I stopped here many times for lunch when I am working in the area...The Generals chicken.....The finest white meat chicken, not the trims that some use and cover them with batter....I highly recommend this dish as well as anything else on the menu..

Drinks are great. The new owners did a nice job renovating....but the food is only fair it's just not the same under new owners.

This was always my favorite Chinese food! It closed last year and my family ,friends ,and I never found any food the same. It was so disappointing, we also were not sure if it was going to reopen. The food is still the same fresh and tasty! We are all running there for our lunch and dinners and so is... More

I routinely eat here when on business in Wakefield. The takeout service is so fast, I usually don't order ahead. It is ready before I am done checking my email! Surprisingly, rice is not included with most meals, so make sure you ask for it if you want it (I'm a noodle guy, but my wife likes it). It is... More

My family and I have been eating at Royal Garden for over 20 years. We have never been dissatified the food is always fresh. However, the bluiding is run down and they should move and find a close by.

Friendly folks, bar to have an adult beverage while you wait for your order to go (don't call it in in advance and enjoy a break) ... very good food at a reasonable price. Recommended by a fellow worker, and he was right.

Go and sit in the bar. Order a mai tai... If you start there the rest will be very enjoyable and fun. With the two Paul's at the Bar the banter is awesome, service is very good and the food is excellent. Actually, the Mrs isn't big on chineese food but this is where she insists on going. We love...

It was standard Chinese food. It was good, but did not make my list of most favorite Chinese restaurants. It does the job of providing a good Chinese meal for a great value and is worth stopping in at least once.
