The Regal delivers tried and trusted Chinese food year after year, time after time, to a very good standard.

This place is just plain bad. Most incompetent service I have ever received! Will NEVER return. I'd give zero stars if I could. Take my advice on go to 'Thai Cottage' next door, where you'll get excellent, reasonably priced food. Avoid 'The Regal' at all costs!

We were a party of 6, warmly greeted when we arrived, very pleasant decor, good attentive service, no complaints on the food front, well cooked very tasty, nicely presented. No real issues with anything, surprised how quiet it was, by 9pm we had the only table that was occupied. With the number of restaurants in Berkhamsted all vying for business... More

Since the Wendover Peking closed, we have been looking for a good local Chinese restaurant - this wasn't it! A surly miserable waiter took us to our table, none of the staff were particularly interested in engaging with us. We had the worst mixed hors d'oeuvres we have ever had, followed by an average aromatic duck. My husband had sizzling... More

We came here in celebration of a 90th birthday and were a table of 14, including five children the oldest of whom was 10, and the staff accommodated us wonderfully. With the whole family being very familiar with Chinese food, and with the need to accommodate the aforementioned children, we had pre-ordered the food and despite this, there was nothing... More

Just had an excellent value for money birthday meal for my daughter. After 20 plus years of trading the food and service must rank as the top Chinese in West Herts

Popped here for an early lunch with my family, and the food was pretty average. Staff seemed nice enough, and there were a couple of interesting special dishes. However overall it's a pretty unremarkable decor/atmosphere, the food was "alright", but it was very heavy on msg... There are much better places to eat in Berkhamsted.

We went for a quick lunch, we were one of 2 couples in the whole place, crispy duck starter was OK and what you'd expect. The main course of Chicken and cashew nuts was very salty and inedible, the beef in black been sauce was like chewing rubber bands! They charge service, and 2 small coke were £5! Won't be... More

I ate here recently with friends on a weekday evening. We all think that the food is very good, there's a good selection, and the service is attentive (although I've never eaten there on a busy evening). I've eaten here a number of times and I always look forward to a visit.
