Hot, fresh, fast, quality Chinese food at a fair price. The wait staff could use a little improvement but all in all a great experience.

I recommend this restaurant to anyone. The sesame chicken & fried rice, shrimp fried rice, hunan & white rice, and egg rolls was awesomely delicious. The food delivery was quick, and staff was nice. Thanks so much!

Located in a strip mall with Hunan and Sichuan. Excellent food, including the best Sweet & Sour Shrimp, Kung Pao, and noodle dishes. Can't say much for the strip mall but this place is great. Great service. I came in, looked over the menu and decided to sit down and order. This place is out of place like a duck... More

We chose this restaurant while we were visiting Norfolk based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We have a family of 7, including 4 adopted from China. We had a variety of food and it was very tasty.. some remarked "best ever." Staff was wonderful. The strip mall it is located in is a bit rundown and the... More

I have eaten at Royal Garden several times for lunch. They have a nice lunch menu that is very inexpensive. The staff is very, very nice. I have enjoyed several of the lunch specials and will be back many times in the future.

They reheat the food from the day before until it's gone. I could tell bcuz the rice was hard and the chicken tasted microwaved.

The dining room is quite large - lots of small tables - and the evening we visited there were several families, elderly couples, and some solo eaters dining in. Service seemed good, but we chose to take-out. While we waited we sat at the bar in a clean, welcoming area (no smell at all, certainly NO carpet issues as an... More

After a full day on the beach,we were sitting around at the motel thinking about what to do for dinner. Someone suggested let's order Chinese. So we placed an order by phone at the Royal Garden located in a nearby shopping center. The person taking the order was very friendly and courteous and thanked us for calling. Very shortly, to...

I will not go back here because of the ambiance, there isn't a whole lot. I will go back because it is possibly the best Chinese food I have had here since living in the Chicago area 30 years ago. Back then you could throw a rock in any direction and hit a great pizza or Chinese place. Not so... More
