Very plain, tasteless food. The service was also quite bad and the price on the expensive side. I would not recommend, try something else! 1/5

Royal India was a pleasant surprise here in Zagreb. We eat Indian food several times a month at home and I craved a little paneer or josh or other dish with those magnificent South Asia spices. We spied Royal India, took a chance, and had...a wonderful, delicious meal. The bhatti murgh-- chicken rubbed with saffron, pomagranete, ginger and more-- was perfect. Palak Paneer burst with spinach flavors and delicate fresh paneer, with a dash of heat, per my request. Dipping sauces for the samosas were light but full-flavored without the cloying sweetness you get in some other places. It was perfect night for outdoor seating, which made the meal and beers even tastier. Many thanks to Royal India for a tasty delightful evening!More

The staff was very polite and pleasant. Food was great, portions were decent and prices were great for the location. Would come again for sure if I craved Indian food. The name truly lives up to what it claims. Authentic Indian food.

I’ve been eating in many Indian restaurants all over the globe, but this was worst ever. So my score of 3 is perhaps still too high ? All dishes are served with bare minimum decoration like 3 onion rings and one stripe of gravy ?...Papadum normally (all over the world) is served with raita, chutney, pickles, mint. Here only the pot of mint sauce. Would like to know those people who scored here 5 and invite them to visit some other Indian resto’s elsewhere and compare.More

We asked for bottle of wine they brought already open bottle. They says they serve like that with previously open cork. Chicken they said their special without bone or boneless you can see in picture. Don't tell them you don't like the food.. they will...ask you to leave ASAP. Owner behavior is too much rude n not expected ever those words for customer. Even after their words we showed humbleness n paid they invoice. Finally they deduct the win bill amt. We asked to add the total amt which we had ordered. Now they don't gives us invoice and says we don't need to pay for all. Owner didn't come to face us. Finally we paid 200 kuna without invoice. Worst hospitality ever found in restuarent at zagreb by so called owner of the restuarent n the staffsMore

Unimpressed. Ordered butter chicken which was essentially tandoor cooked cubes of chicken cooked in tomato sauce. Cheese naan bread was strange - not quite what I was expecting. I eat Indian food often, but this was a disappointment.

I had lamb dish - Gosht Lazeez Khada Masala and my wife had chicken dish - Methi Murg Malai, food was delicious! Cooked and seasoned perfectly. They also have Indian beer - Cobra, which is great :) Desert was unusual but great - Gulab Jamun....So two mains + Naan + rice + 2 beers + desert was in total 236k, I believe a fair price. I also have to mention that the staff was extremely pleasant. I def. recommend this place!More

Walked up and came to the Royal Indian 1st, food was OK, but expensive. Asked for poppadoms and the usual, and got 4 burnt spicy popadoms and some green sauce, which was horrid, not much choice of rice, plain and saffron, so went with rogan...josh and saffron rice, when it came, it was like curry sauce and 8 small pieces of lamb, I thought it was expensive, as was the beer 15kn for a 30cl bottle, we ate drank and paid an left As we walked a bit furthur, we came across the Bombay and checked the menu, not only was it cheeper, and looking at the people's meals, it looked much more meat on there plate, lesson learnt, don't go to the 1st one you seeMore
