You can order just about every traditional Indian dish here and be assured that it will be good. The Garlic nan has bits of garlic embeded in the bread and the dipping sauce is just right. I love their Spinach dish with potatoes, but most Indian dishes here are great and can be ordered in any degree of heat. Take... More

I've been to Royal India about 4 times. I live in Tucson, so I make it a point, when in Milwaukee to come here for lunch. Great buffet. Fresh and excellent food. My boyfriend who is a chef, agreed it was the best Indian food he has ever had too! He said the Goat Curry was worth the price of... More

Reliably good Indian food. We have dined in and carried out, both with good results. I especially like the coconut soup and the malai kafta. Big thumbs up.

We've eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the food. Recently they installed a buffet and this has increased their business and made the food lower in cost without lowering the quality. I love the mango lassi drink and the mango ice cream.

An unassuming storefront masks an excellent Indian restaurant. The staff was welcoming, and quick with our order. Portions are large, I had the coconut soup which was divine, almost like eating dessert first, followed by Allo Gohbi, spiced just right and served with fragrant rice. My husband had their mixed Tandoori grill and especially enjoyed the shrimp and chicken. Their... More

Because of a bad google link, we thought we were headed for a South Indian buffet (that would be Royal India in Sydney, Australia, however). Our disappointment at the lack of dosas subsided quickly once we tasted the delicious buffet foods here. Compared to the better-known Indian restaurants in Milwaukee, the buffet is smaller - but the emphasis is clearly... More

I tried the lunch buffet at Royal India, and I still can't believe how bad it was. Basically, you get to pick from tasteless vegetarian slop, or tasteless slop that if you look real hard, you might find a couple of pieces of overcooked meat. The only exception was the Tandoori Chicken, which wasn't in a sauce, but if you... More

This was our first visit to Royal India Restaurant even though it's been in the neighborhood for several years. I wish we had tried them out before. We went in recently for a late lunch and was surprised to see that they had a Indian Buffet that lasted until 3:00. To get a sampling of their fare we tried the... More
