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!

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.

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...More
