Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

You know when you try out a restaurant for the first time and you're SO impressed that you have to go back to check if it really was that good? Well tonight was my second visit and, yes, I was right… it really is that...good. A lovely warm atmosphere, exemplary service, friendly staff and, above all, some of the best Asian food I have ever tasted. I can certainly feel a third visit coming on before too long.More

My favourite restaurant in the area. We brought my fiancé's grandma for her birthday, the staff were so friendly and accommodating that we couldn't ask for more. Bedford's best spot!

I work all around the UK and have had many a curry while on my travels. This restaurant is by far the best I have visited. I had a paneer chilli, this was a sweet and sour cheese dish with mixed peppers. Panner cheese was...perfectly cooked and absolutly lovely. For the main I had bhuteko masu which is a lamb dish cooked Napealese village style, the sauce was thick and very flavoursome and the generous portions of meat were so soft that I only used my fork for the whole meal. Some may think that the meat pieces were small, on the contrary they needed splitting with my fork. Garlic fried rice and a peshawari naan were also cooked to perfection. The staff at the restaurant deserve a mention, they are professional, helpful and very friendly and prompt. Unfortunately I did not get to meet the kitchen staff but they deserve as much, if not more praise for their excellent culinary skills. 10 out of 10 gents, I will be backMore

Have been eating here since it opened but recently it has gone downhill on more than one occasion. The service is bad, orders wrong, mains coming out before starters. Portions and quality is not as good recently. Owners are lovely but will not take criticism...or offer apologies on the night. Really disappointed as has been our favourite restaurant locally.More

We have tried many different Indian restaurants across Bedfordshire but Diya Royale for us 'wins hands down'. My husband had the Korma which was full of succulent Chicken with a silky smoothe and perfectly flavoured sauce. Furthermore the Special Fried Rice was 'special ' indeed....I had the Vegetable Biryani which never fails to impress, with plenty of freshly cooked vegetables - perfectly partnered with their signature Biryani sauce . Bringing the meal all together was the Peshwari Nan 'a pillow of deliciousness '. Can't highly recommend enough.....excellent food and first class service. A Gem in the Heart of the Kempston Community. Tracey and Andy .More
