I loved all the different types of food. On weekends it's all-you-can-eat lobster or crab legs too. It is a little pricey but worth it.

I think I've been here more than 10 times. I love it here. Food is freshly made and the restaurant is clean. It tends to be very busy, but what do you expect? With a different variety of foods at a reasonable print, who wouldn't want to go? All you can eat lobster is on Wednesdays and Fridays.

$124 for 4 people. Many different food options and I tried several. Some food good, other food quite poor and tasteless. Others in my party had crab legs and lobster and commented that these were very good. Very disappointed with the people serving the food. Several of the servers would not even smile at me. Wake up people, this is... More

First - entry doors. Main center doors are always close and everyone need to squeeze thru a narrow side door. The manager in one second ruined all positive experience accumulated for years of visiting this restaurant. We just tried to express opinion on the small issue - there were no lobsters on the day when they were supposed to be,... More

My husband and I have visited this place at least 5 times already and we have enjoyed it each time. Very good food with a huge variety. So far Royal buffet is one of our favorite places to eat.

Invited by family living in the area. Had dinner on a Wednesday evening which turned out to be seafood night. The restaurant was full. Long line up for lobster where there was a limit in the amt of lobster to take. Takes about 15 mins to get your lobster. Wide variety of food, Mongolian, Japanese & Chinese dishes. Food quality...

This buffet tries to resemble what is like in LV, but the quality si not there, the taste is average, or must of the cooked dishes have similar taste, The variety is impressive. If you are graving for different kinds of dishes in one meal, you should go there to give it a try. If you pay attention to the... More

I thought that buffets just cannot have any docent food before we decided to try Royal buffet. They serve variety of food from Mongolian grill to sushi , oysters and chocolate fountain. They also have crab nights when you can eat crabs till you die those days cost a little extra. 18$ lunch 24 $ dinner and 27 crab night.
