New spot for Indian cuisine

Royal Oak has a new Indian restaurant located on Main Street in the former location of Bean & Leaf Coffee. Samuel Islam, owner of Royal Oak Masala, has served authentic Indian cuisine for over 26 years and is also the former owner of Main Street Kitchen in Clawson. On Royal Oak Masala’s extensive menu, diners will find classic Indian favorites featuring chicken, fish and lamb as well as different varieties of biryani, tandoori, Indo-Chinese and vegetarian dishes.  Popular entrees include lamb biryani with tender pieces of lamb cooked with basmati rice, yogurt, spices, herbs and flavored with saffron, which is gluten free; tandoori mix grill which is tandoori chicken, chicken shish kabab, lamb shish kabab, chicken tikka, shrimp-gluten free; and the chef mix platter with samosa, mix vegetable pakora, onion pakora, chicken tikka and chicken shish kabab, served with green sauce.  Islam claims that Royal Oak Masala is very focused on accommodating food allergies. “I am certified and have been specially trained in food allergies. All items on the menu can be customized to gluten-free, vegan or vegetarian,” he said.  The restaurant’s name “Masala” comes from the dried spice of curry and, appropriately, the walls of this simple and clean space are painted in a curry tone with ample seating for 60 guests. 106 S. Main Street, Royal Oak
