Simply lovely :)

Decided to give this place a try as in the area for just one night. had a very tasty veggie thali with a variety of little dishes. Very nice indeed. Friends had various other dishes and fresh steaming Nan bread was lovely and puffy! :) will certainly eat here again:)

Busy welcoming restaurant with good food in great location in market square. Worth a visit. It doesn't have a license but this is not a problem as there is a Coop opposite.

This is the second time we have eaten at The Royal Spice and it did not disappoint! Once again excellent food, service and ambiance.

Second time in Settle but our first time eating here, we were a little nervous at first after reading some of the reviews. Have to say the nerves were totally unneeded. The service is excellent, the food is really good quality and with a "bring your own booze" policy the pricing is very, very good. Definitely be back

We are here on a Sunday evening and were soon joined before long by many others. Service was friendly and efficient and the food came quickly and was delicious. We would come back, given the opportunity of passing through Settle again.

We have eaten here twice now and the food is outstanding. On both occasions we had friends eat with us and they too commented on how lovely their meal was. Not a large restaurant but large enough and nice decor. On the main square in Settle so a window seat allows you to take in some of what is going... More

Avoid and don't waste your money. We had a takeaway which included chicken tikka masala and lamb rogan josh. The masala sauce was the colour of dish water and tasted of nothing but hot spice, I have never tasted anything like it in all my years of eating Indian food. The oil on both dishes had to be drained off... More

We eat here quite often and also have takeaways. The staff are friendly and the food is good. Wide choice on the menu but the Jaflong dishes are excellent. Not licensed but take your own and no corkage - if you forget the Co-op is just over the road!
