This was our first time here, and again still exploring the various restaurants in our neighborhood. This was a fun way to try some different Indian dishes when all you want is a "small bite". We tried the lunch buffet served from 11:00am to 3:00pm. I would suggest going earlier rather than later. Some of the dishes might have tasted... More

My dinner companion and I had a delicious dinner at the Royal India: Mango Curry and Kashmiri Masala, two orders of lovely, fresh, warm Naan, along with a generous bowl of Basmati. We started out with an appetizer for two, a mixed vegetable platter with samosa and pakoras--excellent. There was enough leftover food to bring home a complete meal for... More

I eat at this restaurant regularly for lunch - their buffet is amazing and delicious and always filling! The fresh hot naan and chai tea is the icing on the cake. The restaurant itself is beautiful despite the ugly exterior, and the waitstaff is friendly and attentive even in the buffet setting. Dinner is no different! Highly recommend this place!!

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.
