“We’re excited to come back to Las Vegas to offer the same authentic North Indian cuisine in an updated and newly renovated restaurant” says Lovepreet Singh, Catering Manager and Visionary of Royal India Bistro. “We’re focused on and influenced by traditional food preparation techniques, including our 500-degree tandoor clay ovens, ensuring that every dish is individually prepared delivering freshness and quality. Our kitchen cooks with the freshest vegetables, and each dish is infused with warmth using only original spices from India. Come and unfold the most intricate and traditional Indian flavors, here at Royal India Bistro.”
