Sandy >A Bountiful Royal India
Highest rated Indian for SLCmetro on this site for a reason!.
Don't be fooled by a bad review - this is delicious, quality, homemade indian food. The atmosphere could be better but I've seen much worse in UT. I've been there so many times I'm practically on a first name basis and the service has always great (and fast!). It's a bit of a hidden gem so it's not always crowded.
The chicken tiki masala, lamb vindaloo and mango cake with mango Ice cream keep me coming back for more!
Lousy Food, lousier people.
It looks like a dingy from outside and it well is one. The dishes served here are just ok and there is nothing Indian to it. I have been to lot of Indian places and this place is bad. The people here are worse and you might have to yell or break a glass to get anybody attention.
The briyani was oily and the tika masala - watery. The furniture looks outdated, the place stinks and service does not exist.
There are lot of authentic India food avialable in Sandy. So don't just walk away, run!
Wonderful food, great service.
Love this place! It doesn't look like much from the outside, but Royal India serves up some of the best Indian food I've eaten. The Lamb Saag and Channa Masala are special favorites.
The service is friendly and fast and they seem to go out of their way to make sure you're getting just what you want.
I can't say enough good things about this place - it's one of my very favorites.
Food that's only outclassed by the amazing service.
Bit of a wait to be seated on Saturday night, but I can see why. Food and service are excellent. The waiters use more of a zone defense as opposed to the usual man to man, so you'll have a series of gentleman stopping by the table to make sure everything is ok. I appreciated the carafe of water, as I drink a lot with my meal. Food was delivered lightning fast. Everything was hot. We asked for an extra soup spoon, and they dropped off an extra bowl of soup--no charge. Everyone was cheerful and friendly. Portions are large. Flavors will linger well after your meal.
You can't ask for anything more.
Great place for Indian food!. Great service and great food. The wait to get a table was 20 minutes, but it was a weekend evening so of course it was busy. Once we sat down the service was prompt and our appetizers were out in no time. Loved the food and loved the service.
Incredible service, delicious and nutricious Indian food, great vegetarian options, and at a very reasonable price.
If you want to try something different, delicious, and at a very reasonable price, this is one of the best kept secrets in Salt Lake County. If you live in the Avenues or Downtown, I really think you will be very happy with a short drive to Sandy.
My wife, daughter, and I have visited Royal India twice and both times we were treated like, well, "Royalty". The people who work there are charming and extremely responsive. Royal India has adequate seating for large parties and for couples.
The servings are good sized and the food and wine menus has a wide variety of options. We have all tried different appetizers and entrees (and then tried each others choices)...and the flavor and texture of the food is top notch.
My wife and I are vegetarians and we both felt we had a lot of menu options to choose from. The inside of the restaurant is very clean, with beautiful murals from India on the walls. The tables are nice, painting and lighting are very nice...so don't be fooled that this is located in a strip mall.
This is a hidden gem...and it is now one of our favorite restaurants.
Best Indian Restaurant in Utah.. In England, where I grew up, Indian restaurants are only slightly less in abundance than fish-and-chip shops, so I have loved it almost from birth. Having eaten Indian food in most large US cities, and many countries around the world, I have to say that Royal India is one of my all-time favorites. From the outside it is a most unlikely candidate for fine eating?it?s in a small strip-mall in Sandy with an unassuming frontage?but once you are inside you are immediately struck by four things: the aroma, the ambience, the friendly staff and the fact that it?s nearly always crowded. (On Friday or Saturday prepare for a wait). Everything is delicious, a total flavour shock. If you are new to Indian food and afraid of spicy, ask for it mild or medium. Try the Palak Soup, the mixed appetizers, Chicken Tikka Masala, Lamb Saag, Garlic Naan, Chutneys and Pickles and you wont be disappointed. The rice itself is so delicious, it could be a meal on its own. Yes, it may be a long drive for some, but believe me, its the best in Utah, if not the US.
Exceptional Indian Cuisine!.
Before I tried Royal India I was under the impression that the poor service I had received at other Indian restaurants in the valley was "normal". Now I tell everyone I'm spoiled. The other restaurants in the valley pale in comparison to Royal India. The service there is wonderful! Everyone is very friendly and they never make you feel rushed. Lovely atmosphere.
The food is amazing. I've been a curry lover since I was a kid, but it wasn't until I had Royal India's curry that I began craving it. Their appetizers are a wonderful treat and I find myself enjoying them just as much as the main course. Their chutney is always delicious - always. And their rice is spectacular. I have tried to re-create it at home with no luck. When I have rice at other Indian restaurants it seems extremely bland and uninspired.
It may be a bit out of the way, but Royal India is WELL worth the drive. The food is very reasonably priced and you will find that you get more than enough food for what you pay. I always have left-overs and to tell the truth, the curry is often even better the next day! If you're a lover of great Indian food or you want to try it for the first time, I highly recommend making a trip to Royal India. You won't regret it!
Maybe the best in Utah.
This place is excellent! Order off the South Indian part of the menu.
They have a decent wine list. I never would have guessed that wine went with Indian food, but it can!
Top tandoori in the state with a range of whole Indian cuisine no other restaurant offers.
Garlic naan is excellent
Lamb saag isn't much to look at but the complex flavors knock your socks off and curl your toes in pleasure.
