Very nice meal and evening, the staff were very friendly nothing was too much trouble even though we hadn't booked and the restaurant was very busy being a Friday night they still accommodated us. Nothing was spared meal was very nice and good quality well worth a visit and we will be certainly returning

Fancied something spicy for lunch whilst out Xmas shopping in Reading, and came along the "Royal Tandoori". My partner and I both had the lunchtime set meal special, at just £6.99, and it was really nice, very tasty and plenty of it, and such fantastic value. Very impressed!

It has one of the most memorable biryani i have ever eaten- savoury with nice hint of spices, tender lamb and fully packed of flavours. Place is decently decorated, spacious, family and kids friendly, wheelchair accessible. Staff and service is average but not bad either. Location is super accessible- right by bus stop at Duke Street, down the Jacksons Corner.

Coming here for years. Take out can take a little long so call in before you decide to sit there and wait.

I order gobi manchurian, chicken tikka masala, methi and cashew chicken, pilau rice and naan and I have to say in the two years I've been coming here I have never been disappointed. Service is always brilliant, food is lovely and authentic and prices are fair. Keep up the good work!

Visited this restaurant recently with 12 of my work colleagues, the food was tasteless almost inedible the staff were miserable didn't smile once sighed when they brought the wrong dish to the table despite it being their mistake, the food took such a long time and I wouldn't have minded the wait if it was actually edible when it arrived,...

Food was extraordinary! would strongly recommend trying it. This is not your run of the mill Indian 'balti' restaurant.

Went for a meal after work and it was the first time I had been here. Great place and a real buzzing atmosphere. Service was good and I was really impressed by the size of the portions. Couldn't believe they didn't have a Prawn Bhuna on the menu but the chef was more than willing to cook it for me.... More
