Thriving family business at the Royal Spice Nawabi


OYAL SPICE in Darton is continuing to grow in popularity as news of its high quality, authentic cuisine spreads among curry lovers. Ten years ago the building that houses the restaurant on Station Road was nothing more than a run down working mens’ club but thanks to the ongoing support of its loyal customers, Royal Spice has become a thriving family business. Owner Zaff Hussain has shown his gratitude to customers by continuously improving the restaurant and supporting the local community. “We are truly grateful for the support our customers have given us over the years,” says Zaff. “We give something back to the community by sponsoring a local junior football team as well as the Rose and Crown football team. We have also become heavily involved with local primary schools

throughout Barnsley by holding cookery classes for the children, teaching them about Indian culture and authentic cuisine.” To improve customers’ dining experience the Royal Spice has recently undergone a full refurbishment. Inside, the restaurant and bar areas have been modernised with fresh decor and contemporary dining furniture while outside the building has been enhanced with fresh paint plus new signage and lighting. But it isn’t just the setting that’s attracting more customers through the Royal Spice’s doors. “Our high quality food and first class service is definitely what keeps regular customers coming back and recommending the restaurant to their friends and family. “We provide authentic home-cooked style dishes with full flavour to give customers a real taste of India, rather than serving up more commercial dishes. “Our talented kitchen team is led by an excellent head

chef who has more than 23 years’ experience working in restaurants throughout Bradford. He uses his own unique blend of spices to create our sauces. “Everything is freshly prepared so we can alter strengths to customers’ requirements and there is an open window to the kitchen so customers can see chefs at work.” The Royal Spice menu features a wide variety of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, including favourites such as kormas, baltis and tikkas. The restaurant is particularly well known for its fresh handmade naan breads and its varied grilled dishes, which include chicken tikka sizzler, lamb chop and light fish options. Meanwhile for those looking to try something different there is a delicious selection of unique dishes put together by the head chef using his own recipes to create exclusive flavours for the Royal Spice. Sundays also provide a great opportunity for diners to try new dishes during the popular buffet, held between 2pm-10pm, costing just £6.95 for adults and £4 for children. “Both our food and drink are very reasonably priced so family, friends, couples or colleagues can enjoy a great night out without having to worry about a huge bill,” says Zaff. “For large parties we have a separate function room, complete with dance floor, that can cater for up to 85 people. For such bookings we are happy to create a tailor made buffet or banquet menu.” The Royal Spice was named ‘Restaurant of the Year 2007’ by which also gave the restaurant a high recommendation earlier this year. In addition the Royal Spice gained four stars in Barnsley Council’s food hygiene awards. The restaurant is open seven nights a week for diners and those who want a takeaway. A delivery service available Monday to Thursday.
