The food was extremely expensive, but we went ahead in search for a good food. However, we could hardly find anything worth eating! All the curries seemed either packed food or stale! The breads were not properly baked, and had wet floor inside. We asked to get baked breads, they baked our pieces of breads and got them back!

A convention group decided to explore away from the meetings and we chose Royal India.
Very authentic menu and we were treated to some wonderful offerings which we shared .
Some people were new to Indian food, some were veterans . All enjoyed and would be happy to enjoy here again.
Atmosphere great, staff very well turned out and attentive. Very clean and classy establishment.
A repeat very possible before we leave.

Pros: - Good decoration
- Staff is friendly
- Location is good

Cons: - The food sucks
- We ordered three curries and all three of them very watery
- The food did not taste good and the quantity of food was very less compared to the price
of the dishes
- Staff was friendly but way too slow, it took them 15 minutes to find us a spot to seat
- the time when we went the restaurant was half empty than also they had hard time finding
a table for 6 people.
- Please read you bill thoroughly because they tend to charge more than what you have
purchased.

Overall, the food sucked and did not compile with authenticity of the food. Very slow service and food price is way to high for the quality of food served.

I went to this place several years ago for a dinner with visiting Indian colleagues, and it was good. This year, visited again and it was still good food and service. Not cheap, but all of the food was well spiced and service was attentive and pleasant. Had all of the standards, butter chicken, bharta etc. All fine. My colleagued ordered a chili chicken dish as a starter and he liked it a lot. No problem with this place.

The food and service was very nice. Table cloths and cloth napkins make for a nice dining experience. Menu is from northern India so good masala.
