Very expensive, portion size was small, naan was so crispy that it was more like papad instead of bread. Other items was ok too, no taste. Will never go to this restaurant again.
Great food And quick service but was a little on the expensive side.
The Outdoor seating needs to be improved - they had cheap hard metal chairs with no cushions ... don’t think adding cushions onto each chair would cost much.
Would definitely go again
Very delicious food, flavourful and authentic. Portions are little small.
Royal Khyber always offers great service and excellent food. Sitting outside under the lights and next to the fountain made the evening even better.
This restaurant has amazing food and amazing people!
Great time & the outdoor courtyard seating was beautiful.
Ali cooked a fish dish off the menu for my stepmom. Salmon with a little bit of a curry. It’s so sad to see business so slow for everyone in the restaurant business. Support your local restaurants or than may not be here once this pandemic is over
WOULD HAVE PROBALY GIVEN ALL 5'S EXCEPT WE HAD TO USE PATIO DINING BECPUSE OF COVID.
The outdoor setting was nice and the service was terrific. The food was good, but not great. I thought it was a bit expensive for the amount and quality.
Very good and tasty Indian food, inner courtyard shared with the Italian restaurant next door with a small fountain which is a great setting, very friendly service.
Wonderful experience beginning to end. Haven’t been here for a long time so was a little worried about eating outside. Actually we liked better than inside. The food was even better than I remember. 5stars!
Very nice to dine outdoors in a quiet environment. Great food and great service. We all enjoyed the evening and shall be back
food was excellent, but we were the only one at 5:30pm and the food wasn't served till 6pm. It was good but a little over priced in comparison with other Indian food.
The food and service were excellent. Really nice atmosphere on the outside patio. All of the safety protocols were followed and the staff is very friendly. I would highly recommend Royal Khyber!
Loved eating outside for 1st time at Royal Kyber. We've been going to this restaurant since they were at their original location (with the big white tent inside). Hope they can keep serving outside after the Covid scare because we sure like it better. There is not one bad thing I can say about this restaurant (except they need more garlic on their "garlic" Naan...which is still great). Glad to see they have hung in with all the closures of some great dining locations. They are an outstanding restaurant.
Couldn’t be happier with my decision to make reservations to dine outdoors on their patio during pandemic . The food is great and the service is impeccable . Will be returning !
Extremely good Indian food! The service was impeccable and the outdoor dining wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant for their mango Lassis, naan and my favorite their onion bahjis.
We were fortunate that there was a power outage in the local neighborhood right before we arrived so there weren't many people still dining in the patio; we almost had the place to ourselves. The staff brought out candles and they were still serving a portion of the menu. We had great tasting food and had cocktails by candlelight and it was a wonderful experience.
Excellent food and excellent Service. Very clean and all the staff were well protected wearing gloves and mask and took good care of all the safety issues.
We are regulars and missed not being able to go there. It was good to get back and experience the same standard that we enjoyed at Khyber.
Very very quiet tonight, actually we were the only people having dinner there until about 7 PM and a few other people walked in. Maybe because of the conditions in the world today. But beautiful service by Ali, As always great to see him. Love the pistachio ice cream
Ali is wonderful. It is our favorite Indian restaurant in the OC
The food has always been excellent at Royal Khyber, but, last night it was superb! Everything was delicious. I had the best sag aloo I have ever had. Every meat/fish in the royal feast was prepared perfectly.
Atmosphere and service were excellent, as well.
Royal Khyber has always been great for us! The food is consistently great!
We were one of then first customers to arrive. We were dining early before a play and it was our first time here. Hubby started with lentil soup and I had tomato soup and both were delicious and extra spicy per our request.
We shared Baingan Bharta eggplant and Aloo Ghobi cauliflower and potatoes and both dishes were generous in portion size and prepared extra spicy to our liking and request. We also had the garlic naan and rice.
We shared a bottle of Wine and thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
The decor is very nice, the restaurant is very well decorated without being gaudy and it’s very clean as well.
We used the restrooms on the way out and everything was very clean. The wait staff was friendly, attentive and we will definitely return!!
Everything was fantastic. The food is exceptional. And, the highest quality service. The price was extremely reasonable.
Food was excellent. Service somewhat slow but I think due to kitchen preparation time. Waiter was attentive. Ambiance and noise level both acceptable. Bill was higher than expected, partly due to drinks pricing
This is the 5th time I have come here to celebrate my birthday! A very dear friend of mine took me here last Friday to celebrate, and we had such a nice time. From the food and atmosphere, to the service, to the owner and the people who work here, it is AAA+++ all the way. We both had the butter chicken and the lamb samosas. DELICIOUS! They even brought me a small desert for my birthday. Thank you all so much, ROYAL KHYBER! BEST Indian restaurant in Orange County.
We had a business lunch for 8 and the food was outstanding! The assorted kebabs platter was a good recommendation along with the assorted vegetarian appetizers. The Khyber's Nectar was amazing! The lamb fell of the bone and was so tender and the sauce was so flavorful (I had requested it mild) that I kept dipping my naan into the bowl until it was wiped clean.
I have been going to Royal Khyber for 20 years. I went there yesterday and was hugely disappointed. They have reduced the amount food served in a portion by over 60%. The prices have gone up - which is fine, but to reduce portions to the point where you have to order twice the amount of food to get a decent meal is ridiculous. I hope management reads this post and take corrective actions. This sentiment is being expressed by several other friends who used to frequent the restaurant
Great service great food.
Great food, excellent service even though the restaurant was quite busy. Recommendations were spot-on. Very enjoyable dinner with wine.
My favorite restaurant. Always a wonderful experience .
Great food and service. My favorite Indian restaurant in Orange County
Always a pleasure to have Ali take care if you.
This place has the best Indian food in Orange County. Never disappoints!
Highly recommend this place. It was delicious. First time here and we don't like things too spicy so server helped us with many questions and steered us in the right direction. Got the chicken with mustard seed ape, butter naan, a chicken with curry dish and a sea bass (under appetizers but around $36 and def what I'd consider an entrée portion). We loved each dish. Service was great and everyone was very nice. Would definitely go back here!
Great service & delicious food!!
Royal Khyber's food never disappoints. Their Sunday brunch, dinner and Saturday street foods choices are all wonderful. Their butter chicken is the best I've found! Service is attentive, venue is attractive. Definitely a must-do.
Royal Khyber is our favorite restaurant in Santa Ana. We are always warmly greeted by the host, who remembers us from our last visit. The service is always impeccable. The food is always outstanding! Most highly recommend Royal Khyber!
