We visited Rivage on a Saturday night and it was almost empty (2 more tables apart from us). The interior, full of wooden details, was really nice and the waitress friendly. The food was lacking of flavours, for example in the pistachio chicken you could not taste the pistachios, the cod was overcooked and the scallops had no difference from... More

The food is simply amazing. After trying curry in Bradford, it was quite difficult to find a curry so good. By that was before I had a dinner to Rivage. On my humble opinion is the best curry I had in Edinburgh and it's so cheap you could even feel guilty about it!

The Rivage was suggested to me by my Son who thought highly of it. I tried it with my partner one evening and we both loved the place. Food was great and we even got free appetisers to nibble on while the food was being prepared. The chef was excellent and we have been back many times since. Strangely it... More

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.
