This was our second visit to this restaurant. Our first visit to this restaurant was in April 2012 when it was under different management and had a different name. So now its Valentine's day 2014, pouring down rain, and we did not have a reservation at the place we wanted to go and it was booked solid. So we saw the name had changed at this place and hoped for the best. The service was very friendly and we were seated right away. We ordered a cheese naan which was basically a doughy pizza crust with what appeared to be shredded mozzarella cheese on top. We always order cheese naan if it is on the menu but we have never come across one that was more like flavorless pizza dough in all of our travels. The pompadons were the standard crisps but the chutneys were more like runny sauces with no substance. We also ordered the hot chicken wings which were heat hot but not spicy at all. I ordered the chicken vindaloo which was very spicy yet still had a good flavor. My wife ordered the chicken jalfrezzi and asked for it to be spicy and it was smoking spicy but if it had a flavor you couldn't tell for the spice so that might have been our fault. On a positive note they did serve cobra beer, not cold, but available, which is nice because a lot of Indian restaurants only serve Kingfisher. The big negative for us was the fact that it was Valentine's day and there was a guy who may or may not have been the owner, sitting at a table watching loud T.V. on his lap top. We asked if they could play some Indian music but, the guy with the lap top just started playing Bollywood music videos so be careful what you ask for. Again the service was very nice but we can not recommend the Royal Tandoori.
