Review: A Taste of History and Culture with Royal Taj 
With many of us spending most of our times at home, you will easily run out of food choices. However, this is the best time to try out cuisines from other cultures. Having tried Thai food, Korean food, Western food, Chinese food, Halal food, we decided to order some Indian food. Thus, we found Royal Taj @ Sentosa. Here I will share with you my Royal Taj review.
In the words of restaurant manager Abhishek Kumar: “Here you can find mouthwatering & sizzling hot tandoori appetizers, Indian curries, biryanis, and buttery naans prepared (to) utmost perfection”. There are buffet meals, à la carte options, executive lunch sets as well as a comprehensive bar with wines, single malts and spirit-based cocktails.
Wide Variety of Gravy and Sauces
We have ordered food that rounded up to $135. The delivery was fast, and the food that arrived was still piping hot. This was good as we did not need to reheat the food.
We had ordered Chicken Malai Kebab, Royal Taj Butter Chicken, Royal Dal Makhni, Palak Paneer, Cocktail Samosa, Gulab Jamun and Garlic Naan. This order was more than enough to feed over 3 pax.
Garlic Naan with Butter Chicken
Our top favourite is the Garlic Naan. We dipped the naan with their Royal Dal Makhni, Palak Paneer and Royal Taj Butter Chicken. Out of these 3, we preferred the Butter Chicken gravy. The butter chicken did not taste as heavy as it looks, and there was no greasy taste.
However, we do have to comment on the Palak Paneer. This gravy was surprisingly our second favourite. Personally not a fan of cottage cheese, this dish did not have a heavy cheese taste nor a strong spinach taste. It was sweet and light, which compliments the garlic naan well.
For the Dal Makhni, its texture feels a little similar to sardine’s paste. You can taste a complex combination of spices and herbs with a hint of smokiness.
We ordered Samosa as 1 of our side dishes. This will never go wrong if you are craving curry puffs. Furthermore, the fillings were generous. And, the skin is tougher compared to the triangular ones, which will turn soggy after some time.
We also had this salad filled with vegetables, lemon and onions. We added in the sauces to try, and we were quite fascinated with the Gulab Jamun. This sauce had some prune-like looking ingredient, which gave a good combination of sweet and a slight hint of sour.
Chicken Malai Kebab
The chicken was a good appetiser after having all the heavy dishes. We could taste hints of light cream and spices with the chicken, which helps to cleanse our taste bud of all the gravy we had previously. On a side note, I think this is a good dish to go with or without rice.

With that, this is the end of my Royal Taj review. We had tried Indian food for the first time. This will not be our last, though we are still new to appreciating Indian food.
