Royal Asian Dining & Bar

This time around, we visited a relatively new Asian cuisine restaurant located in the heart of Furumachi that is run by a Nepalese chef with over 20 years of experience in the kitchens in Nepal, India, Tokyo, and now Niigata.

Opened in December of 2017, this restaurant offers a variety of Asian dishes but the best sellers are definitely those from the chef’s home country-Nepal.

Lunch menu

Lunch sets are offered during the day, and multi-course meals are available at dinner, both with vegetarian options. There is also a lunch buffet on the weekends where you have all-you-can-eat of all three of the most popular curries, naan, rice, salad, achato, and papado.


Triple curry set

For lunch most of us got the curry set, each choosing the kinds of curry that we would like as well as the spiciness (the “regular/medium spicy” is “normal” by Nepalese standards). This set also comes with tandoori chicken, rice, all-you-can-eat naan, dessert, salad, and a drink.

The naan here is completely homemade, made in the traditional oven, absolutely delicious, and did I mention that you can have as many as you want?

For the rice, they actually use Niigata grown rice for serving with the curry and long grain rice for the biriyani and other fried rice dishes.


Gapao rice set

One of us did choose to be different (so we had variety in dishes pictured) and got the gapao rice set. This set also came with a salad and set drink but surprisingly comes with your choice of curry as well.
While the lunch menu has a relatively simple variety, the grand/dinner menu has a huge selection with a lot of traditional foods, particularly from Nepal.

The chef recommends the momo, samosas, and tandoori chicken and said they are best sellers. For those who want to know what everyday food is like in Nepal, he recommends the sets on the last page.
The seating area is spacious, with separate areas for smoking and non smoking seating, so you can relax, listen to the traditional Nepalese music or yoga tunes that they play through the restaurant, and enjoy a great and filling meal
