Great Indian food including for Vegans

I went there with two friends who picked non veggie food. As for me, as vegan, I chose Aloo Gobhi which was above expectations. Make sure you do not choose the bland option. I went for the mild one and the taste of that dish was excellent esp with the garlic naan and white rice. I will definitely... read more

Whenever I'm in C'ville I make it a point to enjoy their lunch buffet; large selection of dishes and excellent quality which is fairly uncommon for most buffets. They even have chai as part of the lunch price! The owner is always friendly and seems to remember my family when we stop in. I have not had dinner here, but... More

I showed up a bit early to meet a friend, and we ate...the food at Royal Indian usually has great distinct variety, but there was more variety, and the curries were the best they have ever been. In addition, the hosts graciously permitted me to stay after the meal to write up the notes from my visit with my friend,... More

I tried to call in an order for dinner; after speaking to 3 different people I was told that they don't take orders by phone, only online (that is a new phenomena for me). Since we were visiting, we only had our mobile phones, and the ordering interface wouldn't work! We finally gave up and went to Sultan Kebab.

Along with the normal Indian restaurant staples, they have some unusual recipes that are not typically found. Good food, good environment, good staff.

Went here for try my hand at Indian food. My first experience was horrible (at another restaurant), but Royal Indian was great. The owners are very friendly and food is delicious. I had asked for milk food, and it was served as such. Great spice control.

I have been going to this restaurant for the past couple of years and the food is still as amazing as my first time. The service is what makes the food even better. The staff is very friendly and are very willing to help explain the menu items throughly. The chef and owner Ravi will make a surprise entrance every... More

We have visited here once before but this time we had the buffet. It was very good and a nice mix of various foods. They had both meat and veg. I eat only Veg so what I had was very good along with various salads, fruits, deserts, tea and Mango lassi, etc. It was all very good. Also, the owners... More

We have tried all the Indian restaurants in town and keep coming back to this one. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the Indian restaurants in town , but this is our favorite and ambience is by far the best.
