Love the curry and the service was fantastic. Had lemon rice and a lamb Jalfrezi. Washed down with a few cold beers.

Visiting Southampton for an away match and it's great to have a good meal beforehand First of all I managed to park in a great spot on the other side of Itchen Bridge so ensuring a quick getaway after the match then very happy to see that the Royal India was open at 5:00 p.m. which meant I didn't have...

Outside of the centre of the city just over the Itchen bridge this is a small restaurant which doesn't look much from the outside. The food is good, friendly service and great value for money. Mid week they do a deal for £12.90 which includes starter, main, rice or naan and a side dish. Good size portions will visit again.
