“August visit to the China Royal”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We are still returning to the China Royal for our excellent evening meals, and our last visit was on 5th September. The food was up to it's normal good standard, and this time, I'll show pics of the starters we had. The first is the salt and pepper king prawns which are cooked in batter with chilli and garlic garnish, very nice. The second dish is their satay king prawns and chicken, I ate some of these before I took the photo. As I said before you can eat as much as you like. Hope it's ok to include part of the menu.

“Mmmmmmm crispy aromatic duck... Prawn toast.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Chinese buffett
Eat all you can. So we did abuse the duck and Prawn toast. Chicken satay is good.
43 quid for 3,including drinks. Fast turn over feel rushed but hay its cheap and sheek. And we was allowed to keep our chop sticks.... They said not many people know how to use them in bognor regis. Don't expect the best. It's good for a cheap night out.

“Great value food in unappealing part of town”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

At their recommendation, I went here with two friends who live near Bognor (I was in the middle of touring the south coast). At first sight, the place didn't grab me, as the area looks rough and the premises are a bit run-down. However, all hesitation went once I'd tasted the food. We went on a Saturday evening and ate from the 'all you can eat' menu. The food was tasty and fresh - a cut above most local Chinese restaurants. At £14 a head, it was great value and I'd certainly go back there when visiting the friends again.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This was an all-round great restaurant.
The staff were welcoming and efficient, the restaurant was clean and nicely decorated, the food was excellent. It's an all-you-can-eat concept with just drinks and desserts extra, so you're not going to go hungry and there's no nasty surprises when you come to pay.
We went as a family - two adults and two moody teenagers and even the youngsters were impressed! There was a lovely selection of food to choose from and each dish was delicious. It's a fantastic way to try new things. I would recommend to anyone.
