A word from Rajvilaas
Crystal chandeliers and Burmese teak, plus an enormous painting of a noble 18th-century Indian family, all serve notice that Rajvilaas Fine Indian Cuisine in Piscataway has a serious ambition to "celebrate the best of Indian and British royal heritage." (Cody Kendall, Star Ledger 26th April 2013) />But it is the effectively spiced whole Tandoori Pomfret ($16.95) that clinches the deal, a specialty setting a standard for the other dishes, which happily do not fall short.
The Chicken 65 ($7.95), aka "fiery fried chicken," is an example of a dish that should be taken as is. The recipe for the chicken, conceived in 1965 in Madras, involves generous participation from cayenne pepper, ginger and vinegar. That’s its nature, so don’t go for this one if you like your Indian food to be less assertive. Hint: Order some cooling raita ($3.95) with it for dipping and the yogurt with cucumber will ease the sting.

Diner Reviews
  • "In addition to excellent versions of the usual Northern India items, they have many fine Southen dishes. Try Chicken Chettinad; Tandoori Salmon; Chicken Methi; Chicken Hariyali; and chickpea dishes. BYO. Reasonable prices for good portions. Some staff members are not fluent in English, although they work hard and are very nice. This leads to some service issues. Nice decor; good space between tables."

  • "Me and my wife had been here for dinner on Valentine's day. There were just a couple of employees and they had to take orders and receive people as well. The food was served after 35 mins of waiting which really ruined our night. Also though they claim to serve south Indian food most of them were North Indian based. When we were fed up and asked for the check it never came. I had to walk to the Billing desk and request them. The prices were also high compared to other restaurants around the place. In short, horrible service and pathetic food."

  • "This is a restaurant that wants desperately to be good but too many things went wrong during our meal. First off, the place smells funny, not like food but like cleaning and incense. The server was very pleasant but the wait for the food was too long. One of the dishes was just awful. When I didn't eat it the owner came and apologized saying they hadn't had time to properly marinate the chicken and took it off the bill. That was nice but you can't put on your menu what you aren't prepared to serve properly. I would happily have chosen another dish if I'd been told that one wasn't available. Clearly they want to succeed but they will have to get their timing issues worked out. I might go back but for now I'll stick to Moghul."
