The first time we visited Royal Villa, in Salthill, Galway, we described our experience as “Perfect”. Our most recent visit, last week, brought us very close to using the same descriptive. We arrived a little early and were quickly shown to our table. The view over Galway bay is incomparable, and added greatly to our enjoyment of the evening. I... More

We ordered a range of dishes from the Royal Villa Chinese Restaurant in Salthill and had it delivered to our accommodation and it really was just awful. We saw good reviews on Trip Advisor so decided to take a chance and quite frankly aside from a plain noodle dish and some boiled rice - most of the food was not... More

Nice setting. One plate of Noodles that cost over €20 and were the equivalent of a white bread sandwich. Filling but not much to them. My wife had Thai green curry. Hunks of bland chicken and a grey gloopy sauce that must have been opened out of a packet. If it was made from scratch as the manager said then... More

We didn't feel immediately welcome as when we arrived there was still 40 minutes left of service and we were told only main courses, this is not reasonable as my partner is a Chinese chef as is many of his family and dishes are cooked within seconds if not minutes. There was also another table there who were served a... More

After a gorgeous sunny day in Galway, salthill was booming so we dropped into Royal villa for food and sundowners. We sat by the window and watched everyone enjoying the sun! I had the weekend specials and they were delicious. The bacon and cabbage rolls on a bed of mash were delicious followed by pan fried seabass on a bed... More

I really hoped for good things coming here but unfortunately was disappointed. I ordered the General Tso chicken but the chicken was quite tough and flavour was fairly bland. I also tried the BBQ ribs but they were really tough! My gf had the vegetable spring rolls which had a nice pastry but overall bland taste- She had the Vegetable... More

Eat here for both takeaway and sit down often enough. Always been good. In fairness they're around a long time so definitely doing something right. I like consistency and that's what they're great at.
