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.
A fabulous meal and fabulous service, Royal Rucchi never fails to impress me, recommended to all, a great all round experience and well worth a visit.
fantastic meal, attentive staff. wonderful food and masses of it.. My only complaint is that if it's quite the staff hang around the table and it's very off putting.Also the minute you sit down they start asking what you want to drink and are a bit annoying at that point because you want to enjoy the whole experience not be rushed into snap decisions. they also could do with sorting the background music out as it was rather loud and not in keeping with the ambiance of the place. Otherwise it is a great curry house and is relatively peaceful even when it's busy.
You can airways guarantee a fabulous evening, the staff are attentive without being in your face, food is always excellent and they cater for dietary requirements, which is essential for us.
