That's the place to be for good Mughlai cuisine way back in the mid 1990s when I was a foreign student at KMC, Mangalore. Boy! has it brought back fond memories. The dish that I have always ordered was Rogan Gosht to go with my Rumali rottis. I found that combination to be awesome. At other times, I would order... More

Mutton biryani is amazing with perfectly cooked meat and non spicy rice cooked to perfections. This one of the very few place that you get a authentic biryani in Mangalore. problem is the parking place hence most of the time ordered for home delivery , great service on time delivery as well. Happy with the service.

Biryani both Chicken and mutton is my Favourite here. The Birayani is generlally dry so dont forget to tell the waiter to add more masala. Some delicacies that i like here are Paya soup, mutton golluti, Tandoori chicken and BIRYAANI. Only drawback is the parking. One has to park on the road side somewhere.

Being in the south India people often crave for north Indian mughlai food. look no further just visit Royal Darbar. The ambiance is very lively with comfortable seating. the staff is very friendly. The restaurant offers variety of north Indian dishes which go great with butter naan. paneer Tikka is a must try. Overall a very good restaurant. Bon Appetite!

Good food for Mughlai delicacies. Both veg and non veg options are available, although goes without saying non vegetarians will feast here on the food. Biryanis, Tikka and the regular fare available here. The place is among the best Mughlai food counters in Mangalore

Food is very good. Service poor, they served starters, main course everything together to let food get cold. I have to ask them to bring food once starter is finished. I mean, such a dumb manager in the restaurant. But food is appreciable.

Have been visiting Royal Durbar for a number of years. The mughlai food is indeed very good. It is a nice place to have food with family and friends. The cost too is reasonable.

I have gone through the peoples review here on trip advisor before I planned to visit the Royal Darbar. I tried Paya Shorba, JalJeera, Biryani and Baklava. I have tried these in other places but royal darbar was not so special in making any of these. Since I have tried these before in very good restaurants, It didn't excite the... More
