Let me start by saying this was some of the best food we had all eaten in India. I pride myself on being a foodie and I am adventurous and can also cook. I like flavour, freshness imagination and presentation. Canton Royale certainly provides all of this in buckets. Not to mention the volume of delicious food it never stopped... More

Very reasonably priced place with a good atmosphere and very reasonable prices. Tried two chicken dishes, two lentils and two naan, and all were exceptional.

Read great reviews and hence decided to try this place out even though we were quite full. And, it was a good decision. The food was really good. And even though the restaurant was packed, the service exceptionally quick.

I'm just finishing my stay at the Hotel Surya, and I think this restaurant, along with the aarna spa, are the real jewels in its crown. I'm traveling solo, which presents a couple of issues - it can be less comfortable, and it can make choosing your food very difficult, as there are no other people's dishes to try -... More

We were staying at the Hotel Rivatas, just around the corner, and tried the restaurant here at the Hotel Surya which had been strongly recommended to us. Although the indoor dining room was full, the staff quickly accommodated us outside in the pleasant courtyard. We had an excellent meal, with a delicious yoghurt/coriander/lime/chilli sauce (chutney), chicken korma, biriyani, plus a... More

Good quality masalas at a very reasonable prices. Some improvements should be made (the plastic, old style, wormed menus may be replaced, for example). But service is pleasant and for the price of a McDonald meal in Europe, you have a full fantastic indian feast!

Amazing building and grounds, lovely old restaurant. Top food Would love to have been able to eat out It was halloween and staff made up with incredibly detailed face paintings and free magician going round the tables. Pool looked great too Set back off the road so I imagine a quieter night's sleep than neighbouring hotels in front of it.

I am a regular so I have good things to say about Canton Royale. It can be taken as a fine dining experience, but it can be equally made into a day for casual dining to indulge with friends. It's a regal setting but in an atmosphere of openness and cozy comfort. The breakfast buffet is commendable and the regular... More

I didn't realise the restaurant was part of the famous hotel Surya, so when we arrived we were terrified we would be hit with an expensive meal. Well... We stuck to vegetarian and it was very reasonable indeed at 190rs per dish, plus other bits. The food here is absolutely amazing. Easily the best Indian food I have had in... More
