Royal Khyber is a Fine Indian Cuisine Restaurant, located in South Coast Plaza Village (across from Nordstrom).
I have been a huge fan since they were over off Jamboree over 25 years. The food and the warm, friendly make it a favorite place to go!!
The food is always good and consistent. Waiters are attentive but not intrusive. Always a great experience!
If you've not had Indian food that loudly rang your bell, you need to visit Royal Khyber to experience the real deal. Excuisitely prepared, perfectly enhanced with appropriate and authentic spices, this will likely make you understand just how exotic and delicious the Indian cuisine should be. We've enjoyed their excellence over thirty years, and in 3 locations, and never been disappointed with any of the dishes we've ordered. Staff is always attentive, informative and gracious, and we'll be back for more great dining. You need to add this to your "must-visit" list, trust me. Thank you Royal Khyber!
My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant on several occasions and have found it to be the best Indian food place around. I would recommend this restaurant to those who really like good quality Indian food. The kofka vegetable balls are outstanding as well as the lamb shank.
Royal Khyber continues to please us every time I go to dinner there.
I have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years. It is far and away the best Indian cuisine in Southern California. The restaurant atmosphere is very cozy and comfortable and the staff is always very cordial and attentive to all of its customers.
If you want the best of curry and spice and "everything nice", then I recommend anyone to treat themselves to a visit to Royal Khyber.
Nice low light place. Great food and ambiance
This is a great place to a lunch, dinner and especially Sunday brunch. The food is fantastic and the service is marvelous.
Enjoyed Royal Khyber a lot. We started with eggplant fritters (actually fried thin slices). Had spinach with paneer, lamb curry and basil coconut chicken. All were tasty. Good service as well
Our favorite spot in OC for delicious Indian food with great food and service that is second to none. Love this place and people who work there. Very festive time of year with all the pretty decorations. Great job RK.
My family and I came here for Sunday Brunch. The food was amazing but the customer service is exceptional.
Wonderful food and service as always. Royal Khyber never disappoints.
Such good food. Always. I took a group of mostly 80+ year olds who had little knowledge of Indian food. I did the ordering, having been to RK many times. My friends all raved. Great dinner and evening.
We had a very positive experience at Royal Khyber and would recommend the restaurant for high quality indian cuisine. Sunil, our waiter was exceptional and made the experience really worthwhile as we were celebrating my mom's good health and life of 85 years. The menu was extensive and some items were creative. We were worried as we had driven up from San Diego for this restaurant as San Diego is pits for quality Indian restaurants.
The service is impeccable. Food is amazing and the drink choices are great.
Always outstanding food and service! Large buffet selection of delicious offerings.
Excellent tasting, the lunch entrée is a little small.
We love Royal Khyber but they have changed the Goan Prawn and need to change it back to the original way. The new way is not anywhere near as good.
My only issue with the Saturday lunch was that all in my party had leftovers of their main course and they don’t permit you to bring that home. While I see some patrons could possibly abuse this courtesy I hope most wouldn’t. It was just difficult for me to think of all that food being just thrown away especially in present times. I will probably just not order the main course as the appetizers were delicious and plentiful.
Chicken Madras made to perfection. This is the only Indian restaurant I've been to where the chef truly knows how to cook this delicacy. On top of that Ali made this a fun night as he always does. Thank you RK.
I love this restaurant. I have followed them for over thirty years. The quality is never compromised. I always feel welcome and comfortable there.
As always we had a fantastic time. Ali was as wonderful as always and our 4 new guests raves about everything.
Go and have a fantastic night out - you won’t regret it.
Always a pleasure to dine here. Followed our waiter's recommendations and very pleased.
I am never disappointed visiting the Royal Khyber. The food is always outstanding and the service top-notch. I love their vegetarian dishes and their main courses are always flavorful and well done.
Ambience nice . Food tasty . Service above normal . Portions a bit small for price.
Royal Khyber has been my favorite for years and always will be. Ali, and the gang really do care about your dining experience. If any dish is not the way you like it they will gladly request another from the Chef. Truly a welcoming and friendly place to eat along with some of the best Chicken Madras in maybe the whole So Cal.
We had a lovely evening at Royal Khyber.
Very attentive staff, my favorite Indian restaurant in OC!
We went to Royal Kuyber today at 12:30 p.m. We were turned away due to my being accompanied by my Licensed Service Dog. The Federal Government clearly states that a Licensed Service Dog may accompany it's owner anywhere I go. We explained this to a Mr. Ali and he refused to allow us to be in restaurant. I am reporting the Royal Kuyber to the Federal Government and they will take the legal steps necessary to penalize this disobedience of the Federal Law.
Fabulous restaurant, good spicy food and great service. Best Indian food in OC! Bar none.
Very nice place to try experience Indian food. I tried the goat dish , and found it outstanding.
I was on a business trip, and by myself, and couldn't help but over-hear that some did not know what they were ordering. The menu could be a little more descriptive in these cases, and even to those that know the food, would help to sell the items. .
What a great night! Fantastic food, superb service, beautiful setting... A new favorite spot!
Really enjoyed the lamb Rohan Josh Kashmiri and the chicken Punjabi dish. Fantastic garlic naan and pistachio kulfi. Nice ambience and good service. They have a lunch buffet every Friday and Sunday which I would love to try.
Awesome mother's day brunch
As always wonderful.. Great service and great food..
Ali is the best! He is always so helpful. The food here is amazing.
Repeat good dining experience. Good service. One diner got GI problems right after dinner but nothing serious.
We have enjoyed dinner at the Royal Kyber approximately twice a year for the past five years. The quality of the food and professionalism of the servers has been consistently excellent. The menu is reasonable extensive. The Royal Kyber in our opinion is among the best Indian restaurants in Orange County is highly recommended.
We were blown away by the quality of the food at Royal Khyber, but daunted by the very slow service, although a number of waiters were sharing duties and the place was not overcrowded. We had to miss our film because the food just didn't arrive in time. We had allowed 1 1/2 hours for our meal.
So yes -- treat yourself to interesting food on an Indian theme, but be prepared to enjoy it in a LEISURELY manner.
This restaurant must be the top place for Indian food in the area, and the service and ambiance are also excellent. There are of course less expensive places for this cuisine, but for a special occasion I would certainly recommend this one.
