Great food and service

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... read 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

Been before for the buffet on a Sunday and thought we'd go for an evening meal one day. The food is divine, the staff are really friendly and the service is quick. Definitely worth the money. It is also a family friendly restaurant. I would highly recommend Royal Spice.

Best curry I've had outside of India and that's no exaggeration. The balance of spices was just superb and portion sizes generous to say the least. Staff were plentiful and friendly and the owner is present checking on customers too. All in all a great place for a meal, reasonable prices too. We will return
