The West Midlands is a hotbed of Indian cooking, and there can be few places in the UK that can boast as many high standard curry houses. Even the smallest town and village has their friendly neighbourhood dhal dealer, pakora provider and bhuna bringer, but there is a reason that the most knowledgeable punters of the region head to Abbots Bromley to get their fill. The Royal Ruchi on Bagot Street in the centre of the village was the first Indian restaurants in Stafford or the surrounding towns to offer a tasting menu, which is designed to expand the minds and the expectations of curry connoisseurs. That means everything from authentic street food from India to gourmet regional specialities such as grilled Achari king prawns, traditional Kashmiri style lamb, Goan masala sea bass with fresh asparagus and a top notch dessert in the form of carrot fudge with pistachio kulfi. There is wine pairing for all tasting menus, and advance booking is absolutely essential: so book a table now.
We had a lovely meal, we all thoroughly enjoyed it, the food was great and the service was too, explained dishes can be adapted to suit taste if wanted a particular dish but would prefer milder or spicier, would be cooked to suit. Would certainly recommend. Lovely!
Great restaurant, staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and don't hover around waiting for you to finish. The menu is some what limited with many of the hot and spicy dishes being removed which is a shame, and the prices appear to have gone up to. Great night put with friends.
