The food from this place is well cooked and as tasty as it comes. Reasonably priced with good service, it comes highly recommended.

I cannot understand the good reviews. My wife and I picked up takeaway samosas and lamb tikka with rice for two. It was disgusting: particularly the inedible, stringy, tough 'lamb'. We ended up throwing it away and trying to overcome the poisonous aftertaste and diarrhoea the following day. Avoid.

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!
