We finally tried this. It’s only a couple of miles from our house, but somehow we never seemed to remember it when we thought “Indian”–which is a pity, because the only other choices nearby are Amravathi (meh) or Rajpoot (okay, but it seems like the smallish lunch buffet is the same every day).
Royal Curry does lunch a little differently. You order the main course off the dinner menu and pay the dinner price, but in addition to the main course you get an appetizer (pakora), naan, and rice. (The on-line menu says something about a lunch special for $8.99–I have no idea if they still have that, but we saw no evidence of it.)
Mark got Chicken Vindaloo, which he thought was pretty good. I was less impressed with the Chicken Bhuna, but then again, I got it mostly to try something new, so maybe I just don’t like Chicken Bhuna. I would certainly go back, and next time I’ll probably stick to one of my standards (Bhindi Masala or Chicken Korma).
However, they don’t have thalis.
Being as close as it is definitely adds to the appeal, not to mention the fact that the lunch special is not a buffet and the parking is more convenient than in Edison.
(It’s actually Royal Curry [Exotic] Indian Cuisine, not Royal Curry House or Palace or anything like that.)
