“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We have always had a great meal at the Regal. The service is consistently excellent and they cater very well for large groups. The food is reliably delicious. If you can forgive the 80s decor, then you can be guaranteed a lovely meal with friendly, efficient service. Highly recommended.

“Gteat Chinese restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

I've been going to the Regal for several years now, mainly for special occasions as we don't live near by. Every time has been an extremely pleasant experience and tonight was no exception.
The staff are friendly and we were seated quickly, however we did wait a little while for our drinks.
The food was lovely, and very tasty with a good choice of wines to accompany. The Regal never disappoints!

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

After seeing the trip advisor reviews i wasn't sure if going to this restaurants or not. The reviews were mixed and it ranked just after the Thai cottage which we really like.
The srvice was good, very friendly. But the food was terrible! Very bland and a bit cold. My sizilling dish wasnt siziling at all. And it wssn't cheap either... i don't think i will repeat rhe experience. Don't be confused by the mix reviews.

“Below average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We went to this restaurant as, to be honest, it was the only one with any tables available on a Saturday night. That should have been the first clue...

The interior is nice and the staff were friendly enough. The food however, was less than impressive. Most of our dishes were bland and tasteless and nothing really stood out. Rainbow beef was mainly vegetables without the beef, sweet and sour pork was neither sweet, nor sour - just dull and greasy. Most of our food was left on the plate, but no one asked if we'd enjoyed our meal.

We won't be visiting again, it's overpriced and the food is poor.
