Royal India Express is one of my favourite Indian Food restaurant. The food is very good and authentic in taste. The people working their are very polite and jolly. And the best part is its location in UTC. You shop around and when you are hungry, delicious food is waiting for you ;)

Food was good, I enjoyed the Chicken Tikka Masala, the Naan was nothing special, and the Mango Lassi was ok.
