Every aspect of this meal was delicious! Perfect samosas stuffed with decadent vegetables paired with generously portioned dipping sauces. Naan breads pillowy and comforting. Oh...the Butter chicken is perfection on a plate! Some of the BEST Indian food I’ve ever had!

We had a delicious lunch at Royal India Bistro. They serve both southern and northern Indian dishes. We loved the masala dosa and the lentil soup. They offer lunch special deals every day including the weekends. Highly recommended!

The food here is okay but I won't go back because the man who answers the phone and seems to be the owner has a terrible attitude. Apparently I left my credit card there when I paid the bill and when I called and described...More
