We were early in the evening having arrived from the east coast, so it was not very busy - good for quiet conversation. The service was very good and the food was excellent. We would go back if the opportunity presents.
The food is really good, far better than the other Indian restaurants we have tried. Definitely not a casual Indian buffet! The lamb shank is always a favorite, cooked 24 hrs and tender as can be. I had the mixed tandoori which was a cornucopia of spicy Indian meats cooked over their own special oven.
We've been there for birthdays and other celebrations and everyone has enjoyed it immensely!
Absolutely fabulous experience with friends and the food was excellent . The ambience and service was outstanding . Sunil the waiter was very helpful, knowledgeable and made some great recommendations . Overall a gem
Wonderful food and service a dinning classic! Great place for a date night!
We've been dining at Royal Kyber for many years. Started when they were on Bristol Street around 20yrs ago with the great "white tent" decor and low prices with high quality. Their prices have gone up, the decor is fancier, but the food is still great, along with the service.
This was our pre-Valentine date and the first time we visited. We were greeted immediately and warmly, taken to our table immediately. The ambience was warm and inviting. The wine list included several of my favorite reds and the menu was extensive, varied and a good range of prices.
I started with the Indian Salad which was good, but similar to Arab Salad, Israeli Salad, Persian Salad, etc. My husband started with the Warm Eggplant Salad...clearly the very best eggplant I’ve ever tasted. I will be a regular, if just to have this salad. Anyone who enjoys eggplant must give this a try! Memorable!
I had the lamb chops and my husband had the Chef’s special lamb shank simmered for 14 hours. The sauce was out of this world — simply divine! My husband’s palate is discriminating and he was extremely satisfied with his choice.
The garlic naan was delicious, as expected, but the piece de resistance was the lychee panna cotta dessert. I have never tasted anything so smooth, tasty and creamy...beautiful to look at and even better to eat.
We will definitely return...frequently!
Wonderful as always
Well this was our second trip in 3 days of course we ordered the Reshmi Chicken Tikka again as I think that has become my favorite at that restaurant this time we ordered the saag paneer and mustard fish. Very good food a very highly recommended restaurant. Love it
We had gone on a short vacation to Newport Beach and we had heard a lot about Royal Khyber from friends and family. We ordered the Reshmi chicken tikka malai kofta and an Ajwaini paratha. Yum it was very delicious dishes and I started planning another visit with our niece who was coming for dinner in a couple of days. This place is very highly recommended try it
We eat all over Orange County and keep coming back to the Kyber. It is simply the best Indian food around. Service always amazing!!
This dinner was our second dining experience with Royal Khyber and we were not disappointed once again. The food is very good, service was perfect and atmosphere was warm and cozy on this New Years Eve night. We think it is the best Indian cuisine anywhere in Orange County, bar none!
Thanks to the chef and the staff at Royal Khyber!
Had a reservation on NYE. Had a flat tire on the way. Called restaurant to let them know. They held table for us! Amazing restaurant. Amazing food. We are never disappointed. The service is great. Best Indian restaurant around!
I have been going to Royal Khyber for years and have never been disappointed! The service is always outstanding and the food is always delicious.
Royal Khyber is our favorite restaurant
Overall was very flavorful. Loved the vindaloo and Panang paneer. My two kids really liked their yogurt drinks. A few of us were sick and didn’t want to be around people so we sat by the entrance door. The restaurant was able to get customers in and out fairly quickly and everyone looked satisfied. One thought though is the evening after we were all home and in bed my wife and youngest daughter were violently ill. Probably the timing and not the food. I ate leftovers and was fine but neither wife nor kid would.
As always the food was delicious but the service was neglectful. This was the first time we were not pleased with our service. Usually very attentive.
Royal Khyber is our favorite Indian restaurant hands down. Its very elegant ambiance with great service from a excellent staff that does care about the food and service. I've been coming here for over 25 years since back in the day when it was called Ghandi. I generally eat the Chicken Madras which is unlike any dish you've ever tried. You can order it mild but be ready, it has a deep rich flavor. Love it here and highly recommend.
Best Indian food I've ever had. It was excellent.
One of the best Indian restaurants in the OC. I commend the attentive wait staff for their service. In addition, the ambiance of this restaurant and the music, transports you back to India. Try the Vegetarian Thalli, Malabar Fish Curry and the Lamb Rogan Josh. Simply exquisite!
