West Seattle restaurants: New owners for Royal India Grill

Following up on tips that the Royal India Grill in The Admiral District – on the market for months – had new owners, WSB’s Katie Meyer caught up with them for a photo and quick chat:

The new proprietors of the Royal India Grill are Baldev Grewal and his wife Rawinder. He ran an Indian restaurant in Phoenix (Taste of India) for 21 years. When asked why he left Arizona to buy a restaurant in Seattle, he told us that he used to live in Seattle, and has friends here – adding that the economy here is better than in Phoenix. He and Rawinder now live in West Seattle, and note they enjoy meeting so many “nice people here in West Seattle.”

As new owners, they’ve added Sunday lunch to their hours of operation; no major changes to the menu, but they may fine-tune it a little bit, “later on.” Royal India Grill is at 2342 California SW (and in the WSB West Seattle Restaurant Guide).

  3. Look forward to trying. Have ate at Royal India many times over the years.
    I looked at the reviews of their previous Phoenix establishment and hope Royal India can well exceed the low to mediocre reviews.
