We have used the Royal Bengal for several takeaways but a couple of weeks ago we had an experience that has put us off ever having another meal from the restaurant. Perhaps we should have seen the signs when we had our chicken pakora starters. The batter was very greasy when compared to previous meals. We normally have left overs... More

Excellent. Have used this place 3/4 ,times food is excellent one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever used. The young lady who takes your order is so nice very helpful when giving advice .The restaurant and toilets very clean. Food is first class and good portion sizes. I would recommend either sit in or takeout

Following recommendations on this site we decided to check out this restaurant on a visit to Nairn. The girl who greeted us on arrival, Elaine, was very warm and friendly. The food was excellent and I would highly recommend this restaurant. The free kola cube flavoured shots at the end of our meal was a nice gesture too! The friendly... More

I am normally quite satisfied with my food from The Royal Bengal. However, I do not expect to be using them again after my last encounter. I must add that I only started using them as they use Just Eat and the Indian I would normally use does not provide its services online. I do not know if this was... More

The food and service were first class, and very reasonably priced. The staff guided us as how much food to order. I have been to some restaurants were the staff just keep nans pakora etc coming and you end up with far too much.

We've just been to the Royal Bengal for a quick buffet meal and what a lovely surprise. My parents have lived in Nairn for nearly 20 years and have never ventured into any of the restaurants in the centre of town, as we were visiting from the Midlands (and have practically been brought up on curries!), we decided to give...

Was nice and quiet when we came here for dinner. Restaurant is small but booth tables are nice and cosy. We had poppadoms and mixed pakora for starter and Chasni and Makkani for mains with rice and garlic naan. Everything was lovely, especially the curry sauces. Waitress was lovely and attentive. Will try the buffet next time we come. :)
