We were introduced to this restaurant by our very good friends who have been going there for years. They hosted a birthday party there and everyone raved about the food. This past weekend, they catered a fundraiser at a local theater. Not only did they serve everything in a timely manner, but they actually cooked the food right outside the... More

Love the food at Royal Inn and everyone is so nice. Great prices for lunch and dinner. They even give soup with to go orders. I like the sesame chicken and triple delight. If you in Med Center it's worth the trip.

This is one of the family favorites. I've been eating here for about 9 years. Food is great, service is excellent and is a great place for families.

There are several well-regarded Asian restaurants in the Medical Center, some so popular you have to wait in line on a week day for lunch. However, none of these can compare to the Royal Inn. It is very low key and quiet with tables well spaced from each other. The service is extremely polite and friendly with no exception. They... More

My wife and I went there on the recommendation of a friend. All tastes are not created equal, however, I must say this was the worst chinese food I ever had in a restaurant. I ordered the General Tsoa chicken, which tasted like BBQ chicken. My wife ordered the lemon chicken which was breaded and came with a lemon sauce... More

Have visited this restaurant many times. Food is consistently good, not gourmet but tasty. Very reasonably priced.

My mother and I visited the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. This is our favorite Chinese food restaurant. The restaurant was not full, but the servers were professional polite, and prompt. The owner even helped my mother to place her cane in an appropriate place at our table. The atmosphere is always welcoming. The service is consistent, the food is... More
