The food was delicious, prepared fresh and promptly, and the servers were both nice and attendant. The lamb korma and naan are incredible. We had a great experience and would definitely go again!

Wow, what a meal! We absolutely loved our experience at Royal Garden. From the moment we walked in, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the service was prompt. We had a mixed platter for the entree, which came on a sizzling plate, then opted for two curries: the goan fish curry and lamb vindaloo. Both were impeccably balanced amd flavourful, although watch out, they aren't kidding when they say Indian hot is hot! Luckily we love all things spicy, but if you don't you can ask for mild or medium. We paired that with garlic naan (divine) and mango lassi which is worth a try if you've never had it before. We ate so much food we could hardly manage to finish it all. Absolutely couldn't recommend this place high enough. It's our favourite Indian restaurant in town.

Such a great night out with very tasty dishes with just the right spice! My sister opted for hot and I opted for mild and we were both very happy with our meals. The service is welcoming and friendly and the day core was prefect for an Indian Restaurant. I will be recommending to everyone.

This was my first time using First Table and I was not disappointed. The service was excellent. Our waiter was informative, patient and interested in what we had to say. And the food, OMG, very tasty and filling. My husband was impressed. Will definitely be back.

I had the best Indian meal I've had here, last night! 2x crispy, hot samosa, a gooey and plump cheese and onion naan, rich, creamy butter chicken with meat you could tell had been marinated to absorb flavor, a sweet and cold mango lassi, plus the warm sponginess of a gulab jamun dessert! Absolutely loved it, recommend, and will be going back soon!

We had an enjoyable time. The decor and background music were pleasant, and the staff prompt and friendly. The cheese and onion Naan was delicious, as were the entrees and mains. The size of the portions were more than adequate.

I have never been disappointed with the food here. Everything is full of flavour and delicious! But the staff seem miserable to be there, and always seem to want you out of there the second you have finished your main. They either need new front of house or to learn the phrase 'service with a smile'!

Amazing service from Royal Garden. The meals were exactly as we had ordered, the coconut rice is the best I've had in a long time and the Kashmiri Naan is so delicious. I ordered the Mushroom, Lamb Masala and would highly recommend it. Best Indian Restaurant in Palmerston North.

Greeting on arrival could do with a little more warm enthusiasm, maybe waiter a little on the quiet side. Offered choice of seating. Service from being seated was excellent, quietly efficient. Good atmosphere in restaurant even though early and only another couple dining. Cultural music on a monitor playing which added ambiance along with choice of interior decorations.
We were a party of three, choosing a mixed vege platter for entree, very tasty. We chose a vegetarian masala with a chicken vindaloo & Achari Chicken accompanied by very light garlic naans.. All delicious flavors. Thank you Royal Garden yet again another delightful evening. I do highly recommend this beautiful restaurant.

Great food at a great price and great service. A lovely place to eat with the exception of the young couple letting their child watch loud clips on an iPad.

This was my first time using a first table booking and first visit to this restaurant . The service was fantastic and the restaurant was very tidy and comfortable. We had a chicken dish and a beef dish. Both had lovely flavours however the beef was a bit chewy which let the dish down. Definitely eat the Kashmiri naan, it was scrumptious. Overall we had a very enjoyable dinner out thank you.

The food here is delicious! We have been a few times now and have never been disappointed. Their Kashmiri Naan is devine! If the waiters didnt look like they hate their jobs this place would be a 10/10! Still always an excellent evening.
