The lunch buffet is quite good value and tasty. The food is reportedly halal, which made my muslim friends happy. Unfortunately, they are bad at dealing with allergies. My friend who is allergic to onions tried to order a dish without onions, but that was not possible to order. Any good restaurant should be able to make a dish without... More

I do it typically visit Indian restaurants but I went with a colleague and was happy with the restaurant and menu options. They had combination dinners that gave you a little taste of a few signature Indian dishes. I went with the lamb dish and had it medium spiced and was very happy with everything they brought out.

The paneer tikka masala was delicious! Staff was friendly and attentive and let us choose the spiciness for each entree on a scale of 1-5. Restaurant was nice and quiet despite construction next door. This was a nice alternative to the loud sports bars for dinner. A little pricey but overall great experience.

After a number of local craft beers it did seem appropriate to finish off the evening with a curry. I have never had a terribly good curry in the US before. This was really the best I have had. The food was goo, pretty authentic (Considering) reasonable spiced (Though could have been spicier) and very ample in portion size. Accompanied... More

I ate at Royal India twice during my four night stay in San Diego, absolutely outstanding food! I was thrilled to see great vegetarian food on the menu, traditional items and some new options too. Difficult to choose! Everything I ordered was delicious, seasoned as requested, and generous portioned. The servers were highly attentive and friendly. There is patio dining... More
