Lovely waitstaff, Excellent Food! You can request up to 15* if you are like my husband, who loves crazy hot. My Pomegranate Chicken at 3* was perfect. We tried an Indian wine that complimented the spice very well. We've been several times over the years, and I think they've made some changes. We'll be back!

The food was pretty good, but expensive. The buffet had limited options and was $12.95 per person plus tax. The atmosphere was nice. Tables outside had plenty of shade. Inside the restaurant was clean and nicely decorated.

We live nearby. The food has always been tasty and not as heavy as some Indian can be (minimal to no after burn or heaviness). They say they grind their own spices daily and the taste verifies it. They adjust the spicy (hot) levels to taste. A friend of mine from London said this was the best Indian food he... More

Great samosas, every day lunch buffet. Fair prices for good Indian food. We keep going back. Even when the buffet is not set up, they offer the menu as a buffet substitute.

Ordered delivery from this restaurant and was very disappointed in the overall quality of our dinner for 4. Tandoori Lamb/chicken were inedible and tough. We had to throw away all of our dry appetizers. As for the main course, the curries all tasted the same and there was nothing special/tasty about it. The breads were ok. My friends or I... More

This was my first visit to The Royal India Restaurant in Kirkland and it was excellent! Food was delicious, full of flavor and served hot; wait staff were courteous, especially trying to correct our bill at the end (we had a 'groupon'). The atmosphere was pleasant, and décor elegant - I will definitely return on my next visit.

This is a nice place and located just opposite to Jaunita Beach. Staff is friendly and you can feel it is a family who runs the restaurant. Food quality can be improved further as many of the dishes taste same. Also if they could have kids friendly crockery too.:)
