Really enjoyable experience – I've visiting Royal India Express ever since it has come under new management last year. I've truely enjoyed their clay oven bread, tandoori, and curry. They also serve wonderful vegan dishes, full of spices and flavor. For those whom haven't tried Indian Yogert drink, lasse, you ought to order their mango lasse, the best in town.
Thieves – My Fiance and I moved to Raleigh a year ago. We had been looking for a great Indian place to try. After asking around, we found this place it was very quiet and pleasant the food was good the service was slightly below par at first but all in all was an excellent evening out. At the time we enjoyed it so much we became regulars eating their 2-3 times a week to the points where we'd walk in, sit down and they would bring our drinks to us without even asking for it... we thought WOW Great Service huh? wrong!! 1 month later i had recieved my credit card statement and as i glanced over the bill i noticed that These people were not only charging us for the meal which was between 40-50 bucks + the 15 dollar tip i was leaving. They also tacked on EACH TAB an additional 25 dollars now i could see if there were 4 or 5 of us eating out but dinner for 2 costing 40-50 bucks 3x a week + TIP and then taking another $25.00 per bill is fraudulant rediculous and in my eyes makes the wait staff no better than common theives. if you want to eat out the foods great sure but just be careful when you get your bill!!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Authentic Indian cuisine cooked in charcoal clay ovens, includes seafood, tandoori, chicken, lamb and goat specialties served in traditional atmosphere.
Words can't desribe! – I am ashamed of myself. I have lived around the corner from Royal India for years and never been until last night. The service was good, everyone was so nice but the food blew my mind. Do yourself a favor and eat here. The price is right and the food is fantastic.
Best Indian in the Triangle – We've been eating at Royal India Express for years and are now eating there 1-2 times per week. The staff is amazing, always ready to greet you with a smile but the food is what keeps you coming back. The new Dosas are fantastic, best I've had at any South Indian restaurant. The butter chicken literally melts in your mouth. The goat thali has exceptional flavor and the Bhiryani outshines anything I've had here or anywhere else. I'm told it is not "traditional" but don't let tradition spoil your enjoyment, I think my relatives only come visit so they can get a Royal India Bhiryani fix. Overall, I can't recommend it enough. You can even dine in now with all the nice cosmetic improvements they've completed.
2006 Royal India Rocks!! – I've been going to Royal India Express on Glenwood for about 2 years now and I love it. The food is authentic and delicious, especially the Palek Paneer (creamy spinach) and the naan is excellent, tasty and just right. I don't know if they had problems in the past, prior to my patronage, but I have never had a problem with them. Lunches are an especially good value - you seat yourself and things are kept simple, paper plates and plastic forks to go with the excellent courses. My fave is the Chicken Tikka kebab, with the palek paneer, naan (try the garlic naan sometime, it's divine!), and a mango lassi. Service is friendly and good. Just remember, nothing is very fancy there, but it doesn't matter because the food is so good!!
