Royal Ice and Spice Review by Sadaf Farooqui
Royal Ice and Spice is a restaurant located right opposite the Bundoo Khan and Roasters outlets on main Sindhi Muslim.It is situated right next to Hyder's. So as far as the menu goes, Royal offers a variety of popular food, including Chinese, at affordable rates.
The portion size is extremely good value formoney. For rolls, I would recommend you stick to the popular joints in Defence/Clifton. I had a kabab roll once at Royal, and did not find it up to the mark. Besides Chinese, barbecue, shawarma, soup, fried chicken (known better locally as "broast"), chaat/pani puri and rolls, Royal also offers ice cream, fresh juices and shakes that are actually quite delicious. And as far as the deals are concerned, We mostly go for the deals at Royal, because the prices are - especially for Karachi dwellers living in the so-called "posh" areas - to die for. The taste and quality of food at Royal is so good. So with that being aside, we ordered aChicken Burger, Rs 120, A Deal: Chicken Crispy Burger, Crispy Chicken Piece and French Fries, for Rs 205.
A soft drink came with this too. And if that wasn’t enough we also ordered aDeal: Chicken Reshmi Kababs, puri paratha's and a soft drink - for only Rs 150.
Whenever I order this, I have to get 2 leftover kababs packed to be taken home, since the portion size is so ample.
Verdict: I really like eating at Royal Snacks, even if we have to usually do that in the car, like most other families that park themselves in their cars in front of the eatery to dine there at night. Royal Snacks has a sitting area for families on the upper floor, and a more cramped one on the ground floor. The service done by waiters to the diners seated outside in their cars is quick and efficient.
Please note: The prices may have fluctuated, re-confirm on that.
