Their biggest downfall is customer service and wait times.
Yes we visited on a Wednesday which was somewhat busy, however, after ordering four mains we waited over an hour to be served. Plus we had to continuously ask for more rice – with four mains you should expect more than one small bowl of rice.
Plus do not advertise items on your menu if you cannot serve them ..

The service was moderate although the wait staff was not overly helpful.
I have heard of some good reviews from Raviz but after my first visit I will not be returning.
I ordered which resembled a very thick green gloop with chunks of Paneer. Also the wait staff did not notice that our drinks were getting low and sis not offer to get more. this also happened when the water bottle at the table ran out.
The food tasted alright but wasn’t very spicy at all even though medium for both dishes was ordered.
Also we were not given a drinks menu so we could have been over charged for drinks.
After writing a good review its a pity I have to write this .We ordered a take away meal,after being told my meal would arrive in 30-40mins an hour an a half later it turned up (after me ringing to ask where are meal was ).I order a Rogan Josh from here once a week and this definatley wasn’t a Rogan Josh .My husband ordered Beef Curry ,he got Lamb.The Scallop starter was VERY greasy an the meal was cold.I will not be ordering again

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 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 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.
Worst experience ever at that restaurant. Will never go back.
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.
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.
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!!
