Our intro to Indian dining

We had our 1st ever Indian food at the Royal Taste of India and were very pleased. Our waitress helped us with our selections and made sure the level of spiciness was to our satisfaction. We enjoyed the food very much and look forward to a return visit.

We ordered a takeout and the person on the phone said it would come in an hour, which it did. The food arrived hot and great value for money (great portions). Despite reading a previous review from the UK saying something about the curry being bland is totally wrong, it was so tasty and we couldn't fault it. We are... More

Located in Market Square, this is in a central location on the second floor so might be overlooked if strolling through the village. Every time I have eaten here, take out or sit in, the food has been excellent. A great selection of dishes offered at different heat levels and tasty flavours. The decor is pleasant if a little outdated,... More

After reading the last two reviews, I was slightly hesitant before trying this place out. As it turned out, it was better than I had thought. The decor was nice and the food was pretty tasty and you can request your level of spiciness. The chicken Tikka and the aloo gobi are probably the best dishes. Service is not bad... More

After about 90 minutes waiting for our food we left. Just the worst service I have ever experienced from a restaurant. We were given warm plates (implying food was coming) after about an hour but these were stone cold by the time we left. All we were told was that there was a lot of demand from takeout and delivery.... More

I have to admit that my first exposure to Indian Food was not until a year ago while in Vancouver. Well after going back to Vancouver and trying two Indian restaurants we decided to give this place a try. It was as good as any other Indian food we have tried and in some ways it was better.

Have eaten here several times last Summer ,Winter and again this Summer with the family and have had great food at a reasonable price for Whistler. The staff are polite, helpful with the menus and attentive. Haven't felt rushed on the occasions we have visited.

The place offers traditional and authentic dishes, outstanding Naan bread and daal as well as Canadian favorites like Chicken Tikka Masaka or Butter Chicken. Choose your level of spiciness or get a Mango Lassi, Taj Mahal or Kingfisher Beer to reduce the heat! Definitely the most authentic Indian restaurant in town!

I have gone to The Royal Taste of India twice and both times it exceeded my expectations. Both times the food was presented professionally and had the taste of 5 star restaurant. The staff was professional and understanding of my needs and desires. Once you eat a meal at this amazing restaurant you will keep coming back for more!
