Royal Khyber is a Fine Indian Cuisine Restaurant, located in South Coast Plaza Village (across from Nordstrom).
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.
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!
We love Asha! Food is wonderful, Chilean sea bass and basil coconut chicken dishes are outstanding!
The service is amazing. Very attentive, not pushy, actuate descriptions of the menu items, and they brought birthday dessert! The staff even remembered my friend from a lunch visit!
Delicious food...a calm oasis near shopping and entertainment venues.
Unbelievably delicious food and terrific service. This was our second visit (we had to come back to try more dishes) and it was Sunday before labor day so very quiet. We started our dinner with 2 small plates, one of fried fish which were so light to almost levitate off the plate and the other was a chicken dish called Chicken 65! Amazing flavor!
We shared several more dishes and between our first visit and this one, we can honestly say that everything we ate was spectacular!
Very nice curry and service.
The service, food, ambiance & presentation were excellent! I've been here several times and haven't been disappointed. My friend had the Chicken Tikka Masala, I had the Coconut Basil Chicken. We also ordered rice and garlic naan bread, along with wine for her, a Taj Mahal beer for me. Everything was delicious, and the service was quick. The ambiance was perfect, enjoying our meal while doing some catching-up. We enjoyed our dining experience at Royal Khyber. I'll be back again soon!
Possibly the best Indian food in Orange County. Such amazing flavors! The service is outstanding, and the restaurant is quiet and comfortable. A truly memorable experience!
As always fab food! I have been enjoying the food here for the several years. It’s delicious and consistent. See you next time:)
Great food. Very comfortable restaurant. Nice for conversation.
Wonderful atmosphere and great service. A bit pricey for Indian food, but everything was delicious.
Wonderful service, delicious food! One of our favorite OC restaurants. ♥️
The food was not that great. Quite bland.
Food was disappointing, not as good as we remembered.
I had 2 memorable dinners at Ghandi at that same location in the 80’s. My wife and I decided to try the fine Indian cuisine of Royal Khyber. We were both impressed by the excellent food and service of this restaurant. We strongly recommend it.
Very nice place for a casual business-type lunch. Menu was excellent with plenty of good choices. Service was outstanding. Recommend most highly.
We took my Dad, Aunt, and Uncle and we had a fantastic experience.
They took such great care of us. We will definitely be back!
A dish consisted of seafood and consisted of one item (mussels) was stale. Informed a manager who told us that he was just a host and knew nothing about it. Finally, the waiter approached us to apologize, removed the stale mussels and replaced it with different sauce. We were surprised the restaurant did not replace anew dish. Very poor management.
We don't dine near South Coast Plaza often, but when we do, Royal Khyber is always our unanimous choice. We love the ambiance, food, service, staff, drinks, menu selection and just everything in general. But it is the food that brings us back...always! Just delicious.
Wonderful food and great service!
This is our family spot. Everything is always perfect when we dine here. Service is superb
