While Restoring you can activate PowerShell switch -verbose. This will provide on screen information about what is actually happening during the Restore Process.

Restore-SPSite -Identity <SiteCollectionURL> -Path <Backup file> [-DatabaseServer <DatabaseServerName>] [-DatabaseName <ContentDatabaseName>] [-HostHeader <Host header>] [-Force] [-GradualDelete] [-Verbose]

Once you verify there is not error. The Restore will be 100% valid from data point of view.

The area you should actually look into should be Customized things like web part , styles etc.
