Frontage a bit uninviting but smart and clean inside. Food choice very good. Peshwari naan excellent and the four in the party all had different dishes. A great choice of vegetarian and ,lots of unusual starters and mains on the menu. All food was deemed excellent and the service was unobtrusive but excellent. Not a good choice if you are... More

My partner and I stumbled onto this restaurant completely by chance and are so glad we did! Very unassuming from the outside, Rivage offers affordable, high-end restaurant food and if by far the best curry we have had in Edinburgh. Quiet and tastefully decorated inside, Rivage offers a wide range of beautifully cooked meals that are presented to a very... More

6 of us decided to go for a last minute impulse curry at this little gem last Friday night. I used to live in Bradford (where you are literally tripping over amazing, reasonably priced curry houses) and since moving here 3 years ago the search to find a decent curry house has been on (and had been very disappointing so...

I spent years living in Birmingham & was spoilt by living in such a city with its many Balti restaurants. 'Rivage' is every bit as good & so inexpensive. The menu is quite 'different' to your usual Indian restaurant although it also has the usual favourites. Plenty of choice. Decent sized portions. No corkage fee for 'bring your own' which... More

I checked out this place based on trip advisor reviews. And it did not disappoint. From outside it looks not too fancy; I wondered for a moment whether I came to the right place. Also the interior could be improved. I was sat at the window next to a wall ... and at the end of the dinner, my coat... More

We went to Rivage with some trepidation. We were booked in on a Saturday night at 7pm and thought it would be really busy, but it was empty! Was the meal going to be bad? No, it was the best Indian meal we had tasted. The price was very reasonable and with bob and free corkage it was fantastic value.... More

Wonderful meal, very helpful as we had very little time to eat and they advised us on what could be quick. Meal served up in no time at all and was delicious. Empty plates all round. Will be back soon.

We visited this wonderful restaurant with our neighbours. It is such a friendly place, and Catherine the owner is so welcoming and helpful with the menu. Fresh tasty and imaginative menu. You can BYOB if you like, although they are licensed and their bar prices are very good, and great Indian lager. Please go here, its a real hidden gem.... More

We love Rivage. The food is always fresh and tasty and the service friendly and helpful. It is our favourite Indian restaurant in Edinburgh by far. We wouldn't go anywhere else.

Delicious food! Got to watch our nan bread being made in the tandoor oven. Sad to hear that it will soon be closing due to rent hikes. Hope you take on another place real soon - food and company from lady 'front of house' was great!

Thank Ian W
