I can neither criticize nor rave about any of the items on the lunch buffet. They were all decent, but not striking. On the plus side, the food trays were kept well supplied and plenty hot. The salad offering wasn't special. There was a vegetable mix with jalapenos, citrus rinds, and other ingredients that would have been better with smaller... More

First and foremost now it changed its name as Coriander. Just the name but food is as assessment as it was. They serve freshly made tasty Indian food. I love Paratha and Black Dal and of course Biryani. We had Veg Biryani it's tasting awesome with local veggies and spices.

We have eaten dinner here three times recently, and have been delighted each time. The host has expertly assisted us with unfamiliar Indian dishes. The food is delicious, though a bit rich, and the meat is advertised as 100% halal, meaning it has been raised and slaughtered humanely. I think I can taste the difference. Each time, the ambiance has... More

The restaurant is clean and spacious so you can have a nice conversation without having to battle the sounds of other people eating and talking. The buffet has a variety of hot and cold dishes for vegetarians and omnivores. The food was also fresh and hot which does not always happen at Indian restaurants. Commendable service and friendly staff.

We went for a family lunch buffet and the were in for a pleasant surprise with small crispy masala dosa's along with the meal. They were atrociously delicious !! The starters with palak pakodas n masala vada were awesome. The trouble started with the main course, the daal n palak were oily & the roti's were soggy. The kheer was... More

If you are Indian, you will realize how terrible is the indian food there. dont go. Not sure if the food is modified as per American taste, but an authentic Indian food will definitely be much much better.

My wife and i have visited Royal for the weekday lunch buffet twice, both times it was very good, if you're new to Indian food, a buffet is the way to go, if you're a seasoned veteran and know there's a lot of things you like and don't want to settle for a few entrees, this is a good place...

Arrived in Austin April 14th 2014. In town for Moto GP at the Circuit of the America's. Stayed at Holiday Inn, Sunset Valley and next door was the Royal India. Never had Indian food before. I asked the manager to be gentle with the spices and he suggested Chicken Marsala for a first timer with medium heat. I could taste... More

We have traveled throughout India and have been to untold number of Indian restaurants in many countries. We think this may be the best Indian cuisine we have had. Unlike many Indian restaurants, this one has a fully stocked bar and an ample wine selection. From appetizers to desserts everything was tasty and perfectly seasoned. What a joy to dine... More

The service is fantastic. The food is great. I have never tasty such good fresh food. It seems like they prepare/blend/grind spices the same day. The taste is so fresh. The atmosphere is very tradional Indian with soft music playing in the back ground. One must visit this restaurant while in Austin Texas.
