Well-located in the middle of Berko High Street. Friendly and good-humoured service. The set menu looked interesting and reasonably-priced, but we were quite late and not looking for a feast. Food was pretty good, especially the Peking duck. Good wine list, especially for a Chinese restaurant.

Set menu A as a take-away has to be as good as a take-away gets. The food is tasty and the mixed veg is genuinely delicious. As a family we never usually opt for a set menu but this one covers everyone's choices. We have chosen this option often for about 15 years and once decided to try set menu... More

Four of us have been visiting the Regal 2 or 3 times a year for several years so thought it was about time I posted a review. The food is consistently good - we always have a starter (mixed hors d'oeuvres plus a bit extra) and a few different mains, and whatever we choose the food is authentic, very tasty... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and never experienced any other than great food and excellent service. On our last visit the food was as usual very good but our visit this time was let down by the sullen and miserable attitude of the guy who served our table. Looking around at other diners who were being served... More

'Jackies' is the only place to go- consistently excellent food, coupled with top service from Alan and the team. Anyone who doesn't enjoy their night here is better off at home with a pot noodle! If you're in berkhamsted get down to the regal.

I love this place. The food is authentic, consistently good and tasty, the staff welcoming and fun and the place has a lively buzz about it. We regularly dine there with Chinese friends and they also think it's great. Jackie at front of house always provides a warm welcome and greets you as a friend.

Dinner tonight at The Regal celebrating with my girlfriend. Excellent meal and service with all the staff taking the trouble to sing happy birthday. A memorable night. Our favourite restaurant in Berkhamsted by far!

We came here with a friend on a Saturday night and the service was less than friendly and the food decidedly average. We had to remind them about our request for some water multiple times which was needed because the food was so salty. In fact my meal was the saltiest thing i've ever eaten, needed a lot of water...

We enjoyed a meal here but I found the food rather greasy at times. I have not found this before. Service was Ok and we enjoyed our meal. I would probably come again, have eaten there many times before but not for a few months.

The Regal always produces excellent food. You will struggle to order badly as all the dishes are well presented and great to taste. The salt and pepper prawns are a real favourite. Four stars, I would like to see some change on the menu, but I suppose if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
