The place was full when we arrived, but the waiter said there would be a table for 4 free in about 20 minutes that he would save for us. So off we went and duly came back after 20 minutes - to be told by the same waiter that he'd given the table to someone else as he didn't think... More

The restaurant was full after i took the last table. The restaurant is not licenced. I did not see a single Indian in the place - not unusual, I suppose for this type of restaurant.

Good food with one of the bigger Indian/Bangladeshi menus I've ever perused. I chose a Bangladeshi lamb dish whose name escapes me, unfortunately (starts with J!) - but not one with which I was familiar. It had a very distinct taste of lime and we both loved it. My wife's chicken massala was okay but not quite the same 'wow'... More

Six friend went on Wednesday 11th January, but do book as the Royal Spice was very busy even at 7pm! Excellent welcoming service superb menu with authentic Indian dishes some of us had not had before. A pleasure for the taste buds! No license but right near the Co-op if you need alcohol but the "Indian Champagne" was welcome too.... More

Nice cosy room, if a little cramped. Take your own booze and check your bill as the guy can't add up! Food was good, I had fish bhuna and is was very good, I think the chef is from Bradford so he knows what he is doing! I would go again.

The restaurant is perfect for a meal for two or a small group. There is a wide range of excellent quality food, we often go royal spice and we are never disappointed. The take away is equally as good. I would highly recommend royal spice!!
