Bad service , good food and none friendly staff. You have to ask for salt and black pepper. Even the Chinese sauce is not on the table. The waiter did not ask for drinks to be served. Ignorance is the nature of practice. The sizzling beef is not well cut and cooked. The chicken meet was cut into weird slices.

I admit I love dim sum and have eaten it in many cities. Since we were staying at the Ala Moana Hotel I couldn't wait to taste dim sum in the Royal Garden. The place is what I call a classic formal Chinese restaurant with heavy red and gold decor. The service was quite good and the carts came often.... More

Food taste ok. No wow factor. I had 3 times for lunch and dinner while staying at Ala Moana hotel. Expensive though in my views for Chinese food. But it may be an island thing in general. Did not have Dim Sum. Heard great things about it, however.

Very authentic and great quality food. Service what you would expect in a Yum Cha place - quick and friendly. Particulalrly good feng zhao and gai lan. In America you sometimes get American influenced Chinese food but this was as good as anything I've had in Hong Kong or Guanghou.

Now I went back with my wife and 2 kids (yes the same date!) and had a fantastic dinner and experience. the restaurant was not crowded but the service was top notch. The style was authentic Hong Kong and was... More

12 of us were hosted for dinner that included PekingDuck, curried scallops in a conch shell, steamed chicken & ham soup with tremella, Maine lobster, steamed fish with ginger, baked rock salt free-range chicken, tofu with bamboo shoots, E-mein with shredded duck an capped off with baked tapioca pudding. Add some chardonney and cabernet and you've got a great meal.

It was tasty and we all like the food at both occasions. We are coming back next month! We liked their noodle dish with crispy noodles with gravy sauce with seafood in it. We liked dim sum with sticky rice wrapped in green bamboo leaf. Pot stickers, shrimp dumplings, dessert pies are also delicious! We highly recommend this restaurant. Traveler... More

Extremely surprised how nice this restaurant is in the Ala Moana Hotel. Very spacious with lots of room and seating. Very classy looking place. Dining party of six for a business meeting. Easy to converse with a certain degree of privacy with lots of room between tables. This was on a week day evening and the restaurant had a small... More

As we stayed at the Ala Moana Hotel we decided to try this restaurant although a bit apprehensive of a Chinese restaurant located in a hotel. Having lived in Hong Kong for 20 years we have a good understanding of Chinese food. This one did not disappoint! Good food in a conventional Chinese atmosphere complemented by good efficient service and... More
