My husband and I were in town during our wedding anniversary, helping to move our daughter from the university and so we all decided to celebrate at the Royal Indian Restaurant one evening. I hadn't experienced dining out on Indian Cuisine in a while and it turned out to be a very good choice given the restaurant we were fortunate... More

I stopped by this restaurant simply out of convience. To my suprise, it turned into one of the best dining experiences I've ever had in myn 47 years on this planet. When you come into the parking lot, the front of the building holds nothing special to behold. However when you walk in, the decor and atmosphere give you the... More

love all their different tandoori dishes, and how you can adjust the spice levels to your liking. Very moderately priced, casual but nice atmosphere, decent service - very much a local go to restaurant.

I am an Indian and occasionally crave Indian food (obviously!). Hence my husband and I decided to dine here last week. We first looked into their website which mentioned 'Thali' which is the Indian platter with multiple dishes, naan, rise and dessert to end with. Upon reaching there, we both ordered Gobi Manchurian (Cauliflower which is dipped in a corn... More

The food might be better than 3 stars. Service was definitely 4 star and above. We ordered lamb Qorma and Saag (spinach), Mango Lassi, Naan and Poori. Overall it was good but my favorite lamb dish turned out to be a disappointment. I am not even sure if it was lamb as it tasted more like goat meat. What was... More

Half of the food came undercooked. It is unusual for C'ville to leave a restaurant being hungry, but that was the case here. I believe the waiter could have done something to remedy the situation :( On top of that, after asking for a check we got something like 'I will clean first, then the check' (sorry, hard to reproduce...

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
