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...

After calling the restaurant to get a delivery for 6 people and having to wait 20 mins to explain to the driver where I was, I then got disconnected. On calling back I was told as I am 'very far away' (less than 25Km) the minimum order price would be SR500 ($133).
