“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Its one of the more centrally located restaurants in the city which serves some delicious chat than their food served inside the restaurant. Overall good food.

“Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Good food at reasonable prices. We had sizzler which was very tasty. Dhal thadka and zeera rice tasted normal. I found dhal not so tasty when compared to my last year’s visit.

“Ok place to eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Seating arrangement is nice though not very sophisticated. All in rows pone after the another. Parking space available for around 15 odd cars and a lot of 2 wheelers. As for food, fish was not good somehow. Chicken was good.
Service is ok though a bit slow. Location is right in the middle of the city with good connectivity by public transport.

“Good place with Bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

I've been to Lucknow and Royal Cafe a couple of times, in the recent years.

Considering others, The food here used to be very good but that said, i don't much much drop-down in their quality/taste. There's one thing I'd notice though - the service has gone much bad to what it used to be. And i think it's because they've dominated in the city and know that they used to be the best restaraunt in the city for a long time. I may be overspeaking but i see that attitude in their eyes. Com'n, there are ten's of nice restaurants out there so the competition is a little tough - they'll have to admit it and work religiously on their service quality.

The charges are reasonable but again, considering the service and overall quality, it's somehow not worth it.

“Great Food But Poor Service Quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

The food at Royal Cafe is very Good but the poor service quality just destroyed the Pleasure of eating out. The Ambience is good. The waiters are well trained, but lately they have been ill mannered to the extent of being rude; even to the extent of verging towards forcing you to tip exorbitantly even after servingyou poorly. It seems that that lately the management has been not patying attention to the service aspect of their staff which is the very essence of Hospitality industry.
