This isn't the most convenient Chinese takeaway for where I live so I had never thought to try it until my daughter asked me to.
The menu is amazing. All the usual favourites are there but there is so much more. My particular favourite is the Mongolian Lamb curry but The Royale has also introduced me to frogs legs (something I swore I'd never eat) which were delicious.
We now use the Royale when there are a lot of us eating as large orders don't seem to faze them, I normally pick up to save on delivery but there have been occasions when laziness happens and I have found the delivery to be very timely.
I have noticed that the restaurant always seems empty (it doesn't help that it's so big) and I am now determined to do my bit to fill it as soon as I can by taking the family or friends (or even random friendly people) there for the all you can eat banquet.
Up until last night, we'd been using Lee Garden, but they weren't open on New Years Eve, so we went here instead. It was great. The place was heaving, but our food was pretty prompt. Got takeaway this time, but recon we'll go eat in at some point soon as the food was great!
This is really nice inside so it's a shame it looks a little shabby from outside. It's also a shame that it always seems to be empty these days, because this is actually a restaurant that has really good Chinese food at great value. They do an eat all you want offer, but rather than having the food out on a buffet table, they cook the food to order, and you just keep ordering and eating until you're full for the same price (about £13, I think). They do say that they cahrge for wastage (i.e. if you order a dish and don't eat it) which I think is reasonable. Go and try it!
