Wanted to have takeaway on Friday night and after having a look on trip advisor decided to try The Royal Spice. What a great choice - fantastic service, really good curry and a great price. First time I have been there and will definitely go again.

We ordered a variety of dishes including chicken tikka, aloo chana, chana paneer, pillou rice, peshwari naan, chicken Rogan Josh, and chicken Madras.

First time been here but best Indian take away we have had in a long time. On the "spicy" side of average which is fine, just be conscious when ordering. Will definitely be back again.

Have had three takeaways from here and the food is really very good, every time. Not too oily either. Conveniently located opposite the Cornish! Chicken tikka dhansak is up there!

The Royal Spice is a take away only restaurant. The food is fresh and good helpings. It has all the classic curries available, there isn't many vegetarian special dishes but there standard curries are great quality. I would recommended and also return to The Royal Spice. Only one issue the poppadoms weren't very nice, I can forgive them for that... More
