Always good

We think this is the best Indian in Faversham by a long way, but of course it is personal choice. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is fantastic and very reasonably priced

I ordered an Indian take away from this restaurant last night and found a used cigarette butt in the food. I phoned the resturant straight away and spoke to the manager who did not apologise but instead kept telling me that this has never happened before. I was refused a refund and therefore spent a lot of money on food... More

I arrived to collect the food and was disappointed to find it not ready, they offered me a beer whilst... More

Food very good, service spoilt by continually attending to take aways which impacted on our food delivery being slow.

It's nothing fancy, but the food is good and plentiful and the staff are friendly and attentive. We go here in preference to other curry houses in Fav.

This is a pleasant and comfortable 50-seater restaurant with modern décor and a standard high-street Indian menu. At the risk of sounding pretentious I should preface this review by declaring probably a wider experience of Indian food than most, having worked in India; travelled extensively throughout India and Pakistan; acted as one of the principal reporters for the Curry Club...

We had food delivered, so i can't comment much on the restaurant itself, we just popped in to collect a menu. Service on the phone was very good - polite, clear and very friendly. Delivery was prompt and friendly. The menu is varied and i cannot rave enough about the thali - excellent idea, and perfect for an undecided mind!... More

Don't be distracted by bubbling Bllywood-style fountains at the door, and don;t confuse the Royal with the other-similar appearing curry houses in town. This one is the best. Vegetarian food is excellent with teh best paneer tikka I've ever had.
