About The Royal Indian
About the restaurant
The royals of India took in everything from Maharajas to Nawabs to Khans, Sahibs and even a Zamindar or two for good measure. The cuisine of the monarchs of the north of the country – the Mughals – has formed the basis of the Indian restaurant scene in the United Kingdom, and the decadent dishes that were once the preserve of only the highest echelons of society in the Raj are commonplace in the West. One such venue at which one can sample the very best of Indian cuisine is The Royal Indian on Melton Road in Leicester, right in the heart of the curry house drag of the Golden Mile. They specialise the family favourites: tandoori meats and bread, classic curries and rice dishes that we all know and love. If you’re looking for a proper curry house in Belgrave or on the Golden Mile, then you need to head to the corner of Arbour Road and The Royal Indian – book ahead, though, as they will get busy on occasion and you wouldn’t want to miss out.
