I fancied a curry and heard good things about this place so gave it a try. Very nice food and great service, the Jalfrazi was particularly good and nan bread is very well made too. Definitely visiting again at some point. No beer served but not a problem

If you are quite tired of Thai foodfare, try this. Its squeezed amongst the shops along the Kamala beach spread. You could see it walking along the beach, small set up but good enough. Food is generally okay, quite authentic. Ambience is nice enough as its by the beach. Owner is Babar, a well spoken person, friendly. Service is okay,... More

This small quaint hotel overlooking the beach in Kamala is a must for Indian food lovers, the food is amazing. Personal service with a smile and food offered at customers choice of hot medium or mild. I have frequented this establishment on previous trips to Phuket but it seems to get better every time, we enjoyed our food so much... More

The Royal India Restaurant is a little gem! After eating a number of water downed Thai vegetable curries it was so good to eat food with lots of flavour and spice. Being a vegan and eating out is difficult at the best of times. The food and service was great! I would recommend eating here so anyone as it is... More

We decided to try this restaurant after reading other rave reviews about this Indian restaurant in Kamala and boy they did not lie, the best Indian I have ever had in my life, the naan bread was to die for, Ali was super nice and accomodating for my husband and myself who we asked if he could make a vegetarian...

Went for an early lunch. Ordered Palak paneer, daal, fish tikka and aloo gobhi. We were the only people there so had the best spot looking out to the sunny beach. The food was well prepared and taste of the Fish (fried not on tandoor) had a good flavour. the owner is the chef too- so the service is slow... More

The place is located facing the beach. It is a small restaurant that may not look so inviting. The food was actually very nice with good portions. We tried the samosa (plate of 4), palak paneer, shakti dal, garlic and cheese nan. The service was a bit slow. I found the price a bit expensive for Thailand. Overall, if you... More

Food is amazing. We love indian food and this one was absolutely one of best we had world wide. There are many vegetarian options and also big variety of meat dishes. Vegetarian Korma was exceptional. Garlic Naan - delicious. It has reasonable prices and you can basically sit on the beach and look at the sea while you eat. It's... More
