This is one of the new restaurants in the Eatery at Eastridge located near the back. Not a lot of table space but they do have a counter that overlooks the kitchen. They had a menu stuck on the wall by the counter as well as a pin board. They had the G tiffin of the day so I tried that. The tiffin was quite colourful, three layers with three different items. The top layer had a cucumber salad. The Madras fish curry was in the second and rice in the third. The portion was decent and the flavour really good. It was spicy though so it may not suit everyone. The mango lassi was refreshing alongside it. As I was overlooking the kitchen I could watch all the dishes go out. The kati rolls looked tasty but also quite small. Service was friendly. You order at the counter and they bring out the food once it's ready.
Took my mum over to Royal-G to have a taste of something different. She agrees that it’s not my mum’s Indian... it’s better. Loved Mr Singh’s Dry Spiced Fish Kati Roll and the Pakistani Lamb K’bob. The highlight for me, though, was the Blood Plum and Fennel Lassi. I’m not a fan of sweet lassis so the citrus-y, sour and savoury notes hit the spot just right. I loved the meal and the creativity put into it. Would definitely recommend.
Love this place. It was like an oasis since the lack of “different” indian food in Auckland. Only tried it once so can’t say it’s the best, but potential best - could compete with Satya in my opinion.(I understand the difference in their settings and size if the menu, but for the flavours and creativity) Will definitely back to try more. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the great food.
