The Royal Delhi

If you’re thinking Indian, you’d be right. If you’re thinking curry and nothing else, you’re dead wrong. The Royal Delhi offers fantastic oriental cuisine, with a few western staples for pickier customers. The buzz is that this restaurant has friendly service and curries to turn chilli-haters into spice fundi’s. 

What’s On The Menu?

The Royal Delhi has a wide range of dishes, but one of the most popular is the Royal Delhi Prawns – 6 pan-fried prawns cooked in lemon butter and served with rice. If that’s not the definition of moreish, then what is? Perhaps the lamb madras, chicken tikka or Delhi curry special which includes sambals and papadums. They have a vast selection of spicy and mild curries to suit your taste buds.
 
They also have salads, grills – fillet and chops – and poultry dishes. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, you might be interested in trying their Crème Brule or chocolate mousse cake.
