Disappointed. I don't understand the selection criteria of groupon. Why this restaurant was included on their list.

Food was OK but the service was abysmal. We were the only ones there and it took about 40 minutes to get served. The waiter could hardly speak English which didn't help.

When we entered the restaurant and said we had a Groupon, the two people (one, possibly the owner?) looked at each other. We didn't feel that they were particularly pleased to see us. We ordered the vegetarian thali. Although the food was quite good, there were dishes substituted for those listed on the menu. I was particularly interested in the saag paneer, but received and dish with the homemade cheese and onions (instead of spinach). My friend hates onions, and I wanted the spinach! I want to be informed if a dish isn't available. On the menu, it appeared that there was a choice of two kinds of breads with the thali, however, we were told that there was only one.

About This Deal

As a culinary palindrome, naan tastes the same backward as it does forward, like the bananab or a Toyota. Take a bite in every direction with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of North Indian fare at Royal India.

The culinary wunderkinds at Royal India wrangle a dizzying array of authentic North Indian fare to serve on their menu. Lead digestion machines in pre-meal stretches with meat samosas ($4.50) before eradicating stomach howls with a whole order of tandoori chicken ($16.99), punished like a sassy snowman in the inferno of a tandoor oven. The saag paneer ($13.99) showcases a delicious two-step between homemade cubes of cheese and spinach-cream sauce, and all entrees benefit from the sauce-sopping powers of naan ($1.95). Ordering gaajar ka halwa, a pudding made from shredded carrot, milk, almonds, raisins, and saffron ($2.99), lets servers know that diners have glimpsed their superhero signals in the night sky and would like the check.

About Royal India Express

The owner and chef of the recently renovated Royal India Express was born in Punjab—an Indian region famed for its tandoori cuisine. Now under new management, the restaurant re-creates the tastes of that region, with a particular specialization in biryani. The chef roasts marinated shrimp in a clay tandoor oven, stuffs naan with garlic, and simmers tender goat meat in creamy curry sauce. Diners can also order from the Indo-China portion of the menu, which includes entrees such as chili-spiced paneer cheese with onions and peppers. An on-site sweets shop allows customers to taste traditional Indian desserts such as doughy gulab jamun or kheer.
