Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When I first went in I realised that I’d forgotten my phone, even before having a seat. I told them I’d be back after getting my phone from the nearby motel where I was staying. And as promised I went back and this time I...was seated. Although presented a menu no one came to take even my drink order even after 12 minutes of waiting. Being a Monday evening, there was only another couple in this restaurant that seats about fifty at a time. I decided that this was enough waiting and they were not serious about the service or giving me a dining experience.More

You can't go wrong eating here. Rogan Josh, Lamb Korma.. Both excellent, in terms of texture, taste, spice level. Highly enjoyable.

We ate here during a visit to Palmerston North for a tournament. The atmosphere is really nice - a lot of effort has been put into the decoration and furniture, which makes the meal out more of an event. The staff were really friendly and...welcoming. The Chicken Tikka Masala (hot) was tasty, less sweet than some I’ve had elsewhere, which worked well. Everyone else enjoyed their meal also. I would eat here again next time I’m visiting Palmy.More

It’s a thumbs down from me for charging $1 to take leftover dinner home. Not the NZ way. Food was ok. Service was excellent until they charged us a surprise extra $1.

We had a very nice meal here - the food was tasty - the Kashmiri Naan was very good - as well we liked the Palek Paneer and the Lamb Korma we ordered - all very filling and good. The mains came with rice which...was fine. We would definitely return!More

Went there for dinner for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. The place was brightly lit unlike most other Indian restaurants and the furniture was rather flamboyant which adds to the atmosphere. We ordered the Onion Bhaji and Murg Tikka as starters, Palak Paneer...and lamb korma as mains. The onion bhaji was not dipped in batter and deep fried. It was rolled with spices and chick pea and pan fried. Have to say we preferred this style over the common type we get from other Indian restaurants around Palmy. The Murg Tikka was nicely seasoned and soft. The lamb korma was average but the Palak Paneer was better than most we tried. Service was excellent, one of the cook even came to our table and explain the dish. Overall: A+More

We had dinner here recently on a Friday night and sadly the experience did not live up to our expectations given the other positive reviews on TA. Service was nonexistent to the extent when we wanted more drinks it was quicker to go up to...the counter and order them. Considering there were only twelve other diners in the near empty restaurant, this was poor. Our meals were okay, good authentic flavours but the goat curry was tuff. Could have been so much better.More

Palmerston North is quite well served for restaurants - it deserves a better reputation than it tends to get. Royal Garden is one of several very good Indian options. You'll get friendly and attentive service, and generous portions of excellent food, for a modest price.

The food here was very nice and filling. I ordered medium which was more towards the mild side, but i find this with most Indian restaurants as they air on the side of cautious. The goat Bhunna was recommended by the waitress, & was my...first time eating it. It was delicious and tender, and the sauce was fantastic! Totally recommend and very spacious for larger groups.More

Came here for a work function and found the establishment to be a beacon of welcoming and hospitality. Service was probably the best I have experienced in town. The atmosphere was relaxing and inclusive. I will share my experience here with all of my peers....With the countless Indian restaurants in town, this by far is the pinnacle of them all.More

We stopped off in Palmerston on our road trip to Wellington. We went for dinner at the Royal Garden Indian after seeing the reviews on trip advisor and I must say I wasn’t disappointed! From the outside it just looks like a take away (the...sign is a bit dated) but don’t let this put you off! The inside is lovely! The food was really good and the service was great! Would recommend! It was good value for money too!More
