“Fantastic takeaway - v.good quality ingredients”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The food was very good – of a high standard and very reasonably priced. We had take-way on Sunday evening. 10% off takeaways.

The hot and sour soup is highly recommended – contained all the traditional meat and vegetables that you would expect, including chicken strips, straw mushrooms, tofu and ‘fungus’ – not sure of the exact English term, to name a few.

Chicken, ginger and spring onions. A generous portion size. There was a lack of ginger though. But not a lack in flavour generally. It was nicely stir-fried with a home made taste, not overly salty, which is what you get from most take-aways nowadays.

Good quality ingredients, polite staff on phone, food out together well, a great takeaway!

I am an expert Chinese foodie, and highly rate the take-away from this restaurant. I will definitely order again. Go try it!

“Good Quality Food at an Excellent price”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

We've been eating at the Royal China as a family for 11 years. We discovered it by accident one day and have returned for countless family celebrations, mostly birthdays, and never tire of the place. They used to be in a different (larger) location in Henley, but moved to smaller, smarter premises a couple of years ago. They run an all you can eat formula, but with attentive table service and nice linen. Food is consistently good, piping hot and plentiful. The all you can eat menu is great value for families; we tend to have a drink on arrival and then switch to fragrant jasmine tea which is topped up with hot water throughout the meal. You can choose specific dishes if you wish, or just ask them to bring the set menu; in this way the delicious starters and the duck course will arrive as if by magic. The menu will return for the main course and there is lots of choice. There are apple fritters to finish for those with a sweet tooth. It should be noted that this chinese food does not leave you feeling dehydrated and ill the next day - it's definitely a cut above the rest, and far superior to many similar restaurants in the area that charge more money. Do give it a try, keep a local family-run restaurant in business, and enjoy!

“Not good value for money”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

I was in henley yesterday for an organ concert and decided to try this restaurant instead of going to Wetherspoons.wrong decision.I was offered the 5.99 menu which was described as a buffet but was really an "all you could eat" menu.Didnt fancy that so i tried the a la carte.Firstly i had the sweetcorn and chicken soup,which i enjoyed.I ordered lemon chicken and egg fried rice for my main course.What a disaster!The lemon chicken was probably the smallest portion i have ever been offered.it was overdone and hardly any lemon sauce on it.A small bowl of egg fried rice and a pot of tea which was one half usual size.This came to 11.70.I have rarely felt as dissatisfied as i did upon leaving this restaurant.Next time back to Wetherspoons.

“Like a Chinese? This one is value for money!!”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Really good value for money ....an all you can eat BUT served according to your order.......varied and comprehensive menu (23 starters) and you could choose up to 6 items each from the starter and main menu as well as a second course (Aromatic Crispy Duck) a limited desert choice but you haven't room, so its of no consequence. A meal for two with a glass of Red each came to £34.00. Enjoy!!!! Take away service and brunch menu.
