Haven't been here for several years as there are definelty 2 better in Reading. But we were in town in the evening and fancied a curry and thought about giving it a try. It was very busy. But we got a table no problem. Service was good throughout and the food was really high quality. They can clearly cope when... More

I was up in Reading for an interview and just wanted a quiet meal to myself. I was seated instantly even if I had to wait 5 minutes for someone to greet me. It was very busy so this is forgiven. I was sat out of the way from the rest of the customers as I was on my own... More

My husband and I love this place! It's a great local spot and the food is always delicious and authentic. Be sure to get the Peshawari Nan to start! Centrally located, but they have weird hours (they don't open for dinner til 6pm) so check beforehand!

Arrived 9pm on 29th December, aware they closed at 10:30pm. Was frantically ushered to a table for two. One minute later the waiter came back and asked if we had a reservation. His manager seemed to be unhappy with him. We were given menus. In the next 5 minutes 3 different staff members came and asked for our order. The... More

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.
