Nestled within the village of Rettenden Common, just of the main A130 road that leads onto Southend-on-Sea, The Royal Tiger is a real find. This beautiful restaurant is housed in a large white period building that looks more like a country pub from the outside, however on the inside, an elegant restaurant serving a fusion of Thai and Indian cuisine is revealed. The Royal Tiger is hugely popular amongst local diners and people travel from all over Essex to enjoy the fantastic menu on offer. Fans of Thai and Indian food will be more than delighted with the menu at The Royal Tiger, with both cuisines perfectly represented. Along with all of the old favourites from both Thai and Indian cooking, the menu offers up some superb specials to sample, all cooked using the highest quality ingredients by an experienced and skilled kitchen. From the Indian section, the Raj Murghi Stick is a great dish, featuring tandoori baked chicken pieces in a sauce of almonds, coconut, butter, yoghurt and aromatic spices. As for the Thai menu, The Weeping Tiger is a fabulous beef sirloin steak dish cooked over charcoal grills with Thai herbs and a special dip.
