I love this restaurant - they separated it from the grocery about a year or so ago and now have a banquet hall. The buffet is great and their a la carte menu is wonderful as well. Vegetables Jalfrezi are yum, and Chicken Tikka Masala is a favorite of my daughter. I LOVE the Bollywood music videos blasting in the backround - just adds to the atmosphere for me! Not everyone's cup of tea, though perhaps.

Avoid this place. Though this has a very good party space, the service and timely attendance is lacking. They charge for kids of all ages, first restaurant where they charge for kids below 5. Owner says they count the number by eating not by age, unimaginable CHEAP talk. Try other alternatives deshi village or shahnawaz or any...
All my guests were waiting in line for starters to be refilled, Finally I had to ask them to start with the main course after yelling at the owner and staff. You will be having one assistant who is looks after your party and also the main restaurant for which you will pay 15% service charge besides the TIP.
Food is cheaper than other restaurants but his counting and delayed refilling of food compensates the low price.
Bottom line the owner plays very cheap tricks and will make you leave with a bitter taste.

Pros: Spacious

Cons: Owner Paramjeet, very Cheap talk

Lunch Buffet is Great. Lot's of vegetarian dishes, at least one lamb dish and usually one or two chinese or mexican style dishes. A la Carte dinner entrees might be even better (Can't say for sure as I always order the spectacular lamb saag and can't say if the other dishes are as good). Avoid the market down the road with the same name. It sucks. Usha Market in Great Valley Plaza is the market to go to.

Food tasted stale, and there was hardly any chicken in the chicken curry. You cannot taste the main ingredients such as chicken or paneer or veggies due to the overwhelming spices and the tiny pieces of meat/paneer. And the dishes are definitely not worth the price tagged. Try deshi village, or shahnawaz.. Much better food and service for almost the same price.

We hosted a party for 70 guests. And Royal India charges gratuity of 15%, but there was only one waiter serving all 70 guests, PLUS handling their regular restaurant customers. Where is the service we paid for??? They also charged full price for kids although during reservation they mentioned all kids under 5 would eat free, so we liberally said 20 kids even though there was only 12. I mean name one restaurant that charges for kids under 5. He even charged for the birthday boy who was 1, an infant! Simply do not trust the words of the owner, Paramjeet.

Do not go.....rotton food. Unfriendly people. Always empty tables...which tell you the whole story. I went into the place thinking a guest will be given a royal treatment but you are taken for granted.

I went to Royal India grocery store in malvern and I had a really good experience there. Everything was so easy to find for me and the staff at royal india really helped me out a lot. The ambiance of the store was really enticing. I recommend everyone to go there and shop for indian groceries.

Better than Himalayan and cheaper too ($7.50). They bring hot bread out to your table! The gulab juman tasted like syrup soaked donut holes but everything else was really tasty. Can't speak to their a la carte menu and in my experience sometimes restaurants that do a primary lunch buffet for their business can have vastly different a la carte stuff. They do have a TV blasting Bollywood and Indo music videos if that matters to you.

They also have a fabulous grocery down the road with a mind boggling array of stuff.

Hi,
Having recently moved from san fran, cali i've had a hard time finding an indian resturant that i liked.
Finally ~ this resturant is what i was looking for.
chu want it mild ~ they'll make it mild, chu want it spicy ~ watch out.

Rich flavorful meats, good use of spices ... it's lamb korma, naan & marsala tea for me. the naan is the traditional kind that usually takes a day of labor (kneeding) to make.
Not a buffet buff myself, but they seem to have a popular, clean buffet.

As they seem to cook only to order ~ Call ahead for takeout ~ an order for 2 usually takes 20-30 min and will cost about $35-40.
This is not a ritzy expensive resturant which is not what i wanted -- I wanted clean & organized with good friendly service and this place has it. Seems to be a family run store with the resturant in the back.

Directions: 202 -> 29S -> 30W (on the right-hand side ~.3mi after intersection)
Hope I helped... enjoy! :)
