I made resevation on ooen table one day before for our anniversary dinner
When we arrived they had no information as they were " off line"
It was great to see that all of their indoor tables were full and the outdoor tables were half full. The service and food are always fabulous with Ali in charge.
Wonderful place for Mother’s Day. I do dad find it odd that they charged for rice and naan
The service was great as usual, but the food fell short of what we were used to before the pandemic. The magical blend of spices was not there, and this is what set their food apart from all the rest of Indian food restaurants. We will try it one more time to see if this continues to be a disappointment.
I have never had such bland Indian food. We were a party at four and not one of us cared for the food food because it was so bland. When we ordered our entrees iafter having sampled the appetizers we requested to please increase the spices.
What we got we’re bland entrées with a little bowl of chopped red peppers and oil. Really?
We also found the service to be lacking
Perhaps it was just an off night, but there are far better Indian restaurants in orange county and we won’t be coming back.
Wonderful attentive service, delicious sauce on the Malabar salmon! My husband really liked his Tikka Masala & the Naan bread & basmati rice are so good!!!
The Indian cuisine at the Royal Khyber is unsurpassed in my personal experience and they adjust carefully to each diner's ability to handle and enjoy spicy food. Service is attentive and unintrusive.
Love, 💕 love love going here! And taking business acquantices, friends, & family as well!
This was my first time at the restaurant. We benefited greatly from the input of our server. The food was excellent. I'll be back.
Great restaurant tucked away in the Village by South Coast Plaza.
Everything we ate was delicious. The service was just as good. Every suggestion was perfect and we enjoyed dishes we had never tried before. It was elegant, and quiet, yet very comfortable for our family with a 6 year old. They have a great variety of gluten free options and a lovely wine list. They also have great cocktails but we didn't know at first because they are on a seperate menu. Probably just during covid paper menu times.
We look forward to our next visit!
Their Lamb Shank is great, tender and juicy. The Lamb vindaloo was also great. I had the very spicy and it was VERY SPICY! I loved it that way. The eggplant appetizer was the star of the show! This is a great place for vegetarians.
Great like always! Ali and Norma provided excellent service, the food was delicious as always, and the music was magnificent!
Always our go to restaurant! Cheers!
And LUCKY we got a reservation on V-day! Yeah!
Amazing food and service. I look forward to visiting again.
The most delicious Indian cuisine ever! Must try the coconut basil chicken!
Nice place to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Great food selection.
Wonderful flavors, great service, quiet surroundings.
The ACTUAL address for this place is 3800 S Plaza Dr Suite 53, Santa Ana, CA 92704 not what Opentable says.
Food and service was great; of course, due to COVID not many people out however, food quality was tasty and a bit better than the standard Indian fare found at the "buffet tables". The lentil soup was very tasty as was the samosa.
Had the appetizer plate, butter chicken, with side of naan and basmati rice. All said, would return.
Been there since 25 years & so consistent with their food & service! FAB! Especially Aliji!
Does not live up to location and pricing for me. Bold, intense Indian spices and flavors missing for me. However this restaurant has been consistent for many years in its quality that’s suits a specific palate for non-Indian patrons.
Really enjoyed the restaurant it was the first time having Indian food and the waiter patiently and thoughtfully walked us through all the options we decided on a chicken dish and a lamb dish and they were delicious like the rice and bread you mix it with was looking for something different and this place definitely fit the bill and very reasonably priced like we had dinner couple of drinks about $90 I will definitely be revisiting this restaurant
Excellent service excellent food
Best in town service is amazing
The name board can be relocated or put up higher since we went round more than once trying to locate the building
The patio is very nice, the food is amazing and the owner who was serving us was friendly polite and very helpful!
We will be returning
What can I say. They knocked it out of the park. I took my Girlfriend here for her birthday and had a great experience. The food was great. The service and friendliness of the staff was fantastic. And lastly the outdoor seating was great. There is not much more you can ask for.
In my opinion this restaurant is very underrated. Hopefully they keep up the great work.
Simply amazing! The food is delicious the staff is professional and friendly and the overall experience is definitely recommended! One of the best Indian food place in the whole South California.
Excellent Indian food and wonderful attentive staff. And right next door to the best Italian restaurant in OC, Antonello.
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!
Food was flavorless and spices were not there either. Service was horrible. Overall looked decent to sit and enjoy the ambience with outdoor patio.
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.
