Not your typical small town Chinese restaurant. The food was excellent .. fresh and well prepared. I was very impressed. The prices were a bit high though.

Ginger beef, did not taste fresh, the spice did not taste good. Don't waste your time and money, find another place to go.

Royal Garden has been run by Chinese chefs and restaurant owners for many years and I have yet to have a bad dish there. The buffet was always plentiful with western desserts and the table service, by the owners and staff, was attentive. These enterprising people cater to individuals and families, but also to tour buses, which we often see... More

The food was good but it took an hour and a half to get it. We sat down at 510 and didn't get our food till 645.

Just chanced upon this restaurant on our way to Jasper. I didn't expect it to be so lovely. It was very clean and food was great. The service was excellent, very quick. My little boy broke the ceramic spoon but the owner was so gracious as not billing us for it. I would dine here again.

The restaurant was not set up for couples so felt a bit uncomfortable sitting at a table for 6. We were not the only couple. Waitress was very busy but attentive and friendly. Plenty of dishes to choose from but we went with standard combo plates. It was ok at about 14.00 per plate. Most plates would be about 20.00.

Dining in at this restaurant was a little unexpected. I would have pictured a typical Chinese restaurant; however, the décor is actually kind of neat and the menu has a bit of uniqueness to it. The generic Chinese food has always been quite good but the specialty plates are what I'd boast about. Overall, fairly average food.

Being right next door they should waive the delivery charge. I am sure many guests from the Motel eat at this establishment.

We were driving through Hinton and saw this restaurant by chance. They were just about to finish serving for the night but they welcomed us warmly. The food was excellent! Delicious, generous portions and great value for money (esp the combos that combine 4 meals for only $12.99). The staff were very attentive and friendly too. I would strongly recommend... More

Although this is not the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant, it definitely is fine Chinese dining. It's difficult to compare this with gourmet restaurants I've dined on, but this restaurant can certainly hold their own if one is wanting to dine on Chinese food. Besides offering Chinese food, they have other choices to meet most people's taste.... More
