It’s called Royal Rasoi, Flavor of India, 24288 Swartz Dr., Lake Forest, CA 92630, Ph 949-454-9600.
It’s located off of El Toro Rd, the very first street north of the 5 in the shopping center with Big 5 Sporting Goods and Tommy’s Burger. If you’ve reached Muirlands, you’ve gone too far. The food is excellent, very reasonably priced, generous portions and best Naan I’ve ever had in my life! The ambiance is simple but lovely.
They also have a buffet 7days/week, 11am-3pm, $9.99. Haven’t tried it yet but I will next week. My very picky best friend, who is from India, gives it thumbs waaaay up. She heard about this place from other Indian friends who said it was excellent. If you’re worried about the food being too hot or spicey, just tell the server when you order your preference – they can prepare it so its not spicey and ‘hot’ at all or whatever your preference.
