Had a great meal with friends. The portions were huge! Waitress was delightful with one of the most genuine smiles I’ve ever seen. Well recommended.

We visit Royal India late night, after the WOW show in our hotel. It was very clean, quiet and well decorated. The service was good, but the food was excellent; just wish there was a bit more food for the money. We will come back for sure (we understand there is a really nice lunch buffet).

the restaurant was empty when we arrived but the usher was reluctant to seat us in a 4 person booth. YThe service was very slow and we ordered two plates kebobs and goat biryani which was very disappinting. The goat meat was dry and very big bones which were not appropriate for a biryani. I called the Manager a few times but was not available . I was not sure why? Overall the foid was sufficient in quantity but mediocre in taste. The food at Gaylord and service was definitely more upscale than the current establishment.

Venue was great! We really enjoyed the gorgeous decor - including the chandeliers, sofa chairs and the fancy walls. Would recommend going there just to enjoy Indian food in a upscale, fancy destination.

Food - great. Ordered matar paneer, bhaigan, and naans. We love crispy naans, and they made them like we wanted to. Food was slightly salty, but still better than we would've expected in Vegas!

Only negative was that the restaurant was out of coke when they opened, and we had to keep on waiting for the kitchen to replace the food in the Buffet

This is a wonderful Indian restaurant. Lovely decor, delicious food, great service. Our party (we were three) thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. Our only disappointment was the mixed salad we ordered. It was basic, generic, frankly boring. We were surprised because everything else we ordered was creatively and thoughtfully prepared and presented

I took an important business colleague from India here for dinner as he's a vegetarian with limited cuilinary choices. He quite enjoyed the food, it was authentic Indian to him and went over well. Tasted great with the right amount of heat for each of our preferences. Service was prompt, got seated right away, definitely made life easier with hosting business guests from Bangalore and would probably do the same for similar Asian or Middle Eastern guests. Solid choice..

Great basic Indian food. Service was really poor this time we went. Servers were chastising bussers for not doing their job as we were eating.
Food though was great. Everything was fresh and tasty. If you're looking for big portions, find a buffet. Here they give you fair portions, but boy are they tasty!

We booked this place for 10.00pm to coincide with the ending of a show. The decor was beautiful and the food was excellent (although far too much) the only problem was that we were the only couple there which made us a bit uncomfortable. I don't know why it wasn't busy as everything was superb, maybe we were just a bit late. But I am still happy to give top marks and wood definitely go again.

Great Indian food before going to see a show at the Rio. Would recommend this to anyone going across to Rio but if not, it's out of the way and off the strip so I wouldn't come across just for the meal.
Large portions and excellent flavour. All 4 in our party enjoyed everything, including some lovely cocktails

To be fair, it looked good when it was empty with the tables set for dinner. Everything else was dreadful from the total lack of knowledge and skill of the waiter, to the food which was less than marginal, to our wine not coming until we were finished with a ho-hum salad...drink was our only salvation!! Then arrived the lamb kabobs which were truly terrible and unappetizing in the extreme! What happened to beautifully cut cubes of lamb filet threaded alternated with lemon wedges and seasoned with great Indian spices and mint?! Oh no. Grainy ground ... lamb? ... shaped as little footballs presented plain on the plate. I would never go again!

Overall very good food and service. Their signature drinks were not great, but their samosas and generous portions made up for it. It was a bit strange to have to order rice a la carte, but we did fine with their yummy garlic naan.

My meat was cold and hard,no flavor. It seems like they served it ones and I got it on second turn. At the best it was over cooked and very dry. My wife's sea food was very dry. The was nearly empty, but the waiter no where to be found.

Really authentic Indian food with various north Indian Dishes. i really liked the chicken tikka masala and the samosa Chat. a very clean place and the staff is also very courteous. We went to dinner and i liked their various beers and wine list. I will certainly go back there next time i am in Las Vegas.

Happy with our dinner here. Our reservation was noted and we were seated right away. Menu was predictable, with plenty of vegetarian options if that's what you're looking for, and our food was well prepared. Service was timely, and attentive. We especially liked the tandoori prawns. Our initial reaction was that the menu was overpriced but - hey! this is Las Vegas and everything is overpriced.

We visited this restaurant looking for a Chicken Tikka Masala which tastes like one you would get in England. Although it didn't taste like that, the onion bhajis and garlic naan bread was delicious! These two items were reasonably priced, but unfortunately the chicken tikka masala was outrageously over priced at $23.
The food was pretty good, but it was far too expensive for what it's worth.
