While a limited buffet is available, I love this place for the egg rolls and egg drop soup. Menu items come with large portions.

A small restaurant featuring a wide variety of Chinese foods, this place can be very busy on weekends. The decor is simple but clean and well kept. The seafood in a nest was very nice. Friendly service, fair prices. Noise level is medium to high when crowded.

What's not to tell.....Royal China has been here for like ever and a day! Ms. Shirley knows everybody and makes sure that everybody eats very well. The Hot & Sour soup is the best we have ever had from Florida to California! The Dim Sum is what my wife and I come for and it is a 120 mile round... More

This is small but very well run place. The food seems to be cooked to order so it may be a little slow but nothing too silly. The prices are reasonable and food is great.

Had a very nice dinner tonight at the Royal China on Vets in Metairie -- good good sized platters -- real tasty choices -- sometimes lacking attention to detail of the basics. Not a real biggie but keeps it from a 5. Would go back cuz we enjoyed.

I came here based on the reviews. The food was good and all of the portions were large. My husband and I had house fried rice, which we had to take half with us because of the portion size. The shrimp roll was full of shrimp and nothing else was in it - but I didn't mind since the shrimp... More

Ordered a take away... food was ready on-time and the portions were very reasonable. The sesame toast shrimp was excellent and the spring rolls even better! Fried chicken rice was also tasty. A good meal.m

I have had Chinese in China, Japan, Europe the US and around the globe. This is one of the best and better than most in Hong Kong or Taiwan. Everything was outstanding. The portion were large and more than enough for two. The fried rice was wonderful and expect to take enough left overs for another meal. Everyone was extremely... More
