This fairly new restaurant has become very popular in Lexington. Note that it is quite small but it is near the Visitor's Center and the Green. Prices are reasonable and the food is good. I have gone there often for lunch with the 'girls.'

Tucked just off Mass Ave, steps from the Lexington Green, Royal Indian Bistro is a surprisingly authentic restaurant. Portions are good size, and service is courteous and prompt. At lunchtime they offer a wonderful daily sampler that lets you try several sides. Despite its suburban location, this is one of the better Indian restaurants in the greater Boston area.

A short wait for a delicious Goa Prawn Curry an Lamb Rogan Josh. Service was attentive. Naan too. Reasonable price - but "sides" were actually full sized and therefore pricey, Saag (spinach) $12...

After biking for a few hours in the Minuteman Bike path we stumbled into this place 2 minutes away from the trail... What a nice intermezzo!! Food was generous and delicious, the service outstanding. If you are visiting on a weekend go early, when we arrived to the restaurant there was only one other table occupied, by the time we... More

My family has gone there since it opened. It is a family run restaurant and on a busy night, the whole family is working efficiently side by side with the wait staffs; they know what each is supposed to do with a minimum amount of talking to each other. They know a lot of their customers by name. Their food... More

When ever we get a craving for Indian food we go to the Bistro. I wish it was bigger. But the food and service is outstanding.

Amazing food, amazing service! We go nearly every week and have never been disappointed. I've tried pretty much all the veggie dishes and there hasn't been a single thing that wasn't good. Although, IMHO, the vegetable masala is do die for! The service is great, they truly care about their customers and are super friendly to kids!

The food at Royal India Bistro is fresh and delicious. I leave feeling full, but not unwell from too much salt. Spices are perfectly balanced. We eat here often, and it is by far our favorite Indian restaurant in the greater Boston area. Don't miss the garlic Naan! Friendly, simple, delicious... and quiet enough to talk. All this, plus moderate... More

Royal India Bistro is hands down our favorite Indian restaurant. Royal India Bistro is a family-owned, family-run business. Since moving to Lexington from Brookline, we frequent this restaurant at least once a week. Owner Jatinder Singh (with his brother Ravinder) is always friendly with us - he works extremely hard and consistently puts the customer first. His restaurant has a... More
