The super kind folks at Royal have been doing knockout Pakistani and Indian food for two decades, and they know how to make you feel at home, whether home is Montrose or Punjab. If you're looking for a family meal of beef seekh kebabs or just a chicken curry and a lassi (yogurt drink), Jaffar and Rahim Ali will take you in, wrap you in naan and keep you warm on cold days or cool you off with gola ganda (Indian snow cones) on hot days.
