I visited the local area to visit family and fancied an Indian, nothing like my local but still good food! Nothing special but the place was clean, staff were friendly and the price was reasonable! As I don't know the area I don't know how it compares to others. Thanks for the welcome thou!

Have eaten here a couple of times now. Very handy if you're staying in the Browns, immediately across the road. Nice variety in the menu, all the things you see elsewhere, plus a couple of new ones. Well priced and well presented. Able to offer dishes not officially listed on the menu. All tasting fantastic. Would definitely recommend

I've lived in Tavistock for many years and this is consistently the best in the town, yes occasionally we try the others "just in case" they have upped their game but it is always no and we are left wondering "why did we do that?" - My wife is from Birmingham where arguably I've experienced some of the best tasting...

Totally brilliant! Was eating from another Indian in town but was recommended to try the royal spice by a friend and now I shall never change. The owner is so wonderful and always remembers you. The other are also polite and have good knowledge about the food. Such great tasting food! I really do recommend.

The vegetarian side dishes are amazing in them selves and the main meals excellent - having been spoilt for choice for for good quality curry in the midlands of England for the last 15 years I can honestly say this comes very high up on my list of favourites - here in Tavi of all places! definitely strongly recommend.

Another brilliant takeaway for Tavistock. This is not the cheapest takeaway food you will buy, but the taste and flavours are out of this world. Attention to the blend of flavours is spot on, and you will not be disappointed. To be recommended.

After deliberating on evening meal we selected this as our choice. The food was excellent, we had a selection dishes that were all very well cooked and a good choice of different styles to suit all palates. The chicken curry I selected had some of the best pieces of chicken I have had in a takeaway curry and I would... More
