Royal India

formerlyfingers | May 27, 2008 10:38 AM

Had the day off and tripped around by foot in the Plus 15 network as I sometimes like to do. I ended up for lunch at Royal India, the space on 4th Ave that used to be Chutney.

$17.95 for the buffet, which was huge and well stocked. There were 4 different meats: lamb and beef curries as well as tandoori and butter chicken. 4 different cold salads and a good range of vegetable offerings. The usual East Indian Buffet fare I guess, but with everything at once, rather than just certain dishes rotated every few days.

The place is really large, with seating of well over 100 I would guess.

What struck me about the food was how fresh everything tasted. The meat dishes were excellent, but I found the vegetable items a bit bland across the board. Heat level was medium which I appreciated. The pakoras were excellent. Their raita was also great, which is of huge importance to me.

This will certainly be slotted into my rotation of Indian restos I frequent.

Overall it was a very good to excellent experience.
