An epicureans dream is how our Chinese restaurant has been described by one food magazine. Everything from the hand painted wash bowls in the toilets to the imported finest quality furniture has be meticulously hand picked to make The Royal Baths the very best restaurant it can be. We have spent in excess of 1.5 million pounds on the interior, maintaining the styles of the famous baths. Our chefs have come from the very best restaurants from around the world to bring you the delights of the East. We serve traditional food as well as cuisine you may not have seen before.

Royal Baths Chinese is worthy primarily for its amazing, architecturally superb room. It is part of the history of Harrogate, next to the Turkish Baths. The room, with its high ceilings, murals and columns has been sympathetically decorated to reflect its current use. This is a tourist restaurant, and regrettably the food could be better. Do NOT try the ‘set’... More

Visited here at 8 pm on a Friday evening. We didn't have a booking but, with a twenty min wait they fitted us in. Found it to be a bit expensive but we enjoyed it. Staff very pleasant.

The restaurant is situated in a beautiful building, the interior in particular was absolutely stunning. The menu was wide and varied. I even felt brave enough to try one of the chef's specials - Deep Fried Octopus Tentacles. Delicious! Everybody was extremely friendly, something I found about Harrogate on the whole. A very pleasant atmosphere. I read a few reviewers... More

You can't fail to be impressed at the inside of this restaurant - stunning. Service right from front of House is great and then once inside there is a vast space and plenty of room around your table - not squashed together like some. All courses of our meals were very nice indeed and the service from our waitress was... More

This was our second visit, the food is great with loads of variety. The location is fabulous with lots of historical detail. Our waitress Adeline made us very welcome, being very friendly, talkative and efficient. We always eat early so the restaurant was not too full but many people were starting to come in when we were leaving.
