Went on St Patrick’s day because all of the Irish pubs were packed, and it turned out to be a great decision. My wife had the Vindaloo chicken and I had a similar curry butter chicken entree, and both were outstanding. The wait staff also...More

Loved this restaurant. It was casual, yet elegant; jeans or dressy, and proximity was the best! Close to the civic center, gaslamp district, convention center. We parked in the Ralph's grocery store underground (two hours free), which is only one block away. But the food...More

Went to Royal India on the recommendation from the hotel’s concierge. The menu had a lot of selections and seemingly could accommodate anyone’s taste. The food was good but not spectacular. Noisy restaurant due to misbehaved children. Convenient to the Gas Lamp District.

Highlight was the Kofta in a spicy sauce. Good nans. Paneer tikka was surprisingly a bit burnt and insufficiently spiced/marinated. Combined with the ambience and service, this is a a good option for friends and family getting together for a meal.
