Food was delicious. ..so many authentic choices
I absolutely love this restaurant! We tried it for the first time about a month ago and have gone back every week since! The food is incredibly delicious and rich with flavor . The place is never overly crowded and the atmosphere is spacious and open for large groups to enjoy, but feels intimate enough for a date night or quiet dinner. The service is just enough- no overly pushy waiters hovering around, but you get everything you need in a fairly timely manner.
My boyfriend has tried several of their dishes and loved them all- Biryani with Chicken, Chicken and Spinach, and the Royal Tandoori platter. I get the same thing every time- Shrimp Vindaloo hot! (If you don't like super spicy food, you definitely should stick to the mild...don't push it.) I can't help myself- it is so flavorful and the heat is perfect. We've also tried several of their breads and we usually get their raita to cleanse our palettes- all are very fresh and yummy. This is easily the best Indian food in Raleigh, probably the best Indian food I've ever had.
Enormous menu. Lots of choices. Very tasty. My wife had her meal mildly spicy but I was more adventuresome and stepped up to moderately spicy. We were both happy. Enjoyable place to dine
Went there for anniversary celebration. Area outside was slightly deceiving but inside ambiance was very nice. Food was a bit pricey but service and taste made up for it. Food is very fresh and very authentic. My wife and I loved it and will be going back at some point. Overall, if you are looking for good Indian food, look no further!
Went there for diner and was very pleased with the restaurant. Great customer service, inside is very quiet. Waitresses are very respectful and the food is AWESOME. I will go again and recommend who never went to consider this restaurant while in Raleigh.
Service slow but it was crowded. Ambiance in need of updating. Food was good.
My friend and I visited Royal India as part of our girls night out and we enjoyed ourselves! I called about an hour before my reservation time and the person that I spoke with assured me that we were fine to just come on in. Our service was great and the food was amazing we had a couple of appetizers and the royal feast so that we got the chance to try a few different menu items. I will definitely be going again.
Service was awful. I could understand if the place was busy and service was tight. However, it was empty. The waitress came over, gave us menus then sat down utilizing her mobile phone. We tried to get her attention, but neither she or the owner noticed. No water was bought to the table after waiting a while. We continued to wait and watched the owner have a lengthy conversation with the only other customers there - completely ignoring us. When we got up to leave then he came over. Really sad to have an establishment with awful attention to customer service.
The food here was exceptional. It just might be the best in Raleigh!
The restaurant is beautiful so we looked forward to our meal. Everyone was unfriendly and the waitress would slam the used dishes into a container which made us jump each time she did it. The host ignored us and spent his time on the cell phone. The chef is the only one that seemed to care that we had a good experience.
