Beautiful meal, definitely living up to Best Vegetarian Restaurant award, and totally worth the tram trip from Nottingham ( or a train or road trip from further away )

I am not a vegetarian and will often avoid vegetarian eating on the grounds that it is more worthy than enjoyable. Not so at Cafe Roya. I go there for the fascinating, flavour filled dishes which are unique to my experience. And don't think you will come out still hungry - the food is filling as well as delicious and... More

When I last reviewed Cafe Roya back in 2013 (not long after it first opened) I was concerned about service. Thankfully this no longer appears to be an issue and even though we're not vegetarians we've been back 3 or 4 times (including twice in Jan 2017). Interesting menu which changes regularly. Great food and we also recently tried the... More

Lovely lively but smart place to eat for vegetarians with friendly helpful staff too. Vegetarians gave the food 5/5 but the omnivores only 3/5, so unfortunately this is the average score. taxi drivers couldn't find it without our directions!

Cafe roya should be regarded as one of the great treasures of Beeston and should be respected. It caters specifically towards vegetarians and vegans which was definitely an incentive for me to visit. I didn't know what to expect when to visited cafe roya; though I was aware of great reviews. Intrigue got the better of me as I finally... More

This was my first visit to Cafe Roya. The restaurant was tastefully decorated and it seemed nice to have a first floor table by the window. The food was absolutely delicious! I've given this restaurant 4 stars (very good) instead of 5 (excellent) because of the slow service. Whether it was to get some water or to serve the food,... More

Absolutely delicious, and probably one of the best veggie restaurants in the UK. Great to see it so busy too. So good, I m writing this a mere 30 minutes after arriving home. Great food, good wine, friendly staff and great service. 5 stars + would be more appropriate 👍

We visited Roya with some carnivorous friends having seen some award winning reviews. The place itself is pleasant and relaxing, the staff friendly and helpful, but the food exceeded expectation. All of us, including the sceptical meat eaters, were really impressed by the quality and presentation. All of the dishes were so tasty and plentiful. My dish had a range... More

What more can I say about this place that hasn't been said already. How lucky we are to have such an absolute jewel of a restaurant here in Beeston. Whether you are a meat eater, (and by that I don't include the odd breed of people that seem to think that ONLY meat is food - for clarification this IS... More
