“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I've been driving past this place and thinking about trying it out ever since it changed to Royal India from Ezells Chicken as it was previously. Finally got around to it last night and was frankly blown away! Chicken Jalfrezi was one of the best I've ever had and the spinach Naan was super fresh and delicious. Butter chicken was also fantastic. Portions are very good, and we were offered extra rice to mop up our sauce. Food came out fast and service was just the right level of attentive without intrusive. Royal India has become my new favorite Indian Restaurant!

“Great remodel of a former fast food place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

It is nice when people come into an old fast food space and create a real restaurant. This place is nicely appointed, and the food is really delicious. We tried new things that the server recommended and were quite happy with the dishes. We'll go again.

“Well prepared flavorful food in a comfortable neighborhood atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

First visit was march 2013. We often share an entree but wanted to try several items so ordered three small items instead. Mulligatawny soup was delicious. Samosas were large, flaky and packed full of filling. Nice sauces provided. My fab was the smoky eggplant based babaganoush which is the best I've ever eaten. Next visit was a shared plate of Kashmiri curry - sweet apple flavor w a small kick. Very nice rice We ordered a potato unleavened bread, pakora maybe, on the side. Very good too.
