BAD FOOD, DISHONEST PEOPLE – This place was a total ripoff, and the food sucked!
The food was way overcooked, they gave us a dinner menu at 1:30 in the afternoon, there was no spice in the food that we requested to be "medium spice," they charged $3 for rice that was supposed to come with the meals!, their entree prices were HIGH ($16 for one), then they also overcharged for other things on the menu!! The extra rice charge, a dollar more for an entree, a dollar more for the naan. VERY DISHONEST PEOPLE AND THE FOOD IS BAD. I would never go there again and recommend that no one waste their time or money at that place. Oh, and they also would not honor the Entertainment Book coupon!! Bottom of the barrel as far as restaurants go. Bad service, too. Never asked how the meal was, offered anything else. I think they took old food that had been sitting around all day and gave that to us. Dry, tasteless.
Food is ok but they change prices to rip you off – They charge you more for a meal if you use a coupon.
They "sometimes charge for rice"
Who ever heard of someone charging for rice at an Indian takeout place?
I will never eat there again!
They are not honest people.
Take a close look at your bill! – We were there a few years ago, and when it came time to return my change, I was shorted $5!
When asked about it, the server acted like he was caught trying to get away with something - I believe I was working with the owner!
The food was good - but the deal with the bill was bizarre.... never dealt with anything like that before in any restaurant. I have not been back there since.
Extra charge for side orders and dishonoring the coupons – I was there recently on December 7th friday night with a 7$ off coupon. When the mangement discover that I have a 7$ off coupon,they charged me extra for the rice. Where by menu says all the main dishes are served with rice, this attitude have extreamly disappointed me. I want to ask the management why do they do that? if they want to charge extra for rice then please stop adverting the coupons, stop cheating customers and try honoring the coupons accordingly
Dishonest staff - Ripped off – I went there a few days ago. the only reason i went there was that i had a coupon from ENTERTAINMENT book which they told me that they wont accept it that day ???- anyways food was OK. when the bill was given to us it seemed like a little more than expected, when i paid they charged my credit card more than what was on the bill (3-4 dollars) ??? when i told them they charged me wrong amount, they said they didnt and then they showed me a totally different bill ??? - we were the only people there and there was no chance that it would be someone else's bill.. very DISHONEST people. i would never go there again!!!!
BEST FOOD – I was recomended by a freind, their food is excellent. If you ever passing by just jump in to the restaurant and ask for their LAMB SHAHI KORMA with PESTO NAN bread.
Rip-off artists! – While the food and atmosphere is good at Royal India, their dishonesty detracts from the entire dining experience. They regularly charge extra for rice, which is supposed to be included with dinner entrees and jack up the general cost of the meal in any way they can..... including keeping the wait staff's tips. This I know, because my daughter was a waitress there, and never received her tips.... only to be told several weeks down the road that she would not be receiving her tips. Also, recently when I ordered food there and used a coupon, I tallied the amount that should've been owed before going in.... the overall bill was 10.00 more than it should have been. (Adding in the rice and taking out only 7.00 for an entree, although my cheapest entree was 10.95). I like their food and it's convenient for takeout, but we go there less and less..... they rip people off!
Check your bill also! – I agree with the bill scam! The food is good, but they change the amount in the bill. We ordered stuffed naan and curries. The total was about $5 more than it should have ben, but I thought I remembered the price in the menu wrong. The waiter was hiding the amount of each food at the casher. I thought it was kinda strange. But I think I was right. Be sure to check your bill before you pay!! Yeah, they added additional rice charge even though all the curries come with rice.
Quiet, very good food, great service, atmosphere is so-so – We arrived at 7pm on a Thursday and there was only one other table in use. It's in a mini-mall type area next to a bar that had a good collection of smokers outside. The table was rickety.
That being said, the food was very good and the service was great - not expensive, either. If you can get past the asthetics it's a good place.
