“Excellent first impression”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Just had our first meal at this restaurant which had been recommended to me. I was a bit dubious after reading some of the reviews but can I assure everyone that the service was excellent, staff were on hand but unobtrusive and the food tasty. The samosas (previously described as soggy or similar) were lovely. Crisp pastry and spicy lamb which I would've happily had as a main. The garlic mushrooms in puri were also very tasty. The poppadoms were light and a perfect start. Next time, I want to try a dessert so may have to forego the starter, or have 2 starters instead of a main, as the mains were very filling. The restaurant was quite busy but the meals came quickly and I would have no qualms in advising people to try this place. Very reasonably priced at a cost of £44 for 3 of us with poppadoms, starters, mains with rice and a naan, which we couldn't eat as we were so full. We will certainly head back there in the not too distant future.

“A tad over-rated I think!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Came from Lincoln to try La Royale based on Trip Advisor excellent reviews. We usually go to the Aggra in Sleaford!
Have to say we were a bit underwhelmed! In our opinion,. althougt the food was tasty, not sure it really warrants all the rave reviews. Prefer the Aggra and some of the Indian restaurants we have in Lincoln. Had hoped the LR would beat them all hollow but in our opinion it doesn't at all! It is no better than a lot of other Indian Restaurants and we have been to dozens in the Lincoln/ Sleaford area. Feel a bit cheated - was expecting the greatest Indian food in Lincolnshire. Yes, it is a bit better than average but doesn't hit the heights we expected!

The frontage is really terrible and it is a bit cramped inside. Not worth the4 extra mileage.

“Don't judge a book by its cover!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

You might be forgiven for driving straight past this restaurant-we did until someone recommended it to us. Now though it is a firm family favourite-friendly staff, great food and spotlessly clean. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed-they deliver locally as well so you really have no excuse!

“What a waste of money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

We were recommended this restaurant as an excellent place to get a takeaway for my Grandsons 18th birthday. I can only say I am so disappointed as the samosas had no flavour, the chicken tikka massala was watery and half full and the balti had no nan bread with it. Overall really unhappy with our meal.
