WELCOME TO RIVA LOUNGE BAR AND RESTAURANT IN HALE VILLAGE

Great quality, serious but unpretentious food, with a friendly and personal service. All wrapped up in a relaxed, casual, comfortable setting.

Serving everything from Bar Snacks to a full A La Carte and Sunday Lunch, great cocktails alongside an extensive wine list.

This place is quite expensive but you do get large portions unlike some other expensive restaurants. Not sure I like that there are dogs but they keep them to the bar area which is good. They had live music from 730 which was nice and cocktails were nice but again quite expensive. Overall the restaurant is nicely set out and food is tasty and good size portions, staff are really nice and check on you regularly.

About the restaurant
K2H Creative Indian Kitchen
Back in 2016 our founder Nagendra had the vision to create an Indian dining experience like no other in the region.

Based on the home cooked dishes that he grew up enjoying in Northern India he wanted to introduce real Indian dishes. You may not recognise some of the names as we bring you true Indian cuisine to tantalise your tastebuds.

We aim to provide our customers with the very best of Indian food and service. The restaurant stays true to its Indian heritage with traditional cooking methods, top quality fresh ingredients and elegant service. Our Chefs prepare a special mix of dry whole spices for different dishes by grinding them in-house in your local kitchen. With many years of training and experience in five-star hotels in India and with International exposure, they are well equipped with the knowledge and art of balancing flavours and extracting natural colours from ingredients whilst cooking a distinct ‘gravy’ for each dish on the menu.

We had a wonderful meal here , excellent food with lovely flavours and a really nice welcome from the staff. We were breaking a long journey up to Scotland and this was a great venue to eat en route not far from the motorway with easy parking outside. We would really recommend it and will definitely be coming here again.
