My wife and I recently dined at Royal Spice. We shared a starter and while it was very nice it did not compare to our main courses which were both excellent. We shared a bottle of Rose wine which was very good and very reasonably...priced. The staff were very pleasant and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Unfortunately, the background music was very unusual. As we were sitting close to a ceiling speaker we couldn't ignore the bizarre mix of MOR music about which we overheard another group comment negatively. At one stage, we had to endure an instrumental version of Silent Night on a saxophone. In September!More

Awful I had a upset stomach eating 2 days ago king prawn bhuna with rice and nan and drinks. I believe the king prawn were gone of that they served me . Since after that experience I will not ever visit this restaurant as also...some of my friends who visits the have said that some staff don't wash there hands properly when they use the lavatory. When the restaurant is busy. Which makes this restaurant an alarm bell on hygiene matters. Eyes can be deceiving please all customers should see how there food is made in kitchen before it comes to tableMore
