We have been eating here at the Royal Tandoor the last couple of times in Patong. We have found Sunil and his staff to be very accomadating and extremely friendly. The food has always been of a great standard and there is something for everyone. I cannot go past the excellent buttered chicken and the awesome garlic naan bread, definately my favourites. Would definitely recommend to anybody visiting Patong to visit for a meal. Thank you again Sunil.

We visited the delightful Ivan Sunil and his Royal Tandoor twice during our week in Patong. Really very, very good Indian food at very reasonable prices - and we have eaten at Indian restaurants throughout the world.

Tandoori chicken, falling off the bone, onion bhajis, first class, chicken tikka, succulent, minced lamb and pea curry, unbelievably good, onion naan, simply to die for, vegetable samosas, vegetable samoreish, manager Ivan Sunil, a lovely man, service, five star. It really was a faultless experience - we would have eaten there every day but, like another reviewer, we felt it would be disrespectful of Thailand not to go to Thai restaurants - such as the excellent Sea Hag next door to the Royal Tandoor.

Having said that, we could have had Thai food in the Royal Tandoor too - Ivan employs two Indian chefs and two Thai chefs, and between them they can cook up just about anything. We saw one family group order fish and chips, curries, some Thai, and some Italian food - it all looked bloody good, and they were all clearly delighted with it.

Like the Sea Hag next door, this is fractionally more expensive than some of the el cheapo restaurants in Patong - a slap up meal for two, entrees and main courses, will cost you $25-$30 with drinks, and when we spent that much we couldn't finish it all. But it is worth every last cent. We really can't see the point of spending a few thousand on a holiday then worrying about a few dollars in the cost of a meal - we spent over $150 taking our daughter and her boyfriend out for a pretty average suburban Chinese the night before we left for Patong, so let's keep it in perspective. You get what you pay for, the Royal Tandoor offers big servings of first class food at a very reasonable price, five or six dollars for a big dish of curry, for heaven's sake, and every dish we tried was absolutely beautiful. Very, very highly recommended - we can't wait to go back next year.

We went here meaning to go to the Sea Hag next door. We decided the sea hag was too pricy and chose the royal tandoor instead. We weren't disappointed the service and the food were both exceptional the manager could not do enough to help us. I highly recommend.

It was great to have a meal in Phuket and have the whole family loving it, best meal we had while on holidays. We would of went back again but ran out of time and of course thought we should eat Thai food. Thumbs up to Indian in Thailand.

My girlfriend always raved about naan bread, now I understand why. Indian has now bumped up to the top of my list thanks to this restaurant. Ivan the waiter is soo friendly and accomodating he'd have our meal cooked to our preference every time without fail :) the Thai menu is also great. But after the amazing chilli chicken and butter chicken we couldn't go past the Indian menu night after night literally haha. We were surprised to be served a complimentary dessert on our last night :) can't wait to go back!! Thanks again Ivan :)
