I was very pleased with the variety of food on the menu. They had various dish offerings from various areas of India. I got a coconut vegetable dish and honestly I have to say it was one of the best Indian dishes I think I have ever had. I really look forward to going back there sometime. The service was... More

We arrived quite late at about 9pm. The food was OK. For Indian food, we expected more flavour (more herbs and spices) and we found the food to be just OK.

Happy they've moved to a much more pleasant venue. Once they have their new ABC license, I'm sure their weekends will be busier. Sadly, however, they're still serving the same, very mediocre N.Indian food.

The buffet was delicious, the prices were great and the service was impeccable. There was a good variety of meats, rices, vegetables and dessert dishes to choose from.

Honestly, I could eat Indian food every day and not be bored. So when some friends suggested we try out the new location (5/2014, now on Emmett Street between Barrack's Road and the bypass) of Royal Indian to support their reopening, I did not need convincing. However, knowing the food is pitched on the mild side, I upped my request... More

We came here for supper because several colleagues of my husband's had raved about their food so we had to give it a try. It turned out that they'd only been for the lunch buffet. Sadly I did not learn this until too late. The meal began with stale pappadams followed by greasy samosas. We then had a rather sour... More

his was my first time trying Indian food, so I can't compare to other similar restaurants. We decided to try the buffet so we cold sample many different items. Everything tasted and appeared fresh. Be sure to plate up some sauce to dip into we the naan. It will be at your table when you return from the buffet table.... More

We ate dinner there Monday night 5/5/2014. The Food was Delicious, very flavorful, Great selection of items for meat eaters or Vegetarians. We can't wait to go back to try even more items on their Menu. It really smelled wonderful just walking in the door. Very friendly waitress.
