against going here.
Had our lunch there a couple of times, love the curry. service might not be speedy but it’s friendly so make sure you have some time to spare.
We had purchased two deal vouchers (a great deal – $40 worth of food for $20), so ordered takeaway on two occasions.
The food itself was very good – worthy of 4 stars. Just the Mango Chicken was lacking a little in flavour but the other items we tried were all great – so recommended in that regard.
My only issue, was the DELAY in picking up food. On both occasions on the phone, I was quoted 20 minutes. On the first occasion, I arrived on time and then had to wait for approx 30 minutes for my meal. On the second occasion, I arrived 10 minutes late (having learned from the first time), but still had to wait another 10 minutes for my meal.
Personally I don’t have an issue if I am told “30 minutes” or “40 minutes” on the phone after ordering – sometimes restaurants are busy. I just want the time to be ACCURATE – after all the reason I phone in my order is so I don’t have to wait – otherwise I’d just walk up and order at their counter!
For this reason, I won’t be returning and am rating 3 stars overall.
We ate at Raviz last night using a voucher, which gave us two drinks, two main dishes and a platter starter for under $40.
We were very pleasantly surprised by Raviz! The service was friendly, the food was good and very generous considering we used a voucher – we had to take some home in a doggy bag!
The dining area is a little bit “cosy” but apart from that I strongly recommend the place.
Will definitely return as the menu is excellent value and the food is very tasty.
Have had vegetarian takeaways on the $10 Wed night a couple of times now. The first time thought we had just made a bad choice as we expected two different dishes but the same sauce was on both. Gave them a second chance and ordered completely different dishes, still got exactly the same sauce for both and not much else, although descriptions on the menu were quite different to each other. Better to pay more and go elsewhere.
Absolutely appalling service. I made a phone order at 7pm on a Wednesday night. It was a busy night as they have 10 dollar Wednesday meals for mains. We got to the restaurant at 7 20pm as we were told the food would be 15 to 20 minutes. We went in to tell the cashier and pay, he fiddled around with the computer and seemed to not find our order we placed over the phone. He then asked us the order and it seemed as though he was writing it into the computer just then. He told us to wait outside (was a very cold day) then he would bring the order to us. We noticed that about 3 people who had come after us to place in order got their food first. We only ordered 3 mains so it wasn’t a big order. We were asked 3 times by staff what we ordered. Finlay at 7 55pm we were just about to get our money back when the man came out with our order. He did not apologize for the wait and just stared lankly.
Worst experience ever at that restaurant. Will never go back.
Ellerslie – We asked to be seated at a different table and were told all others were booked, so we decided to leave. We were then given a different table. We ordered Chicken Korma which was very very salty and Chicken Tikka Masala which was not in a creamy tomato sauce as described, but in a very oily tomato based sauce. Shame, as this is our local which we went back to try after not being for over a year!
Never order food on phone and go for dine.. you will be served cold food. Twice had a bad service experience… it really spoils your meal… Otherwise food good
Raviz Indian Cuisine,
Food is more or less okay, but beware of the Raviz trap.
Check your bill carefully, they tried to charge me full price for a beer, when it was actually part of combination. This is a very low blow.
If you order a large Cobra Beer, they have two types (750ml) the widely advertised one for $12 and a very discreet advertised on for $22-80 where they hide the price discreetly. If you ask for a large Cobra, they will bring you the expensive one, $22-80 for 750ml, when you actually thought that you have purchased the other Cobra that costs just $12-00. Please make sure you get what you order.
Absolute rip off and I will not go there again.
Raviz never fails to impress us. Lunch deals were awesome. Food was yummy. All good. Only gripe – cut out the incense sticks! It stinks!
the food is always yummy………service is good too…..the only thing which acts a backdrop (just a little 1) is too much oil usage……..but rest evrythnzz good………….keep it up…………ur cusromer service is very good……..we get real indian taste at raviz………will reccomend to my friends and family for sure….
I would not return……
The waiter was very slow, and restaurant was very quiet. He didnt tell us about the lunch special, we had to ask about it and were then told the wrong price, which had to agrue at the cashier.
Orders were incorrect, plain naan instead of garlic naan. When asked for Medium got less than mild! Some didnt even get rice with their meal or they took too long when all had time restraint.
This was not a pop in lunch, but a prebooked lunch with several of us, so good business.
The thoughts of most is that they will not return.
My order took about 1.6 hours to arrive and when it did, it was the wrong one. Apparently the driver kept going to the wrong address, even though I told him I would give directions. Then, I was asked if I could have the food delivered elsewhere since the driver could not find it. The food was okay, but definitely overpriced.
We ordered takeaway meals from Hobson branch and received the food after 1.5 hrs! Terrible service considering that we’re located just down the road!
By far, the BEST Indian food I have eaten. Can’t fault the food or the service. Always friendly staff and very prompt service.
Food is great !! nice lovely well maintained restaurant with great staff !! greatly recommended !!
Always lovely food. The restaurant is clean and classy but a bit cramped.
The staff are great. This is a great place to go on a weeknight because it is never too busy and you can have a nice romantic and tasty meal. One of the better Auckland Indian restaurants (we’ve tried a lot of them!)
If you like this and are in the Manukau area you should try Sangeets. It is the best I have tried and has an amazing atmosphere in the dining are and the staff are the best!!
Very good Indian food, great for takeaways and eat inn, I’ve been going there for years and food is always good and great service.
