If you want an authentic Indian meal dine at the Rivaj. The atmosphere is great, friendly attentive staff and great decor. The food is amazing and everytime we have visited it is of the same high standard. Looking forward to our return visit.

Excellent Indian, literally the best we have ever had. We have enjoyed many date nights and even a meal with our children. £9.95 3 meal course is extremely good value but we are more than willing to pay full price. Thanks again and see you soon! Ben Mercer

Excellent place for food, drink and you are always welcome with a warm welcome. Myself and Georgina love going for a meal at Rivaji and we also love ordering a take away from them as well. With being from Liverpool and now living in Chorley I have never found a better curry house than this place. I highly recommend you... More

Only live local but never actually been to the the Rivaj. Had the opportunity to go for my partners works outing. We were greeted on arrival and the staff were attentive all evening. We didn't eat off the menu but was served with a banquet style meal. All the dishes were very tasty and we all thoroughly enjoyed the evening.... More

Our regular Friday night treat. Very friendly staff and owner. I am a veggie and they do all sorts of 'off menu' meals for me depending on what I fancy, it's a fab place. The new makeover is very swish and eating in is a delight too. Give it a go!
