Good menu choices with a few delicacies. Good service. Will also prepare for carry-out to room. Casual dress is okay even though wait staff is formally dressed.

We shared special fried rice and sweet & sour pork and both dishes were very good. Service was quick and the food was hot.

“Great Chinese food”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We return to Honolulu at least once a year and Royal Garden remains a favorite due to its location in the Ala Moana hotel and the lovely decor, which means you pay a little more. The service is friendly and efficient. We recommend the house pan fried noodles, which is more than enough for two people. With that we had a seafood egg drop soup, again more than enough for 2 people. Also went for a dim sum lunch with the family and everyone thought the dim sum was excellent. the egg custard tarts are flaky and the custard is light, not like pudding. The seafood bundle was especially tasty, bean curd wrapped around seafood and steamed. The sesame seed balls, Jin dui, were light and warm, not greasy. Quiet atmosphere, good for conversation.

“Average”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

Landed here on a --previously reliable sources-- recommendation and despite the nicer than expected
atmosphere and snappily attired Staff. I've had better Dim Sum (nearly anywhere).
Friendly service but truly underwhelming texture, flavors, and selection especially for a visit during prime Dim Sum time. Not a repeater.
