Highly recommend. Delicious food with so many vegetarian options. Not overly spices or drowned in sauces. Naan was good but not exceptional...but certainly not a big deal. Our 2nd time there and we will be back!

Royal spice is my favourite restaurant in Kilkenny. We love Indian food and royal spice is by far the best Indian we have ever had. The staff are extremely friendly and very welcoming. There is a great atmosphere in the restaurant and every time I go in, even if just to collect take away, it is almost always busy, which... More

We have no good Indian restaurants where we live, so when this was recommended we decided to check it out. Glad we did. Royal Spice isn't your typical balti house.

We had a terrific Indian meal in Royal Spice - rich and authentic tastes - each dish with distinct flavours which differentiates it from other similar restaurants. We will go back.
