A colleague and I needed to take a break, and Gulf Royal, located in the al Rashid Mall in Khobar, had been recommended. I generally have low expectations for restaurants in this area, so I was wonderfully surprised here. The waitstaff were very attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. We order chicken dumplings that were amazing, with multiple sauce options (I loved... More

Really like this place - it is one of the better Chinese places in Al Khobar. Has open seating and do not mind a woman on her own dropping in for a quick meal while shopping

The restaraunt located in the Rashid Mall is easy to find out. And its menu contains abundant chinese food for selecting and most of them are very chinese from their name. However, the taste is not so delicious as I ate in China. Even some of the dishes the taste is strange. What's more, the price here is expensive.

Gulf Royal is a restaurant i used to go to as a kid and has always been the best Chinese i've ever had.. The khobar branch has held up to this reputation with great quality food.. Only hic up was the fact that several items available on the menu couldn't be ordered...

I go to dine here every now and then with my friends, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is a key element in the enjoyment. Not every Chinese restaurant is good at The hot and sour soup, but here, it was above standards. Most of the dishes are above standards, but not exactly the best among other good Chinese... More
