Every mouthful was packed full of flavour and there were plenty of mouthfuls to be had. Intimate setting with far off views of the Yarra Valley. Staff were attentive yet let us be to enjoy our meal. We ordered some spicy food and got offered the house special sauce to try which was amazing, zesty and fresh flavoursome. If you're... More

When your main arrives 40 minutes after the entré has been eaten you cannot leave happy customers. Food was acceptable -- though not great. Restaurant was half full so they cannot excuse laxity. Second time there and they are slow. Won't return.

This was our first time visiting since being taken over and cannot speak highly enough of this place. They gave a realistic time frame on takeaway times which is always appreciated, and upon arrival it was just coming out of the kitchen. The food was delicious and you could tell it was cooked with a lot of love! Almost a... More

I have been to this restaurant a lot and it is the best Indian I have ever had. The Butter chicken is amazing and you must try the Royal Cutlets they are delicious. The staff are amazing. Umesh is the man !! Always makes you feel so welcome. Hands down the best restaurant.

My partner and I live in Lilydale and have been to Royal Time twice in a month. The food is varied and delicious and the staff are extremely friendly. Will happily return on a regular basis.

Having been to Royal Time and reviewing it before, this restaurant just gets better. The food quality was excellent and following Umesh's advice the "heat" was exactly right for our palates. Take away is available with online ordering making the whole process more efficient. We will certainly be going back for more.

We had a fabulous meal here. The pappadums on arrival were a nice welcome. The goat curry was excellent, with loads of yummy gravy. The vegetable korma was also very tasty, once again with lots of sauce. Lucky we ordered the roti and to lacha pratha mop up all those delicious sauces. Would definitely eat here again when we next... More
