Royal Palace and Castle Royale: Two Local Gems in Westchester

Local businessman and restaurateur Jagdish Mitter firmly believes in the power of creating lasting memories surrounding life’s events. This dedication is on full display in Mitter’s commitment to providing personal, memorable celebrations at the family’s two Westchester venues, the Castle Royale and the Royal Palace. A longstanding presence in the Westchester community, Mitter was recently joined by his children in operating these two family businesses.

Royal Palace

Jagdish Mitter’s desire to create an unforgettable experience led him to open the Royal Palace in White Plains, making his dream of leading an authentic Indian restaurant a reality. As an Indian immigrant from humble beginnings, he is very proud of his first successful venue. Royal Palace, a popular destination for those seeking genuine Indian cuisine, has delighted the community for over 25 years and was recently redesigned with a fresh look and an enticing new menu.

“We are excited about our recent renovation and our new menu offerings,” said Jagdish Mitter. “Our family invites the community to come and experience the authentic taste of Indian cuisine that reflects our Punjabi heritage.” Known for its weekend buffets, the Royal Palace also offers an intimate yet spacious catering hall, providing in-house banquets for baby showers, engagement parties, weddings and local business events, with accommodations for up to 200 guests. We also offer full catering for off-site events as well.

Castle Royale

Castle Royale, which previously served as the area’s Polish Center, has been operating as a full-service banquet hall for over a decade. Conveniently located on Waverly Street in Yonkers, Castle Royale offers comprehensive event planning and complete catering services for weddings, quinceañeras, sweet sixteens, bridal showers, corporate events, retirement parties and much more!


“At Castle Royale, we want to make your event personal and memorable,” Mitter said. “In addition to our event planners and caterers, we have a team of professional consultants who work from start to finish, assisting with every aspect of planning your dream event.” Castle Royale offers two ballrooms: a majestic Empress Grand Ballroom for larger gatherings and a smaller, more intimate Duchess Ballroom. Each space boasts its own distinctive charm, ensuring the perfect backdrop for special occasions.


The in-house culinary team at Castle Royale is renowned for its creativity and demonstrated ability to create a range of savory, personalized menu options. “Our team of experienced chefs uses locally sourced and sustainably grown ingredients to create delicious, beautifully presented dishes, which really makes every event unique and memorable,” said Mitter.  With these two local venues, Mitter continues his community-led and serving business mission and is actively involved in local government and cultural, non-profit, and spiritual organizations.
