Kirkland >Royal India Restaurant
Great Food, but be sure to check your bill!.
I have been to Royal India twice and both times the food was fantastic!
The first time we sat in the tent, which has a beautiful ambiance. We ordered two entrees, an order of bread, and an Indian beer, which the waiter recommended. When we received the bill they had added rice for a $3 charge. We did receive rice with our meal, but on the menu it says that this is included with the meal. Also, the Indian beer that was 'recommended' tasted like Budweiser and cost $7.
The second time we visited we asked to sit in the tent but one person said it would be an additional $10 charge and another said is would be an additional $20 charge (they need to get their story straight). This seemed strange because on our last visit there was no charge mentioned to us. This time we ordered three entrees and two sides of bread. The rice charge appeared on our bill again. When we mentioned it to the server she removed it without a question (I think this is a scam). On this visit we also had an entertainment book coupon that says up to a $13 value, but the server said this is wrong and it is only up to a $10 value. Kind of questionable if you ask me.
Great Ambiance. I recently visited the restaurant. I have to say they have done a great job. They redecorated with a tented area in the restaurant. The tent has low seating and is for large parties of 4 or more. I took a peak as it wasnt finished and it looks like ure in a moroccan tent. The food is always great but the decor gives the restaurant a great new look. They will also start hookah smoking outdoors by mid june and belly dancing. They have a new menu coming out as told by the owner. I love the food presently and cant wait for some of their new entrees. A restaurant to definately visit with large groups.
Great restaurant. I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and I always walk out very satisfied by the food and service. I highly recommend this restaurant. I have heard they are renovating the restaurant. The owners daughter told me they would be starting regular belly dancing performances as well as musical evenings. They are also making arrangements for outdoor seating and will be introducing bar-b-q nights. I personally cant wait for the changes to the restaurant.
I work on the Eastside, so I have only been for lunch, but I can't say enough about their buffet. It is the best I've ever had. I actually don't bother going to other Indian buffets now since I end up being disappointed I am not at Royal India.
This is a great place to go for lunch. It is never crowded, lots of parking, the food is always fresh and the owner is wonderful. Very often he will bring over Chai Tea or mango ice cream for us to have on the house. I have not been to a restaurant with better service.
Don't miss it!!
Graciousness 101. We frequent this restaurant for it's lunch buffet ($7 and can't be beat) because we like to pick and choose our foods...a litttle of this and lot of that! If you get there when the food on the buffet is fresh, it can't be beat by any other restaurant on the Eastside! But while the food is wonderful (the rice pudding with rosewater will make you want to cry, it's so good), it is the sheer graciousness and wamth of the owner that keeps us coming back. Recently, because of a holiday weekend, the lunch buffet was not up because the owner anticipated a slower business day. He insisted that we choose our three favorite things from the menu, and he not only had the kitchen prepare them for us, but charged us only the $7 buffet price. THE EASTSIDE COULD USE A LESSON IN SERVICE FROM THIS MAN.
