Royal India Ratings and Reviews
Great Indian Restaurant in Raleigh
Went there for diner and was very pleased with the restaurant. Great customer service, inside is very quiet. Waitresses are very respectful and the food is AWESOME. I will go again and recommend who never went to consider this restaurant while in Raleigh.
My friend and I visited Royal India as part of our girls night out and we enjoyed ourselves! I called about an hour before my reservation time and the person that I spoke with assured me that we were fine to just come on in. Our service was great and the food was amazing we had a couple of appetizers and the royal feast so that we got the chance to try a few different menu items. I will definitely be going again.
Service was awful. I could understand i ...
Service was awful. I could understand if the place was busy and service was tight. However, it was empty. The waitress came over, gave us menus then sat down utilizing her mobile phone. We tried to get her attention, but neither she or the owner noticed. No water was bought to the table after waiting a while. We continued to wait and watched the owner have a lengthy conversation with the only other customers there - completely ignoring us. When we got up to leave then he came over. Really sad to have an establishment with awful attention to customer service.
The restaurant is beautiful so we looked forward to our meal. Everyone was unfriendly and the waitress would slam the used dishes into a container which made us jump each time she did it. The host ignored us and spent his time on the cell phone. The chef is the only one that seemed to care that we had a good experience.
Loved this place!
We had a group of 9 and were very pleased with this restaurant. The waitstaff was courteous and professional, and the food was amazing!I would definitely recommend this place on the food alone. They even brought us complementary dessert!
The only quibble I have is that the service was a bit slow. The restaurant was not crowded at all but there still was a noticeable wait for our entrees. It wasn't bad though, and I'll chalk that up to our group being large. It didn't tarnish our experience at all. Will definitely recommend to friends!
The manager or hired help was so nosy and unprofessional and kept harassing me and wife about how great the restaurant is and didn't allow us to have our own private time. The manager kept staring at my wife through out the time we were there. We felt very uncomfortable and do not recommend this place.
Amazing Indian Cuisine in Raleigh!
We loved our reservation at Royal India. The menu was impressive and the food did not disappoint. Would recommend trying several of their naan (we loved the garlic and butter one) options. You can let them know the level of spice you're comfortable with, so their dishes are safe even for those worried about spiciness. Highly recommend folks give this place a try!
Excellent Indian food with great service.
This was our first visit and we both had excellent meals. I had Shrimp Jalfrezi which is shrimp with vegetables. My wife had Shrimp Masala which she raved about. The shrimp were very large and tasty, I would estimate they were in the 15-20/lb. range. The naan was excellent. The portions were about the right size for both of us. The décor was appropriate for an Indian restaurant and the staff were friendly and efficient. While the location is in an older strip mall, that is true of most of Raleigh's restaurants- e.g. the Saint Jacques, one of Raleigh's best restaurants, is in an equally old strip mall. The only negative is that the prices are slightly high for Indian food.
Great Food, even for those new to the Indian Food
We are frequent diners at Royal India. We took a couple of friends to dinner, who are new to Indian food. And they loved it. You can't go wrong, everything on their menu is great. You can even have them make it mild, medium or hot.
The service was really good. Service was not prompt in the beginning making us wait for a longer time than usual. Rest of the dining experience was great. Staff were friendly and the food was delicious!
Paneer Tikka, Mutter Mushroom - must try.
BEST INDIAN FOOD EVER. PERIOD
My wife really likes Indian food and it was her birthday, so we gave Royal India a try, and boy!!, what a treat we were in for!. The waiter suggested the Royal feast for two, so we get a sense of the Indian cuisine. Best decision ever!, the food was cooked to perfection, seasoned just right. All the dishes we tried were mouth watering!...the feast even included desserts (amazing), rice, naan (best I've tried so far) and a chai tea at the end...what a great night! Our waiter (who I believe is the owner as well) was very friendly and helpful. Word of advice, don't judge a book by its cover...on the outside it looks a little rough, and inside the decor is a little dated to our taste, but the food makes up for it big time!!! Highly recommend!
