My girlfriend is determined to make me like Indian food!

We visited this establishment this week and fairly early on in the night, around 6pm, as such the venue was quiet: rather relaxing to be honest. The decor and general establishment is very clean and almost minimalist. Met with a smile and welcome gesture; and promptly shown to our seats, where... read more

Welcomed with a smile, even though we hadn't booked. Seated and drinks served quickly. Food prompt and delicious and overall good value.

The best Indian in faversham by far. We have tried them all but now only use the royal. We use the takeaway service more than the restaurant and we always have a great meal.

A local recommended this Indian restaurant and we were not disappointed. The staff were courteous, efficient and smart. The menu was extensive and reasonably priced. The food portions were generous, well prepared and presented. Definitely happy to recommend.

I have been eating here for almost twenty years and I still love it! On this occasion I had salmon tikka and tandoori king prawns - both arriving on a sizzling hot plate - delicious! Always a friendly greeting and excellent service. Will continue to visit - hopefully for another twenty years!!

I visited this restaurant with my wife. My visit was poor. I should have said something at the time but the service was so poor I didn't bother. The restaurant wasn't busy and we were seated out of sight. We were basically ignored. When my prawn cocktail eventually arrived it looked good and tasted fine. Until something got caught in...

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
