With halal meats and fresh vegetables, the chefs at Royal Kabab craft more than 60 dishes of Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi origin. Their predominantly traditional items include mango lassi, tandoori chicken, lamb vindaloo, and vegetable biryani. They also whip up less familiar entrees, including five vegetarian curries and Gobi Manchurian, whose fried cauliflower famously portrayed Frank Sinatra's role in the all-food remake of The Manchurian Candidate. Visitors can take their feasts to go or eat in Royal Kabab's cozy dining room equipped with complementary WiFi.
The close-knit family culture that is so prevalent in India makes its way across the pond to India's, where the Kumar clan—mom and pop Suraj and Sudesh, son Raghu, and daughter Rozy—dish up flavorful curries, stews, and roasted meats created in the kitchen by nephew and chef Zeenat Bhanot. They work together to ply patrons with both meaty and vegetarian morsels scented with cardamom, ginger, and fenugreek.
Like the trail of raisins Marco Polo left to find his way back along the Silk Road, the bill of fare spans the subcontinent. South Indian mulligatawny soups and Goan chicken vindaloo mingle with Mughlai butter-based sauces and North Indian Khara Pasanda lamb. These fragrant dishes tantalize noses amid the dining area's impressive art collection of colorful paintings and gilded statues.
At Royal Karma, the first thing that strikes you is the dining room's hip, muted red glow. Then there are the beaded chandeliers and dimmed lights
keep the vibe going as the restaurant's Northern Indian specialties start to come out. Dishes here run the gamut from palak paneer?spinach with
Indian cheese?to lamb simmered in yogurt sauce, among a list that also includes curry and tandoori bites. But the kitchen's signature offering has to be its popular biryanis,
raisin-studded dishes of basmati rice tossed with meat and vegetables. Though dinner brings with it a seemingly endless variety of Northern Indian meat and vegetarian dishes, the bottomless lunch buffet
makes it easy to to get a taste of many Royal Karma specialties at once, whether you fill up several plates or just one tall glass.
