Royal India has gone through some phases over the last 2-3 years that I have been eating here. I have seen it go from poor atmosphere, average food, excellent service to fabulous food, fabulous atmosphere, average service to the current poor service, poor food and poor atmosphere. The service and the food of my last visit was very disappointing. They... More

I've eaten a lot, and I mean a lot, of Indian food, and I enjoy all kinds of dishes, so I'm pretty happy when I discover a place that has a lot of really great dishes at a very reasonable cost. Toss in a fabulous buffet, friendly staff, a beautiful place, and I'm even happier, so let me tell you... More

I'm not a big fan of the usual Indian restaurant food. I really like Royal India however. The staff are very nice, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the food is very tasty. They serve a variety of naan delicacies such as potato, chicken, and my personal favorite Kashmiri Naan stuffed with cherries, raisins, fennel, and almonds. You absolutely must try... More

Nice little restaurant, peaceful decor. Staff is not particularly helpful, seemed inexperienced. It was our first time in and we weren't quite sure about the buffet....It was good, but not replenished well, even though it was only a little after 1:00pm. We will go back to just to see if this was a fluke, because the food really was good.

This Indian cuisine restaurant has been in the Juanita neighborhood of Kirkland for almost 20 years now. It is lovely, the manager is very friendly and takes a personal concern that you enjoy your meal. They now do lunch buffet 7 days a week and have live music several nights a week. The area has grown significantly with new apartments... More

We tried the restaurant some 10 years ago and decided it was time to give it another try. We go in, are seated, and then wait nearly 10 minutes for anyone to notice even though the place is not especially busy and 4 waitresses are over by the hostess stand. The restaurant is cavernous with little or no atmosphere --... More

I'm writing this review to put some other reviews in perspective. I have been going to the Royal India for many years, 10 + and a fairly regular basis. I have eaten in high end Indian restaurants in London and in India so I think I have a good perspective. This is not a high end London Indian eatery, however... More

We have been dining at Royal India for several years and it's only getting better. The food used to be good, but now it is excellent! The owner told me that they use fresh ground spices and it really makes a difference. The service is very good and welcoming. They have these wonderful indoor tents that big groups can dine... More
