The curries are terrible and not constructed well... While spiced properly the spices used are whole, and plenty, so if you like to move from a whole mouth of cardimen to a whole mouth of star anise Royal India is for you...

As for me, even McDonalds over the road would have been a better vote

I couldn't even eat half my curry because, even though we requested mild, it was really hot. We even confirmed with the waited that it was mild, but my runny nose and flaming throat said otherwise! The samosas were good, the paratha was average and quite small for $5. Another thing I didn't like was that you have to order rice separately with the curries, so it's not such good value as other Indian places. I won't go there again, but it's probably ok if you like chilli.

After reading the reviews on this site we had high expectations.

The service was typical Cairns blah. The food was ordinary to say the least. Portion size - 9 Prawns in an entree, 6 Prawns in a main. I do not appreciate being ripped off.

Do your wallet a favour, take it elsewhere.

Excellent food, very authentic, staff are very good also and the prices are reasonable. At the moment until they get their licence it is BYO so it is good value.
