We have now travelled to this restaurant on five occasions and each time the meal was excellent and very good value for money. One of the things that puts me off eating Chinese food is that it can be very salty, given the liberal use of sodium monoglutamate in some Chinese restaurants. However, as we have never travelled the 140 miles home and become dry or thirsty I assume that the food is spared the excesses of the dreaded additive E121.
We have tried many dishes over the five visits and all have been very good, with the exception of the chicken curry I had last week. I didn't like the texture of the chicken and I will stick to dishes with beef or pork in future. It's just personal preference and there was nothing about the dish that gave the impression of poor quality.
The service we have received has always been friendly and helpful. The toilets seem to be clean and well stocked with soap and paper towels.
In terms of accessibility, if you use a wheelchair then you would be able to sit at a table and enjoy a meal but getting to a bathroom would be impossible.
Judging by the number of people who use the restaurant, including a steady stream of take away orders being collected, the Royal China obviously has a good reputation locally but it is worth a journey out from Aberdeen or further afield. We enjoy the drive to Peterculter along the A93 and through Royal Deeside, which has many places to stop for a walk and/or a coffee and scone if you want to make a day or an afternoon and evening of the trip.
