My boyfriend and I eat here very regularly. The food is always delicious and the service is friendly an efficient. My boyfriend's favourite dish is the Salt & Peppered Ribs starter (he usually doubles it up as a main), and I am slowly making my way through the whole menu! Julia (Ping), Hannah (Yen) and all the staff make every... More

On our recent trip to Galway our b and b hostess Edwina recommended this Chinese to us. Are we glad we took her advice, our meal was absolutely gorgeous. Staff extremely friendly and we will definitely be returning again.

Having eaten in many of the restaurants in Galway city over the years I can say without hesitation that the Royal Villa in Salthill is one of the best in quality. The service is second to none and the atmosphere is warm and relaxed without the pretentiousness which has crept into many of the local eateries. Will definitely be making... More

Happened to be passing and as I hadn't had Chinese in a while, decided to give Royal Villa a whirl! Boy, I wasn't left disappointed! Wonderfully fresh food packed full of flavour. Efficient service. Great choice. Good value. Nice ambiance; it was buzzing!

We went for a family meal in Royal Villa. I had been there before so I was looking forward to it. We went early so it was quiet. We ordered a platter - the skewers were supposed to be satay skewers so I was expecting a peanut satay sauce. Instead, we got a bland type of curry sauce. The ribs... More

Four of us visited in Dec 2013 and all of us ate from the special Christmas menu. All of us were raving about the food. Staff were pleasant and provided a good service. I wouldn't generally choose a Chinese restaurant for a meal out but would highly recommend this one! I will definitely go back again.

Food is lovely, had a three course meal with my partner and was very happy with the food. Service is fast and very friendly too. The lady serving us even brought out a hot plate to keep our dishes hot, nice thoughtful touch. First time trying after passing the place for years, will definitely go back.
