I went here yesterday because I had a craving for Indian food, and I know that this place always delivers great food at a great price. Even though every time I go in there and order the same thing, the guy always gives me salad, when I specify that I don't...but he always fixes his mistake as well. Anyway, I... More

Don't let the looks of this place turn you away! We had excellent food here; the naan is freshly made, really good and tender. Every dish has a distinct flavor, and is served nice and hot. My favorite was the lentil dish and my husband chowed down on the chicken Marsala, even went back for seconds! This gas station also... More

I was a little wary of buying food from a gas station, but the first bite immediately let me know I had made the right choice in trying this place. The chicken kabobs are awesome and the other dishes are made to order (though there is also a lunch buffet with about 7 or 8 items from 11 am to... More

Basic family run place in Royal Farms gas station. I go back whenever I pass by. Reasonably priced. Lamb curry is my favorite.

Before going there, we had no idea where Royal Kabab was. We went there because of a coupon in the mail and assumed it was in a building beside a gas station. So, take away all the jokes about it being literally inside a gas station, the food wasn't bad at all. Granted it isn't the Royal Taj in Columbia,... More

Royal Kabab is certainly fantastic if you are expecting gas station food at a gas station. If you are expecting top quality indian food, well…temper your expectations. While it is good, the lunch buffet looks a bit warmed up like leftovers. If you wait for it to be cooked fresh, it's worth the wait. I found the food to be... More

What fun to have amazingly delicious Pakastani/Bangladeshi/Indian food INSIDE a gas station! Raj was working the counter and bent over backwards to make sure we were satisfied and happy--what a great guy. We were the only eat in customers but business seemed to be steady for take out orders. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the paneer tikka masala. At... More

If you are looking for good Indian food in a convenient (!) location, this is the place. The 'restaurant' is in a BP gas station on Rte 3, easily accessible north or south. It's co-located with a Subway. There's a limited but very good buffet available weekdays, and a rather extensive a la carte menu. Food is actually rather good,... More

The food is great! The ambiance is…let's call it kitschy. You are in the BP gas station store -- but aside from that and plastic plates and "silver"ware, it is wonderful. We are regulars and I love the lamb saag, and my wife the biryani. The vegetable pakora, vegetable samosa and and tandoori wing appetizers are also excellent. Entrees are... More
