I have been to this restaurant a lot and it is the best Indian I have ever had. The Butter chicken is amazing and you must try the Royal Cutlets they are delicious. The staff are amazing. Umesh is the man !! Always makes you feel so welcome. Hands down the best restaurant.

My partner and I live in Lilydale and have been to Royal Time twice in a month. The food is varied and delicious and the staff are extremely friendly. Will happily return on a regular basis.

Having been to Royal Time and reviewing it before, this restaurant just gets better. The food quality was excellent and following Umesh's advice the "heat" was exactly right for our palates. Take away is available with online ordering making the whole process more efficient. We will certainly be going back for more.

We had a fabulous meal here. The pappadums on arrival were a nice welcome. The goat curry was excellent, with loads of yummy gravy. The vegetable korma was also very tasty, once again with lots of sauce. Lucky we ordered the roti and to lacha pratha mop up all those delicious sauces. Would definitely eat here again when we next... More

We had been looking for a good Indian restaurant for ages. We come from the UK where the Indian food is just amazing, so we know what it should taste like. We were so impressed by this place, food was great and service spotless. Shame we live a bit far from it but we will be back for sure.

You will be made very welcome at the Royal Time. Umesh and Ashu will advise you about their dishes and adjust the 'heat' according to your taste. The serves are not huge but ample and the quality is excellent. BYO wine is available and a selection of beers and soft drinks can be purchased.
