There is a review on here that is so ludicrous it's made me feel the need to write my own. The Royal Spice is a beautifully laid out restaurant. All the staff have brilliant Customer... More

As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted by the friendly and welcoming staff. I visited on a Sunday evening with my wife and 11 year old daughter.
