The food in the Royal India is very good indeed, the staff are very welcoming and they even have craft beers! I've been here for dinner with work colleagues a number of times, and never been disappointed. Love it!

This is a great restaurant to get a taste of Indian cuisine. Nice variety, well trained and friendly staff. Our waitress (Pretty) was very knowledgeable and applied suggestive selling very well without being pushy and overbearing.

I normally frequent Bukhara for my Indian meal fix in Sandton Square but came by this place by chance and thought I'd give it a try. I was glad I did. The place is very atmospheric with great decor. Service was friendly and efficient. My Chicken Tikka Massala was delicious...not too sweet and much more spicy than versions I've had (and now avoid) in the UK. Free poppadums, followed by some delightfully light naan bread made for a great accompaniment to my curry. Will come again.

Royal India in Alberton is a true hidden gem in the South East of Joburg. No matter what one orders, the chefs never fail to impress. Rich flavours, guaranteed freshness and enough hot stuff to burn a hole in the floor meets one's pallet with aplomb every time.
