I lived for a year in Beijing and seldom ate anything but Chinese food, so maybe my expectations are too high. Still, this is where I eat, whether take out or eating in the restaurant, when I'm visiting my fiancée in New Jersey. There are a lot of ways of cooking Szechuan-style food. This isn't the best I've had, by... More

Our favorite for Chinese take-out, although I have eaten the buffet there on occasion. They are very prompt, courteous and gracious. We have never had a mistake in an order and there is good quantity for your money. Traditional Chinese menu, no real American dishes. But you don't go there for American dishes!

The shrimp and Chinese eggplant is my absolute favorite. The shrimp are very large not the usual tiny shrimp you get in most Chinese restaurants. Staff are very accommodating.

Sugar and cornstarch prevail. Several entrees look alike, taste alike. But really there aren't any better Chinese restaurants in the vicinity.

We have been dining in for several years. Food is consistent and well prepared. Most of the time we see take out orders leaving by the dozen. We enjoy the dine in experience here. Food is fresh and delish and service is okay. Best spareribs...hands down.

I have been going to Szechuan Royale since I was a teenager. It is a eat-in/take-out restaurant. They have a great lunch buffet....small about 6-7 items.... but well worth it for the price and quality of the food. Christine has been in business forever....she has seen my kids grow-up...Their fried rice is the best around along with all their food.... More

Szechuan Royale is a combination sit down/take out Chinese restaurant. I have eaten there for luncheon buffets, but the majority of the time we call in for take out. Tonight we called for Lo Mein, and Scallops with Vegetables. We also ordered spring rolls. The service is incredibly fast. It is always ready by the time I get there from... More

This restaurant never disappoints. It is always the same good quality, reasonably priced. The proprietor Kristine is always courteous and friendly - very hard working! They have all you can eat buffet most days except Sunday? Closed Monday,The buffet does not have everything but substantial and good.

I have been here several times, but this was the best. I can't recall exactly what I ordered, but whatever it was, it was enyoyable. I would not hesitate to return. The ambience is good, not exceptional, and the service was very good.
