This little gem is peppered with authentic Cantonese dishes usually reserved for Chinese menus alone. I did inquire if there was a Chinese menu, for I usually order from the Chinese menu instead of the regular "American" menu. Hands down, Royal China has one of...More

I read one of the reviews that refers to this place as dimly lit. That’s because it appears it hasn’t been cleaned since the 80’s. The menu is tired & sad just like the dining room.

All of the food I have tried has been really good. We have been here at least 100 times. The crabmeat won ton is great. Other favorite dishes include, pan fried shrimp dumplings, garlic shrimp, and sesame chicken.

My family went there for the Dragon Dumplings, which were good. However I was not pleased with the service. I felt very unappreciated and it took a long time for the food to come out. In addition, while we were there a group came in...More

Please do not go here. They do no value customers. Horrific customer service and just ok food. P.F. Chang's is better and more friendly.
