Simply the Best!

Definitely my No.1 Indian restaurant. Always friendly and welcoming. The very best curries, and the Chicken Tikka Sizzler and Peshwari naan are to die for!!! Food quality always consistent, as is the service. Looking forward to my next visit.

This is the second time I have visited Royal Spice. The first time was a great meal, such good value for money and £3 a pint (cobra) and £3 for a glass of wine! Would recommend garlic and cheese nann! And the sizzling platter for 2 is also very good! We had sizzling platter,masala fish to start, 2curries,chips,rice and nann... More

Had a Saturday night takeaway from here via Just Eat for collection. They were pretty busy early evening, which is always a good sign. They don't do Beef dishes anymore, so the menu on Just Eat is wrong. They replaced my beef dish for lamb, which was ok with me, Overall, the food was very good & at a very... More

Food excellent quality, plentiful and exceptional value. We had a groupon but will defiantly return without one! The only slight negative which prevents me giving the Rotal Spice 5* is that the decor needs a touch up (food stains on walls!!) and the service could be better (had a pint brought out when we said no, has to get up...

We don't often go out for a curry, as you might have guessed by a lot of our reviews, that Italian is our preferred cuisine!! However, whilst visiting our daughter, husband and new grandson, we decided to meet up with her lovely in-laws and go to one of their favourite restaurants - Royal Spice in Darton. The welcome, service and... More

We visited recently and used a groupon deal which was exceptional value. The food was lovely, especially the main courses, rice and nan. We tried the signature chicken nawabi dish - very, very tasty. Portion sizes are huge and we couldn't eat it all - however, we did take some home - far too good to waste! The restaurant was... More

Some places rely on heat and nothing else for their curries - here I love the blends of herbs and spices that give proper flavour to the dishes without blowing off your head! Also its the only Indian restaurant I've been to where the all the serving staff seem to have English as their first language - and in the... More
