“Lovely Indian meal!”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Visited The Royal India whilst staying with my boyfriend in Dinas, lovely little restaurant! Had been to collect takeaways before, but this was our first time dining in. Went on a Sunday evening and although the restaurant was fairly empty, the service was great and you felt welcome. We ordered poppadoms to share as a starter, which came with pickles, mango chutney and raita.

For mains, we both decided to order the non-vegetarian Thali platter (includes seekh kebab, lamb and chicken tikka, lamb and prawn curry, chicken tikka masala, mint sauce, naan, basmati rice - see photo). At £12.80, we weren't sure it would be worth the price but it definitely was. It was great fun trying all the different dishes and the lamb curry was to die for!

As a major curry fiend, I can safely say that this was a lovely meal and I know that I will be back again!

“Best Indian in the area!”
Reviewed 23 December 2013 via mobile

Came here for a Christmas treat with my wife having heard good things from friends, we were certainly not disappointed! The place itself is very modern, staff very polite and attentive. As for the food, it really is very good indeed and portion size will not let you down. Quick service and food was freshly cooked and hot, we shall certainly be returning soon or taking advantage of the take away service that they also offer!

“Royal Indian ”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

My husband & I came here on a Sunday night. Service was prompt, all our needs met & all in a nice relaxed atmosphere. The staff are attentive & cheerful. The food is of high standard, we had a main each, and shared a rice, a side & a naan read. The rice is enough for two people as is the side. We were stuffed! The food came hot & freshly cooked. It's not overly priced, as some Indian restaurants are. We had a starter each, a main each & shared the side, rice & naan with drinks came rounded up £26! Great!

“great evening”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We had a great evening at Royal India. We advised them we were taking an elderly disabled relative and they made every provision to our request. Staff were very attentive and food was really first class. Thanks to all the staff for making an old lady very happy. We would certainly come again when in the area.
