We came off the island to the Gaslamp Quarter and headed here for their lunch buffet. The service was very friendly and attentive. All of the food was delicious, although to us a little less spicy and flavorful than we expect for Indian. Prices moderate.

It was a busy Friday night in the Gaslamp Quarter but entering this restaurant -- Royal India, our first visit -- we felt like we had stepped into an excellent eatery. Starched tablecloths and napkins, excellent service. The food was outstanding. Since we're from Minnesota,...More

Here at conference. Always look for good Indian when I travel. Not cheap, $15 but don't mind if it's good. Not much selection. One of the smaller ones I've seen. First thing that I noted was absolutely no spice in any dish. I mean this...More

Visited here on Saturday, 28 July 2018, at about 12:20pm for the lunch buffet. I first tried to have dinner here the previous evening, but arrived too late (after 10pm closing). The buffet was quite good. It had Chicken Tikka, Chicken Tandori, Basmati rice, and...More

Good food and service. The breads are well made and the rice is actually Basmati. Good selection of Indian beers. Just a suggestion- change to the hot green peeper rather than the sliced jalapenos served as condiments. Overall worth a visit .

The food taste was ok. Service was poor. Even though the restaurant was more than half empty, it was hard to find any server. The server assigned to our table was always missing and started arguing rudely when we pointed the same to him. There...More
