Experience cuisine once reserved for royalty as brothers Sam and Jag Kambo lovingly re-create their mother's north Indian recipes. Everything from the mint chutney to the smoky tomato sauce that graces the chicken tikka masala is made from scratch. Dining here is first-rate, whether it's the daily lunch buffet or the sumptuous dinners that include sizzling chili-lemon chicken kebabs, indulgent lamb korma, and garlic naan. Elegant but comfortable decor is highlighted by a carved antique maple bar, stunning chandeliers, and golden arches from a palace in Jodhpur. Don't miss the imported Indian beers, mango martinis, or desserts, including mango mousse and rice pudding redolent of warm spices.

I have eaten Indian food all my life and had a chance to enjoy the food of Royal India last week for my friends birthday. I was amazed with the quality and decor. The food was very fresh and flavorful. The vegetable coconut curry and lamb korma with garlic nan were my favorite. I think Royal India is the best Indian restaurant in San Diego for the quality and ambiance. I will be back again.
