The Royal India is a favourite of ours and we can't recommend it highly enough. It is the best In Indian restaurant in Newton Mearns in our opinion. Their buffet is fantastic and great value for money - a wide selection, always hot and most importantly delicious. We find the Royal India to have a relaxing atmosphere and have yet... More

We have been for the evening buffet 3 times now but not really impressed. Fine first time but wasn't so great the following times so think we will give it a miss. Just not the quality other restaurants give at times. Lamb was a bit tough. Buffet not expensive so I guess you get what you pay for. Staff friendly... More

Having lived near this restaurant for a number of years but never visited, a visit was long overdue. We visited on a Tuesday night and sampled the buffet offering. When we advised the waiter that we were both vegetarian he advised that as there was only a few selections we could choose another dish from the main menu, which was... More

We enjoyed the buffet night at the Royal with lots of tasty options including chicken and lamb dishes. The starters - poppadoms and chicken and vegetable pakora - are generous and brought to the table then customers can help themselves to as much as they want from the buffet table and go back for more. It is a local restaurant... More

It has changed hands. The food was good. But the atmosphere, the comfort, and the presentation were awful. The table was too big for the seats. The lighting was so bright it was like being at the dentist's waiting room. The staff showed no attempt at engaging with the customers. Worst of all was the table in front of the... More

I've been going to The Royal India since it opened decades ago and have always enjoyed the food. The new owner ,Gary, has just finished a refurbishment which gives the restaurant a cool contemporary look. He has also refreshed the menu as well. The prices still compare well against other local Indian restaurants.The food is still excellent as are the... More
