Best Chinese in SATX

This restaurant has been around 15+ years. They do not advertise. The business is strictly via customers. When in the medical center area stop by. They have lunch/early bird/dinner specials. Try the chicken corn soup.

I've eaten here twice now when I've visited San Antonio and can't wait to go back on my next visit. The food is amazing! We started our meal with a wonderful jasmine tea and they brought it in a thermos type of container so it stayed nice and hot, and there was a LOT of it. We then ordered the... More

They have a good menu selection, good size portions, good prices, great tasting food and they deliver. What more could you ask for? I will be ordering from them again.

Stopped in on my way out of San Antonio. Food was served surprisingly fast, service was friendly and never had ask for refills. Food was good. Portions were more than adequate and we ended up with leftovers to take home. Always a plus. And with prices on most of the dishes being under 10 dollars, I was more than satisfied... More

I love the food but the service is a little strange. They have the habit of bring my husband's food first and then mine or vice versa. Rarely do the plates come together.

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.
