Royal Khyber - OC
Friendly staffVery friendly. Very attentive to my 2 year old grandson.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNotably improvedI have been to Royal Khyber before... It is always a quiet place to relax with a nice ambiance. I love Indian food and their food was never really spicy enough. I am not sure why but the food was much improved. The Bhindi Masala had a nice char and the Malai Kofta was in a nice nut sauce.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDecent food, dated ambienceFood was ok. I expected it to blow my mind given the prices. Service was quick and friendly. Nice ambience. However, the place is old and needs an uplift.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice...although...As much as we like coming here...the portions are very small. Also, a very small dish of mango chutney if almost $5...way over priced. Other then that...great service and very good food.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNot cheap, but greatThis is restaurant Indian food at its best. I love Indian food and have tried many local restaurants and this one sets the standard (and there is some really good Indian food out there.) The service is beyond courteous as well.
My suggestion for first timers is to avoid the entrees and opt instead for the curries, which can be enjoyed "family style" by all the members of your party. Chicken Korma and Saag Paneer (spinach cooled with home made cheese) are a great starting point and will get you nicely addicted to Indian food.
My only gripe was that we ordered a bottle of wine and it was already open when it got to our table. I could see that it was not full when it got there. Not sure what that was about, but I'm going back anyway.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPersonal serviceWe love the food here, and have been a few times. The owner is always there and you can see the pride he has for his restaurant. The decor might be a little outdated, but still intimate and very nice. The service is always spot-on, they never let our water glasses get empty. And the food is great.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOur second visit. ServiceOur second visit. Service was very attentive.

By far my favorite Indian restaurant.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
